AXIS P54 Series comprises outdoor-ready, wall-mounted HDTV pan/tilt/zoom cameras that are
aesthetically designed to blend in with a building. The attractively priced cameras are ideal for
use in city and perimeter surveillance, parking houses and school yards.
AXIS P54 cameras mount directly on a wall without the
traditional mounting arm. The design, which incorporates a wall bracket, allows the cameras to be at one with
the building. The built-in bracket also provides cost-savings by eliminating the need for a separate mounting accessory, and makes installation easier and quicker. The
cameras’ integrated sunshield can be easily repainted to
match the color of the building.
AXIS P54’s innovations extend inside as well. The cameras have a direct drive pan/tilt system that enables unsurpassed endurance. With no belts or gears, they are
reliable, low maintenance PTZ cameras.
AXIS P5414-E provides HDTV 720p performance, while
AXIS P5415-E offers HDTV 1080p. Both support 18x
optical zoom with autofocus. In combination with
HDTV resolution, the cameras provide highly detailed
zoomed-in views. When mounted on the corner of a
building, the cameras enable a 270° pan for wide area
coverage. Support for Advanced Gatekeeper enables
the cameras to automatically pan, tilt and zoom in to a
preset position when motion is detected in a predefined
The cameras have a hidden junction box that supports
two-way audio, a memory card slot, four configurable
input/output ports for external devices, and the option
of using either 24 V DC or Power over Ethernet Plus
(IEEE 802.3at).
Innovation inside and out
AXIS P54 Series introduces an intelligent, direct drive pan/tilt system and a new design for wall-mount PTZ cameras that
enables easy and discreet installation
Easy to install; blends in with environment
Hidden and waterproof junction box
An AXIS P54 camera comes with a built-in wall bracket (1) for easy installation. Oblong screw holes (2) make leveling easier. Extra space (3)
is provided for service loops and there are holes (4) for cables. With a
lift-off hinge (5), the camera, together with the integrated sunshield, is
easily hung onto the wall bracket, freeing up hands to make cable connections. The hinge allows the camera unit to swing in and be fastened
with three screws.
The waterproof IP66-rated junction box contains an RJ45 connector (6)
for network connection and power using Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+).
Users can also choose to power (7) the camera using a 24 V DC cable
(cable not included). There are also four configurable input/output ports
(8) for connection to external devices to enhance alarm management.
Two-way audio, with mic in/line in and line output (9), is supported.
A memory card slot (10) enables recordings to be stored locally on an
Shaped like a lamp, the camera’s
sloping form not only makes it more
discreet, but also hinders attempts
by vandals to pull it down with a
rope. The sunshield (at left) covers
the entire camera and can be easily
removed into two parts and repainted
to match the wall color. Air vents in
the sunshield are designed to prevent the entry of wasps and other big
Unsurpassed mechanical endurance
An AXIS P54 camera is directly
attached to the drive shaft of two motors (pointed out in image at left)—one
for panning and another for tilting the
camera. With no parts such as belts
or gears, AXIS P54’s durable pan/tilt
system is fast and provides customers
with a reliable, low-maintenance PTZ
HDTV quality and 18x optical zoom

AXIS P54 cameras are compliant with SMPTE’s HDTV standards in terms
of resolution, frame rate, color fidelity and a 16:9 format. The cameras
use a very light-sensitive image sensor that enables them to deliver better
image quality in low-light conditions than many other HDTV PTZ cameras.
In low light or night-time conditions, the cameras’ automatic day/night
functionality enables them to make use of infrared light from available
light sources to produce high-quality black and white video.
