AXIS P1244 is a small, cost-effective modular camera with HDTV 720p performance.
The indoor camera is ideal for use in highly discreet installations such as in retail stores, banks and museums, and for installation in tight places such as in ATMs (automated teller machines), ticket, vending and health monitoring machines.
AXIS P1244 is composed of the following: an AXIS F1004 Sensor Unit, comprising a lens and image sensor, and AXIS P12 Mk II Main Unit, which is the body of the camera.
The sensor unit comes with a detachable 8-m (26 ft) cable for connection to the main unit.
The cable enables the main unit to be placed away from the viewing point where there is space.
Small sensor unit
The thumb-sized sensor unit offers a 102° horizontal field of view and provides color video in light as low as 0.4 lux.
The sensor unit can be integrated in machines, or mounted in doorways, walls and ceilings with the included flush mount kit.
Optional surface and recessed mounts enable the sensor unit to be tilted in the desired viewing direction.
Compact main unit
The main unit, with dimensions of 1.7 x 4.6 x 11 cm (5/8 x 1 13/16 x 4 5/16 in.) makes it easy to install in tight places.
It provides HDTV 720p videos and is powered through Power over Ethernet (PoE).
It has a built-in microSD card slot for local storage of recordings.
Savings with Axis’ Zipstream technology
AXIS P1244 supports Axis’ Zipstream technology, which is a more efficient implementation of the H.264 video encoder.
It can lower bandwidth and storage use by an average of 50% or more for many surveillance scenarios.
The encoding technology ensures that important details are maintained while unnecessary data is heavily compressed.
AXIS P1244 supports AXIS Video Motion Detection 3, Active Tampering Alarm and AXIS Camera Application Platform for installation of additional video analytics.
