Camera for Detection in Complete Darkness and
With four different lens options, AXIS Q1931-E is
designed for detection in harsh environments; first IP
thermal camera supporting Axis’ unique Corridor Format
CHELMSFORD, Mass. –
June 5, 2013 –
Axis Communications, the world leader in network video
surveillance, announces a strong addition to its Q-line
of fixed thermal network cameras for outdoor perimeter
and area protection: AXIS Q1931-E Thermal Network
Camera. Compared to traditional thermal cameras that
typically are out of the price range for professional
surveillance and use outdated analog technology, AXIS
Q1931-E is an affordable, bullet-style IP camera that
comes out-of-the-box ready for outdoor installation in
harsh environments and tough climates.
AXIS Q1931-E will be ideal for monitoring of areas where
early detection of an intrusion attempt is critical –
specifically in complete darkness and challenging
conditions – including at industrial facilities, fence
lines or railroad tracks. See
film about the new AXIS
Q1931-E Thermal Network Camera.
AXIS Q1931-E offers high contrast 384x288 resolution
thermal images with four available lens options to
provide maximum flexibility for different detection
ranges and fields of view, extending from 220 m / 240
yd. (50°) to 1800 m / 1970 yd. (6°). AXIS Q1931-E is
also the first thermal camera to support Axis’ unique
Corridor Format, which allows the camera to deliver a
vertically-oriented, 9:16 portrait field of view,
perfect for situations such as monitoring long fences,
shorelines and tunnels.
Furthermore, since thermal technology accurately
complements intelligent video functionality, the
advanced image processing of AXIS Q1931-E is leveraged
for intelligent analytics such as motion detection,
camera tampering alarm and support for in-camera
analytics via the AXIS Camera Application Platform.
“In the past, thermal cameras were only available for
analog installations with high-budget or
government-related surveillance– yet Axis changed that
with the launch of the world’s first full-featured
thermal network camera AXIS Q19 Series in January 2010,”
said Fredrik Nilsson, general manager, Axis
Communications, Inc. “We continue to expand that product
line by setting a new standard for reliability and
affordability with AXIS Q1931-E, allowing customers to
leverage thermal technology as a critical player in
their overall network surveillance system.”
Additional features of AXIS Q1931-E include:
lightweight yet tough design that is both
IP66/NEMA4X and IK10 rated, making it resistant
to water, dust and vandalism.

Temperature Control capability that enables

straightforward mechanical, electrical and

also includes support for the complimentary
AXIS Camera Companion and

software developers to create intelligent capabilities
to run inside the camera,
AXIS Video Hosting System for
integration with hosted video systems, and

through Axis distribution channels at the suggested
retail price of $3499.
