AXIS 206M Megapixel 
Network Camera

The smallest megapixel network camera in the world

The AXIS 206M Megapixel Network Camera is designed for security surveillance and remote monitoring applications that require superior quality, high resolution Motion JPEG images of up to 1280x1024 pixels. 

The large image format enables the camera to capture greater detail or offer a wider field of view. The AXIS 206M supports HDTV widescreen format (16:9). Going beyond regular TV resolution, it provides significant advantages over traditional analog CCTV security cameras.

The AXIS 206M enables live viewing and remote administration with the use of a standard Web browser. The AXIS 206M package includes an AXIS Camera Explorer software, which provides live viewing and remote management while stationary on a PC, or on the move using a PDA. For more video and alarm management features, a wide range of video management software is available from Axis and its Application Development Partners worldwide.

A higher image resolution gives users an ability to see more details when zooming in on an image.
