Overview of the Axis M4318-PLVE outdoor fisheye dome

  • Captures high resolution 180° / 360° overviews at 12MP with Sharpdome 360 technology
  • Latest Axis ARTPEC-8 chipset for intuitive deep-learning analytics
  • Clear video capture in complete darkness with 15m of OptimisedIR
  • Built-in cybersecurity features safeguard the camera from unauthorised access and video tampering
  • Digital roll and compact size make the unit easy to install discreetly

The Axis M4318-PLVE is designed to provide sharp 12MP resolution hemispheric and panoramic overviews 24 hours a day. Built on Axis’ in-house designed ARTPEC-8 chipset and featuring a deep learning processing unit (DLPU), the M4318-PLVE offers powerfully enhanced imaging, cybersecurity and analytics. The camera incorporates a range of cybersecurity features, based on Axis Edge Vault, to ensure it is protected against cybersecurity threats. Due to its compact size and weather-resistant casing, this robust camera can fit into almost any outdoor space, such as car parks, petrol stations and transport hubs. 

Imaging and Optics

This high-performance fisheye dome delivers crisp 12 megapixel resolution video at up to 30 frames per second. Thanks to its stereographic lens and Sharpdome 360 technology, the 180°/360° views produced by this camera are sharp to the very edges of the image. The camera also supports dewarped views such as quad, panorama, corner, and corridor modes, as well as digital PTZ, enabling you to easily navigate around the entire area under observation. If lighting is low, the camera can still capture full-colour footage due to Axis Lightfinder technology, and the built-in OptimisedIR illumination with individually controllable LEDs enables footage to be seen in complete darkness without any IR reflection. Forensic WDR to 120dB enhances image quality in areas with difficult light conditions, balancing out lighting to ensure a fully usuable image is produced.

Video Analytics

Allowing you to define exactly what you want to detect, Axis Object Analytics provides highly intuitive and customisable object detection that intelligently analyses the scene to reduce irrelevant or false alerts. You can set up to ten simultaneous detection scenarios including line crossing, object in area and occupancy. Furthermore, the metadata gathered from the camera can be searched through based on humans, vehicles, vehicle colour and types of vehicle, making it easier to quickly find the CCTV footage you are after. 

Additional Axis applications and third-party applications are available for purchase or download for more bespoke requirements you may have.
