Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, recently announced two outstanding fixed network cameras – AXIS Q1604 and AXIS Q1604-E. These cameras offer ideal solutions for surveillance in highly variable lighting conditions. For instance, when light comes through a glass window or entrance creating both dark and bright zones, AXIS Q1604/-E Network Cameras allow the user to easily and clearly identify both people and objects.
“Adapted for wide dynamic range scenarios, Axis’ exceptional ‘dynamic capture’ capability allows these cameras to handle blinding light and to provide superb images in difficult lighting conditions,” said Erik Frännlid, Director of Product Management, Axis Communications.
The indoor AXIS Q1604 and the outdoor-ready AXIS Q1604-E deliver progressive scan image quality at 1MP / HDTV 720p resolution and multiple, individually configurable H.264 and Motion JPEG video streams simultaneously. The cameras’ other features include day and night functionality, varifocal lens, remote back focus and support for two-way audio. The IP66- and NEMA 4X-rated AXIS Q1604-E, which comes with a wall mount bracket and a sunshield, is protected from dust, rain, snow and sun, and can operate in temperatures from -40 °C to 50°C (-40 °F to 122 °F).
The cameras will be available in Q4 2011 at the suggested retail price of US$ 999 for AXIS Q1604 and US$ 1299 for AXIS Q1604-E.
