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, while the sensor units can be placed in tight places indoors or outdoors up to 8, 12 or 15 m (26, 39 or 49 ft.) away, depending on the sensor unit and if a cable accessory is supported. The rugged and feature-rich AXIS F44 Main Unit is suitable for a variety of demanding applications, from stores and ATMs, to 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
Each channel of AXIS F44 supports a 1080p or 720p capture mode and multiple, individually configurable streams. AXIS F44 can operate any combination of the two modes across the channels simultaneously.
A capture mode sets the maximum resolution and frame rate. In the 1080p mode, the maximum resolution is 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixels) and the maximum frame rate is 12.5/15 frames per second (50/60 Hz). It provides the full viewing angle from a 1080p sensor unit.
In the 720p capture mode, the maximum resolution is 720p (1280 x 720 pixels) and the maximum frame rate is 25/30 frames per second (50/60 Hz). It provides a cropped view for a 1080p sensor unit and the full view for a 720p sensor unit like AXIS F1004.
In either 1080p or 720p mode, AXIS F44 supports quad view streaming, which combines separate views from four sensor units into one for simultaneous viewing. Each scene would take up a quarter of the display area.
Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) – Forensic Capture
AXIS F44 offers WDR – Forensic Capture on all four channels in the 720p capture mode. WDR – Forensic Capture can be activated when connected to an AXIS F Sensor Unit that supports this feature. WDR – Forensic Capture enables a high level of detail to be visible in both very bright and dark areas of a scene. The technology is ideally suited for scenarios such as at entrances, in front of ATMs or in a bus where the subject may be dark against a bright background, or in nighttime situations where the camera must handle low-light environments together with bright lights from vehicles, street lamps, signage and stores. AXIS F44, together with AXIS F Sensor Units, provides color video in light as low as 0.3 lux.
