Axis Communications: AXIS Q1659

by Benchmark

Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, has introduced AXIS Q1659 network camera, the first to combine professional-calibre photographic imaging technologies from Canon with its proven surveillance technology. The camera brings a new level of ultra high image quality for a fixed, wide-area surveillance camera, and leverages leading-edge image sensor and EF lens technologies for unmatched colour, contrast and detail, even in the most challenging lighting conditions.

‘This camera is truly the best of both worlds. AXIS Q1659 offers the world-class image quality Canon is known for with its professional photography technology and has been combined with Axis’ market leading network video surveillance technology,’ stated Fredrik Nilsson, VP, Americas, Axis Communications. ‘AXIS Q1659 delivers a high level of quality and detail and utilises VAPIX and ONVIF which leaves it open for broad VMS support.’

AXIS Q1659 delivers 20MP resolution at 8 frames per second, achieving unprecedented levels of detail for observing open spaces and across long distances. It features digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) imaging technology and offers a choice of seven different EF/EF-S lenses depending on individual user needs. Equipped with an EF lens mount, the camera enables easy lens changes.

AXIS Q1659 is supported by the industry’s largest base of video management software through the Axis Application Development Partner (ADP) program and AXIS Camera Station. Third-party video analytics applications can be installed on the camera via AXIS Camera Application Platform. ONVIF support allows for easy integration into existing video surveillance systems.

The new camera also offers the latest enhancement of Axis’ Zipstream technology, which offers even more storage and bandwidth savings in video surveillance applications without compromising on important image details. In addition, an SFP slot for optional fibre connectivity gives the ability to connect to the network over long distances.
