Axis ARTPEC-4 IP surveillance encoders/cameras

Friday, 17 February, 2012



Axis Communications has introduced ARTPEC-4, the latest version of its system-on-chip for network video products.

ARTPEC-4 is designed to offer video with lower noise and higher light sensitivity for sharper images of moving objects. Optimised for Axis branded video encoders and cameras, the chip is a key enabler of Axis’s unique Lightfinder technology, which allows cameras to ‘see’ clearly in dark and low light conditions. Lightfinder is included in the award-winning AXIS Q1602 network camera.

The chip features multichannel video ports on one chip with improved de-interlacing, enhanced HDTV image quality and video analytics performance in Axis’s network video cameras and video encoders, the company claims, further improving H.264 compression, supporting simultaneous H.264 and motion JPEG streams and enabling built-in multiple streaming for individually optimised video streams.

With a powerful CPU and a coprocessor for accelerating video analytics, ARTPEC-4 also boasts more processing power for intelligent video analysis. This is beneficial for analytics applications running on the Axis camera application platform for scalable, distributed analytics in video surveillance.
