In the last 6 months, interest in IP based thermal cameras have increased with Axis, FLIR and Pelco announcing relatively low cost product offerings.
In this test report, we investigate how well the Axis Q1910 thermal camera works in the field, integrating it with Exacq's VMS and with Agent Vi's video analytics. We also contrast the performance of the thermal to Axis's Q1755 HD camera to better understand tradeoffs.
We explore the following questions:
What is the setup/configuration required to use the camera?
How far can the camera see?
What is the maximum FoV width to detect humans?
How does the camera's performance compare to a megapixel camera?
What palette or color profiles should be used to optimize viewing?
How does the camera impact the use of video analytics?
What limitations should be factored in for using the camera?
