Axis Pixel Counting Feature

The new P33 series of fixed dome network cameras from Axis include a new pixel counting feature. This feature allows an installers to easily verify any regulatory or customer specific requirement for resolution such as number plates or entrance ways to ensure sufficient detail for identification.

We thought we would take a look at how this works in closer detail.

Axis pixel counting feature

The pixel counting feature is included in the focus and zoom setup page of the camera. Below the preview image is a tick box to show or hide the pixel counting area. With the box shown on the image you can move and resize it to see the included resolution shown in the width and height boxes. The pixel results take into account the default resolution and are not the pixels show in the preview window.

As well as finding the resolution of a set area, if you know the resolution you require you can enter this into the ‘width’ and ‘height’ boxes and click ‘apply’ and the window will change according to the value entered. This then allows you to adjust the zoom which will effectively shrink or enlarge the image to change what is covered by the preset resolution.

The pixel counting feature is simple, but it could prove very helpful when installing an IP camera which needs to meet specific design or legal requirements for resolution which can be easily checked and verified.
