Axis has launched a new generation of positioning cameras, giving operators faster and more accurate pan and tilt capabilities to monitor large-scale sites, perimeters and borders in real-time and are able to respond instantly to security alerts and incidents. The new range of positioning cameras enables surveillance across vast sites with fewer cameras, with the potential for 360-degree unobstructed field of view and at all times, and 135-degree field of view from ground to sky.
The new generation thermal, visual PTZ and bispectral PTZ positioning cameras enable rapid identification and incident response at large-scale sites.
“At their core, the needs of many of our customers can be distilled to the same thing: the need to rapidly identify and respond to incidents and breaches along perimeters and of course within their site. Our job is to empower them to do theirs, and our new range of cameras does just that,” commented Michael Chen, Global Product Manager at Axis Communications. “The sites that require monitoring can be vast – many thousands of hectares with perimeters hundreds of kilometres in length – and to give a comprehensive field of view using static cameras can be unfeasible. Pan and tilt capabilities are therefore essential, and our new range of positioning cameras takes these and other capabilities to a new level of performance.”
Features in the new positioning cameras include:
- High speed and jerk-free PTZ movements with continuous pan
- Built-in electronic image stabilisation (EIS), helping against vibration caused by an unstable mounting surface or a wind-sensitive mast.
- SFP slot for easy cable management, and quick and effective installation for fiber-optic connection over long distances
- Powerful positioning capabilities even at high wind and wide temperature range
- Flexible mounting options on columns directly, or against walls and poles with robust accessories
The new range includes thermal positioning cameras, visual PTZ positioning cameras and bispectral PTZ positioning cameras that combines both visual and thermal images.
