Overview of the Axis Q3708-PVE

This multi-sensor dome houses three lens modules that together, deliver 180° overviews in 15MP resolution. The IP66 and IK10-rated unit also supports true day/night recording, making it ideal for round-the-clock surveillance of exposed locations. Additional features include Axis’ award-winning Zipstream technology and easy installation using Power-over-Ethernet plus (PoE+).

Designed to deliver a full panoramic overview of indoor or outdoor areas, the dome's three factory-focused lenses can deliver 3 x Quad HD video footage at full frame rate or 3 x 5MP resolution at up to 16 frames per second (fps). Each lens module is also fitted to a track on the structure of the dome and can be manually adjusted to achieve optimum panoramic viewing.

Support for wide dynamic range (WDR) – Forensic Capture helps to improve the quality of images captured in high contrast scenes. By lowering noise levels and increasing the image signal, the technology ensures details are clearly visible in both bright and dark areas.

A range of configurable video motion detection and tampering alarms are supported to help provide reliable and accurate security monitoring. When triggered, these alarms can send alerts directly to the user via notifications such as email.

Axis’ Zipstream technology is supported and helps to lower bandwidth and storage levels by an average of up to 50%. By optimising the video stream in real-time, important details can be retained while unnecessary data is removed. In addition, Power-over-Ethernet Plus supplies the camera with both power and network connectivity over a single cable - enabling quick and cost-effective installation.

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