Tablets are growing at a quicker pace than any other categories and will most likely be the engine of growth for the mobility sector for the next couple of years.
According to Ashish Panjabi, Chief Operating Officer of Jacky’s Electronics, the UAE’s leading multi-brand consumer electronics retailer, the tablet market took off in the UAE and in the region only in 2010 and the demand in this category will continue to grow in the coming years. Research firm Strategy Analytics’ findings showed that the global tablet market is expected to grow to $49 billion or to sell 149 million tablet devices by 2015, beating every consumer electronic products after TVs and PCs segments .
“Tablets have played an integral part of our growth over the last 12 months, and since the time Apple iPad was launched, we've seen this category emerge overnight. Today, it accounts for 10-14% of our total IT sales,” said Panjabi. “However, the bigger challenge has been securing supplies of stocks as demand far exceeds supply at the moment. Currently, any sort of growth figures for this category would be in triple digits.”
Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, today presents its top-of-the-line HDTV 1080p pan/tilt/zoom dome cameras with 20x optical zoom for the ultimate in video quality and performance. The indoor and outdoor-ready AXIS Q6035/-E PTZ Dome
“AXIS Q6035/-E cameras provide the highest possible HDTV resolution and incredible details when zooming in,” says Baraa Al Akkad, Regional Manager, Axis Communications Middle East. “The cameras meet demanding requirements. They’re fast, precision PTZ domes that are easy to install and provide reliable installation features. They also support intelligent video functionalities such as Active Gatekeeper, which combines the functions of video motion detection and auto-tracking.”
AXIS Q6035/-E cameras support day and night functionality for clearer video in low light conditions, and wide dynamic range for better visibility of objects in dark and light areas of a scene. With 360° endless pan, they are robustly built for constant pan/tilt/zoom movements and support a tour recording functionality that makes it easy to set up automatic guard tour operations.
Due to its HDTV resolution, AXIS Q6035/-E’s 20x zoom with autofocus provides a level of detail in zoomed-in views that is comparable to a 4CIF-resolution camera with more than twice the zoom ratio. In addition, the cameras provide the extra advantage of a wider, 16:9 field of view. Complying with relevant parts of the SMPTE 274M standard, the cameras’ HDTV 1080p entails a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, progressive scan, color fidelity, full frame rate and a 16:9 format. The cameras can deliver multiple, individually configurable H.264 and Motion JPEG video streams simultaneously. H.264 greatly optimizes bandwidth and storage use without compromising image quality.
The indoor AXIS Q6035 has an IP52 rating for protection against dust and dripping water, enabling the camera to function even when a sprinkler system is activated. The outdoor AXIS Q6035-E has IP66 and NEMA 4X ratings for protection against rain, snow, sun and dust, and incorporates Axis’ unique Arctic Temperature Control, which allows the camera to start up even at -40 °C (-40 °F). No additional enclosures are needed, which saves time and money, and minimizes installation mistakes. Both indoor and outdoor models are powered using High Power over Ethernet, which further simplifies installation since only one cable is required for power, video and PTZ controls. Support for High PoE also means that the cameras can be connected to an Uninterruptible Power Supply and continue to function even during a power failure.
With Active Gatekeeper, the cameras can automatically move to a preset position to capture, for instance, a vehicle license plate or a person’s face when motion is detected in a pre-defined area, and then track the detected object. The cameras’ support for AXIS Camera Application Platform also enables the installation of video analytic applications from Axis’ partners.
The indoor AXIS Q6035 supports two-way audio and audio detection, and enables connection to external devices such as sensors and relays. AXIS Q6035/-E cameras have a built-in SD/SDHC memory card slot that enables recordings to be stored locally.
