Axis Communications announces its first corner-mount fixed network camera. The new AXIS Q8414-LVS features a stainless steel anti-grip casing and is extremely impact resistant, supporting the IK10+ 50joules rating as well as the IP66/NEMA 4X rating for water resistance. The 24/7 indoor surveillance camera provides superb image quality both during day and night with capabilities like Lightfinder technology, which enables life-like colors in low-light conditions, and built-in invisible IR LED illuminator for video surveillance in complete darkness.

“In correctional facilities as well as in psychiatric wards, there is an increasing need to prevent self-harm and avoid internal conflicts among the residents,” says Erik Frännlid, Axis' Director of Product Management. “We have developed AXIS Q8414-LVS keeping in mind that a surveillance camera should lack ligature points and present an anti-grip design. On top of these features, it should also offer superb video quality during day and night and be extremely vandal resistant.”

The new AXIS Q8414-LVS is ideal for video surveillance of small rooms in premises like correctional facilities, interview rooms, psychiatric wards, and medical observation rooms as well as elevators and stairwells. Thanks to a built-in microphone and the possibility to integrate the network camera into an alarm system via its I/O port, AXIS Q8414-LVS becomes part of the overall surveillance solution, an important tool to protect and secure the safety of the people in high security environments. In addition, privacy masks assure that restricted areas are not monitored for privacy reasons or to protect the personnel.

Available in two color versions, powder coated white (AXIS Q8414-LVS White) and brushed stainless steel (AXIS Q8414-LVS Metal), the corner-mount network camera offers 1.3 Megapixel or HDTV 720p video stream. It features P-Iris control for an optimal depth of field, resolution, image contrast and clarity. The horizontal angle of view up to 105° covers the entire room without blind spots. Capabilities such as remote zoom and focus facilitate the optimization of the captured view during the installation.

AXIS Q8414-LVS features a unique design that has been developed to be perceived softer and less provocative than that of other security installations in correctional facilities and psychiatric wards. Working closely with prison and health authorities in several countries as well as system integrators and installers, Axis designed AXIS Q8414-LVS to feature as few cavities and holes as possible so prisoners and patients cannot stuff anything inside them and the camera is easy to clean.

AXIS Q8414-LVS Network Camera is supported by the industry's largest base of video management software through the Axis Application Development Partner Program, and AXIS Camera Station. The cameras include support for AXIS Camera Companion, AXIS Camera Application Platform, AXIS Video Hosting System and ONVIF for easy camera system integration and for application developers to provide the camera with intelligent capabilities.

Dahua launches 4K camera

Dahua launches 4K camera

Editor / Provider: Dahua | Updated: 10/28/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Dahua Technology officially introduces its first 4K network camera IPC-HF81200E, marching into UHD (Ultra HD) era.

Actually, 4K is not a new word, especially to the consumer electronics market. Defined and approval by International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a 4K camera should offer resolution at 3840 x 2160 with high color fidelity in a 16:9 format using progressive scanning at 25/30 Hz.

In other words, a 4K camera provides four times the resolution of 1080p, rendering superior image detail and surprisingly exquisite colors, which is ideal for large area monitoring, such as parking lot, railway station, safe city and etc.

Dahua 4K camera IPC-HF81200E fully complies with the above standard, it adopts 12.0-Megapixel sensor, incorporating with high-performance DSP to provide extraordinary image quality. Meanwhile, the camera offers 12MP (4000 x 3000) at 15 fps and 4K at 30fps preview with a suggested bandwidth at 8Mbps, ensuring a smooth live view without network resource waste; in addition, the camera provides triple streams options to satisfy various demand in application.

The IPC-HF81200E also supports multi-functions such as ultra-defog, ROI and intelligently detections, including face detections, tripwire, intrusion and scene change, which can smartly send alerts to end-users when any suspicious incident or behavior detected.

For example, there are two-fold benefits to set an intrusion area at a gas station entrance: on one hand, stuff can immediately get to the refueling spot and serve the driver as the second he received the triggered alert, which directly increases profit; on the other hand, any hidden dangers such as smoking or phone call can be observed and stopped to further ensure the safety.

“Dahua is among the first manufacturers to introduce a 4K camera, making the UHD surveillance to something real,” said Peter Pan, Product Manager at Dahua Technology. “Next year, we plan to render more selective possibilities to the market so that our customers can have more alternatives and find the right 4K camera to best meet their specific demands, and a high C/P ratio 4K camera will come out in this November.”

AXIS helps you keep an eye from home on baby in the hospital

AXIS helps you keep an eye from home on baby in the hospital

Editor / Provider: AXIS | Updated: 10/16/2014 | Article type: Commercial Markets

Mission
The Maas Hospital in Boxmeer (NL) gives young parents the opportunity to keep an eye on their child being cared for in the incubator, over the Internet, thanks to Axis network cameras.

Solution
J&K Automatisering, a company based in Oploo (NL) and a partner of Axis, advised the Maas Hospital to opt for a user-friendly application based on Axis network cameras. This solution is practical and nurse-proof. The monitoring system is simple to operate, with few commands and little opportunity to get things wrong. The incubator unit is divided into sections, and everything in a particular section is shown on the image. The cameras are all connected to a central server, which receives the images and controls access to them.

Result
Babies in the incubator unit cannot be discharged immediately because of illness or premature birth. This solution allows the hospital to give parents the opportunity to see their baby all the same. Parents can also authorize close friends and relatives to see the baby, too. The hospital mentioned a medical reason as well: mothers in the hospital's maternity unit need to be able to see their baby via a laptop, as contact between mother and child speeds up the mother's recovery.

Professional and easy to use
Images are accessed via a single portal, a central point of access to the images taken by the cameras. This gives the system a professional feel. Using a portal also means that information can be displayed on screen as well: for instance, telling viewers that babies are taken out of their cots when the nurses are carrying out nursing or medical procedures. If parents log on while this is happening, rather than looking at an empty cot they will see a message saying “We are looking after your baby.” It's also possible that a technical fault might have occurred, or that the camera might have been switched off for some reason. If that happens, the message “No image is currently available due to a fault or because the camera has been switched off.” For unexpected events the system has an emergency button. By pressing this button the power is cut and the image will disappear.

AXIS 211 Network Camera
The Maas Hospital chose the AXIS 211 Network Camera for the “Keeping an eye on your baby at home” project. This model always produces sharp, clear pictures. A varifocal DC iris lens, with a light sensitivity range from 0.75 to 500,000 lux, ensures that images are sharp even in low light conditions - during the evening and night, for example.

Another advantage of the AXIS 211 is its ability to take power via the midspan: a box that allows the network cable to feed both images and power to the camera. This means that no separate power cable is required. The emergency button is also connected to the midspan and controls the flow of power.

Privacy and storage
An important feature of this project is its matter-offact nature. It's a service that the hospital offers to parents - nothing more and nothing less. That is another reason why images of the newborn babies are never stored. Van Zitteren told us that this was a deliberate choice: “It has to do with privacy rules. If you create video images of someone and want to keep them, you have to comply with all kinds of legal regulations on privacy. The images in the Maas Hospital are changing all the time. The frames refresh every three seconds, and each new image takes the place of the preceding one. This has an added benefit: the cameras don't take up much room in the server's memory.”

Parents can create a photograph of their baby by means of a right-click with their mouse on the moving image. The response has been positive. Van Zitteren continues, “Of course, the system isn‘t designed to replace visiting the baby, but people at home want to know that everything‘ s OK. The images give them the reassurance or confirmation that their baby is in good hands.”
