Clear and audible voice transmission over long distances
With the new AXIS C3003-E Network horn speaker Axis provides an easy installable outside speaker, suitable for a clear, audible voice transmission over long distances via network. Combined with a powerful Axis video surveillance solution, a user can cater to persons and thus prevent unwanted activities. The speaker is ideal for upgrading of video surveillance in outdoor areas such as parking lots, construction sites and critical infrastructure and public places. The speaker can be easily installed and integrated into a video surveillance system or an IP phone system. So announcements are possible from anywhere with network connectivity.
Complementing Axis’ network video offering, AXIS C3003-E was developed in close cooperation with customers in the video surveillance industry. The loudspeaker’s benefits include lower installation costs, easy integration and ensured reliability. It allows customers to easily add a remote speaking function to their surveillance system to deter crime or other unwanted activities.
AXIS C3003-E is a self-contained loudspeaker that offers signal transmission, decoding, amplification and speaker all in one unit. Unlike many analog speakers, there is no need for AXIS C3003-E to connect to a separate amplifier or to a network camera to plug into a network. As a standalone unit, AXIS C3003-E can be placed anywhere, enabling a flexible, scalable and cost-effective approach to system design. An external power supply is also not required, thanks to the speaker’s support for Power over Ethernet (PoE). With one network cable, AXIS C3003-E receives power and plugs directly into a video management system and/or Voice over IP (VoIP) telephony system.
The loudspeaker offers a high sound pressure level for intelligible speech over long distances. It enables high-quality voices, thanks to advanced signal processing. An innovative feature in AXIS C3003-E is the unique Auto Speaker Test, which can check that the speaker is in working order by providing audio feedback to the system.
AXIS C3003-E can play a pre-recorded audio file when it is manually or automatically triggered in response to an alarm event. The speaker comes with pre-recorded audio files such as trespassing and emergency messages, and allows users to upload their own audio.
The loudspeaker easily integrates with video management systems. Compatible software include those from Aimetis Corp., Genetec, Milestone Systems and NICE Systems, as well as the forthcoming AXIS Camera Station 4.20, which is aimed at small and mid-sized installations. AXIS C3003-E also integrates with VoIP telephony systems that use SIP (Session Initiation Protocol), enabling users to call the loudspeaker and make announcements even from their mobile phone. As a network product, each AXIS C3003-E can be selectively addressed since each has a unique IP address.
