Axis Communications Q6055-C Overview

The Q6055-C 1080p Outdoor PTZ Network Dome Camera from Axis Communications features a 1/2.8" progressive scan CMOS sensor and 4.3-129mm varifocal lens to capture video at a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080. The lens offers 32x optical zoom for capturing detail at long distances. The camera features Axis Zipstream technology, which significantly lowers bandwidth and storage requirements while preserving high quality images.

This camera comes with built-in basic video analytics such as highlight compensation, object removed, fence detector, object counter, and enter/exit detection, and also supports Autotracking and Active Gatekeeper functions. With the Active Gatekeeper function, the camera can automatically move to a preset position when motion is detected in a pre-defined area, and track the detected object. The camera also supports third-party intelligent video applications that are based on the Axis Camera Application Platform.

With its built-in active cooling system, the camera can operate in temperatures up to 167°F (75°C). Furthermore, it is enclosed in an IP66- and NEMA 4X-rated housing that meets the MIL-STD-810G military standard, ensuring reliable operation in harsh weather conditions such as sandstorms. The included Axis T8607 media converter switch allows the camera to be connected to the network in a daisy chain using standard network or fiber optic cables. It also enables the camera to be connected to external alarm devices via two configurable input/output ports, and to a 24V power outlet.
