Axis Communications Inc., a producer of video-surveillance equipment, launched its AXIS Q1931-E Thermal Network Camera, which increases Axis’ Q-line of fixed thermal-network cameras for outdoor surveillance.
The AXIS Q1931-E is a bullet-style Internet protocol camera that arrives ready for outdoor installation in harsh environments and tough climates, the company says. The Q1931-E is designed for d
eployment at locations where early detection of an intrusion attempt is critical, such as at industrial facilities, fence lines or railroad tracks, Axis says. The camera can provide images from areas covered by complete darkness and during challenging conditions, the company says.
The Q1931-E offers high-contrast 384 x 288 resolution thermal images with four available lens options to provide maximum flexibility for different detection ranges and fields of view, which extend from 240 yards to 1970 yards, the company says. The Q1931-E is also the first thermal camera to support Axis’ “Corridor Format,” which is designed to monitor long fences, shorelines and tunnels by delivering a vertically oriented, portrait field of view, according to Axis.
Axis launched its the first camera in the Q-line — the AXIS Q19 — in 2010, says Fredrik Nilsson, Axis’ general manager. With the Q1931-E, Axis continues to expand that product line while enabling customers to leverage thermal technology, he says.
