Axis M3007-PV 360-Degree IP Camera

One of the cameras we wanted to test came from Axis Communications. To test its M3007-PV, we used Wavestore VMS as our software platform due to the software’s ability to de-warp 360-degree camera video. Following are the results of our tests.

Power

Generally speaking, IP cameras today can be powered using PoE (Power over Ethernet) or using good old fashioned DC/AC wiring. According to Andrew Wong, project engineer for AISG, using PoE cameras will reduce the cost and time for a project. “PoE will eliminate the need to hire an electrician to run conduit and create a power source for your devices,” he explains. “Additionally, PoE devices can easily be installed and relocated with a single Ethernet wire pull.” He adds that PoE deployments should include a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) connected to the PoE switch to ensure, in the event of an outage or surge, all devices are protected and kept running. The Axis M3007-PV supports PoE, but not traditional electrical wiring.
