Light sensitive camera

August 2011 Products

Axis Communications has announcd a fixed network camera based on Axis’ Lightfinder technology. AXIS Q1602/-E Network Cameras are the solutions for indoor and outdoor surveillance in low-light conditions, especially where users require colour information in the video to enhance recognition and identification of objects.

Lightfinder makes AXIS Q1602 highly sensitive to low light, effectively allowing the camera to ‘see’ even in dark conditions. Axis’ knowledge base about image processing, chip development, choice of sensors and day/night lenses, allows the camera to maintain focus during daylight and infrared light and heralds a new generation of surveillance cameras with outstanding performance. The fixed network camera delivers progressive scan image quality at D1 (720 x 576) resolution, in both indoor and outdoor applications, where light is poor.

The indoor AXIS Q1602 and the outdoor-ready AXIS Q1602-E can deliver multiple, individually configurable H.264 and Motion JPEG video streams simultaneously. The camera’s other features include day and night functionality, varifocal lens, remote back focus and support for two-way audio. The IP66-rated AXIS Q1602-E, which comes with a wall mount bracket and a sunshield, is protected from dust, rain, snow and sun, andcan operate in temperatures from


-40 to 50°C.
