Easy, future-proof integration
Put the cameras wherever you want, integrate applications,
and leverage your investments
There are almost no limitations as to where you can place Axis network
video products. They are not tied to physical inputs or frame grabbers
and you can connect the product to a LAN, xDSL, modem, wireless adapter
or cell phone. Basically wherever you can receive a phone call on your
cell phone, you can receive images from an Axis network video solution.
In addition, Axis network video has the capacity to provide a high level
of integration with other equipment and functions, making it a continually
*Migrating your analog CCTV system into
a network video solution
With an Axis network video solution, you can integrate your existing analog
system with products that bring it up to speed with the latest IP technology.
The solution enables you to take advantage of numerous functionalities
such as remote pan/tilt/zoom, Power over Ethernet, wireless, megapixel,
audio, motion detection and many more, while meeting your requirements
for image quality, recording capabilities and reliability.
A fully integrated Axis network video system can be used for a multitude
of applications simultaneously: for instance, access control, building
management, point-of-sales systems, ATMs, as well as fire, intruder and
visitor management, and so forth.
Scalability and flexibility
A system that grows with your needs
An Axis network video system can be expanded by adding more network cameras.
This is just as easily done regardless of whether the new cameras are
to be placed at the same site, or at a new location communicating over
the Internet. You can choose exactly what you need today, and scale the
system at any time to meet your growing needs. New technologies, additional
cameras, and extra storage capacity are all easily added as required,
thanks to strict adherence to industry standards.
Save money and lower total cost of ownership thanks to strict adherence
to industry standards
Based on open standards, Axis’ professional network video products
run on Ethernet networking. Using standard PC server hardware for video
recording and storage rather than proprietary equipment such as DVRs radically
reduces management and equipment costs, particularly for larger systems
where storage and servers are a significant portion of the total solution
cost. Additional cost savings come from the infrastructure used. IP-based
networks such as the Internet, LANs and various connection methods such
as wireless can be leveraged for other applications across the organization.
Axis network video products also support a number of advanced technologies
such as Power over Ethernet, which provides power to the network camera
using the same cable as that used for network connection.
Put the system's intelligence wherever you need it
In today’s network video systems, intelligence has been brought
into the camera itself. Advanced network cameras can have built-in motion
detection and alarm management so the camera decides when to send video,
at what frame rate and resolution, and when to alert a specific operator
for monitoring and/or response. More intelligent algorithms - number plate
recognition, people counting, face recognition - are also being integrated
into network cameras. You obtain data in more manageable forms and with
higher levels of accuracy. Intelligence at the camera level implies a
far more effective means of surveillance than is possible with a DVR or
other centralized system.
