Low light surveillance system takes WSJ award

Low light surveillance system takes WSJ award

Axis Communications has received The Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation Award for its Lightfinder technology in the Physical Security category. Lightfinder enables outstanding performance in network cameras during difficult light conditions, specifically low light.

Lightfinder is an unrivalled technology that enables network cameras to see detail and colour - even in dark conditions. Colours can be maintained at night with no need for artificial lighting. Axis launched this technology globally in 2011. Lightfinder is a revolutionary improvement for video surveillance cameras and was the only winner in the Physical Security category.

"We're delighted and honoured to get this award," says Ray Mauritsson, president and CEO at Axis Communications. "It verifies our strength as an innovative company and proves that Axis is a driving force in network video."
In a Wall Street Journal interview, William Webb, chief technology officer of Neul Ltd. and an Innovation Awards judge, said that Axis put together a few different ideas to put more intelligence into how the camera works-ideas that stuck out.
A total of 536 applications from 24 countries were submitted to The Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation Awards competition in 2012. A team of editors and reporters reviewed applications and forwarded the 172 most promising entries to an independent panel of judges from venture-capital firms, universities, and companies. From that pool, the judges chose 37 winners and runners-up in 18 categories.

Other awards that Axis received for its Lightfinder technology include the Private Security Award (2012), ASIS Accolades (2011), and GSN Awards (2011).
