Axis Q1635 network camera CHELMSFORD, Mass. — Axis Communications, a manufacturer of surveillance cameras and security systems, introduced a new fixed network camera with a 1/2-inch sensor, designed for city surveillance applications. Thanks to its large sensor and the supplied lens, the Q1635 is Axis’ most light sensitive 1080p HDTV network camera to date. Featuring improved near infrared (IR) sensitivity, in a range where the human eye cannot see, the camera delivers high-quality black-and-white images in situations with little or diminishing visible light — delivering video with less motion blur and low-bandwidth consumption.
The camera’s advanced features for optimizing image quality also include Wide Dynamic Range – Forensic Capture, Axis Lightfinder technology, electronic image stabilization, shock detection and defogging, as well as 60 frames per second in HDTV 1080p resolution.
“Many surveillance applications require high-quality images that enable the identification of people and objects even in highly variable and challenging lighting conditions,” said Scott Dunn, director of business development for Axis Communications. “The Q1635 maintains extremely high image quality by seamlessly transitioning in complex light scenarios from WDR to Lightfinder, making it ideal for monitoring critical infrastructure sites, banks and public places such as squares, parks, streets and alleys.”
Thanks to Wide Dynamic Range – Forensic Capture, the new camera provides a a high level of detail, visible in both dark and bright areas. The camera seamlessly transitions between WDR and Lightfinder mode, which further optimizes image quality. The Axis Q1635 camera is equipped with all the features of the company’s Q1615 camera, with an additional defog functionality to further improve image quality in tough weather conditions.
The Axis Q1635 camera is supported by the industry’s largest base of video management software through the Axis Application Development Partner Program, and Axis Camera Station. The camera includes support for the company’s Camera Companion, Camera Application Platform, Video Hosting System and ONVIF for easy camera system integration and for application developers to provide the camera with intelligent capabilities.
