AXIS M3026-VE Network Camera is a small and affordably priced, outdoor-ready and vandal-resistant fixed dome with 3-megapixel resolution, day/night functionality and enhanced capacity for video streaming and intelligent video applications. The latest in the AXIS M30 Series to be launched, AXIS M3026-VE is ideal for installations at hotels, gas stations, restaurants, offices and schools, in areas that are sometimes dark and in need of a wide-angle, light-sensitive, day/night camera.
Axis Communications, the world leader in network video, today presents AXIS M3026-VE, which provides 3-megapixel and HDTV 1080p video with a 106° horizontal angle of view. AXIS M3026-VE has an automatically removable infrared-cut filter, which enables the camera to capture colour video during daytime conditions and make use of infrared (IR) light in low-light conditions for high-quality black and white video.
“AXIS M3026-VE further strengthens our highly successful fixed mini dome product offerings,” says Ken Lee, Axis Communications’ Sales Manager for Malaysia. AXIS M30 Series now comprises eight products including the recently launched outdoor-ready AXIS M3024-LVE with built-in IR illuminators and the 2-megapixel AXIS M3025-VE.
“AXIS M3026-VE will be attractive for price-sensitive markets that are looking for a small and competitively priced outdoor-ready fixed dome that offers a detailed wide-angle view with
3-megapixel resolution, good light sensitivity, day/night functionality, input/output ports for external devices and substantial capacity for video analytics,” says Ken Lee.
As with other cameras in the series, AXIS M3026-VE enables quick and easy installation. It can be mounted on walls or ceilings, and the camera direction can be easily adjusted. The camera supports Corridor Format for vertically oriented video streams that maximize coverage of areas such as along walls and aisles.
It also comes focused at delivery, which shortens the installation time. It has a 2 m (6.6 ft.) network cable and is powered using Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af). A separate outdoor housing is not required as the camera is outdoor-ready with IP66 and NEMA 4X ratings, which ensure protection against dust, rain and snow. The camera also has an IK10 rating for resistance against impacts.
AXIS M3026-VE is available for order in October through Axis distribution channels at the suggested retail price of $649.
The camera’s other features include:
• Multiple, individually configurable streams in H.264 and Motion JPEG video formats.
• Multi-view streaming, enabling different areas in the camera’s field of view to be cropped from the full view and streamed simultaneously for viewing or recording. Multi-view streaming can help reduce bandwidth and storage use while enabling a large area to be covered with just one camera.
• Wide Dynamic Range with dynamic contrast for handling difficult lighting conditions.
• Enhanced alarm management with one input and one output port for connection to external devices.
• Intelligent video applications such as video motion detection and tampering alarm, as well as enhanced capacity for additional applications through AXIS Camera Application Platform (e.g., people counting).
• The camera’s built-in memory card slot enables several days of recording to be stored locally on a memory card. When it is used together with the free AXIS Camera Companion, users have an easy way to remotely view and manage video from up to 16 cameras per site.
• AXIS M3026-VE is also supported by other video management software including
AXIS Camera Station and third-party applications through Axis’ Application Development Partner program. In addition, the camera supports AXIS Video Hosting System and ONVIF for easy camera system integration.

Axis Communications, the world leader in network video, strengthens its service portfolio by offering optional extended warranty on video cameras, video encoders and video decoders. Warranties can now be extended to a maximum of five years. In combination with Axis’ high-quality and reliable network video products, the new extended warranty gives system integrators and end users greater peace of mind and protection of their investment in video surveillance.
“Ensuring our customers receive the highest level of service and support after they have purchased our products is of the utmost importance.

The new release features 360º overview recording with de-warping, easy NAS installation with one-click configuration and improved selection of viewing apps for iOS and Android.
Axis Communications, the world leader in network video, unveils version 2.1 of the popular and award-winning AXIS Camera Companion. The digital surveillance solution used in installations of 16 cameras or less. “With thousands of cameras installed every week this shows that users really appreciate the simplicity and the superb HDTV image quality offered by AXIS Camera Companion,” says Ken Lee, Axis’ Sales Manager for Malaysia
The new version includes support for 360° overview recording with de-warping when zooming into the image. This allows users to take advantage of the benefits from Axis’ 360° fixed dome HDTV cameras, providing great overview and details with only one camera, see film.
The new release also includes support for easy installation of a Network-Attached Storage (NAS) when increased storage capacity is needed. A set-up wizard makes it possible to easily install any NAS brand to the system, and for further simplicity One-Click NAS configuration is available for selected brands.
“We know that easy operation of the system from anywhere is important to our customers. To complete the system, we have close cooperation with our partners to broaden and improve our selection of mobile viewing apps. With this release the existing apps are updated and new ones introduced.” says Ken Lee.
Unlike analog surveillance installations, AXIS Camera Companion does not require a central recording device – a digital video recorder (DVR), network video recorder (NVR), or even a computer. All images are recorded onto a standard SD memory card in each camera, and the cameras keep recording even if the network fails. The cameras are powered over the network, eliminating the need for separate power cables. This reduces cost, simplifies installation, and makes the system more robust as there is no single point of failure. To further protect customer’s investments, existing analog cameras can be integrated via video encoders.
Further features of AXIS Camera Companion 2.1 include:
• Multi-view streaming to increase surveillance efficiency for multi-megapixel cameras
• Search filter for easy navigation to different sites
• Visual system status notification
• Windows 8 touch screen support
• Third-party apps for viewing live and recorded video from EyeSpyFX and BrightSentry
• One-click configuration for NAS units from QNAP
