AXIS Q1921/-E Thermal Network Cameras are a perfect complement to any network video system
that needs to secure an area 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The cameras use thermal imaging,
which allows users to detect people, objects and incidents in complete darkness and difficult conditions such as smoke, haze, dust and light fog.
AXIS Q1921 is intended for indoor environments, while
AXIS Q1921-E is an out-of-the-box, outdoor-ready
model with a built-in window heater that is designed to
withstand harsh weather conditions.
A resolution of 384x288 and a range of lenses make it
possible to optimize detection performance to meet
most application requirements. Advanced software
processing and a frame rate of up to 30 fps will further
improve the thermal image quality.
Since thermal cameras are immune to problems with
light conditions and normal shadows, they can achieve
higher accuracy than conventional cameras in most
intelligent video applications.
AXIS Q1921/-E cameras offer motion detection, audio
detection, and detection of tampering attempts.
The cameras also provide capacity for third-party
analytics modules, including support for AXIS Camera
Application Platform. AXIS Q1921/-E cameras support
ONVIF for interoperability between network video
products.
Installation is made easy and cost effective with Power
over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af). AXIS Q1921/-E cameras
support H.264 video compression, which reduces bandwidth usage and storage needs. The cameras provide
multiple, individually configurable video streams in
H.264 and Motion JPEG.
