Axis Communications is the first company on the market to offer customers full-featured thermal network cameras for surveillance. The new network cameras use thermal imaging, which allows users to detect people and incidents with great reliability even in complete darkness and other difficult conditions.

Up until now, there have been no such cameras available on the market, and existing analog thermal cameras have typically been designed for high-end installations and are associated with a high price and a large degree of customization.

”Today’s launch provides our customers with cost-efficient, easy-to-install thermal network cameras for professional installations and will promote safety and security in critical areas such as public places, industries, railways, ports and roads. We see a great potential for these new cameras and we are proud to be able to broaden our portfolio and thereby contribute to strengthening our customers’ security systems”, says Ray Mauritsson, President, Axis Communications.

With Axis’ strong distribution network, consisting of more than 27,000 partners worldwide, thermal cameras will now be accessible to whole new groups of users. Axis thermal network cameras mesh perfectly with any network video system and can be used in many surveillance systems in a broad range of customers segments such as government, transportation, city surveillance and education.

“The thermal network cameras’ features, combined with the usual benefits of Axis’ network cameras such as intelligent video capabilities, ease of installation, and integration with all leading video management systems, will help keep our customers’ security installations one step ahead”, says Ray Mauritsson.

The thermal network cameras create images based on the heat that always radiates from any object, vehicle or person. This gives thermal cameras the power to see through complete darkness and deliver images that allow operators to detect and act on suspicious activity. Thermal cameras can also handle many difficult weather conditions better than conventional cameras, e.g. allowing operators to see through haze, dust, and smoke.
