The latest from the network video surveillance product manufacturer Axis Communications is its Q1941-E Thermal Network Camera.
The bullet-style IP camera from the Q Series is engineered for 24/7 operation in adverse environmental conditions. It provides a means of turnkey outdoor detection in situations where intruder detection is critical.
“Thermal cameras are not only reliable for round-the-clock detection, but [they] are also useful for verification [to] help distinguish between a real and false alarm,” notes Fredrik Nilsson, general manager, North America, Axis Communications. “Thanks to its powerful processor, Axis' Q1941-E is highly capable of running video analytics via the Axis Camera Application Platform (ACAP). Together with our ADP partners, customers can find a tailored surveillance solution that meets their specific needs.”
Axis points out the camera delivers a 384 x 288 thermal resolution and it provides high levels of contrast for quality image reproduction. Axis also offers the camera with a choice of five lenses (7mm, 13mm, 19mm, 35mm and 60mm) to help dealers specify a security solution that meets their clients' exact security needs.
In addition, the camera features Axis' Zipstream technology that is said to optimize video streams in real time to preserve important image details while compressing static portions of the image that include white walls, vegetation and other elements to help maintain network bandwidth and the preservation of storage space.
