Axis Introduces Camera Based On Lightfinder Technology

Axis Communications introduces a fixed network camera based on Axis’ Lightfinder technology. AXIS Q1602/-E i designed for indoor and outdoor surveillance in low-light conditions, especially where users require color information in the video to enhance recognition and identification of objects.

“Axis’ unique Lightfinder technology allows fixed network cameras to reach a new level of image performance in difficult light conditions,” said Erik Frännlid, director of product management with Axis Communications. “This is a revolutionary improvement for video surveillance cameras and we believe that AXIS Q1602 will be the market’s most light sensitive camera. This product will be the best choice in dark conditions and low-light environment.”

Lightfinder makes AXIS Q1602 highly sensitive to low light, effectively allowing the camera to ‘see’ even in dark conditions. Axis’ knowledge base about image processing, chip development, choice of sensors and day/night lenses, allows the camera to maintain focus during daylight and infrared light and heralds a new generation of surveillance cameras with outstanding performance.

The fixed network camera delivers progressive scan image quality at D1 (720 x 576) resolution, in both indoor and outdoor applications, where light is poor.

The advanced Lightfinder technology will be especially beneficial in demanding video surveillance applications, such as construction sites, parking lots, perimeter and city surveillance. In contrast to conventional day/night cameras which switch to black and white in darkness, AXIS Q1602 can maintain colors even in very dark conditions.

There are many situations where surveillance video with color is an important factor for successful identification, and this capability greatly enhances the user’s ability to effectively identify people, vehicles and incidents. In many cases, IR illuminators are not required due to the camera’s extreme light sensitivity, which reduces installation costs.

The indoor AXIS Q1602 and the outdoor-ready AXIS Q1602-E can deliver multiple, individually configurable H.264 and Motion JPEG video streams simultaneously. The camera’s other features include day and night functionality, varifocal lens, remote back focus and support for two-way audio. The IP66-rated AXIS Q1602-E, which comes with a wall mount bracket and a sunshield, is protected from dust, rain, snow and sun.

AXIS Q1602/-E Network Cameras are supported by the industry’s largest base of video management software through the Axis’ Application Development Partner Program and

AXIS Camera Station. In addition, the cameras include support for AXIS Camera Application Platform and AXIS Video Hosting System (AVHS) with One-Click Camera connection for managing video monitoring services over the Internet. 

The cameras will be available in Q3 2011.
