axis_ISCAxis Communications designed a corner network camera. The AXIS Q8414-LVS features a stainless-steel anti-grip casing and is extremely impact resistant, supporting the IK10+ 50 joules rating as well as the IP66/NEMA 4X rating for water resistance. The 24/7 indoor surveillance camera is designed to provide high image quality both day and night with capabilities such as Lightfinder technology, which enables life-like colors in low-light conditions, and built-in invisible IR LED illuminator for video surveillance in complete darkness.

“High security environments like correctional facilities and psychiatric wards present unique security challenges and a growing need to prevent self-harm and conflict,” said Scott Dunn, director of business development, Axis Communications Inc. “Specifically designed to meet these needs, AXIS Q8414-LVS lacks ligature points, features an anti-grip design and is extremely vandal resistant. The camera delivers superior HDTV video in any lighting, day or night, for increased image usability.”

The new anti-ligature AXIS Q8414-LVS is ideal for video surveillance of small rooms in premises such as correctional facilities, interview rooms, psychiatric wards and medical observation rooms, as well as in elevators and stairwells. Thanks to a built-in microphone and the possibility to integrate the network camera into an alarm system via its I/O port, AXIS Q8414-LVS becomes part of the overall surveillance solution, an important tool to protect and secure the safety of people in high-security environments. In addition, privacy masks ensure restricted areas are not monitored for privacy reasons or to protect personnel.

Available in two colors, powder-coated white and brushed stainless-steel, the camera offers 1.3 megapixel or HDTV 720p video stream. It features P-Iris control for an optimal depth of field, resolution, image contrast and clarity. The horizontal angle of view up to 105 degrees covers the entire room without blind spots. Capabilities such as remote zoom and focus facilitate the optimization of the captured view during the installation.

Axis designed AXIS Q8414-LVS with as few cavities and holes as possible to make the camera easy to clean and to prevent prisoners and patients from lodging items in it.

It is supported by video management software through the Axis Application Development Partner Program and AXIS Camera Station. The cameras include support for AXIS Camera Companion, AXIS Camera Application Platform, AXIS Video Hosting System and ONVIF for easy camera system integration and for application developers to provide the camera with intelligent capabilities.
