SYSTEM OVERVIEW
A network camera can be described as a camera and computer
combined in one intelligent unit. It captures and transmits live
images directly over an IP network (e.g. LAN/intranet/Internet),
enabling users to remotely view and/or manage the camera from a
web browser on any computer, anywhere, at any time.
An IP-based video surveillance system allows users to monitor
remote locations via a local area network (LAN) or the Internet,
through a dedicated surveillance application. Camera recordings
can be stored on a storage media anywhere on the network.

Types of Network Cameras
Network cameras can be classified in terms of whether they
are designed for indoor use only or for indoor and outdoor
use. Outdoor network cameras often have an auto iris lens to
regulate the amount of light the image sensor is exposed to.
An outdoor camera will also require an external, protective
housing unless the camera design already incorporates a
protective enclosure. Network cameras – whether for indoor
or outdoor use – can be further categorized:
FIXED NETWORK CAMERAS
In a fixed camera, the viewing angle is fixed once it is mounted. A fixed camera represents the traditional surveillance
camera type, and is the best choice for when the user wants the camera to be very visible. Another advantage is
that most fixed cameras have exchangeable lenses. For further protection, fixed cameras can be installed in housings
designed for indoor or outdoor conditions. A fixed camera is usually mounted on a wall.
FIXED DOME NETWORK CAMERAS
A fixed dome camera, also called a mini dome, essentially consists of a fixed camera pre-installed in a small dome
housing. Its main benefit lies in its discreet, non-obtrusive design, as well as in the fact that it is hard to see in
which direction the camera is pointing. One of the limitations of a fixed dome camera is that the choice of lenses
is limited by the space inside the dome. Fixed dome cameras are designed with different types of enclosures such
as vandal-resistant and/or IP66-rated enclosures for outdoor installations. The mounting of fixed dome cameras is
usually on a wall or ceiling.
MECHANICAL PAN/TILT/ZOOM (PTZ) NETWORK CAMERAS
PTZ cameras can pan, tilt and zoom, either manually or automatically. A PTZ camera can, for example, be used to
follow a moving person or vehicle. PTZ cameras are mainly used indoors and in applications where an operator is
employed and where it is not an issue if the camera’s viewing angle is visible. The optical zoom typically ranges from
12x to 26x. A PTZ camera can be mounted on a ceiling or wall.
Non-mechanical PTZ network cameras
A non-mechanical PTZ camera uses a megapixel sensor and a wide-angle lens to achieve a viewing angle of typically
140 to 360 degrees. The operator can choose to pan, tilt and zoom instantly without involving any camera movement.
The key advantage is that there is no mechanical wear and tear, and that the camera offers immediate movement to
a new position, which in a mechanical PTZ camera can take up to one second. To obtain good image quality, pan and
tilt should be limited to 140 degrees and zoom to 3x for a camera with a 3-megapixel sensor. This type of camera is
mounted on a wall or ceiling.
NETWORK DOME cameras
Network dome cameras can cover a wide area by enabling greater flexibility in pan, tilt and zoom operation. In contrast
to PTZ cameras, network dome cameras enable a 360-degree pan, and a tilt of 180 degrees, and are designed for
continuous operation in ‘guard tour’ mode, where the camera automatically moves between preset positions. Dome
cameras are ideal in discreet installations due to their design, and that it is difficult to see the camera’s viewing angle
(dome coverings can be clear or smoked). The optical zoom usually ranges between 18x and 35x. This type of camera is
mounted on a ceiling for indoor use, or on a pole or corner for outdoor installations.

AXIS SUPERIOR IMAGE QUALITY
›Supported compression standards
›Image capture technology
Image quality is one of the most important features of any
camera, if not the most important. This is particularly so in
surveillance and monitoring applications, where lives and
property may be at stake.
Why is Axis image quality superior?
Since the development of network cameras first began, Axis
introduced a stream of image enhancing technologies and
patents. From a technical point of view, Axis' Superior Image
Quality rests on three pillars:
Determining factors
Unlike traditional analog cameras, Axis network cameras are
equipped with processing power not only to capture and
present the images, but also to digitally manage and compress
the video for network transport. There is a natural trade-off
between levels of compression and image quality. But even so,
image quality can vary considerably, depending on choice of
optics and image sensor, available processing power and level
of sophistication of the algorithms. To summarize, one should
specifically look at the aspects of
›Advanced signal processing, image enhancement algorithms and video compression technologies
›Custom-designed image processing and video networking chips
›Careful selection and matching of the latest image sensors and lenses
›Type of image sensor
›Low light capabilities of the camera
›Ability to replace the lens
›Resolution
AXIS' MPEG-4 SUPPORT
wide range settings, it is possible to configure the streams to
be optimized for both bandwidth and quality. The Axis Media
Control (AMC) with MPEG-4 decoder included, makes viewing
of streams and integration into applications easy.
Many Axis video products feature advanced real-time video
encoding that can deliver simultaneous MPEG-4 and Motion
JPEG streams. This gives users the flexibility to maximize image
quality for recording and reduce bandwidth needs for live
viewing.
Furthermore, Axis' multicasting support enables an unlimited
number of viewers without sacrificing network system
performance.
Axis MPEG-4 follows the ISO/IEC 14496-2 standard and
provides Advanced Simple Profile (ASP) at level 5. With a
INTERNET PROTOCOL VERSION 6 (IPv6) and QUALITY OF SERVICE (QoS)
As different networks, such as telephone, data and video
(CCTV) all continue to merge into a single IP network, it
becomes more and more important to control the sharing of
network resources, to fulfill the requirements of each service.
One solution is to have network equipment treat different
types of services (voice, data, video) differently as the traffic
passes through the network. By using Quality Of Service (QoS),
network applications can co-exist on the same network, without
consuming each other’s bandwidth. QoS makes it possible to
prioritize traffic, thus creating a more reliable network.
As more and more devices are added to networks and to the
Internet, IP addresses (the address that individually identifies
each unit) are becoming a scarce resource. To handle this, a
successor to the current IP protocol version 4, has been adopted:
Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). The main improvement
brought by IPv6 is the increase in the number of addresses
available for networked devices. Other important improvements
are in areas such as routing and network auto-configuration.
Products that support IPv6 will be well prepared for the future,
as IPv6 becomes more widely used.

