New Axis T83 range of compact microphones launched

axis_t83Axis has launched the T83 series of compact microphones providing high-performance audio in most scenarios. The new microphones are compatible with Axis network cameras with audio input support, offering high quality audio data that can add valuable information to CCTV monitoring operations.

The T83 are omni-directional condenser microphones, therefore are equally sensitive to sound from any direction, making them easy to deploy in scenarios where the direction of sound sources may be difficult to predict. Their miniature design enables flexible, discreet installation in most places, suitable for covert audio detection or to complement video surveillance footage. Designed with regard to a neutral frequency response, the Axis T83 microphones can capture any sound without distorting natural tone. Taking power from the Axis IP camera it is connected to, the T83 microphones are very easy to deploy.

This diagram shows the frequency range of the Axis T83 range of accessory microphones:

Audio detection is a useful tool for security staff, allowing operators to effectively assess the urgency of emergency situations, such as for example loud unusual noise, shouting, abusive language and slamming doors. A microphone can also extend the use of a network camera as an intercom system for communication at exits and entrances. Other surveillance applications for the Axis T83 microphones include cash points (ATMs), custody suites, detention centres, customs offices, banks or post offices.
