LUND, Sweden, September 14, 2010 - Axis Communications today introduces AXIS Q1921 and AXIS Q1921-E Thermal
Network Cameras. The enhanced resolution and the large variety of lens
alternatives ensure improved image quality and detection range. The new
cameras are ideal for cost efficient 24/7 area or perimeter surveillance of
all security applications such as roads, tunnels and airports.

"After the successful introduction of our first thermal network cameras
AXIS Q1910/-E earlier this year, we are now launching the new AXIS Q1921/-E
models. Their improved detection range, wide area coverage and the
flexibility provided by lens alternatives are features that are strongly
requested from our customers", says Johan Paulsson, Chief Technology Officer,
Axis Communications. "AXIS Q1921/-E allows the customer to implement
affordable and flexible area and perimeter detection that meets the
requirements of most applications. AXIS Q1921 and AXIS Q1921-E mesh perfectly
with any network video system, delivering all the benefits that customers
have learned to expect from network cameras." says Johan Paulsson.

Thermal cameras create images based on the heat that always radiates from
any object, vehicle or person. This gives thermal cameras the power to see
through complete darkness and deliver images that allow operators to detect
and act on suspicious activity. Thermal cameras can also handle many
difficult weather conditions better than conventional cameras, e.g. allowing
operators to see through haze, dust and smoke.

AXIS Q1921 is designed for indoor surveillance, while AXIS Q1921-E is an
IP66-rated, outdoor-ready camera. The four available lens alternatives 10 mm,
19 mm, 35 mm and 60 mm; the 384×288 resolution and the advanced image
processor further improve effective area and perimeter surveillance. The
cameras allow detection of people at a distance ranging from up to 200 m/220
yd. with a 55degrees field of view, and up to 1200 m/1300 yd. with a 9degrees
field of view. In addition, they support key IP-Surveillance features such as
H.264 and Motion JPEG, two-way audio, local storage and Power over Ethernet.
Intelligent video is a key component of any thermal camera, and AXIS Q1921/-E
provide tampering alarm, motion detection, and support for AXIS Camera
Application Platform.

AXIS Q1921/-E Thermal Network Cameras are supported by the industry's
largest base of video management software through the Axis Application
Development Partner program as well as AXIS Camera Station. They also support
the ONVIF specification for interoperability of network video products. The
cameras will be available in September 2010 through Axis' distribution
