Axis offers a wide range of high quality network cameras for securing
people and property, remotely monitoring equipment and facilities, and
for sending live images and sounds for remote learning, troubleshooting
or Web broadcasting.
What is a network camera?
An Axis network camera can be described
as a camera and computer combined in one intelligent unit. It captures
and sends live video directly over an IP network such as a LAN, intranet
or the Internet and enables users to view and/or manage the camera using
a standard Web browser or video management software on any local or remote
computer on a network. It allows authorized viewers from different locations
to simultaneously access images from the same network camera.
Superior image quality
Image quality is clearly one of the most important features of
any camera, if not the most important. This is particularly so in surveillance
and monitoring applications, where lives and property may be at stake.
Axis has ever since the development of network cameras first began, introduced
a stream of image enhancing technologies and patents. One of our key goals
is to continue to innovate and focus on our image quality market leadership.
The best way to experience Axis' superior image quality is to try our
cameras and see for yourself.
A world of endless possibilities
Flexible and powerful, Axis network video solutions enable you to remotely
and cost-effectively monitor and secure people, property and industrial
processes. You can use it to conduct remote education or troubleshooting,
or broadcast sights and sounds on a Web site. How to design a network
video system depends on your application need and level of complexity.
Axis network video products can be used to remotely and cost-effectively
monitor and protect people, places, and assets; secure sites with the
help of alarm information and video motion detection; provide remote product
demonstrations or consultations from anywhere in the world; or broadcast
live images on Web sites for promotion purposes.
True IP network cameras
With a built-in Web server, Axis network cameras do not need
a direct connection to a PC or any other hardware or software to capture
and transfer images. They operate as stand-alone units and require only
a connection to an IP network by wired or wireless means.
Images can be stored either on the hard disks connected to a PC or a dedicated
storage server on the network. With Power over Ethernet, you have the
option of using the same Ethernet cable both for data communications as
well as power. This feature makes it easier to install products since
an electrician is not required and the network video product is able to
operate even when there is a power failure.
Axis network cameras have digital inputs and outputs (I/O). Digital
inputs that are connected to alarm devices or sensors can, for instance,
be used to trigger the transmission of images from a camera to a select
destination for recording, or request that e-mail alerts or SMS notification
be sent, for example, to a mobile phone. Digital outputs enable you to
remotely, or automatically upon alarm, close or open doors, turn lights
on or off, or control other devices. Network cameras also have image buffers
that can save and send the images collected before an alarm occurred.
Access to live video at anytime, from anywhere
Axis' award-winning network video products are designed with built-in
computers so they do not require a direct connection to a PC or any additional
software to stream live video and audio over networks. Simply connect
the network video products to an IP network (such as a LAN, intranet or
Internet) and view live images from any local or remote, networked computer
with a standard Web browser.
Network video can be used in an almost unlimited number
of situations; however, most of its uses fall into one of the following
Network video's advanced functionality makes it highly suited to the applications
involved in security surveillance. The flexibility of digital technology
enhances security personnel’s ability to protect people, property
and assets. Such systems are therefore an especially attractive option
for companies currently using CCTV.
Network video gives users the ability to gather information at all key
points of an operation and view it in real-time. This makes the technology
ideal for monitoring equipment, people and places both locally and remotely.
Application examples include traffic and production line monitoring, and
the monitoring of multiple store locations.
Comparing a network and an analog camera
In recent years, network camera technology has caught up to the analog
camera and now meets the same requirements and specifications. Network
cameras even surpass the performance of analog cameras, by offering a
number of advanced functions.
In short, an analog camera is a one-directional signal carrier which
terminates at the DVR and operator level, whereas a network camera is
fully bi-directional, and integrates with and drives the rest of the system
to a high degree in a distributed and scalable environment. A network
camera communicates with several applications in parallel, to perform
various tasks, such as detecting motion or sending different streams of
The main vertical markets where network video systems have been
successfully installed are:
Security and remote monitoring of school playground areas, corridors,
halls and classrooms, as well as security of the buildings themselves.
Remote monitoring of railway stations and tracks, highways and airports.
Traditional security applications in high street banks, branch offices
and ATM locations.
For surveillance purposes, to provide safe and secure public environments.
For security and remote monitoring purposes to make store management easier
and more efficient.
Monitoring manufacturing processes, logistic systems, warehouse and stock
