Axis Q1659 raises the bar for image quality in video surveillance

Axis incorporate Canon's professional-level lens design into new IP cameraFollowing the acquisition of Axis by Canon back in 2015, the Q1659 launch reveals the first Axis IP camera to feature Canon’s professional photographic imaging technologies.

This innovative model will combine a high-performance image sensor, Canon EF/EF-S lenses and a host of advanced security features from Axis – offering high performance video surveillance with exceptional image quality.

Capable of delivering 20MP video at up to 8 frames per second, the Axis Q1659 will feature the latest in image sensor and EF lens technologies – allowing optimum contrast, true colour integrity and high levels of detail to be delivered in even the most challenging lighting conditions. This ultra-high image quality is helpful when monitoring over long distances and makes the unit ideal for use in large locations such as airports, stadiums, critical infrastructure and cities.

The Axis Q1659 features digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) imaging and is available with a choice of 7 different EF/EF-S lenses which use Canon’s EF lens mount for quick and easy lens changes, should viewing requirements ever change.

Best of both worlds

On top of its impressive imaging capabilities, the Axis Q1659 will also include a stack of handy Axis technologies such as their award-winning Zipstream technology which offers vast storage and bandwidth savings – without compromising on important image details. An integrated SFP slot will also be built in, offering optional fibre connectivity for long distance network connections.

In addition, ONVIF support allows the camera to be easily integrated into existing systems and a range of third-party applications can be installed via Axis Camera Application Platform (ACAP) to help increase levels of functionality.

Ultimately, by combining Axis and Canon technologies, the Q1659 looks to offer the ‘best of both worlds’; raising the bar on image quality with Canon’s professional-level lens design and Axis’ experience delivering everything required for a complete, flexible and reliable security system.

The Axis Q1659 is due to be available in the coming months and we are interested to see this high-performance model in action.
