AXIS FA54 Main Unit supports Axis Forensic WDR at all times. AXIS FA54 prioritizes the darker areas of a scene with high-contrast lighting, such as in a backlight scenario where you have a person standing in front of a very bright background. In such a scenario, a traditional camera with no support for wide dynamic range delivers a dark image of the person; with Forensic WDR in AXIS FA54, colors and details in the darker areas are more visible. The WDR technology in AXIS FA products is also optimized for motion, so there is no motion artifact when a fast-moving object passes by. In low light scenes, an AXIS FA Series system delivers excellent color video with low noise.
A system with AXIS FA54 Main Unit and four HDTV 1080p sensor units is often less costly than four standard HDTV 1080p cameras with similar functionalities. And with only one Ethernet cable for four sensor units, you can lower your requirement for network ports and save on the cost for a network switch. In addition, with one IP address, you may only need a single video management software (VMS) license for viewing video from four sensor units.
An AXIS FA Series system also provides savings in bandwidth and storage needs. Axis Zipstream technology, for instance, efficiently encodes H.264 video streams, reducing storage and bandwidth requirements by up to 50% or more while maintaining important details. Event-triggered recording using analytics also helps reduce bandwidth and storage use.
