AXIS 210 Network Camera

Superior video quality for professional indoor applications
AXIS 210 Network Camera Large_0904  

The AXIS 210 Network Camera offers a cost-effective, IP-based solution for professional indoor security surveillance and remote monitoring. It delivers superior image quality using progressive scan and provides built-in motion detection and support for advanced event management.

The AXIS 210 can deliver simultaneous Motion JPEG and MPEG-4 video streams, allowing for optimization in image quality and bandwidth. The MPEG-4 compression mode is ideal for applications where available bandwidth is restricted and higher frame rates are required.

The AXIS 210 connects directly to an IP network. With a built-in Web server, the AXIS 210 enables remote monitoring over a local area network or the Internet using a standard Web browser. Backed by the industry's largest base of application software for video and alarm management, the AXIS 210 is an ideal choice for securing offices, shops and other facilities.
