“It is always a privilege to attend ISC West, and this year we look forward to showcasing a number of exciting new products and solutions,” said Fredrik Nilsson, VP, Americas, Axis Communications, in a prepared statement. “Building a smarter, more secure world–by providing all of our stakeholders with the solutions that they need to succeed–is our primary goal. We are eager for another opportunity to reach more people face-to-face while demonstrating some of the new security innovations that we’ll be releasing soon.”

Multidirectional camera coverage

Axis says the multidirectional, four-channel AXIS P3719-PLE Network Camera features Quad HD resolution and a 30 FPS framerate and is capable of providing 24/7, 360-degree coverage. This easy-to-install outdoor camera can be either recessed or corner mounted and comes with an integrated IP66/IP67-rated weather shield. Axis Lightfinder technology, WDR and 360-degree IR illumination ensure that AXIS P3719-PLE is able to capture images with exceptional sharpness and clarity regardless of lighting conditions. AXIS P3719-PLE incorporates four varifocal camera heads, allowing the camera to easily monitor four different directions, and is able to provide high-quality 360-degree overviews or a combination of overviews and detailed close-ups. 

Advancements in network audio

According to the firm, AXIS C8210 Network Audio Amplifier makes migration from traditional to network audio systems smart and easy by enabling any passive speaker to benefit from the same feature set as Axis network speakers. By pairing the AXIS C8210 with AXIS Audio Management Software, users can enjoy benefits that include flexible zoning, managing and monitoring all audio devices from a single interface and easy integration to systems like SIP, VoIP and camera systems. Additional product benefits include an amplifier with built-in equalizer, 15W power output for up to eight speakers, support for health monitoring, and an I/O and SD-card slot.

Heavy-duty IR capabilities

The firm says that in response to demand for more heavy-duty PTZ cameras with built-in IR illumination, it is launching the new AXIS Q6215-LE PTZ Network Camera. The camera comes with a half-inch sensor and combines high-quality imaging with fast pan, tilt and zoom functionalities. AXIS Q6215-LE features long-range OptimizedIR technology alongside IR LEDs capable of adjusting to the camera’s zoom, enabling superior video quality at up to 1,300 ft., even in low light or complete darkness. AXIS Q6215-LE features a robust design capable of withstanding difficult weather conditions, including wind speeds of up to 150 MPH, making it ideal for open-area surveillance such as airports, harbors and highways.

Multifunction door security

According to Axis, AXIS A8207-VE Network Video Door Station represents the evolution of the traditional door station, combining access control, two-way audio capabilities and a 6 MP security camera in a single device. The station also includes an integrated RFID reader for easy employee access and enables remote entrance control using a computer, phone or mobile device. AXIS A8207-VE reduces the number of devices needed at the door while supporting analytics including motion and sound-based detection, which can be used to trigger events including verbal greetings or recordings. Additional benefits include a built-in keypad for dialing and PIN verification, acoustic echo cancellation and noise reduction, and SIP, VAPIX and ONVIF compatibility. AXIS A8207-VE easily integrates with other systems and solutions, including video management, access control and VoIP communications.

These and other products and solutions will be showcased at ISC West in Axis’ booth #14051.
