Axis Communications announces the release of a unique device that delivers state-of-the-art deep learning-powered object classification based on the fusion of two powerful technologies: video and radar. Ideal for accurate 24/7 detection and wide-area intrusion protection, it delivers improved scene intelligence combined with the forensic value of video.

AXIS Q1656-DLE Radar-Video Fusion Camera offers superior Q-line camera functionality and excellent image usability combined with a fully integrated radar. Using the radar, it can detect objects over wide areas regardless of visibility. It can then visualize the speed and distance of moving objects directly in the application view.

This smart device makes it possible to set up events triggered by suspicious behavior based on speed and classification – like running humans and slow-cruising cars. The radar can also be used separately to guide a standalone PTZ camera. Additionally, because radar “sees” in the dark, it’s also possible to set triggers to activate flood lights, IR, or façade lights only when needed saving effort and energy costs.

Key features include:

  • Two powerful technologies fused in one device
  • Increased scene intelligence
  • Accurate detection 24/7
  • Built-in cybersecurity features
  • Premium Axis Q-line camera functionality

Robust and weather-resistant, this powerful device offers built-in cybersecurity features to safeguard the system. With just one device to install, one cable drop, one IP address, and one video management software (VMS) license, it ensures lower installation and lifetime costs. Furthermore, thanks to a low false-notification rate, security personnel act only on real threats and they can handle more cameras simultaneously.

AXIS Q1656-DLE will be available through Axis distribution channels in December 2022.
