Overview of the Axis P3225-VE Mk II

This versatile dome IP camera delivers HD 1080p resolution video, round the clock at up to 50 frames per second (fps). Its outdoor-ready housing is IK10 rated to provide robust protection in exposed areas – indoors or outdoors. A range of Axis’ advanced imaging technologies are supported for clear image capture in difficult lighting conditions and the unit can be easily installed via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE). Additional features include Zipstream technology and MicroSD card storage.

The unit’s varifocal lens provides wide horizontal views (up to 92°) and allows the desired viewing angle to be easily set during installation. Areas of interest can be monitored closely using the camera’s multi-streaming feature which allows specific regions in the field of view to be cropped and streamed separately for live viewing or recording.

WDR - Forensic Capture renders details evenly in strongly backlit scenes, allowing objects and individuals to be identified more clearly, and Axis’ Lightfinder provides full colour viewing in ambient light extremes. In addition, Axis Corridor Format is a helpful feature that maximises area coverage and reduces bandwidth in narrow scenes by vertically orientating the video stream.

Users can install the Axis Companion application, a simple video management solution for up to 16 IP cameras, to provide remote access to live views and recording playback. This free software is available as a PC client and mobile application for both iOS and Android devices.

Configurable video motion detection and tampering alarms can alert users of activity via a range of notifications including email. Users can also set these motion detection alarms to trigger recording to the on-board MicroSD card (not included) when using the Axis Companion mobile app.

Installation is simplified with support for PoE and the unit’s remote zoom and focus feature eliminates the need for hands-on fine-tuning at the camera. Axis Zipstream technology analyses and optimises the video stream in real time, recording important details in high quality, whilst filtering out other areas to help reduce bandwidth and storage use.

Please note: this camera does not come with a power supply, please select a PoE midspan from the above drop down menu if required.
