Axis Launches First Stereographic Panoramic Camera

By: Ethan Ace, Published on Apr 05, 2018

Fisheye panoramics have not had much innovation in the past few years, with their multi-imager cousins getting most of the advances, e.g., repositionable panoramics.

Now, Axis is launching 2 new panoramic cameras including an 9MP one with a stereographic lens.

In this note, we examine the features of these new models, how they compare to Axis' current lineup, and how they impact positioning against rivals such as Hanwha and Hikvision.
