[quote]In correctional facilities as well as in psychiatric wards, there is an increasing need to prevent the self-harm and avoid internal conflicts among the residents, We have developed AXIS Q8414-LVS keeping in mind that a surveillance camera should lack ligature points and present an anti-grip design. On top of these features, it should also offer superb video quality during day and night and be extremely vandal resistant.[/quote]

This new camera is ideal for the video surveillance of small rooms in the premises like interview rooms, correctional facilities, psychiatric wards, elevators, medical observation rooms and more. It features a built-in microphone and the possibility to integrate the network camera into the alarm system through its I/O port and it is the part of the overall surveillance solution which is an important tool to protect and secure the safety of the people int he highly secured environments. In addition privacy masks assure that restricted areas not monitored for privacy reasons to protect the personnel.

AXIS Q8414-LVS features the unique design which has been developed to be perceived softer and less provocative than that of other security installations in correctional facilities and psychiatric wards. Working closely with prison and health authorities in several countries as well as system integrators and installers, Axis designed AXIS Q8414-LVS to feature as few cavities and holes as possible so prisoners and patients cannot stuff anything inside them and the camera is easy to clean.

It offers 1.3 Megapixel or HDTV 720p video stream and features P-Iris control of an optimal depth of field, image contrast and clarity and resolution. The horizontal angle of view up to 105° covers the entire room without blind spots. Capabilities such as remote zoom and focus facilitate the optimization of the captured view during the installation.
