Video with exceptional sharpness in demanding light conditions

The AXIS Q1604 Network Camera enables clear identification of both people and objects, even in highly variable lighting conditions. It is perfect for monitoring entrances and buildings with large windows e.g. airports and train stations.

Dynamic capture capabilities

The camera's Wide Dynamic Range with dynamic capture works by acquiring several images with different exposure times. The advanced image processing results in video with exceptional clarity and sharpness.

Without WDR - dynamic capture

AXIS Q1604 can handle complex scenes such as when light comes through a window creating both dark and bright zones. No part of the image turns out too dark or too bright.

Compliance with standards for HDTV

The camera delivers progressive scan image quality at 1MP or HDTV 720p in compliance with the SMPTE standard in resolution. It can generate multiple, individually configurable H.264 and Motion JPEG video streams simultaneously.

Easy installation with remote back focus

The focus assistant indicates when the image is in focus by the flashing front LED of the camera. Having performed rough focusing at the lens, the remote back focus capability of the AXIS Q1604 is conveniently used for fine tuning focus.

The unique pixel counter ensures that the viewing angle is optimized for the monitored area and required pixel resolution. It allows the installer to easily verify that the camera installation fulfils regulatory or specific customer requirements on pixel resolution, e.g. the face of persons passing a doorway monitored by the camera.

AXIS Q1604 Network Camera using Wide Dynamic Range with dynamic capture

AXIS Q1604 Network Camera offers ideal solutions for surveillance in highly variable lighting conditions, for instance when light comes through a glass window or entrance creating both dark and bright zones. In these demanding scenarios, AXIS Q1604 allows the user to easily and clearly identify both people and objects. See snapshot comparisons of AXIS Q1604 vs. a camera without Wide Dynamic Range.
