TOKYO, April 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Axis announces the 7th generation of its own ARTPEC chip, optimized for network video. The new chip will power an array of new capabilities and features coming to Axis network cameras. Since the chip is fully developed by Axis, it provides a layer of control that is crucial for effective cybersecurity.

Even better imaging under any conditions in any mode

Thanks to a completely redesigned image processing pipeline, the chip further improves all the signature Axis technologies that have been created to address difficult light conditions. For example, Lightfinder 2.0 will deliver more saturated and realistic colors than ever in low-light, along with the sharpest images of moving objects even in the darkest areas. Increased sensitivity to light also significantly extends the range of illumination for Axis cameras with IR.

Enhanced security features

ARTPEC-7 enables "built-in" security features for Axis cameras, including signed firmware so only secure authorized firmware can be installed, and secure boot, which prevents booting of unauthorized firmware.

Powerful compression

Future Axis cameras will also let users choose between H.264 and H.265 video encoding depending on what best suits their system and surveillance needs. Either encoding standard in combination with Axis Zipstream technology will now require even lower bandwidth and storage space without sacrificing image quality.

Impressive analytics on-the-edge

Finally, this chip features a real-time object detection engine that will make it possible for Axis and Axis partners to develop powerful analytics to automatically detect and differentiate between people, faces and objects.
