AXIS Q61-E Network Camera Series wins prestigious Good Design Award 2015

2 Oct 2015

Axis Communications has received recognition from the Japanese Institute of Design Promotion for its AXIS Q61-E PTZ Dome Network Camera Series. The cameras feature a unique dome geometry allowing operators to identify objects as much as 20° above the horizon.

Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, has been honoured with the prestigious Good Design Award 2015 for its AXIS Q61-E PTZ Dome Network Camera Series. The Good Design Award, also known as G Mark Award, from the Japanese Institute of Design Promotion is a mark of excellence and gives recognition to innovative product design. It dates back to 1957 as the sole comprehensive design evaluation and commendation system in Japan.

The AXIS Q61-E Series features a unique design concept which resulted from listening to customers and partners. To better blend in with their environment when mounted, the cameras are easily repaintable and 45% smaller than previous generations. Their unique dome geometry enables operators to identify objects above the camera horizon and the Speed Dry function causes the cameras to vibrate thereby effectively shaking off water drops in rainy weather.

“With the AXIS Q61-E Series we have broken with conventional designs and introduced an entirely new dome geometry offering effective video surveillance of objects located above the camera horizon,” says Erik Frännlid, Director of Product Management, Axis Communications. “We also took a look at nature and a dog shaking off water inspired our Speed Dry function that quickly removes water drops from the dome glass. This prestigious design award win underlines our commitment to continuously innovate as we strive to provide our customers with smarter solutions.”

The AXIS Q61-E Series features 30x optical zoom with up to HDTV 1080p resolution, Lightfinder technology and Wide Dynamic Range to handle difficult lighting conditions and electronic image stabilisation for smoother video in windy conditions. A slanted camera design deflects water drops and a non-stick heated silicone ring prevents ice formation to ensure reliable operation in all weather conditions. The AXIS Q61-E Series cameras withstand extreme climate changes thanks to Arctic Temperature Control that allows the cameras to function at -50 °C (-58 °F). In addition, the cameras support automatic defog, which, when activated, automatically detects fog in the scene and digitally filters it out of view to provide clearer video.

The AXIS Q61-E Series was also awarded with the SSA Award 2015 in the category CCTV at the Safety and Security Show last week in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, due to its innovative way to manage different lighting conditions as well as challenging weather conditions.
