Axis Communications introduces new intelligent solutions with infrared illumination at ISC West
Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, today announced the release of several new cameras and the industry’s first modular sensor unit with built-in IR illumination. IR’s ability to allow cameras to ‘see in the dark’ is an additional benefit to video surveillance for many reasons, from allowing 24/7 surveillance without the need for additional lighting, to enabling ultra-discreet surveillance. Axis is delivering the benefits of IR to almost all indoor/outdoor surveillance system in the most cost-efficient way.
Axis’ OptimizedIR technology, is also featured in some of the new models. OptimizedIR is Axis’ smart, power-efficient and patented IR LED technology which uses light to enable an even illumination over the complete camera view.
“Surveillance under any light condition is a requirement in many applications,” said Fredrik Nilsson, VP, Americas, Axis Communications, Inc. “By adding optimized and discreet IR Illumination to this breadth of products, we’ve addressed customer feedback and extended our offering.”