POWER OVER ETHERNET (PoE)
One cable for transmitting video, audio* and power. With a
network video solution, you have the option of using the same
Ethernet cable both for data communications and power. This
feature makes it easier to install products since an electrician
is not required and the network video product is able to
operate even when there is a power failure if the PoE source is
connected to a UPS.
communication performance or decrease the network reach. The
power delivered over the LAN infrastructure is automatically
activated when a compatible terminal is identified, and blocked
to legacy devices that are not compatible. This feature allows
users to freely and safely mix legacy and PoE-compatible
devices on their network.

PoE technology is regulated in a standard called IEEE 802.3af
and is designed in a way that does not degrade the network data

MEGAPIXEL
resolutions generally lead to reduced light sensitivity, because
of the smaller pixels in the image sensor as compared to
conventional cameras.
The higher the resolution, the more details can be seen in an
image. This facilitates the identification of objects and persons
– important considerations in video surveillance. Megapixel
resolution allows the same scene to be viewed in greater detail,
or a larger scene to be viewed at a maintained resolution. The
higher resolution also means that digital pan/tilt/zoom can be
used without causing a drop in resolution.
The full 1600x1200 resolution provided by AXIS 223M Network Camera
gives more than 4 times the number of pixels compared to a highresolution analog camera.
After the video signal from an NTSC or PAL analog camera has
been digitized, the maximum resolution will be 0.4 megapixel.
New network camera technology makes higher resolutions
possible. One common megapixel format is 1280x1024, which
gives 1.3 megapixel resolution, 3 times higher than analog
cameras. Cameras that provide up to 3 megapixel are also
available. It is, however, important to bear in mind that higher

PREPARING YOUR NETWORK VIDEO PROJECT
MAIN CONSIDERATIONS
1. Define the scene and type of network video products required
Scene: What kind of scene do you
want to monitor? How important is it?
This will help you determine the features you would like to have in a network camera, such as video quality,
light sensitivity and type of lens.
Lighting conditions: level of indoor
and/or outdoor light sensitivity
required
Axis offers network cameras for indoor use, as well as models for both indoor/outdoor conditions. Indoor/outdoor cameras have varifocal lens that automatically adjust the lens‘ iris. Day/night cameras, which provide
color images during daytime and black & white images during night time are also available.
Check details on the network camera‘s light sensitivity both in indoor and/or outdoor environments. Lighting
conditions are measured in “lux“.
Distance from position of camera to
object being monitored
This determines the type of camera and type of lens (normal, telephoto, wide-angle) to use, as well as the
placement of the camera(s). Choose Axis network cameras with fixed focal or varifocal lenses, with or without
replaceable lenses, according to the level of flexibility needed.
Angle of view needed: wide, narrow,
general or detailed coverage (Determine
Network cameras come with fixed angle and focus, as well as variable ones that allow remote pan/tilt/zoom
capability, which enables a wider area of coverage.
how much of the scene you need to see)
High or low traffic
The higher the traffic, the more cameras may be needed.
3. Determine your network needs (LAN/WAN, wireless)
2. Determine your application needs: features, recording and storage needs
Assess network use of current LAN: what are you or the company using
it for?
Application: Simple remote viewing, intelligent surveillance system with
advanced event management, input/output triggers, audio?
Assess network use of current WAN links
Viewing and recording needs: Determine when and how often you need
to view and record: day, night and/or weekends? Schedule the needs for
every scene.
Determine the pattern of congestion levels over a given period
Do you need to add new equipment to the network, e.g. switches, or use
existing infrastructure and equipment?
Calculate storage requirements
Do you need to subscribe to additional ISPs for redundancy?
Calculate bandwidth requirements
Is distributed storage needed?
