Axis 212 PTZ - AVHS Enabled

Full overview and instant zoom

Conventional PTZ cameras allow the user to pan, tilt and zoom, but not to see the whole video scene - just one portion at a time. The AXIS 212 PTZ gives the user the whole picture, then allows instant pan/tilt/zoom to get the details.

The 3x zoom provides instant, one-click optical zoom functionality.Consequently, from the overview image, a security officer can zoom in 3 times on any suspicious behavior by just clicking on the part of the image where it’s happening. No other PTZ camera can zoom in instantly on off-centered action.

The advantages of no moving parts are considerable:
  • No noise - thus making the camera even more discreet.
  • No way to tell where the camera is looking. In fact, the camera seems to follow anyone on the premises.
  • No delay for mechanical movement and thus no time lag in the images.

Resolution - sharp and maintained

By having a full overview of 140° (pan), the AXIS 212 PTZ wastes no pixels. This means that the full image sensor can be used for image quality purposes - and the difference is astonishing.

The AXIS 212 PTZ offers progressive scan and advanced signal processing based on a 3 megapixel CMOS sensor.

Oversampling is a technology that uses the advantages of a high-resolution sensor (2048x1536 pixels) in its full format. This means that, whether in full overview mode or when zooming in, full 1:1 VGA resolution of 640x480 pixels is maintained - resulting in a brighter image, more detail and higher contrast.
