AXIS F41 Main Unit is designed for use with an AXIS F sensor unit in extremely discreet video surveillance applications. The main unit can be installed in a sheltered area, while the sensor units can be placed in tight places indoors or outdoors up to 8, 12 or 15 m (26, 39 or 49 ft.) away, depending on the sensor unit and if a cable accessory is supported. The rugged and feature-rich AXIS F41 Main Unit is suitable for a variety of demanding applications, such as in casinos, stores, ATMs (automated teller machines) and vehicles.
Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) – Forensic Capture
AXIS F41 offers WDR – Forensic Capture, which can be activated when the main unit is connected to an AXIS F Sensor Unit that supports this feature. Axis’ WDR – Forensic Capture enables a high level of detail to be visible in both bright and dark areas of a scene—an important consideration in surveillance applications. The technology is ideally suited for scenarios such as at entrances or in front of ATMs where the subject may be dark against a bright background, or in nighttime situations where the camera must handle low-light environments together with bright lights from vehicles, street lamps, signage and stores.
AXIS F41, together with an AXIS F Sensor Unit, provides color video in light as low as 0.3 lux.
