Axis Expands Multi-Imager Lineup

Author: John Honovich, Published on Mar 29, 2016

Last year, Axis had big news releasing a 33MP multi-imager camera (see Axis 33MP Camera Tested (Q3709).

Now, Axis is releasing two more multi-imager cameras.

In this note, we examine how these models expand Axis lineup and how it changes their competitive positioning against Arecont and the market generally.

This is rare. No commentary or discussion on an Axis article. Take a look at the long string of comments on the lower cost M Series article.

Does this mean nobody here cares much about multisensor cameras?

Minidomes are used 10x or 20x more than multisensor cameras, so that is certainly one reason. And, as for multisensor cameras, there is nothing outrageously groundbreaking nor terrible about this, so it is hard for people to have a strong opinion.
