Axis Communications Unveils New ARPTEC-7 Chipset With Focus on Cybersecurity, Lightfinder 2.0

At its annual press breakfast to kickoff ISC West on Wednesday, Axis Communications showcased how its products can be used to help create a smarter and safer city.

And the biggest announcement of the event was the new ARPTEC 7 chipset that will be used in the company's camera line. The first two cameras powered by the technology, AXIS P1375 and the AXIS P5655-E PTZ Dome, were also announced.

Axis expects that the chipset will become the basis for the majority of its network video products in the future.

The chipset brings a number of new features to the table, most importantly cybersecurity. Signed firmware only allows secure and authorized firmware to be installed while secure booth prevent unauthorized firmware.

Another big addition is Lightfinder 2.0 technology that brings more realistic colors and sharp images in dark situations.

Other additions include the ability to select between H.264 and H.265 compression and machine learning technology for analytics and image processing.

"We're one of only a few manufacturers that develops our own chipset, therefore the creation of ARTPEC 7 is a key differentiator for us and a significant benefit to our customers," said Fredrik Nilsson, VP, Americas, Axis Communications, Inc. "In this generation of ARTPEC we've included many important features, such as upgraded security. Also, unlike other chips, it's not a generic design.  Rather, it's 100% optimized for creating high-quality Axis network video solutions. This launch truly exemplifies our vision to innovate for a smarter, safer world."
