Axis unveils its first HDTV network camera

You know that epic heist you were planning? Yeah, that one. You should probably double check your security schematics and ensure that whatever building you're about to invade isn't planning on upgrading to these bad boys anytime soon. Axis has just introduced its very first HDTV network camera, the January-bound Q1755. Obviously ideal for airports, casinos and other crowd-filled locations, the 2-megapixel security camera features a 10x zoom, H.264 compression / Motion JPEG support, 16:9 aspect ratio and 1080i / 720p recording. You'll also find a built-in SD / SDHC card slot for extra storage, and it can get all the energy it needs via Ethernet. 'Course, no security cam would be complete without enhanced "video motion detection, audio detection and detection of camera tampering such as blocking or spray-painting," and we suppose all those niceties somewhat justify the $1,499 price tag.
