"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

A whole new definition of PTZ

The AXIS 212 PTZ is no ordinary PTZ. Its the only PTZ network camera that provides full overview, and instant, one-click pan/tilt/zoom -  with maintained sharp image resolution. And its all done without moving parts, so theres no wear and tear. In short, its a whole new definition of PTZ.

Full overview and instant zoom - yet no moving parts

Conventional PTZ cameras allow the user to pan, tilt and zoom, but not to see the whole video scene - just one portion at a time. The AXIS 212 PTZ gives the user the whole picture, then allows instant pan/tilt/zoom to get the details.

Instant pan/tilt/zoom

The 3x zoom provides instant, one-click optical zoom functionality. Consequently, from the overview image, a security officer can zoom in 3 times on any suspicious behavior by just clicking on the part of the image where its happening. No other PTZ camera can zoom in instantly on off-centered action. And since there is no movement in the lens system, the camera instantly changes the field of view.

Whether in overview or fully zoomed in, you get perfect image quality in VGA resolution. Zooming - the instant, one-click, 3x zoom - does not decrease the image quality. Edges do not become jagged. More importantly, when you zoom in on suspicious behavior, you increase your chances of being able to identify what is happening and who is involved.

No moving parts

The AXIS 212 PTZ achieves full overview as well as instant pan/tilt/zoom without any moving parts, which means no wear and tear. This unique feature is based on two determining factors:

  • A wide-angle lens combined with a 3 megapixel sensor
  • Utilization of the full "windowing" possibilities: the camera captures predetermined sections of the overview without mechanical motion.

The advantages of no moving parts are considerable:

  • No noise - thus making the camera even more discreet.
  • No way to tell where the camera is looking. In fact, the camera seems to follow anyone on the premises.
  • No delay for mechanical movement - enabling instant pan/tilt/zoom, and thus no time lag in the images.

Resolution - Sharp and maintained

Overview - The Starting Point
By having a full overview of 140° (pan), the AXIS 212 PTZ wastes no pixels. This means that the full image sensor can be used for image quality purposes - and the difference is astonishing.
