Axis Communications plans to showcase its latest video, audio, analytics, end-to-end, and other solutions at GSX 2023, with special attention to its new solutions which include:
A compact, lightweight body-worn camera
The AXIS W110 Body Worn Camera is a lighter, friendlier wearable camera specially designed to protect staff and reduce assaults in organizations in sectors like retail, healthcare, and transportation. With the latest addition, Axis addresses the demand for a wearable camera designed for use cases outside law enforcement.
AXIS W110 Body Worn Camera deters, protects, and documents. Wearers and the public will feel they're not alone, which contributes to a sense of well-being and a more peaceful workplace. AXIS W110 Body Worn Camera also offers excellent image and audio quality with exceedingly sharp images and clear audio for forensic usability.
Key features include:
- Compact form factor (85g, 75*55*19 mm)
- Lightweight with flexible mounting options
- Open standards for easy integration with your own systems
- Easy to find and retrieve footage
- End-to-end encryption
Based on open standards, AXIS W110 Body Worn Camera offers easy integration with AXIS Camera Station as well as third-party VMSs. You can store as much footage as you like without compromising image quality and it’s easy to find and retrieve footage. The system also features end-to-end encryption.
*AXIS W110 Body Worn Camera will be available through Axis distribution channels in Q4 2023.
Ability to automatically activate body worn cameras in stressful situations
The AXIS W400 Body Worn Activation Kit further expands the Axis wearables product portfolio. AXIS W400 Body Worn Activation Kit automatically activates recording by all body worn cameras in the same system when a lightbar or siren is activated, or a panic button is pressed.
In stressful situations, there is always a risk that wearers of body worn cameras might forget to activate recording. AXIS W400 removes this risk, ensuring that footage is always recorded by one or more cameras during an escalated situation thus keeping police departments in compliance with regulations and avoiding liability. When AXIS W400 is integrated into a police car, the system can be automatically triggered when the lightbar or siren is activated. The system can also be connected to a panic button, for example in a retail environment, to activate recordings automatically.
Key features include:
- Automatic recording activation
- Triggered by I/O
- Uses Bluetooth Beacons
*AXIS W400 Body Worn Activation Kit will be available through Axis distribution channels in Q4 2023.
Network-based 60GHz radar for area & traffic monitoring 24/7
The AXIS D2210-VE Security Radar is a high-frequency radar device that can accurately detect, classify, and track humans and vehicles. This powerful device uses advanced radar technology, so it doesn’t depend on visibility to detect and track objects ensuring energy cost savings.
AXIS D2210-VE Security Radar offers a 95° field of view and can deliver the position of an object for accurate detection 24/7 in various weather and light conditions. It can detect humans at up to 60 m (200 feet) and vehicles up to 90 m (295 feet). Additionally, with road monitoring profile enabled, the detection range for vehicles increases up to 150 m (492 feet). This radar can also be used to trigger events and gather more reliable traffic statistics 24/7. In addition, AXIS Speed Monitor, available as a free download, can efficiently gather actionable data about the monitored road.
This compact, network-based device can be used stand-alone for non-visual monitoring. Furthermore, with smart coexistence functionality, it’s possible to combine up to eight AXIS D2210-VE Security Radars in close proximity. Additionally, it is possible to expand the installation with up to six AXIS D2110-VE Security Radars and customize the detection area depending on the needs. It should also be noted that radar waves from Axis radar devices are harmless—even with continuous exposure humans can get close to them without any risks.
Key features include:
- Accurately detect, classify, and track objects
- Monitor vehicle speeds up to 200 km/h (125 mph)
- Easily connect with PoE-out and edge-to-edge
- Compact design with a 95° field of view
- Integrated dynamic LED strip
AXIS D2210-VE can be wrapped in colored, non-metallic, non-carbon-based foil to blend seamlessly into various environments or, if desired, to stand out. An integrated dynamic LED strip can be used to warn or notify, or it can be switched off for more discrete monitoring. Edge-to-edge technology makes it possible to connect AXIS D2210-VE to existing installations without an additional license, reducing costs and installation time. Furthermore, PoE-out can power an additional device without an extra cable drop.
*AXIS D2210-VE Security Radar will be available through Axis distribution channels in end-September 2023.
