Axis 211: specifications
Hide thumbs


AXIS 211M Network Camera is a high-performance megapixel
camera, designed for professional video surveillance. It features
a 1.3 megapixel sensor that delivers crisp and clear images,
perfect for the identification of objects and persons. The high-
quality lens uses DC-iris control for improving the depth of
field and protecting the sensor at intensely illuminated scenes.
AXIS 211M is ideal for video surveillance in locations such as
retail stores, schools, banks or governmental buildings.
The megapixel resolution allows important areas like entrances
or checkouts to be monitored in great detail.
The increased resolution can also be used to provide a
significantly larger overview. The inner rectangle below shows
the area covered by an analog high-resolution camera. With
the same number of pixels per area, the full 1280x1024
resolution provided by AXIS 211M - the outer rectangle below
- covers a three times larger scene.

SuperIor IMAGe quAlITy
With traditional interlaced scanning NTSC/PAL techniques,
every image consists of two frames that are captured after
each other and merged together. This results in degraded
quality when freezing the image. AXIS 211M instead uses
progressive scan, capturing the full image at the same moment,
which provides non-distorted, superior quality images with
drastically reduced motion blur.
Interlaced scan, 20 ms difference
between odd and even lines
SIMulTANeouS MoTIoN JpeG ANd MpeG-4
AXIS 211M offers simultaneous Motion JPEG and MPEG-4 video
streams in full 1.3 megapixel resolution. These streams can
be optimized for image quality and bandwidth efficiency, by
configuring the frame rate, resolution, compression level and
format – offering up to 12 frames per second in full 1280x1024
resolution and 30 frames per second in 800x600 resolution
(partial scan).

power over eTherNeT

Equipped with Power over Ethernet (PoE) support, AXIS 211M
is capable of using the same cable for both power and video,
making installation quick and easy.
The consolidation of power enables the use of a central
Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), adding resilience to the
video surveillance system.
Two-wAy AudIo SupporT
The two-way audio support includes the options of using the
built-in microphone or an external audio capturing device,
and connecting external speakers.
This enables remote users to listen in on an area and
to communicate with visitors or intruders. Axis' audio
enabled video products are capable of sending an alarm at
a configurable audio detection level. Audio can be disabled
when inappropriate.
Progressive scan, all lines are
captured at the same time
