Axis new camera with Canon imaging expertise

Lund, Sweden

The new Axis Q1659 network camera, is the first Axis camera to combine professional-calibre photographic imaging technologies from Canon with Axis' proven security offering. The camera brings a new level of ultra-high image quality for a fixed, wide-area surveillance camera, and leverages leading-edge image sensor and EF lens technologies for effective colour, contrast and detail even in the most challenging lighting conditions.

“This camera is truly a best of both worlds approach: The world-class image quality Canon is known for with its professional-level photography technology and Axis’ market-leading security systems that deliver everything required for a complete, flexible and easy-to-manage installation. In addition to the extreme level of quality and detail, Axis Q1659 can, thanks to its broad VMS support, be quickly integrated with existing security environments,” says Olof Leidecker, Global Product Manager at Axis.

The Axis Q1659 delivers 20MP resolution at 8 frames per second (fps), achieving unprecedented levels of detail for observing open spaces and across long distances. It features digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) imaging technology and offers a choice of 7 different EF/EF-S lenses depending on individual user needs. Equipped with an EF lens mount, the camera enables easy lens changes.

The new camera also offers the latest enhancement of Axis’ Zipstream technology, which offers even more storage and bandwidth savings in video surveillance applications without compromising on important image details. In addition, an SFP slot for optional fibre connectivity gives the ability to connect to the network over long distances.

The company states that the Axis Q1659 is planned to be available in Q1 2017.
