The plan of the Jabil plant in Uzhhorod, 2007
Axis Communications started at the Jabil plant production of cameras with the ARTPEC-7 chip
On December 2, 2019 the Axis Communications company announced expansion of a production line at the Jabil plant in Tver, one of partners in production Axis in Europe. The lineup provided on the Russian production was replenished with cameras with the ARTPEC-7 chip with elements of artificial intelligence. For December, 2019 on own production of Axis 16 models of the cameras which are most demanded in the Russian market are made. Thus, their quantity increased by 60% in comparison with the 2016th year when the company started a local production line in Russia.
Axis Communications provided the seventh generation of own ARTPEC chip in the spring of the 2019th year. According to the developer, ARTPEC-7 differs in the increased quality of processing of video and also opens ample opportunities for video analysts. It increases efficiency applications of Axis Lightfinder 2.0 and Forensic WDR which allow to receive more detailed, saturated in color and qualitative image in different conditions of lighting. Besides, thanks to Axis Zipstream technology with support of formats H.264 H.265 it is also possible to save all important image details, considerably reducing at the same time traffic and requirements to volume storages.
Among the devices made on a production line of Axis in Tver – the high-performance rotary PTZ camera Q6075-E with a 40-fold optical zoom which is equipped with the ARTPEC-7 chip and provides the hi-res picture even in the conditions of bad illumination. Thanks to the AXIS Q6075 chip differs in photosensitivity and it will be especially effective for security video surveillance on wide open spaces, such as cities, industrial facilities and key objects of infrastructure, claim in Axis Communications.
Also among the released devices – the cameras AXIS P1375 and AXIS P1375-E with the ARTPEC-7 chip intended for internal and outside video surveillance with quality of 2 Megapixels. They, according to the producer, are suitable for work on open spaces where high detailing is necessary: for example, in parks, banks, on loading platforms or cash desks of self-service in shops. Also in cameras functions of cyber security are increased that excludes installation not of a licensed software and protects from date leak. Cameras underwent certification of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation for installation on transport objects.
The line of the devices with the ARTPEC-7 chip made in Tver was also filled up by P32 series models, the fixed hardly noticeable cameras with permission of HDTV AXIS P3245-V, AXIS P3245-LV, AXIS P3245-LVE, AXIS P3245-VE. They are equipped with a zoom lens and a remote zoom with focusing and will be suitable for installation in places where detailed observation, for example, in banks and shops of retail is required.
Besides, a series of the dome cameras released at the plant was replenished with the AXIS P3374-V, AXIS P3374-LV, AXIS P3375-V, AXIS P3375-LV, AXIS P3375-VE, AXIS P3375-LVE models. These hardly noticeable cameras are suitable for recognition of moving objects, such as machines or people. They have function of remote control of a zoom and focusing that reduces costs for installation of a system, and the built-in system of double-sided audio delivery. Thanks to this function it is possible not only to write a sound, but also to frighten off the violator at penetration on the territory and to prevent incident. Also as of December, 2019 the fixed AXIS P1435 LE, AXIS P1445 LE, AXIS P1447 LE network cameras are manufactured in Russia.

- In Russia we intend to be focused on several production directions, including computers and storage systems, TVs, plasma display panels, digital Set-top boxes, telecommunication equipment, payment terminals and also electronics for automotive industry. All this will be manufactured by us in Russia only for the local market, without export abroad.
120 people from whom 60 are engaged directly in production work at the pipeline line of assembly of the Cisco prefixes, and the others perform testing, repair, filling of software and other service functions. During 2012 the staff of the plant will extend on 100‑150 people, and in the next four years we are going to create about one thousand jobs, having brought production capacity to 1 million units of production a year. I think, we will have no problems with the personnel because the Russian education system proved around the world and here many competent specialists needing prestigious work. Any of them can become our employee, and the main selection criteria are the enthusiasm and desire to work. Besides, at employment we hold testing and we send the applicants who successfully passed it to two-week professional development course on different specializations.
The plant in Tver will consist of several buildings. Two of them, of 10 thousand and 15 thousand sq.m, are already constructed, and the third will be complete during 2012 then the area of factory premises will be 45 thousand sq.m. In this territory not only production workshops Jabil, but also a finished goods warehouse and components will be located. After expansion of capacities at the plant three lines of surface mount and one line of wave soldering for production of printed circuit boards with a possibility of obtaining the certificate of ST-1 for the CIS countries will appear. So far the plant is capable to perform finishing assembly of products and also its testing. Besides, we intend to increase considerably repair capacities to provide to our clients an after-sale service of electronics in all territory of Russia and the CIS.
Jabil was initially created as the repair company, and still service of electronics is one of the key directions of business. We undertake warranty and post warranty service of electronic products of customers, and any, and not just that which we make at the plants. With some clients we sign service contracts according to which we make nothing for them but only we perform repair of finished goods.
In Russia we already adjust an extensive partner network with points of collecting of the equipment on warranty and post warranty service in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kaliningrad, Nizhny Novgorod, Kazan, Samara, Rostov, Krasnodar, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk, Khabarovsk and Vladivostok.

At the same time we are ready to provide to clients the shortest time of repair or replacement of the equipment: within six days to take away it from a collecting point in any region of the Russian Federation, to deliver to the plant, to perform necessary works and to return back. In Russia we intend to advance service of notebooks and smartphones most actively.

These are the most compact set-top-box in a model range of Cisco. Their modest dimensions are caused by bezventilyatorny construction thanks to which they besides do not publish noise during operation. Prefixes gather based on the Broadcom BCM7405 and BCM7406 processors capable to perform 1 billion instructions per second. Both models have the certificate of compatibility with Microsoft the Mediaroom platform and also with a set of media platforms based on Linux. The ISB 2230 model has function of the digital video-recorder and has built in hard drive for storage of a video information, and ISB 2200 is delivered in a diskless configuration. Also Jabil releases modifications of these prefixes with support of SCART interface to provide their connection to any TV. The first batch of Cisco Set-top boxes is made by Jabil for the benefit of the company "VimpelCom". Set-top-box is already the second stage of the localization program of the products Cisco: since spring of 2011 at one of the Russian enterprises it makes electronic payments for VPN- modules which finishing assembly is also performed on the Tver production capacities of Jabil.
2009: Opening of the plant in Tver under Sony
The Jabil Russia LLC plant – the legal person registered for work of Jabil in the CIS – was originally open in Tver in 2009 for the purpose of localization of production of LCD TVs of Sony for the Russian market. However in the spring of 2011 the Sony corporation made the decision to stop production of any products in the territory of Europe. Therefore as soon as the Cisco company, was engaged in localization of product output in Russia, in Jabil at once offered the companies the services.
From an interview of Philip Kostemal, the head of Jabil in Russia (February, 2012):
We selected Logopark Tver for reasons of prospects of this region in terms of logistics and infrastructure. Development of the logistic complex "Logopark Tver" in the territory of which the Jabil plant is located is financed by the KSA group working at the Russian market of wholesale as automobile spare parts and supplies and also UK Transfingroup Ltd.
