Axis Communications, the global leader in the network video market1 will be introducing its HDTV network camera on 25th March at ISEC, Ireland. Axis will join its distribution partner Anixter, a leading supplier of supply chain services and products used to connect voice, video and data security systems, on the first day of the event to introduce the AXIS Q1755 Network Camera to the Irish security market. Axis will also be on hand to demonstrate the camera’s advanced suite of security and network management capabilities.

The HDTV network camera offers true HDTV performance in compliance with the SMPTE standard in resolution, colour representation and frame rate. When connected to an HDTV monitor, the camera offers the perfect solution for the security of areas where greater image detail is required, such as airports, passport controls and casinos.

AXIS Q1755 delivers HDTV 1080i or 720 resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio and supports both H.264 and Motion JPEG in full frame rate. With day and night functionality and progressive output, this camera provides exceptional quality images, even of fast moving objects in all lighting conditions and without any motion blur. 10x optical zoom and 12x digital zoom paired with auto focus deliver the desired field of view in perfect focus.

A representative of Axis Communications will be with Anixter at ISEC on Wednesday 25th March. Commenting on the show, Phil Doyle, Managing Director for the UK & Ireland, said: “ISEC offers us the ideal opportunity to introduce the AXIS Q1755 Network Camera and our partnership with Anixter to the Irish security market.

“The HDTV performance of this network camera fulfills the professional market’s demands for greater image detail and true color representation. In addition, bandwidth and storage demands are considerably reduced by H.264 compression, maintaining true HDTV resolution at full frame rate.”

Patrick South, regional sales manager (Ireland), Anixter said: “We are delighted that our partner Axis Communications can join us at this year’s show and demonstrate this best-of-breed HDTV network camera. It is clear that IP Surveillance is quickly moving from a ‘nice-to-have’ to a ‘must have’ and Anixter, in partnership with Axis Communications is ideally positioned in terms of product knowledge and technical expertise to enable organizations to make the transition.”

Ireland’s only dedicated security event, ISEC will take place between 25th – 26th March 2009 in Dublin, Ireland at the CityWest Hotel. For more information visit: http://www.isec.ie
