Mass. – April 1, 2014 – Axis Communications, the global leader in network
video, today announces its first 4K resolution camera with the outdoor-ready
AXIS P1428-E Network Camera. The 4K standard, an established motion picture
production and consumer television standard also known as Ultra HD, is defined
and approved by the
International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and offers a video resolution of
3840 x 2160 pixels at 30 frames per second.
Axis will showcase 4K Ultra HD performance at
booth #14059 during this week’s ISC West security tradeshow beginning on
Wednesday at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.
The AXIS P1428-E Network Camera is the flagship model in the brand new AXIS P14
Series also announced today, which are compact bullet-style fixed cameras
designed for outdoor and demanding indoor environments. AXIS P1428-E with 4K
resolution offers a number of valuable features for security integrators and
end-customers, including remote zoom and focus, a built-in slot for a micro SD/SDHC/SDXC
memory card and I/O connectors for interfacing with external devices – all of
which make the camera ideal for overlooking large areas like parking lots, city
squares and stadiums while being able to capture fine details.

Axis was among the very first companies to introduce HDTV network cameras in the
surveillance market with the launch of
AXIS Q1755 Network Camera in January 2009. The introduction of 4K technology
into Axis’ product portfolio is a natural step in the journey to respond to
customer demand for consumer-grade resolution using standards-based technology.
“It was a game-changer when we launched the first true HDTV standard camera in
2009. Back then, AXIS Q1755 delivered 720p / 1080i performance for $1,499. With
4K Ultra HD, we can deliver four times 1080p resolution at a full 30 frames per
second for $500 less. It’s Moore’s Law and innovative product design at work,”
said Fredrik Nilsson, general manager, Axis Communications, Inc. “We anticipate
that the new AXIS P14 Series will be a very popular choice for customers across
many industry segments, so we’re proud to offer the 4K standard in this
practical and cost-effective series at the onset.”
AXIS P14 Series consists of seven network cameras ranging from HDTV 1080p to 4K
Ultra HD. The innovative all-in-one mechanical design of AXIS P14 Series
includes the location of electrical components like the Ethernet connection,
memory card slot and I/O connectors in the foot of the camera. This offers
efficient and reliable video surveillance in any environment while allowing
customers to select the camera that best meets their specific requirements and
4K technology is an established industry standard both in motion picture
production and consumer displays. Initially, Axis anticipates that the majority
of AXIS P1428-E customers will utilize standard HDTV monitors. This will allow
them to enhance any portion of the screen to pull crisp forensic video from
large areas without losing details.
AXIS P1428-E Network Camera with 4K resolution is planned to be available in Q3
2014 through Axis’ distribution channels at a suggested retail price of $999.
