AXIS Q16 Series

Low-Light & Wide Dynamic Range Cameras for Indoor & Outdoor Use

AXIS’ unique Lightfinder technology makes AXIS Q16 Series cameras sensitive to low light – allowing the cameras to ‘see’ in the dark. The Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) with ‘dynamic capture’ allows AXIS Q16 to provide homogeneous images, without parts that are too bright or too dark.

The AXIS Q16 box camera series is a line of high-performance, fixed box cameras designed for demanding video surveillance conditions, offering outstanding image quality in various lighting situations, including low light, backlight, and complex lighting environments. These cameras are suitable for both indoor and outdoor settings, catering to a wide range of applications such as traffic surveillance, airports, stadiums, railway stations, schools, governmental buildings, and industrial areas. The series is known for its adaptability, robustness, and advanced security and analytics capabilities.
