Axis Communications, the world
leader in network video, today announced an improved range of thermal network
cameras with the launch of AXIS Q1922 and AXIS Q1922-E. The latest additions to
the AXIS Q19 Series, which was launched in January 2010 as the world’s first
true thermal network camera series, feature VGA resolution and a wide selection
of lens alternatives to ensure better image quality and extended detection
ranges in complete darkness and challenging visual conditions.
The VGA resolution of the indoor AXIS Q1922 and outdoor-ready Q1922-E models
provides more pixels on the detected person or object, which significantly
increases reliability, improves surveillance efficiency and facilitates
integration of intelligent video applications such as motion and cross-line
detection. The new cameras are ideal for cost-efficient 24/7 area or perimeter
surveillance for critical applications such as at airports, power plants,
transportation hubs and harbors, and can be easily integrated into any IP-based
surveillance system like those found at school and hospital campuses, warehouses
and construction sites.
“The combination of thermal capabilities and IP video at an attractive price has
made this technology – once only reserved for military-grade applications –
appealing for a much wider range of installations and provides a higher level of
safety and security to many more sites,” said Fredrik Nilsson, general manager,
Axis Communications Inc. “As we continue to come out with enhanced thermal
network camera models with varying lens options, our integrator partners and
their customers have the ability to considerably enhance the detection quality
and range of their 24/7 security solutions while more easily integrating
Thermal IP cameras create images based on the natural heat that radiates from
any object, vehicle or person. This gives these cameras the power to see through
complete darkness and deliver images that allow operators to detect and act on
suspicious activity. Thermal network cameras can also handle many difficult
weather conditions better than conventional cameras, allowing operators to see
through haze, dust and smoke.
AXIS Q1922 is designed for indoor surveillance, while AXIS Q1922-E is an
IP66-rated, outdoor-ready camera. The four available lens alternatives, 640x480
VGA resolution and advanced image processor further improve effective area and
perimeter surveillance. The four lens alternatives also sustain maximum
flexibility in range and field of view, ranging from 320 – 1,970 yards,
depending on the lens option.
The thermal network cameras also support key IP surveillance features such as
H.264 and Motion JPEG compression, two-way audio, local storage and Power over
Ethernet. Additionally, as intelligent video is a key component of any thermal
network camera, AXIS Q1922/-E provides a tampering alarm, motion detection and
support for AXIS Camera Application Platform.
The entire AXIS Q19 Thermal Camera Series is supported by the industry’s largest
base of video management software through the Axis Application Development
Partner program as well as AXIS Camera Station. AXIS Q19 Series also supports
the ONVIF specification for interoperability of network video products.
AXIS Q1922/-E is expected to be available in January 2012 through Axis’
distribution channels. For photos of Axis products and more, please visit
