Axis Communications, the global leader in network video surveillance, today announced a strong addition to its Q-line of fixed thermal cameras, AXIS Q1941-E Thermal Network Camera. The affordable and bullet-style IP camera is designed for 24/7 detection in challenging conditions. The camera is outdoor-ready out-of-the-box and is ideal for perimeter protection of facilities where early detection of an intrusion attempt is critical.

"Thermal cameras are not only reliable for round-the-clock detection, but are also useful for verification, helping to distinguish between a real and false alarm,” said Fredrik Nilsson, General Manager, North America, Axis Communications Inc. “Thanks to its powerful processor, AXIS Q1941-E is highly capable of running video analytics via the AXIS Camera Application Platform (ACAP). Together with our ADP Partners, customers can find a tailored surveillance solution that meets their specific needs.”

AXIS Q1941-E offers 384x288 thermal resolution and outstanding image contrast for reliable detection and quick verification. Thanks to a selection of five different lens alternatives (7 mm, 13 mm, 19 mm, 35 mm and 60 mm) that optimize detection performance, customers can be sure the camera will meet their requirements. In addition, the following capabilities make AXIS Q1941-E the flagship for AXIS Q19 Series:

  • The camera can easily be integrated with other existing IP security equipment and with third party applications via the AXIS Camera Application Platform (ACAP).
  • Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) provides smooth live viewing even when the camera is mounted on an unstable surface, where vibration can be an issue.
  • Axis’ Zipstream technology analyzes and optimizes the video stream in real time to preserve interesting details and motion with full image quality and resolution, while compressing other areas, such as white walls or vegetation, harder. This significantly reduces the bandwidth and storage require
