AXIS M30-VE Network Cameras, which are part of the AXIS M30 Series, are affordably priced,
vandal-resistant fixed mini domes for excellent video during day and night-time conditions in
indoor or outdoor environments. The series offers HDTV performance and 360°/180° panoramic
views and is ideal for installation inside or outside a hotel, boutique, restaurant, office or school.
AXIS M3024-LVE provides 1-megapixel and
HDTV 720p video and offers built-in IR illumination for surveillance even in complete darkness.
AXIS M3025-VE supports 2-megapixel resolution in full
HDTV 1080p, whereas AXIS M3026-VE additionally provides 3-megapixel resolution and can stream different
view areas within its field of view. AXIS M3027-PVE is
a 5-megapixel fixed dome that provides a 360° view
when mounted on a ceiling or soffit, and a 180° view
when wall mounted.
AXIS M30-VE cameras are outdoor ready and impact
resistant, with IP66, NEMA 4X and IK10 ratings. The
cameras come focused at delivery and can be mounted
on walls, ceilings or pendants. AXIS M3024-LVE,
AXIS M3025-VE and AXIS M3026-VE have a 3-axis
camera angle adjustment for flexible installation. They
also support Axis Corridor Format for vertically oriented
video streams that maximize coverage of areas along
walls or aisles.
AXIS M30-VE cameras have input/output ports for
connection to external devices. The cameras support
AXIS Camera Application Platform for intelligent video
applications, AXIS M3026-VE and AXIS M3027-PVE have
substantial capacity for video analytics.
The fixed domes offer a convenient video management
solution with their built-in memory card slot for edge
storage and support for software such as the complimentary AXIS Camera Companion.
The cameras come with a 2 m (6.6 ft) network cable and
are powered using Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af).

Day/night functionality and IR illumination
AXIS M30-VE cameras – with different viewing angle, resolution, frame
rate and intelligent video capacity - have been optimized to provide best
in class performance for the different application needs of price-sensitive
The day/night functionality in AXIS M30-VE cameras is useful for surveillance in indoor or outdoor environments with changing lighting conditions. The day/night functionality involves an automatically removable infrared-cut filter in the cameras. The filter is on during daytime
or bright conditions, enabling the cameras to produce colors as the human eye sees them. In nighttime or low-light conditions, the filter is removed to enable the cameras to take advantage of invisible near-infrared
light. This functionality allows the cameras to extend their usefulness in
low-light conditions and enables IR (infrared) illuminators to be used to
further improve video quality in dark environments. AXIS M3024-LVE has
built-in IR illuminators and is ideal for surveillance in complete darkness.
AXIS M3024-LVE uses high-efficiency, long-life 850 nm IR LEDs.
360°/180° panoramic views
AXIS M3027-PVE is a 360°/180° fixed dome that can be used to help
detect activities, track the flow of people and improve area management.
AXIS M3027-PVE supports several viewing modes: 360° overview and
dewarped views such as panorama, double panorama and quad views.
The camera also provides view area modes where users can digitally pan,
tilt and zoom in on areas of interest.
The above images from AXIS M3024-LVE – depicting the same scenario of a man
with a small flashlight in a dark room – show the difference that IR illumination
makes for surveillance in the dark. IR light is invisible to the human eye but visible
to the camera.
