Axis’ innovative Q6315-LE harnesses the power of the ARTPEC-7 chipset

Axis’ state-of-the-art ARTPEC-7 chipset continues to deliver industry-leading performance two years after its introduction. Unique to Axis, this is one of the only chips developed specifically for use in IP cameras.Axis Q6315-LE camera and ARTPEC-7 chipset

Thanks to the inclusion of the ARTPEC-7 chipset within Axis’ advanced model releases; we see IP cameras with increased levels of processing power and high-performance features that are able to work together simultaneously to provide a powerful surveillance solution. One of the cameras that takes advantage of this ground-breaking chipset is the new Axis Q6315-LE (01924-003) – the first model from Axis’ Q63 Series that we have seen so far.

Designed for use in demanding applications such as city surveillance, this powerful PTZ provides HD 1080p resolution, 31x optical zoom and long-range IR to capture detailed footage at a distance – 24 hours a day.
But how does the ARTPEC-7 really help to make this camera stand out? Below we discuss some of the powerful features included in the Q6315-LE that make use of, or are considerably enhanced by, Axis’ innovative chipset.

Reliable object tracking and identification

Equipped with Autotracking 2 technology, the Q6315-LE can detect an object as it moves within the field of view, zoom in and follow it around a defined area. This is enhanced further by Axis’ Object Analytics which is able to classify humans and vehicles, allowing users to set up several simultaneous tailored scenarios based on the behaviour of different objects. With greater processing power, the ARTPEC-7 chipset enables the camera to perform these tasks rapidly – helping to reduce chances of missing any critical footage and improving surveillance efficiency.
Making great use of the camera’s PTZ functionality, Autotracking 2 and Axis Object analytics are ideal for situations in which potentially suspicious activity needs to be identified and monitored swiftly. Areas such as city centres, amusement parks and other locations subject to high traffic would benefit greatly from this feature, helping operators to keep a close eye on areas of interest and implement event triggers ahead of time.

Clear imaging in demanding conditions

Axis’ Sharpdome technology and laser focus are another set of innovative features on the Q6325-LE. Sharpdome allows the entire dome structure to rotate, providing optimal views in all pan and tilt positions. Sharpdome also incorporates Axis’ Speed Dry functionality to vibrate the dome at a high speed, shaking off droplets of water and improving the sharpness of footage in wet conditions. Laser focus also improves image capture by using a built-in laser to measure the distance between the camera and an object of interest to allow the camera to focus much faster and more accurately, resulting in clear footage at all times.
These technologies allow the camera to operate in more challenging conditions where the camera needs to dynamically track an object in inclement weather whilst retaining a clear view. Applications such as ports would benefit from sharpdome and laser focus due to exposed conditions and the likelihood of objects consistently moving around the viewing area.

Long-range views in lowlight

The camera features integrated high-power IR LEDs with an impressive range of up to 300m. Alongside this, Axis’ OptimisedIR is also supported, which adjusts the intensity of the IR LED as the camera zooms in and out, ensuring the entire viewing area is sufficiently illuminated.
This feature is particularly useful in large areas prone to poor lighting or that require night-time monitoring, such as open warehouses or zoos. OptimisedIR allows clear vision, even when lighting is insufficient, or an area is in near darkness.

Optimised network security

One of the ARTPEC-7’s crowning glories is its cybersecurity enhancements. The Axis Q6315-LE hosts a variety of security features that help to keep the device protected against privacy breaches. Only authorised software and updates are accepted onto the system, blocking access for potential malicious firmware.

John Paulsson, Chief Technology Officer at Axis said:

“We have complete control over every single transistor, which is very good from a trust and cybersecurity perspective. Plus, unlike other chips, it’s not a generic all-purpose design. Rather, it’s 100% optimized for creating high-quality Axis network video solutions.”

The Secure Boot functionality acts as a gatekeeper, blocking unauthorised firmware to keep the camera running smoothly and safely. This feature also allows users to restore the camera back to its default factory state, ensuring there is no malware stored onto the device.

These days cybersecurity has become a priority for users when selecting new cameras to integrate into their network security systems. The advanced security features included with this PTZ camera give users peace of mind knowing that the camera offers protection from security threats and malware which could potentially incapacitate their network and compromise important information.

Feature-packed surveillance thanks to ARTPEC-7

The Axis Q6315-LE makes great use of its cutting-edge chipset by offering a whole range of analytics, imaging, and security enhancements to expand the camera’s usability. The ARTPEC-7 chipset’s increased processing power is the key to many of Axis cameras’ unique capabilities and improvements in the last two years. We are excited to see what comes next!
