Overview of the Axis P5654-E

The Axis P5654-E is a high-performance outdoor PTZ camera with HD 720p resolution and delivers video at a smooth frame rate of up to 60fps. The lens offers a horizontal viewing angle of 77° providing wide area coverage and other features including support for H.265 video compression, Lightfinder 2.0. Forensic WDR and Electronic Image Stabilisation.

With Lightfinder 2.0, the camera is sensitive in low light conditions, delivering more saturated colour and reduced blurring of moving objects. Forensic WDR also improves image quality, balancing exposure levels between bright and dark areas and reducing visible noise and video artefacts for a sharper result - especially with movement in the scene.

Support for the latest H.265 video compression format results in lower bandwidth streaming and reduced total storage costs of recorded video. With Axis Zipstream the bandwidth usage can be decreased further by using a lower bitrate for insignificant details within a scene and delivering full resolution and frame rate for relevant areas with detail. Electronic Image stabilisation will also compensate for small movements of the camera in harsh weather conditions by keeping the image sharp and clear.

Intelligent features pre-installed include Axis Video Motion Detection for event triggering based on movement and Axis Advanced Gatekeeper which is a tool that can be used when movement is detected within a region of interest, automatically zooming the camera into the location for greater detail. Analytic capabilities can be extended via the Axis Camera Application Platform (ACAP) allowing for installation from a range of Axis or third-party applications.

The Axis P5654-E offers wide support for leading VMS recording platforms including Axis Camera Station or Milestone XProtect VMS. Using the MicroSD card recording can also be configured at the edge with direct local recording straight to the camera and if more video retention is required the camera can also record out to a NAS (network-attached storage).

Please note: this camera does not come with a power supply, please select from the accessories tab if required.

Key features & benefits

  • HDTV 720P resolution (1280x720px) at up to 50/60 fps (with power line frequency 50/60hz)
  • Day/night capability allows the camera view to be illuminated at night when combined with an external infrared light source
  • Wide-angle 77° view offers wide area coverage, 21x optical zoom, endless 360° pan
  • Lightfinder 2.0 improves the camera’s light sensitivity to capture low-light images with higher saturated colours and sharper images of moving objects
  • With Axis Forensic WDR exposure of both bright and dark areas of a scene is balanced to deliver fully usable images, with lower noise and video artefacts for maximum detail
  • Electronic Image Stabilisation improves focus and keeps images sharp when the camera is subject to movement from vibration or weather
  • Intelligent analytic packages include Axis Video Motion Detection and Axis Advanced Gatekeeper. With support for the Axis Camera Application Platform (ACAP), intelligent features can be expanded with the installation of Axis and third-party applications
  • H.264/H.265 video compression reduces bandwidth use and storage costs, MJPEG support also included for legacy use and integrations
  • Edge recording via MicroSD card for local on-camera recording
  • Enhanced security with signed firmware and secure boot functions
  • Axis Zipstream Technology can reduce bandwidth use further by proprietary algorithms which emphasise significant detail within a scene and reduces bitrates for non-relevant areas
