At use-IP we often blog about new products from Axis Communications and include what at first seem to be the meaningless Axis product codes in the product names, such as “Q6032-E” “M1031-W” etc. Well, in fact, the product codes can give you a good overview of the specifications and possible applications of each model. Each character of the product code denotes a certain aspect of the product:
Take the M1031-W for example:
All of the above then gives you the series name, in this case the “Axis M10 Series“
There are many different possibilities for each character of the product name and Axis provide a breakdown of each of these on their website.

The Mobotix Q24 is their latest 3 megapixel hemispheric network camera.
It supercedes the popular Mobotix Q22. The ‘4’ is a new designation from Mobotix and represents their new faster processing engine, we will in due course see this appear in other models in the range e.g. Mobotix ‘D’ series dome cameras and the original ‘M’ series cameras.
The hemispheric operating principles are quite difficult to understand from a cold start and we are often quizzed about just what the Mobotix Q24 can actually do.
The classic application is to ceiling-mount this camera in the centre of a room and gain the ability to monitor and record everything that occurs anywhere in the room, with electronic pan/tilt/zoom capability to zoom into any area of interest (either in Live mode or in recorded footage) to see more detail. But, you can also wall-mount the Q24 and view a 180° wide field-of-view in front of the camera OR set the camera to deliver views of three preset selected sections of the overall scene covered.
Those good people at specialist Mobotix trainers The IP Academy have just released a new video introducing the Q24 and explaining a few of these features, it does a far better job than my words above seem to …

As unlikely as it seems, we are now headed towards 2 TeraBytes on an SD card!
We’ve covered this topic of MegaBytes, GigaBytes, TeraBytes and PetaBytes before, but we realise that it still confuses people, so we just thought it might be worthwhile mentioning Google’s inbuilt converter and calculation functions for those that aren’t already aware of them.
If you want to know exactly how MegaBytes compares to GigaBytes (or whatever), just type your query into Google’s search box in the following format:
500MB in GB
Google’s first ‘search result’ will be:
500 megabytes = 0.48828125 gigabytes
You can use this for any conversion using:
KB = KiloBytes
MB = MegaBytes
GB = GigaBytes
TB = TeraBytes
PB = PetaBytes
It also works for other conversions:
4 pounds in kilos
4 pounds = 1.81436948 kilograms
2 feet in cm
2 feet = 60.96 centimeters
Google will also tell you the current time in most World Cities:
10:18am Wednesday (EST) – Time in Brisbane, Queensland
|Brisbane, California||4:18pm||-1 day||PST|
Hope that’s handy to know?
