AXIS has released the Q6000-E network camera, a network camera with a 360-degree overview provided by four 2 megapixel camera heads, that when integrated with AXIS Q60-E simultaneously offers high detail optical zoom on areas of interest.  

With a single click, operators can optically zoom in on details of interest with high precision while at the same time being able to maintain an overview of large areas of up to 20,000 square metres (215,000 sq. ft.) – about the size of 4 football fields. 

This makes the AXIS Q6000-E ideal for city surveillance applications such as monitoring of public squares and parking lots, as well as food courts in shopping malls and other open areas.

“The AXIS Q6000-E addresses the need for a simple way to monitor a wide area and, simultaneously, be able to optical zoom in on details,” says Wai King Wong, country manager, Oceania, Axis Communications. 

“The seamless integration with AXIS Q60-E Series of outdoor PTZ cameras provides a smart, innovative and space-efficient solution offering new and unique video surveillance possibilities.”

The use of 2 screens gives a full 360° overview from AXIS Q6000-E, and a zoomed-in view from AXIS Q60-E, providing operators with a high level of detail while simultaneously being able to maintain an overview of the entire monitored area.   

AXIS Q6000-E provides multiple, individually configurable video streams in H.264 compression to greatly optimize bandwidth and storage without compromising image quality. Motion JPEG is also supported for increased flexibility.

There’s no need for any mounting brackets or extra equipment as AXIS Q6000-E uses the same brackets and network cable as the AXIS Q60-E, minimizing time and cost of installation. Furthermore, AXIS Q6000-E is supplied with Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) through AXIS Q60-E, eliminating the need for power cables.
