AXIS Q1635 Network Camera offers exceptional image quality, with less noise and motion blur, making it Axis’ most light sensitive 1080p HDTV network camera to date.
CHELMSFORD, Mass. – December 10, 2014 – Axis Communications, the global leader in network video surveillance, introduces a new fixed network camera with a 1/2 inch sensor, designed for city surveillance applications. Thanks to its large sensor and the supplied lens, AXIS Q1635 is Axis’ most light sensitive 1080p HDTV network camera to date. Featuring improved near infrared (IR) sensitivity, in a range where the human eye cannot see, the camera delivers extremely high-quality black and white images in situations with very little or diminishing visible light – delivering video with less motion blur and low bandwidth consumption.

The camera’s advanced features for optimizing image quality also include Wide Dynamic Range - Forensic Capture, Axis Lightfinder technology, electronic image stabilization, shock detection and defogging, as well as 60 frames per second in HDTV 1080p resolution.

“Many surveillance applications require high quality images that enable the identification of people and objects even in highly variable and challenging lighting conditions,” said Scott Dunn, director of business development, Axis Communications, Inc. “AXIS Q1635 maintains extremely high image quality by seamlessly transitioning in complex light scenarios from WDR to Lightfinder, making it ideal for monitoring critical infrastructure sites, banks and public places such as squares, parks, streets and alleys.”

Thanks to Wide Dynamic Range - Forensic Capture, the new camera provides a high level of detail, visible in both dark and bright areas. The camera is enabled to seamlessly transition between WDR and Lightfinder mode, which further optimizes image quality. AXIS Q1635 is equipped with all the features of AXIS Q1615 with an additional defog functionality to further improve image quality in tough weather conditions.

AXIS Q1635 camera is supported by the industry’s largest base of video management software through the Axis Application Development Partner Program, and AXIS Camera Station. The camera includes support for AXIS Camera Companion, AXIS Camera Application Platform, AXIS Video Hosting System and ONVIF for easy camera system integration and for application developers to provide the camera with intelligent capabilities.

AXIS Q1635 is planned to be available through Axis’ standard distribution channels in January 2015 for the suggested retail price of $1,449 and $1,249 for the model without a lens.
