Axis Communications has launched the AXIS Q6215-LE PTZ Network Camera in South Africa to meet the increasing demand for more heavy-duty PTZ cameras with built-in IR (infrared) illumination.

"This camera is ideal for open area surveillance such as airports, harbours and highways, and its robust design can withstand the toughest weather conditions, including wind speeds up to 245km/h (150mph)," says Justin Ludik, Business Development Manager: CI & End User from Axis Communications SA.

This new model comes with a half-inch sensor and combines great image quality with fast pan, tilt and zoom functionality.

In addition, the camera features long-range OptimizedIR with IR-LEDs that adjust to the camera's zoom and can deliver superior videos in low light or complete darkness of up to 400m (1 300ft).

Key features include:

* OptimizedIR 400m (1 300ft);
* Half-inch sensor for high light sensitivity and dynamic;
* Compliant with MIL-STD-810G and NEMA TS-2;
* HDTV 1 080p resolution, WDR, Lightfinder and 30x optical zoom; and
* AXIS Guard Suite analytics included.

The camera's flexible design allows it to be mounted facing up or down, directly to a surface or with a wall or pole mount. Additionally, it includes a wiper for removal of excess water, and is compliant with IP66, IP68, IK10 and NEMA 4X.
