The introduction of megapixel or HDTV fixed network cameras has meant greater resolution images but not always better image quality. Maintaining image sharpness, particularly in varying outdoor lighting conditions, has proved challenging. It is a problem that has highlighted the limitations of existing lens alternatives and the need for a better solution. 

Axis Communications’ search for a solution has now led to the introduction of a new and revolutionary precise iris control, P-Iris.

P-Iris not only benefits megapixel cameras but all fixed network cameras. The system optimizes the iris opening under all lighting conditions and the result is images with better contrast, clarity, resolution and depth of field. In short, P-Iris means improved image sharpness and increased image usability for network video surveillance operators.
