AXIS M30 Series include AXIS M3004 (HDTV 720p and 1 MP
resolution) and AXIS M3005 (HDTV 1080p and 2 MP). The
palm-sized, dust-resistant AXIS M30 cameras are designed for
quick and flexible installation, and optional colored
casings are available so that the cameras can best blend
into the aesthetics of the store.

National Retail Federation’s annual Loss Prevention
Conference and EXPO (NRF-LP) in Axis booth #1109.
Specifically designed with retailers in mind, AXIS M3004 and
AXIS M3005 feature a unique 3-axis lens that allows
installers to mount the cameras on walls or ceilings and
easily adjust the camera direction and image angle. This
lens also enables support for
Axis’ Corridor Format, which delivers a vertically
oriented video stream (i.e. 9:16) to maximize surveillance
coverage of store aisles and high bay racking environments.
Furthermore, the cameras' built-in MicroSDHC card slot
enables several days of HDTV-quality video to be stored
locally and can be used together with the free
AXIS Camera Companion software to deliver an easy and
cost-effective way to remotely view and manage video for up
to 16 cameras per site. AXIS M30 cameras also support
AXIS Video Hosting System (AVHS) with One-Click Camera
connection for hosted video deployments and are compatible
with industry leading
video management software for system design flexibility.
"The new AXIS M30 Network Cameras are small, easy to install
on either walls or ceilings and competitively priced with
superb HDTV performance," says Johan Åkesson, director of
business development, Retail. "Together with their support
for the intuitive AXIS Camera Companion solution and a wide
range of other video management software, the cameras
provide price-sensitive market segments with an attractively
priced HDTV surveillance solution."

horizontal viewing angles of 80° and 118°, respectively, and
the cameras come pre-focused to shorten installation time.

streams simultaneously, and have support for

intelligent video applications that run inside the camera
itself, such as people counting, business and operational
intelligence, heat mapping, dwell time analysis and traffic
