In the past month, Axis has announced 5 new series of low cost IP cameras: M31-VE, P5522-E, P5512M11-E, Q6035 and the M50.  While the sheer number is somewhat overwhelmingly, this is an important expansion that impacts the overall market. This provides Axis with a broad low cost product portfoilio that will significantly increase their competitiveness for budget applications.
