AXIS F44 Main Unit supports up to four AXIS F Sensor Units for surveillance of four closely situated areas. The main unit can be installed in a sheltered area up to 12 m (39 ft.) away from the sensor units. The sensor units can be placed in tight places, indoors or outdoors. The solution is ideal for stores, ATMs (automated teller machines), emergency vehicles, buses and trams.
Cost-effective coverage of four areas
AXIS F44 provides a simple and cost-effective solution for multi-view surveillance, enabling simultaneous streaming of views from four different areas through one Ethernet port. The cost of an installation with AXIS F44 and four sensor units, together with other system components, may be lower than the cost of a system that involves four comparable standard network cameras. Costs for a network switch, for instance, may be lower as the number of ports required can be reduced. License fees for the video management software (VMS) can also be lowered if the VMS sees AXIS F44 as requiring one license instead of four. The overall installation and placement of the units may also be easier and more flexible than with conventional camera solutions. The feature-rich AXIS F44 also presents a high-performance standalone solution as it supports, among other things, two full-sized SD cards for local storage of recordings.
Two capture modes
AXIS F44 supports two different capture modes. The 1080p capture mode enables simultaneous streaming of four separate 1080p videos at 12.5/15 frames per second (50/60 Hz) and provides the full viewing angle from AXIS F Sensor Units’ 1080p image sensor.
The 720p capture mode enables simultaneous streaming of four HDTV 720p streams at full frame rate in cropped view (depending on the sensor unit, the horizontal viewing angles are about 35% to 42% less than with the 1080p resolution).
AXIS F44 also supports one stream in quad view, which is a stream made up of four separate views from the connected sensor units. AXIS F44, together with AXIS F Sensor Units, provides color video in light as low as 0.3 lux.
Rugged, easy-to-install design
AXIS F44 can withstand tough conditions such as vibrations, shocks and temperature fluctuations, which make it ideal for use in emergency vehicles such as police cars, fire trucks and ambulances, as well as buses, trams and trucks (such as those used to transport money and other valuable goods). The main unit has also been designed for easy installation in cabinets and small enclosures as all the connectors are placed on one side of the unit so that cables go in one direction and do not take up unnecessary space. The bottom of the unit can also hook directly onto a DIN rail.
Besides the two built-in SD card slots, AXIS F44 offers two-way audio and four configurable input/output ports for external devices to enable enhanced alarm management. An RS232 port allows for integration of external data to the video. Intelligent video capabilities include video motion detection, active tampering alarm and downloadable applications through the AXIS Camera Application Platform. The main unit can be powered using Power over Ethernet or DC power.
