Axis Communications has introduced Forensic WDR, an enhanced Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) method that focuses on achieving high forensic value, in a number of new cameras. WDR is the term commonly used for the art of balancing both very dark and very bright areas in a scene. It is also known as HDR (High Dynamic Range).
In the surveillance industry, the aim is to capture the forensic details at all times. Until now, the WDR methods on the market have not been able to add sufficient forensic value to ultra-high resolution cameras or surveillance scenes that feature a significant amount of movement. In launching its Forensic WDR, Axis has addressed both issues in several new cameras.
“Current WDR methods on the market struggle to capture the forensic details needed, especially in challenging scenes with a great deal of movement and where high resolution is needed,” explained Johan Paulsson, CTO at Axis Communications. “With Forensic WDR, the benefits of WDR can be realised even in such scenarios.”
“Forensic WDR pushes the borders and even allows for multi-megapixel cameras to reveal the details in scenes with difficult light conditions,” added Petra Bennermark, global product manager, Axis Communications. “With our new wide range of fixed domes offering from 5 megapixel resolution up to 4K, we make this technology available for both customers with limited means and for applications exposed to the harshest conditions.”
The new AXIS P32 models offer costefficient cameras that require a minimum of effort to install. These fixed domes deliver outstanding video performance with multi-megapixel resolution in full frame rate up to 4K, featuring Forensic WDR, OptimisedIR and Zipstream.
The new AXIS Q35 cameras offer a comprehensive feature set, including power redundancy. Electronic image stabilisation and the IK10+ rating that makes them ideal for harsh environments. They address the need for monitoring in multi-megapixel detail at full frame rate, including Forensic WDR, Lightfinder, OptimisedIR and Zipstream.
