Video Streaming - Many Axis network video products offer users the option of more than one video compression format. The video compression standards include Motion JPEG, MPEG-4 Part 2 and H.264 (also known as MPEG-4 Part 10/AVC). H.264 is the latest compression standard that offers the most efficient format for compressing video, enabling great savings in bandwidth and storage without compromising image quality.
The Axis Media Control (AMC) includes both an MPEG-4 and an H.264 decoder, which makes viewing video streams and integration into applications easy. Furthermore, Axis’ multicasting support enables an unlimited number of viewers without sacrificing network system performance.
Lightfinder Technology - A day and night network camera can deliver excellent colour images during the day. As night falls and light fades, the camera can automatically switch to night mode to make use of near infrared (IR) light to continue to deliver video. However, the images produced in low light condition are typically in black and white.
But with the Lightfinder technology Axis has mastered the art of low light video. This is the result of a careful choice of CMOS sensor with the appropriate lens, together with the elaboration of the image data coming from the combination of sensor and lens. The fusion of these factors – sensor, lens, in-house chip development and knowledge in image processing – provides the outstanding performance of this technology.
A network camera incorporating Lightfinder technology will thus offer better resolution and more lifelike colours in low-light conditions than any analogue camera on the market. Furthermore, these advantages come without compromising other important features of network cameras, such as progressive scan and video intelligence analysis.
Thermal Imaging - Thermal cameras detect radiation in the infrared (IR) spectrum, which is outside the range of visible light and near-infrared light. Ordinary visible light has wavelengths of 0.4-0.7 µm. This is what the human eye can see, and also what standard, non-day/night cameras can detect and display. Light at this part of the spectrum requires a radiation source, e.g. the sun or a lamp. Thermal radiation is emitted at wavelengths of 3-1000 µm. Thermal radiation does not require a separate light source since the radiation comes from every object that has a temperature above 0 degrees Kelvin. That means that even very cold objects such as ice emit thermal radiation. The hotter the object is the more thermal radiation it emits. In other words, the greater the temperature differences in a scene, the clearer the thermal image will be.
