Axis complements AXIS Q35 Series with two multi-megapixel, outdoor-ready fixed domes. Developed for solid performance in challenging light conditions and rough environments, the new models are perfect for surveillance in a wide range of areas such as critical infrastructure, city surveillance, airports, railway stations, harbours, healthcare, pharmaceutical and food industries. Based on top-quality ½” sensors and Axis’ latest image processing, AXIS Q3518-LVE delivers 4K, and the stainless-steel AXIS Q3517-SLVE delivers 5 MP, in 30 fps with outstanding image quality in challenging light conditions. This includes support for Axis OptimizedIR illumination, forensic WDR and Lightfinder technology. The new models also support Axis’ award-winning Zipstream technology, which preserves important details in full image quality, while reducing the storage and bandwidth needs by an average of 50% or more. Withstands harshest conditions Shock detection feature means they can send an alarm when exposed The advanced AXIS Q35 cameras have been designed to withstand the harshest conditions, with stable operation in extreme temperatures from -50 °C to +60 °C. AXIS Q3517-SLVE features a marine-grade stainless steel casing that is highly resistant to the corrosive effects of salt, detergents and other chemicals. AXIS Q35-LVE/-SLVE cameras are IK10+ rated and have been tested to ensure they can withstand 50 joules of impact. The shock detection feature means they can send an alarm when exposed. The cameras’ electronic image stabilization (EIS) means they provide steady video even during intense vibrations. Additional camera features Pre-installed AXIS Motion Guard, AXIS Fence Guard and AXIS Loitering Guard analytics for proactive surveillance The use of dynamic overlays to add extra information, such as weather update, to the video feed External sensors can be connected to input ports to trigger alarms or actions, and if the connection to a sensor is cut, the camera can send an alarm Relays and other external devices can be connected to outputs to, among others, activate lights, lock/unlock doors If there is a power outage, redundant DC power and Power over Ethernet help ensure a reliable power supply to the cameras Installation is made easy with flexible cable management, optional connection to any conduit and helpful tools such as leveling assistant, auto rotation, remote zoom and focus Pre-installed analytics provide excellent support for proactive surveillance Petra Bennermark, Global Product Manager at Axis Communications, comments, "The new additions to our top-of-the-line AXIS Q35 Series will help our customers ensure safety even at the most challenging conditions, whether it comes to light, weather or a rough environment. The cameras’ outstanding image quality give the operators the best possible chance of identifying people, objects and vehicles, and the pre-installed analytics provide excellent support for proactive surveillance."
Axis Communications, the provider of network video, introduces Forensic WDR, an enhanced Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) method that focuses on achieving high forensic value in a number of new cameras. WDR is the term commonly used for the art of balancing both very dark and very bright areas in a scene. It is also known as HDR (High Dynamic Range). In the surveillance industry, the aim is to capture forensic detail at all times. Until now, the WDR methods on the market have not been able to add sufficient forensic value to ultra-high resolution cameras or surveillance scenes that feature a significant amount of movement. In launching its Forensic WDR, Axis has addressed both issues in several new cameras. Forensic WDR “Current WDR methods on the market struggle to capture the forensic detail needed, especially in challenging scenes with a great deal of movement and where high resolution is needed,” explains Johan Paulsson, Chief Technology Officer at Axis Communications. “With Forensic WDR, the benefits of WDR can be realised even in such scenarios.” “Forensic WDR pushes the borders and even allows for multi-megapixel cameras to reveal the details in scenes with difficult light conditions,” added Petra Bennermark, Global Product Manager, Axis Communications. “With our new wide range of fixed domes, offering from 5-megapixel resolution up to 4K, we make this technology available for both customers with limited means and for applications exposed to the harshest conditions.” Cameras featuring Forensic WDR Axis now announces several cameras that feature Forensic WDR, including new additions to the AXIS P32 and AXIS Q35 Series: AXIS P3227-LV Network Camera AXIS P3227-LVE Network Camera AXIS P3228-LV Network Camera AXIS P3228-LVE Network Camera AXIS Q3517-LV Network Camera AXIS Q3517-LVE Network Camera AXIS P32 and AXIS Q35 The new AXIS P32 models offer cost-efficient surveillance that requires minimal effort to install. These fixed domes deliver outstanding video performance with multi-megapixel resolution in full frame rate up to 4K, featuring Forensic WDR, OptimisedIR and Zipstream. The new AXIS Q35 cameras offer unparalleled video surveillance with a comprehensive feature set, including power redundancy. Electronic Image Stabilisation and IK10+ rating, making them ideal for harsh environments, they address the need for monitoring in multi-megapixel detail at full frame rate with the best video quality on the market, including Forensic WDR, Lightfinder, OptimisedIR and Zipstream. Axis network cameras featuring Forensic WDR will be showcased at IFSEC International 2017, which takes place from June 20-22 at London ExCeL.
Axis announces enhancements to its Zipstream compression technology to support the increased data streaming and storage demands of 360-degree panoramic cameras and 4K resolution. Zipstream ensures that important forensic details of video footage are maintained, while minimising bandwidth and storage requirements by an average of 50% or more. Axis also announces two new domes that include the enhanced Zipstream, offering cost effective, 360-degree, high-resolution coverage. Customer demands for video surveillance can appear contradictory: an increasing desire for improved quality, resolution, and coverage, with a simultaneous need to control costs in relation to bandwidth and data storage. The response from Axis Communications, the provider of network video, is to continually develop its unique Zipstream video compression technology, to embrace the developments in network camera capabilities. Zipstream enhancement “Storage and bandwidth make up a significant part of the total cost of a surveillance system. Axis developed Zipstream to address the specific needs of the security industry. That is, to minimise these requirements without losing forensic details”, said Johan Paulsson, Chief Technology Officer at Axis Communications. “We are happy and proud to announce the enhancement of Zipstream now embraces both panoramic and ultra-high resolution cameras." Axis also announces AXIS M3047-P and AXIS M3048-P Network Cameras, which take advantage of enhanced Zipstream technology to deliver cost effective 360-degree coverage. They are compact fixed mini dome ‘fisheye’ cameras giving complete coverage to customers. The cameras support both camera-side as well as client-side dewarping New camera features Featuring an attractive, smaller design than their predecessors, the new cameras are flat and subtle, with no dome over the lens - making them more discreet and eliminating the risk of reflections in the dome. Smoke-detector and vandal-resistant casings, as well as a black casing, are offered as accessories for both cameras. The cameras support both camera-side as well as client-side dewarping. The smooth client-side dewarping in AXIS Camera Station or other video management systems can be easily performed in live view or on recorded material of the full 360° overview. AXIS M3047-P, with a 6-megapixel sensor, and AXIS M3048-P, with a 12-megapixel sensor, both deliver full frame rate video and excellent image quality, including overall sharpness and light sensitivity. “Combining these new 360-degree domes with the enhanced Zipstream technology really does deliver a cost-effective solution for customers, providing comprehensive coverage while ensuring the detail of that panoramic view is not lost when streaming and storing data,” added Petra Bennermark, Global Product Manager at Axis Communications. The enhancements to Zipstream will be showcased together with above-mentioned panoramic cameras and new 4K cameras at IFSEC International 2017, which takes place from June 20-22 at London ExCeL.
