A video analytics powerhouse
AXIS Q1942-E PT Mount’s powerful processor lets you add the strength of the market’s widest selection of video analytics solutions to your surveillance solution. For example, video analytics applications from Axis and our partners support swift and appropriate response to detected events by analyzing them, automatically dismissing non-threatening ones and instantly notifying security staff of potentially critical situations. Your staff can then view sharp, detailed footage to determine the precise nature of the threat – and act accordingly.
AXIS Q1942-E Thermal Network Camera with Automatic Gain Control
Thermal camera without Automatic Gain Control
Thermal IP cameras are a powerful tool in combination with video analytics to detect intruders or other unwanted behavior in the area of interest. In order to have a reliable and efficient surveillance system, the primary object needs to be visible. Sometimes it can be hard to filter it out if the background changes a lot, for example if large cold/hot objects are moving in the scene. Thanks to the enhanced automatic gain control in AXIS Q1942-E PT Mount, the background is stable and remains almost intact, reducing the risk for false alarms. The effect of hot objects in the background is minimized, helping to improve detection. In addition, AXIS Q1942-E PT Mount preserves more image details and compensates those areas that might be overexposed. Overall, the thermal network camera offers better detection to achieve great performance of the video analytics.
Low bandwidth and storage
AXIS Q1942-E PT Mount is equipped with Axis Zipstream technology, which reduces storage and bandwidth requirements, while capturing important details in full image quality. It does this by compressing less significant areas more than areas of interest. In other words, areas devoid of people or movement are compressed more. This can be particularly relevant to applications where thermal IP cameras are likely to be used, since these are often applications in areas where access is highly restricted. Moreover, the Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) helps the camera to provide a smooth live viewing when it is mounted on instable places and vibration can be perceived as an issue.
