HILLS hosted Axis’ new product sessions at its Lidcombe office during the week and a group of integrators and installers got a chance to see Axis’ latest and greatest. Hills’ Bill Barbagiannakos welcomed the visitors and introduced the Axis team. 

Along with a re-cap of things like the Axis horn speaker, door station, keypad, and Zipstream, there was a sneak preview of the latest Axis gear to be released at ISC West in a couple of weeks time. Publication of explicit details of these products is limited as a result, but according to Wai King Wong, some of the exciting new products coming include… a smaller form factor camera with wireless connectivity and key Axis technology – WDR Forensic Capture.

Of particular interest to the group at Lidcombe was a 1080p camera that handled intense backlight extremely well, while a powerful new PTZ also caught everyone’s eye. Another great-looking release was an affordable dome that packed all the company’s smart capabilities into a single housing – impressive.

At question time it was core capabilities like low light performance, bitrate using Zipstream and the Axis door station that received most attention. With 900 engineers, Axis has a high new product release rate. The gear in the pipeline for ISC West, as well as SecTech Roadshow in May, is going to get Hills and Axis plenty of attention over the next couple of months.♦
