Autofocus centrepiece of new Axis camera range
The AXIS Q6155-E PTZ Dome Network Camera surveillance collection is launched as autofocus is recognised to be "one of the biggest challenges" currently faced through the use of pan-tilt-zoom cameras
Axis Communications launched a new range of cameras that offer "much faster and more accurate autofocus even in the most challenging lighting conditions".
The AXIS Q6155-E PTZ Dome Network Camera features laser focus technology and provides high-quality images, and the company says the range is "valuable in situations when people or objects need to be identified quickly and precisely".
Kent Fransson, global product manager at Axis Communications, added: "Autofocus is one of the biggest challenges for conventional PTZ [pan-tilt-zoom] cameras today.
"When the lighting conditions are difficult – such as for example at dusk or dawn – the camera takes longer to autofocus.
"Our new laser focus technology allows the camera to measure the distance to objects no matter what the lighting conditions are.
"This measurement is also much more exact and it is taken in an instant. This means the camera is always focusing optimally, and providing clear images at all times.”
According to a company statement, the AXIS Q6155-E features Sharpdome, a technology that allows for monitoring of objects up to 20° above the camera horizon.
The camera features HDTV 1080p resolution and 30x optical zoom, an improved sensor, Axis’ Lightfinder technology, and Axis’ Speed Dry functions.
Axis said the product range is best suited for city and perimeter surveillance, and installations across criticial infrastructure, transportation, education, industrial, and government facilities.
