AXIS M31-R
Network Camera Series and AXIS Q8108-R Network Video Recorder are specially
designed for easy and discreet installation, as well as reliable operation in
vehicles. They are protected from dust and water and can withstand shock,
vibrations and temperature fluctuations.

“The rugged AXIS
M31-R cameras and AXIS Q8108-R recorder provide the transportation industry
with the highest standard for mobile surveillance,” says Erik Frännlid,
Director of Product Management, Axis Communications. “The products hold a
number of transportation-specific certifications. They take into account the
environment and surveillance requirements in vehicles and offer a complete
solution for capturing, recording, managing and accessing high-quality HDTV
video.”

The palm-sized
AXIS M31-R cameras provide full frame rate video streams in H.264 and Motion
JPEG in resolutions up to 1 megapixel, including HDTV 720p. AXIS M3113-R (SVGA)
and AXIS M3114-R (1 MP) come with either a rugged RJ-45 or rugged M12 network
connector. The cameras respond rapidly to changing light levels and employ
progressive scan for clearer images of moving objects.

The cameras are
also designed for quick and reliable installation. For instance, the desired
field of view and a levelled image can be easily achieved by using the supplied
lens tool to direct and rotate the ball that holds the lens and image sensor.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) support further simplifies installation since only
one cable is needed for carrying power and video.

AXIS Q8108-R
supports HDTV recording and has an integrated PoE switch that offers an easy
and cost-effective solution for powering as many as eight network cameras
recording at full frame rate. The network video recorder provides battery
back-up to handle short periods of power drop and safe shutdown of the system.

AXIS Q8108-R can
be delivered as an out-of-the-box-ready solution with integrated hard disk
drives and AXIS Camera Station video management software. It can also be
customised to meet project specific needs, with options such as third-party
software and support for wireless technologies such as WLAN, GSM, UMTS and GPS.
Such options allow operation centres, for instance, to remotely access live and
recorded video from a vehicle and receive information about its location.
