BY MOLLIE DOBERSEK The world leader in network video, Axis Communications, has released two strong additions to the Axis M11 Network Camera Series: Axis M1143-L and Axis M1144-L Network Cameras with integrated IR-LED illumination and mechanical IR-cut filters for day\/night video surveillance. The new indoor fixed IP cameras are designed for easy and discreet day to night surveillance, with highly efficient H.264 video compression and options for full frame rate HDTV quality. A slim, compact and intuitive design enables quick installation and trouble-free surveillance for applications where surveillance is required around-the-clock. Each camera features two easily adjustable levers concealed by a lid at the top of the camera to adjust focus and field of view, and two high-efficiency integrated IR-LEDs are purpose-built to have a longer life than typical market LEDs and mirror the lifespan of the IP camera. The high-efficiency IR-LED lights in the Axis M11-L cameras are sunk behind the lens to dissipate heat and provide up to 50 feet of IR light for a minimum of seven years, even if used 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Axis M1143-L (SVGA) and Axis M1144-L (HDTV 720p) Network Cameras offer multiple H.264 and Motion JPEG streams that can be individually optimized for bandwidth and storage efficiency. Other benefits include pixel counter, corridor format, Power over Ethernet, and an I\/O port to connect ancillary devices such as a PIR sensor or alarm panel. The M11-L series cameras come equipped with a built-in Micro SF\/SDHC memory card slot, which complements the Axis Camera Companion solution for small camera count systems. In addition, the cameras include support for Axis Video Hosting System with one-click camera connection and ONVIF specification for interoperability of network video products.
