CHELMSFORD, Mass. -
Axis Communications, the global leader in network video
surveillance, announces its first corner-mount fixed network camera. The new
AXIS Q8414-LVS features a stainless steel anti-grip casing and is extremely
impact resistant, supporting the IK10+ 50 joules rating as well as the IP66/NEMA
4X rating for water resistance. The 24/7 indoor surveillance camera provides
superb image quality both day and night with capabilities like Lightfinder
technology, which enables life-like colors in low-light conditions, and built-in
invisible IR LED illuminator for video surveillance in complete darkness.
"High security environments like correctional facilities and psychiatric wards
present unique security challenges and a growing need to prevent self-harm and
conflict," said Scott Dunn, director of business development, Axis
Communications, Inc. "Specifically designed to meet these needs, AXIS Q8414-LVS
lacks ligature points, features an anti-grip design and is extremely vandal
resistant. The camera delivers superior HDTV video in any lighting, day or
night, for increased image usability."
The new anti-ligature AXIS Q8414-LVS is ideal for video surveillance of small
rooms in premises like correctional facilities, interview rooms, psychiatric
wards and medical observation rooms, as well as in elevators and stairwells.
Thanks to a built-in microphone and the possibility to integrate the network
camera into an alarm system via its I/O port, AXIS Q8414-LVS becomes part of the
overall surveillance solution, an important tool to protect and secure the
safety of people in high security environments. In addition, privacy masks
