Axis strengthens thermal offering with superior VGA resolution camera
Source: Axis Communications AB | Date: 11/08/2011
Axis Communications, the world leader in network video, today announces an improved range of Thermal Network Cameras, AXIS Q1922 and AXIS Q1922-E. The VGA resolution and the large variety of lens alternatives ensure better image quality and extended detection range. In addition, the VGA resolution provides more pixels on the detected object, which significantly increases reliability and facilitates integration of intelligent video applications, improving surveillance efficiency. The new cameras are ideal for cost efficient 24/7 area or perimeter surveillance of security applications such as airports, power-plants and harbors.
“After the successful introduction of our first thermal network cameras, we are now launching the new AXIS Q1922/-E. The new camera models have superior VGA resolution which will enhance detection quality and range considerably. The greater resolution will also enable easy and reliable integration of third party applications such as trip-wire and motion detection offered by our wide network of development partners” says Erik Fr?nnlid, Axis’ Director of Product Management. “AXIS Q1922/-E allows the customer to easily integrate thermal surveillance with any network video system to further enhance 24/7 security even in challenging conditions.”
Thermal IP cameras create images based on the heat that radiates from any object, vehicle or person. This gives thermal network cameras the power to see through complete darkness and deliver images that allow operators to detect and act on suspicious activity. Thermal network cameras can also handle many difficult weather conditions better than conventional cameras, allowing operators to see through haze, dust and smoke.
AXIS Q1922 is designed for indoor surveillance, while AXIS Q1922-E is an IP66-rated, outdoor-ready camera. The four available lens alternatives, the 64－480 VGA resolution and the advanced image processor further improve effective area and perimeter surveillance. The four lens alternatives sustain maximum flexibility in range and field of view, ranging from 300 m (328 yd.) up to 1800 m (1970 yd.), depending on lens option. In addition, the cameras support key IP-Surveillance features such as H.264 and Motion JPEG, two-way audio, local storage and Power over Ethernet. Intelligent video is a key component of any thermal camera, and AXIS Q1922/-E provide tampering alarm, motion detection, and support for AXIS Camera Application Platform.
AXIS Q1922/-E Thermal Network Cameras are supported by the industry’s largest base of video management software through the Axis Application Development Partner program as well as AXISCamera Station. They also support the ONVIF specification for interoperability of network video products. The cameras will be available in January 2012 through Axis’ distribution channels.
