CHELMSFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Axis Communications, the global leader in network video, has been honored by Security Today magazine as a gold winner of The Govies Government Security Award for 2017 for its AXIS Q8631-E PT Thermal Network Camera in the Video Surveillance Cameras IP category. The awards honor outstanding government security products in a variety of categories. Platinum and gold designations were announced during the ISC West Expo at Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Designed specifically for the most challenging conditions, the AXIS Q8631-E PT Thermal Network Camera is equipped with pan/tilt mobility reducing the number of fixed thermal cameras needed to cover a single area. The AXIS Q8631-E also offers shock detection, which sends an alarm if it detects vandalism. The thermal imaging allows users to see people and objects more clearly in a variety of light conditions, from pitch dark areas to a sunlit parking lot making it perfect for outdoor installation. Additionally, its Arctic Temperature Control allows the camera to safely start up and operate in temperatures as low as -40°C/°F and up to 55°C/131°F.
“At Axis Communications we understand the unique needs and challenges associated with securing government facilities and strive to create products that adhere to those needs,” says Fredrik Nilsson, Vice President, Americas, Axis Communications, Inc. “Receiving a gold Govies award is wonderful recognition for the hard work we put into creating quality products and solutions for our many government customers.”
“The Govies is an amazing product recognition program whereby companies in the security industry can highlight their technology and solutions that work flawlessly within the government vertical,” said Ralph C. Jensen, editor in chief of Security Today magazine and securitytoday.com. “We received 28% more entries this year, which also corresponds with the need to provide better security options not only at the federal level but also at the state and municipal level of government. I believe these products and solutions only prove that the government relies heavily on the technology advances in the private sector.”
An independent panel of judges from the security industry selected the top entries in the 2017 categories and named them winners using criteria including Features, Innovation, User Friendliness, Interoperability, Quality, Design, Market Opportunity, Impact in the Security Industry, Technical Advances, and Scalability.
