AXIS P7304 is a full-featured four-channel video encoder with great video performance. This encoder supports HD analog (high definition TVI, high definition CVI and analog HD) and standard resolution analog cameras. It offers support for two-way audio and intelligent analytics such as motion detection, as well as audio detection with analog and digital AXIS T83 microphones. AXIS P7304 features RS-485/422 for controlling analog PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) cameras. It provides edge storage through a microSDHC memory card slot. And, thanks to configurable input/outputs you can connect external devices such as sensors, relays and speakers to activate lights, open/close doors and trigger audio clips.

With AXIS P7304 Video Encoder you can migrate to IP surveillance at your own pace. Including the latest generation of Axis chip, it supports HD analog cameras and provides a high level of defense to protect your system. Plus, Zipstream and support for H.264/H.265 reduces bandwidth and storage requirements, while preserving high image quality.

Axis video encoders allows you to migrate to the world of IP surveillance while protecting your investment in analog equipment, so you get to keep all your existing cameras and cabling. And, thanks to support for Power over Ethernet (PoE) you can connect directly to your IP network with just one network cable for connectivity and power. Furthermore, this flexible solution lets you choose between saving the recordings on a server, on the edge or in the cloud.

Like all Axis products, AXIS P7304 is built on an open platform so you're free to use open-standard hardware or software from the supplier of your choice. Signed firmware and secure boot guarantees that the firmware hasn't been altered and only authorized firmware is installed. And with on-going firmware upgrades, you can depend on Axis first-class quality and support all the way. Plus, Zipstream with support for H.264/H.265 video compression significantly reduces bandwidth and storage requirements without compromising image quality.
