Axis Communications today launched the world’s smallest, high-performance network camera with a built-in Web server. The AXIS 205 Network Camera provides small businesses and professional home users with high image resolution (640 x 480 pixels) and full frame rate (30 frames per second) at a low price point.
The AXIS 205 is ideal for streaming video for remote monitoring purposes, such as monitoring a property or business or keeping an eye on a vacation home. Unlike Web cameras, the AXIS 205 operates independently of a PC and contains a built-in Web server that allows users to assign each network camera a unique IP address so that live images can be accessed from anywhere in the world via the Internet. It is about the size of a deck of cards (approximately 3.4 x 2 x 1.3 inches), and its PC-independent design provides more flexible placement options as it fits easily into surrounding environments.
The AXIS 205 is available immediately through Axis’ distribution channels for a suggested retail price is $199.
