Axis 7th generation ARTPEC chip

November 2019 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Axis has launched its 7th generation ARTPEC chip, optimised for network video. This new chip will be the basis for the vast majority of Axis network video products in the future.

The new chip will power an array of new capabilities and features coming to Axis network cameras. These features include even better imaging, enhanced security features, powerful compression and a possibility to run impressive analytics on the edge.

Moreover, since the chip is fully developed by Axis, it provides a layer of control that is crucial for effective cybersecurity. One of the first cameras to include this chip is the AXIS P1375.

Better imaging under any conditions

Thanks to a completely redesigned image processing pipeline, the chip further improves all the signature Axis technologies that have been created to address difficult light conditions. For example, Lightfinder 2.0 will deliver more saturated and realistic colours than ever in low-light, along with the sharpest images of moving objects even in the darkest areas. Likewise, Forensic WDR will provide clearer images of moving objects as well as enhanced detail in backlit scenes, or scenes with big differences between the lightest and darkest areas. Increased sensitivity to light also significantly extends the range of illumination for Axis cameras with IR.

Enhanced security features

ARTPEC-7 enables ‘built-in’ security features for Axis cameras, including signed firmware, so only secure authorised firmware can be installed, and secure boot, which prevents booting of unauthorised firmware.

Future Axis cameras will also let users choose between H.264 and H.265 video encoding depending on what best suits their system and surveillance needs. Either encoding standard in combination with Axis Zipstream technology will now require even lower bandwidth and storage space without sacrificing image quality. In addition, users are free to re-evaluate their choice of codec at any time if their requirements should change.

Finally, this chip features a real-time object detection engine that will make it possible for Axis and Axis partners to develop powerful analytics to automatically detect and differentiate between people, faces and objects.
