New Delhi, India, November 14, 2014: Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, announces its first corner-mount fixed network camera. The new AXIS Q8414-LVS features a stainless steel anti-grip casing and is extremely impact resistant, supporting the IK10+ 50joules rating as well as the IP66/NEMA 4X rating for water resistance. The 24/7 indoor surveillance camera provides superb image quality both during day and night with capabilities like Lightfinder technology, which enables life-like colors in low-light conditions, and built-in invisible IR LED illuminator for video surveillance in complete darkness.
“In correctional facilities as well as in psychiatric wards, there is an increasing need to prevent self-harm and avoid internal conflicts among the residents,” says Erik Frännlid, Axis’ Director of Product Management. “We have developed AXIS Q8414-LVS keeping in mind that a surveillance camera should lack ligature points and present an anti-grip design. On top of these features, it should also offer superb video quality during day and night and be extremely vandal resistant.”
The new AXIS Q8414-LVS is ideal for video surveillance of small rooms in premises like correctional facilities, interview rooms, psychiatric wards, and medical observation rooms as well as elevators and stairwells. Thanks to a built-in microphone and the possibility to integrate the network camera into an alarm system via its I/O port, AXIS Q8414-LVS becomes part of the overall surveillance solution, an important tool to protect and secure the safety of the people in high security environments. In addition, privacy masks assure that restricted areas are not monitored for privacy reasons or to protect the personnel.
Available in two color versions, powder coated white (AXIS Q8414-LVS White) and brushed stainless steel (AXIS Q8414-LVS Metal), the corner-mount network camera offers 1.3 Megapixel or HDTV 720p video stream. It features P-Iris control for an optimal depth of field, resolution, image contrast and clarity. The horizontal angle of view up to 105° covers the entire room without blind spots. Capabilities such as remote zoom and focus facilitate the optimization of the captured view during the installation.
AXIS Q8414-LVS features a unique design that has been developed to be perceived softer and less provocative than that of other security installations in correctional facilities and psychiatric wards. Working closely with prison and health authorities in several countries as well as system integrators and installers, Axis designed AXIS Q8414-LVS to feature as few cavities and holes as possible so prisoners and patients cannot stuff anything inside them and the camera is easy to clean.
AXIS Q8414-LVS Network 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 cameras include 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 Q8414-LVS is planned to be available in December 2014 (at a MSRP of $ 1299) through Axis distribution channels.
