Video surveillance provider Axis Communications announced the debut of its latest product and solutions offering at the ISC West security conference in Las Vegas. The unveiling included a series of panoramic cameras, two dome cameras and a new thermal camera designed for large-scale remote temperature monitoring.
The company says that each of these devices is built on ARTPEC-8 chip technology and is equipped with a Deep Learning Processing Unit (DLPU), making it possible to run advanced video analytics at the network edge. The new products further underscore the company’s commitment to making deep learning capabilities accessible to all Axis customers.
“Video analytics and AI-based technologies are rapidly evolving and providing new solutions to security and business-related challenges,” said Fredrik Nilsson, Vice President, Americas, Axis Communications, Inc.
“Axis is committed to putting deep learning capabilities at the edge – making our ARTPEC-8 chip with DLPU the foundation of our new cameras – to offer greater intelligence, efficiency and opportunity. Visitors to the Axis ISC West booth can demo our newly launched cameras and meet our ecosystem partners to discover amazing solutions that leverage our tech and expand system capabilities.”
The products debuted include:
Ultra-compact panoramic cameras designed for high-quality indoor surveillance
The AXIS M4327-P and AXIS M4328-P Panoramic Cameras are discreet and easy to install and deliver 360° or 180° views at up to 30 FPS. Equipped with a 6MP lens and a 12MP lens, respectively, the cameras can ensure true colors and great details in challenging light or near darkness.
Key features include:
Panoramic mini-dome cameras designed for any light conditions
Discreet and outdoor-ready, the AXIS M4317-PLVE camera includes a 6 MP sensor while the AXIS M4318-PLVE includes a 12 MP sensor. Both deliver outstanding images in any light conditions and feature a stereographic lens and Sharpdome 360, delivering greater sharpness at the edge of the image.
The devices are built on ARTPEC-8 and include built-in cybersecurity features to help prevent unauthorized access and safeguard the broader security system.
Advanced domes with remote adjustment and support for advanced analytics
Built on the company’s latest system-on-chip (SoC), the AXIS Q3626-VE and AXIS Q3628-VE cameras each feature a deep learning processing unit for improved processing capabilities. Thanks to Lightfinder 2.0 and Forensic WDR, these advanced cameras deliver outstanding image quality and forensic details, even in low light.
Enclosed in metal casings, Axis says these IK10-rated, vandal-resistant cameras are ideal for tough environments and rough weather. Electronic image stabilization ensures smooth video in situations where the cameras are subject to vibrations.
Multisensor panoramic camera capable of delivering 180° coverage with no blind spots
The AXIS P3827-PVE offers panoramic overview of extensive areas with 180° horizontal and 90° vertical coverage with no blind spots. For a complete 360° overview, two cameras can also be mounted back-to-back using AXIS T94V01C Dual Camera Mount. Horizon straightening capabilities ensure visually balanced images, providing the operator with a more natural viewing experience.
This camera also offers support for edge-to-edge technology, making it easy to add additional connected devices, such as support for audio using AXIS T61 Audio and I/O Interface.
Robust thermal camera for large-scale remote temperature monitoring
AXIS Q2101-TE can measure temperatures from -40 °C to 350 °C (-40 °F to 660 °F) and can trigger a notification when the temperature passes a set threshold or if the temperature increases or decreases too rapidly. This can help avoid unwanted downtime in production caused by overheating equipment as well as enable predictive maintenance planning.
Axis says this temperature measuring camera includes built-in cybersecurity features to help prevent unauthorized access and safeguard the system, as well as electronic image stabilization (EIS) to ensure smooth video even in scenes with vibrations.
