Connected between the camera and the switch, the new AXIS T61 Series units use portcast, a unique feature that allows for audio and I/O to be transferred digitally over the network cable between the camera and the interface. AXIS T6101 and AXIS T6112 Audio and I/O Interface will seamlessly bring the benefits of audio and I/O to a number of popular Axis cameras that do not have these capabilities already built-in.
With the camera being separate from the audio and I/O interface, customers can place both in the ideal position: for instance, a discreet location for a small camera, with audio capture taking place closer to the point of interest. In adding support for two-way audio, customers can benefit from listening in to transactions or incidents, for example, or communicate warnings to intruders. Moving forward, audio analytics, such as aggression detection, will also be supported.
