Axis 216MFD-V Network Camera

Axis 216MFD-V Network Camera
AXIS 216MFD/216MFD-V Network Cameras
Discreet video surveillance with exceptional image detail
AXIS 216MFD Network Cameras
offer high-performance, fixed
dome solutions for exposed
indoor locations. Compact,
discreet and with megapixel
resolution, they are ideal for
indoor video surveillance of
areas such as retail stores,
schools, airports, banks and
government buildings.
Megapixel resolution
Thanks to the 1.3 megapixel progressive scan sensor and
advanced image processing, AXIS 216MFD Network Cameras
deliver crisp and clear images, perfect for the identification
of objects and persons.
Simultaneous Motion JPEG and
Simultaneous Motion JPEG and MPEG-4 video streams in full
megapixel resolution allow for optimization of image quality
and bandwidth efficiency.
Discreet and compact design
The vandal-resistant AXIS 216MFD-V, and AXIS 216MFD
with its tamper-resistant casing, are fixed domes specifically
adapted for discreet video surveillance in exposed indoor
Power over Ethernet
Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af) supplies power to the
cameras via the network, which eliminates the need for
power cables and reduces installation costs.
Two-way audio support
Two-way audio support allows remote users to listen in on an
area and communicate with visitors or intruders.
Discreet video surveillance
with exceptional image detail
Superior image quality
AXIS 216MFD Network Cameras are discreet fixed dome came­
ras specifically adapted for indoor environments, designed
for professional video surveillance. The AXIS 216MFD
version offers a tamper-resistant plastic cover, whereas
AXIS 216MFD-V features a rugged, vandal-resistant casing
with a metal base specifically adapted for indoor environments
subject to vandalism.
They both feature a 1.3 megapixel sensor that delivers crisp
and clear images, perfect for the identification of objects
and persons. The high-quality lens uses DC-iris control for
improving the depth of field and protecting the sensor at
intensely illuminated scenes. AXIS 216MFD Network Cameras
are ideal for video surveillance in locations such as retail stores,
schools, airports, banks or government buildings.
With traditional interlaced scanning NTSC/PAL techniques,
every image consists of two frames that are captured after
each other and merged together. This results in degraded
quality when freezing the image. AXIS 216MFD Network
Cameras instead use progressive scan, capturing the full image
at the same moment, which provides non-distorted, superior
quality images with drastically reduced motion blur.
The megapixel resolution allows important areas like entrances
or checkouts to be monitored in great detail.

Simultaneous motion JPEG and MPEG-4
AXIS 216MFD Network Cameras offer simultaneous Motion
JPEG and MPEG-4 video streams in full 1.3 megapixel reso­
lution. The video streams can be optimized for image quality
and bandwidth efficiency by configuring the frame rate,
resolution, compression level and format – offering up to 12
frames per second in full 1280x1024 resolution and 30 frames
per second in 800x600 resolution (partial scan).
The increased resolution can also be used to provide a
significantly larger overview. The inner rectangle below shows
the area covered by an analog CCTV camera. With the same
number of pixels per area, the full 1280x1024 resolution
provided by AXIS 216MFD Network Cameras - the outer
rectangle below - covers a three times larger scene.
AXIS 216MFD Network Cameras are quick and
easy to install on wall, hard or drop ceiling. They
allow versatile adjustment by panning, tilting and rotating
the varifocal lens to any camera angle. Smoked transparent
covers and drop ceiling mount kit are options for making the
AXIS 216MFD Network Cameras more discreet.
Power over Ethernet allows power to be delivered to the
AXIS 216MFD Network Cameras via the network,
reducing cabling requirements and
installation costs. This also means
that continuous power can be
guaranteed by the use of a
UPS (Uninterruptible Power

TWO-WAY audio support
Powerful event management
The audio support includes the option of using the built-in
microphone or connecting external speakers and microphones.
This enables remote users to listen in on an area and
communicate instructions, orders or requests to visitors or
intruders. Audio can be disabled when inappropriate.
With AXIS 216MFD Network Cameras, video can be accessed at
any time, from any computer anywhere. AXIS 216MFD Network
Cameras also allow for powerful event management with multiwindow motion detection, audio detection and I/O (input/
output) for connecting devices such as external relays and
sensors to activate lights or open/close doors.
Pre- and post-image alarm buffering secures images just before
and after an alarm. AXIS 216MFD Network Cameras are
supported by AXIS Camera Station video management software,
which offers remote video monitoring, recording and playback.
Advanced security and
network management
AXIS 216MFD Network Cameras offer a compre­hensive set
of network security features, such as multi-level password
protection, IP address filtering, HTTPS encryption and
IEEE 802.1X network access control.
IPv6 is supported in addition to IPv4, as insurance against
the growing shortage of IP addresses, eliminating the need
for network address translation and simplifying configuration
in an IPv6-enabled network. Network utilization is optimized
with the support for Quality of Service (QoS), which enables
reservation of network capacity and prioritization of missioncritical surveillance in a QoS-aware network.
AXIS 216MFD Network Cameras include the industry-standard
Axis Application Programming Interface, AXIS VAPIX™ API,
which facilitates the development of customized software
solutions. The API ensures compatibility with the market’s
widest range of third-party video management software,
available from Axis Application Development Partners.
