December 2, 2008--Axis Communications' Q1755 Network Camera is designed for securing areas where greater image detail is required, such as airports, passport controls and casinos.

The AXIS Q1755 is built for HDTV 1080i or 720 resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio, and supports both H.264 and Motion JPEG in full frame rate. With day and night functionality and progressive output, this camera is designed to provide exceptional quality images even of fast moving objects in all lighting conditions. It features 10x optical zoom and 12x digital zoom paired with auto focus.

For optional storage of video, the camera has a built-in slot for an SD/SDHC memory card, making it possible to store days of recording without external equipment. Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af) supplies power to the cameras via the network.

The AXIS Q1755 includes video intelligence, such as enhanced video motion detection, audio detection, and detection of camera tampering (such as blocking or spray-painting). In addition, it incorporates a Gatekeeper functionality, which automatically zooms in when there is activity in the scene and then zooms out after a preset time interval. The camera offers an advanced suite of security and network management capabilities, including HTTPS encryption, IEEE 802.1X authentication, IPv4/IPv6 and Quality of Service.

"The HDTV performance of the AXIS Q1755, with crisp and clear images at full frame rate, fulfills the professional market's demands for greater image detail and true color representation," says Fredrik Nilsson, general manager of Axis Communications, Inc. "In addition, bandwidth and storage demands are considerably reduced by H.264 compression, maintaining true HDTV resolution at full frame rate."

This network camera will be available through Axis' distribution channels in January 2009 for the manufacturer's suggested price of $1,499.
