AXIS P3301/-V and P3304/-V Network Cameras

Discreet video surveillance with outstanding H.264 performance

AXIS P3301/-V and AXIS P3304/-V Network Cameras are designed for indoor environments where discreet and compact solutions are required. Offering superior video quality in multiple, efficiently compressed H.264 streams, they constitute the perfect solution for video surveillance systems with tough quality and efficiency requirements, e.g. in retail stores, schools, prisons, banks and airports.
  • Superior image quality
  • Multiple H.264 streams
  • Unobtrusive and compact design
  • Intelligent video capabilities
  • Power over Ethernet
  • ONVIF support
AXIS P3301/-V and AXIS P3304/-V offer superior image quality including progressive scan and wide dynamic range, providing crisp and clear images of both illuminated and low-light areas. AXIS P3301/-V are VGA cameras and AXIS P3304/-V provide HDTV 720p or 1 megapixel resolution at full frame rate.

Product Accessories

AXIS P3304 Dome Camera Optional AccessoriesMultiple H.264 streams, as well as Motion JPEG streams, can be provided either in full frame rate or individually optimized for different quality needs and bandwidth constraints. The vandal-resistant AXIS P3301-V and AXIS P3304-V, and AXIS P3301 and AXIS P3304 with their tamper- resistant casing, are fixed domes specifically adapted for unobtrusive video surveillance in exposed indoor environments. AXIS P3304 Dome Camera DimensionsAll network cameras include intelligent capabilities such as video motion detection, audio detection and detection of camera tampering attempts like blocking or spray-painting. Power over Ethernet supplies power to the cameras via the network, eliminating the need for power cables and reducing installation costs. The pixel counter helps the installer verify that the pixel resolution fulfills specific requirements for identification purposes.
