Key Features
  • Extended D1 Recording Resolution
  • 36x Optical and 12x Digital Zoom
  • 360° Pan, 220° Tilt Ranges
  • Electronic Image Stabilization
The Q6042-E PTZ Outdoor IP Dome Camera with 36x Optical Zoom from Axis Communication is a feature-packed IP camera to enhance your surveillance. Its Extended D1 recording resolution provides high-res images that allow you to read a license plate at up to 900' away. This is accomplished by taking advantage of the 36x optical zoom lens, and 12x digital zoom, which gives you a maximum total zoom of 432x. To help with the vibrations this type of zoom often amplifies, the camera is equipped with electronic image stabilization to provide clear images at high magnification. This true PTZ camera also has 360° pan, and 220° tilt ranges to deliver impressive coverage. It can even tilt up to 20° above the horizon, enabling it to see higher than its mount.

The Q6042-E PTZ Outdoor IP Dome Camera with 36x Optical Zoom from Axis Communication is a feature-packed IP camera to enhance your surveillance. Its Extended D1 recording resolution provides high-res images that allow you to read a license plate at up to 900' away. This is accomplished by taking advantage of the 36x optical zoom lens, and 12x digital zoom, which gives you a maximum total zoom of 432x. To help with the vibrations this type of zoom often amplifies, the camera is equipped with electronic image stabilization to provide clear images at high magnification. This true PTZ camera also has 360° pan, and 220° tilt ranges to deliver impressive coverage. It can even tilt up to 20° above the horizon, enabling it to see higher than its mount.

Multiple recording modes allow you to optimize the available memory without sacrificing coverage. The camera has a MicroSD slot that accepts cards up to 64GB for saving files locally, or you can have the files saved to a remote location, like an NVR or NAS. You have modes such as Motion-detection, Scheduled, and Event. Within these modes, you can customize the recording resolution, quality, and frame-rate, as well as activate PTZ presets. So, for example, you can have the camera automatically track a subject when motion is detected, or you can have it go to that area and zoom in for an interval of time. There are also patrols and tours to pan/tilt/zoom to specific areas on a schedule or at random. You can program multiple motion-detection zones within the field of view, with different levels of sensitivity. Privacy masks are also available to block sensitive areas, like ATM keypads, to block private information from the live-view and recording.

Designed for severe outdoor use, the housing is IP66 and NEMA4x to be water-resistant against driving rain and snow, and dustproof. It's also IK10 rated to be impact- and vandal-resistant. With an operating temperature of -58 to 122°F at up to 100% relative humidity and equipped with a fan and heater, the camera can stand up to extremes that others can't.

You can use the camera stand-alone, or integrate it into a surveillance system. It can be accessed remotely via the Internet with any browser, but Axis recommends using Internet Explorer on Windows for full system compatibility. To access the camera, valid username and password is required, and access to the features and functions can be controlled per user.

Performance

  • Up to 1080p display resolution at 30 fps with H.264 compression
  • Extended D1 resolution enables a license plate to be read up to 620' away
  • Multiple configurable media streams: high-resolution and quality for recording, medium or low quality for live-view
  • The lower resolution and quality stream lighten a video card's work by not having to process larger video files
  • Automatic IR cut filter for low-light conditions

Recording Modes

  • Constant: Everything gets recorded, use with Scheduled to conserve HDD space
  • Digital motion detection: When movement is detected, recording starts. Adjustable zones, sensitivities, and pre/post intervals
  • Scheduled: Recording starts/stops or events are recognized at a predetermined day/time
  • Event: When an Event happens, recording starts with adjustable pre/post intervals
  • External alarms: Use with compatible cameras that support external devices like PIRs and door/window contacts to begin recording when they are tripped

PTZ

  • Pan range: 360° endless, 0.05 - 450°/s
  • Tilt range: 220°, 0.05 - 450°/s
  • 36x optical zoom and 12x digital zoom, total 432x zoom
  • 256 preset positions
  • Multiple Patrol and Guard tour recording pre-sets
  • On-screen directional indicator
  • Able to tilt 20% above the horizon, enabling it to see higher than the mounting position
  • Electronic image-stabilization decreases vibrations, especially at extreme zooms, to provide clear images
  • Selectable access for specific users
  • Image-freeze while camera continues to move and record
  • Auto-tracking: When motion is detected, camera will track the movement until it stops or moves out of frame
  • Gatekeeper: When motion is detected at a gate or door, camera will move and zoom-in automatically

Outdoor Installation

  • IP66 and NEMA4x rated, water-resistant against driving rain and snow and dustproof
  • IK10 rated, impact and vandal-resistant
  • Arctic Temperature Control enables camera to boot in extreme cold conditions
  • Built-in heater and fan automatically operate in extreme weather to maintain operability
  • Operating temperature - 58 to 122°F at up to 100% relative humidity
  • Included mid-span repeater ensures required power

Remote Accessibility

  • Valid username and password required for remote access
  • Recommended to use Internet Explore with Windows operating systems, Safari with Mac, and Firefox with other systems, full compatibility with Internet Explorer
  • Control PTZ remotely with OSD virtual keyboard or pointer-tracker
  • Choose to stream higher or lower quality depending on preference
  • Manual trigger, snapshot and save, manual fan over-ride, heater activation
  • Enable/disable Gatekeeper function

Image Settings

  • Wide dynamic range (WDR)
  • Manual shutter time
  • Color, Brightness, Sharpness, White balance
  • Exposure control, Exposure zones, Backlight compensation
  • Fine-tuning of behavior at low light
  • Horizontal mirror-image, Vertical image flip
  • Text and image overlay: adjust the text displayed and the size to minimize obstruction
  • Privacy masking stays constant relative to the size of the monitoring area, so it gets bigger and smaller based on zoom-level
  • 32 individual 3D privacy-masks

Event Triggers

  • Video motion-detection: Ten 'include' and 10 'exclude' zones, with individually adjustable sensitivity. Use in conjunction with Gatekeeper and Auto-tracking
  • Shock detection: If the housing is hit, an event triggers. Sensitivity is adjustable to avoid false alarms from rain/hail/debris
  • PTZ preset: When a preset PTZ command is started, an action can be programmed to occur
  • Edge storage events: If communication between the camera and an NVR or NAS is disrupted, footage is saved locally and automatically sent to the remote storage when communication is restored
  • AXIS camera application platform
  • Housing is opened, Fan/Heater malfunction, Excessive temperature (hot or cold), Manual trigger: When one of these events happen, an action can be programmed to occur
  • If a camera supports external alarm-in devices e.g. PIRs and contacts, an event can be triggered when the external device is tripped

Event Actions

  • When an event happens, multiple actions can programmed to occur
  • Notification: email, HTTP and TCP
  • Recording resolution, rate, and quality can be automatically changed based on event for higher-quality
  • File upload: Still-image or video-clip attached and sent via FTP, HTTP, network share, and email
  • PTZ preset, guard tour, auto-tracking
  • Video recording to local storage
  • Pre/post-alarm video buffering, intervals are programmed per event-trigger
