Essentially a four-camera-in-one unit, AXIS P37 series offer a cost-effective solution for the surveillance of large indoor and outdoor areas such as in retail stores, shopping malls, warehouses, lobbies of schools, hotels and offices, and parking lots. It is also ideal for use at the intersection of hallways, aisles and roads, and at the corner of buildings.
With four camera heads in one body, AXIS P37 series are cost-effective, not only when compared with the price of four standard varifocal cameras of comparable performance. Installation is made easier with only one network cable instead of four. One cable also reduces the number of ports required on a switch. And the camera’s one IP address means it requires only one software license fee (instead of four) with most video management systems. In addition, the camera is powered through Power over Ethernet, which eliminates the need to access a nearby power outlet. AXIS P3707-PE also has low power consumption, using max. 5.5 W.
The camera supports Axis’ Zipstream technology, which is beneficial when streaming 8-megapixel videos. Zipstream 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.
