AXIS Q6155-E PTZ Dome Network Camera features a built-in laser that measures the distance between the camera and the object of interest. This allows the camera to focus much faster and with greater accuracy, capturing clear images.

AXIS Q6155-E is the first PTZ dome network camera to feature laser focus technology, offering faster and more precise autofocus even in the most demanding lighting conditions.
Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, introduces AXIS Q6155-E PTZ Dome Network Camera with laser focus, offering much faster and more accurate autofocus even in the most challenging lighting conditions. The new laser focus technology combined with the high image quality that AXIS Q6155-E offers, is valuable in situations when people or objects need to be identified quickly and precisely.

“Autofocus is one of the biggest challenges for conventional pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras today,” said Fredrik Nilsson, VP, Americas, Axis Communications, Inc. “With the release of AXIS Q6155-E we were able to address the challenge and also include features that users will find beneficial in many different use cases.

AXIS Q6155-E features Sharpdome, a technology which allows for monitoring of objects as much as 20° above the camera horizon. The camera offers HDTV 1080p resolution and 30x optical zoom.
This high end camera brings sharp images even when weather or lighting conditions are challenging due to its laser focus, a new and improved sensor, Axis’ Lightfinder technology and Axis’ Speed Dry function. This camera also has Axis’ Zipstream technology which lowers bandwidth and storage requirements while keeping necessary forensic details.

AXIS Q6155-E is ideal for city and perimeter surveillance, critical infrastructure, transportation, education, industrial and government installations. Its sleek design, compact size and re-paintable casing allows the camera to blend in with its surroundings. It offers quick and precise PTZ and high scene fidelity at all angles of view.

AXIS Q6155-E 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 via AXIS Camera Application Platform. ONVIF support allows for easy integration into existing video surveillance systems.

AXIS Q6155-E is planned to be available in Q4 2016 through Axis’ standard distribution channels at the suggested retail price of $3,199.
