Video management software for up to 50 cameras

Axis Communications : 04 April, 2008  (New Product)
Axis Camera Station now supports H.264 compression standard along with improvements to user interface for easier video management
Axis Communications has released a new generation of Axis Camera Station, the company's comprehensive video management software for monitoring, playback and event management for up to 50 Axis network cameras. Significant highlights of this software release include an enhanced user interface and support for H.264 video compression techniques.

Axis Camera Station is an ideal Network Video surveillance solution for retail, hotels, schools and other venues. A significant development incorporated in the new version 3.0 software is the support for H.264 video in addition to Motion JPEG and MPEG-4. H.264, the new global standard for video compression, allows high video quality coupled with significantly reduced network load and storage and is a key capability of all Axis' upcoming Network Video products.

Axis Camera Station is installed in more than 100,000 video channels worldwide and is a robust, field-proven video management software solution. The application is specially designed for Axis Network Video products, offering automatic camera discovery, a versatile event configuration wizard coupled with powerful recording and search functions plus timeline visualisation and export functionality. In addition, scheduled and event-driven recording can be triggered manually through motion detection or external input/output connections. The Windows client of AXIS Camera Station can be installed on any PC, enabling remote viewing and control from anywhere on the internet or a corporate network.

This third generation video management software offers PTZ and Dome camera control using a mouse or joystick along with digital PTZ support in live view and in playback. Axis Camera Station also offers security with multiple access levels and an unlimited recording database restricted only by the disk space available. With an open architecture, the software comes with a well-documented application programming interface (API) for easy integration with other systems such as point of sale and access control.

Anders Laurin, executive vice president, Axis Communications commented:
'For many users, especially in small-to-medium-sized installations, it is vital that the application is quick to install and easy to configure and use. The new user-friendly interface and simplified management of Axis Camera Station 3.0 is our response to these user demands. In addition, the support for H.264 in AXIS Camera Station will allow users to build cost-efficient video surveillance systems that deliver superior video image quality."

Steve Gorski, managing director, Axis Communications (UK) commented:
"These new innovations incorporated into AXIS Camera Station 3.0 ensure our software manages new developments such as H.264 and maintains its proven reputation for user friendliness and reliability. We are confident this new version will be well received in the market."
