The bullet-style Q1765-LE network camera from Axis Communications offers full HD image quality, 18x optical zoom and built-in IR illumination, making it suitable for around-the-clock surveillance installations. The company says this outdoor-ready network camera is designed for monitoring entrances, exits and perimeter, and for pole mounting for surveillance of parking lots or general city surveillance purposes and/or traffic junctions, where it covers great distances providing both wide overviews as well as detailed images for identification purposes.

With built-in infra-red LEDs, Q1765-LE is a fixed camera for outdoor surveillance that is also specifically designed for use in harsh environments and tough climates, says Axis. The camera's 18x motorized optical zoom covers long distances with enhanced autofocus capability. In addition, Axis says its integrated Corridor Format technology allows for effective monitoring of vertical scenes such as long streets or long perimeters. The Q1765-LE incorporates built-in highly efficient automatically adaptive infra-red LEDs (IR LEDs) that allow the camera to cover at least 15 meter (50 ft.) in the widest field of view and up to 40 meter (130 ft.) in full tele view. The built-in IR illumination is especially beneficial for installations with the need for around-the-clock surveillance without artificial lighting.

The compact Axis Q1765-LE is lightweight yet tough. The camera is IP66/NEMA4X rated, making it resistant to water and dust. The Arctic Temperature Control capability allows reliable start-up in any temperatures from -40 °C to 50 °C (-40 °F to 122°F), making the Q1765-LE perfect for installations in places with challenging weather.

The Axis Q1765-LE provides full HD (HDTV 1080p) image quality both day and night. Installation and operation are made easy with Power over Ethernet (IEE 802.3af) and 8-28 V DC, 20-24 V AC power. Convenient installation and mounting with optional accessories such as the Axis T98A17-VE surveillance cabinet for both coax and fiber and the Axis T91A47 pole mount. A memory card slot is included for storing recordings locally. Two-way audio is useful when a deterring effect is required. The camera can easily be integrated with existing security systems, says Axis.

The camera also includes support for 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. The Axis Q1765-LE network camera is expected to be available in Q4 2013 through Axis distribution channels.
