AXIS 221 Day & Night Network Camera

AXIS 221 Day & Night 1005

High performance, professional day and night network camera

The AXIS 221 Day & Night Network Camera is a high performance camera for round-the-clock surveillance over IP networks.

With the ability to provide high quality images under all lighting conditions, the AXIS 221 is an ideal solution for indoor and outdoor applications, including the surveillance of buildings, roads, parking areas, garages, railway stations and airports. The camera is supported by the industry's largest base of video management software for video and alarm management.

The AXIS 221 features an automatic, removable infrared-cut filter, which enables the camera to provide color video when there is sufficient light, and black and white video in dark conditions. It uses a high performance Pentax lens and a progressive-scan CCD image sensor that enables moving objects to be presented without distortion. In addition to support for 45 frames per second at all resolutions, the AXIS 221 offers simultaneous Motion JPEG and advanced MPEG-4 video streams to optimize image quality and bandwidth efficiency.

The AXIS 221 also supports a number of advanced features that give the camera increased flexibility and capabilities, including Power over Ethernet, video motion detection, pre- and post-alarm buffer, and inputs/outputs for connecting external devices such as door sensors and relays to activate light or close doors. Power over Ethernet makes the installation easier, cheaper and more secure since Power over Ethernet can take advantage of UPS (uninterrupted power supply), which provides back-up power in case of a power failure.


AXIS 221 Day & Night Back 1005

  • Superior image quality using progressive scan CCD sensor, which enables moving images to be presented without distortion      
  • Day and night functionality allows the camera to automatically switch between a color image during daylight conditions and light sensitive black & white mode during low light conditions      
  • High quality Pentax, varifocal DC-iris lens      
  • Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af)      
  • Up to 45 frames per second in all resolutions ranging up to 640x480      
  • Supports simultaneous Motion JPEG and MPEG-4 video streams to optimize image quality and bandwidth efficiency      
  • Built-in multi-window video motion detection, which reduces network load and storage needs by uploading video only when change is detected

  • Industrial - Monitor manufacturing lines, industrial and pharmaceutical processes, automation, warehouse and stock control systems.

Role of IR-cut filter:

Infrared light exists in nature at higher wavelengths that cannot be perceived by the human eye.

IR light is filtered away in the camera by an IR-cut filter in order to render an image that humans are used to. By removing the IR-cut filter when light conditions are too dark to render color images, the AXIS 221 can thus produce high quality black & white video using infrared light.
