Overview of the Axis P3738-PLE outdoor multi-sensor camera

  • Providing a cost-effective alternative to 4 separate cameras, with four individual sensors this camera produces a seamless 360° view or individual video streams.
  • Built on the innovative ARTPEC8 chipset, allowing it to benefit from deep learning analytics.
  • Capture clear video in complete darkness with four individually controllable OptimisedIR LEDs.
  • High-level cybersecurity features such as Axis Edge Vault protect the camera from harmful code and unauthorised access.
  • In very low light, Lightfinder helps to deliver full-colour footage so no details are lost to difficult lighting.

Part of the P37-series of multi-sensor cameras by Axis, the P3738-PLE offers a cost-effective alternative to a multi-camera system, allowing you to capture four different views, or a 360° overview, from a single unit. As the highest resolution model in the P37 range, this camera features four individually controllable sensors that deliver 4K video at up to 15fps. Built on Axis’ latest ARTPEC-8 chipset, this camera can make use of its DLPU and highly intelligent analytics to improve scene awareness. Built with an IP66/67 weather shield to protect it from inclement weather and IK09-rated aluminium casing, this camera is suitable for use in exposed outdoor locations such as train platforms and city centres.

Imaging and Optics

Ideal for wide-area surveillance, this camera can not only produce seamless 360° views but can also be adjusted to deliver 270° corner views or four individual views. Each sensor features a 3.2mm – 8.1mm varifocal lens enabling you to set the desired viewing angle for each sensor individually. With flexible positioning, each sensor can be rotated and rolled, which also enables two sensors to be positioned closer together for one to capture the wide view and the other to zoom in on the same target. True day/night video capture is available for round-the-clock monitoring, and in the dimmest conditions, down to 0.19lux, Lightfinder technology produces full-colour footage. Equipped with individually controllable 360° OptimisedIR LEDs, the camera is able to produce clear monochrome imaging up to 15m from the camera, even in total darkness (add external illumination for further distance). Additionally, its Forensic WDR not only balances out high-contrast in lighting, but also ensures that few motion artefacts are apparent in scenes with high levels of activity.

Video Analytics

Customisable and highly accurate, Axis Object Analytics is available on this camera, allowing you to detect and classify both humans and vehicles, whilst disregarding false triggers for more precise scene awareness. Enabling up to ten simultaneous detection scenarios across the 4 lenses, the camera’s detection can be adapted to your requirements. With metadata collection, footage can be easily searched through for quicker and more efficient investigation.

A range of additional Axis ACAP and 3rd party applications are available to tailor your system.

Installation and mounting options

Designed for cost-effective installation, the Axis P3738-PLE features Zipstream technology to retain the quality of important footage, whilst simultaneously lowering bandwidth and storage used. The camera also receives power and network connectivity via a single cable, thanks to PoE support. Remote zoom and focus capabilities allow you to adjust the camera’s view without the need for hands-on fine-tuning. Furthermore, with typical power consumption as low as 8.92W, this camera is able to run efficiently, reducing its impact on the environment and its running costs.

To mount this camera to a wall or a pole, the following accessories are required:

  • T94N01D + T91H61 brackets for wall mounting
  • T94N01D + T91B67 brackets for pole mounting

Accessories included

  • Installation guide
