AXIS Video Server Rack Solution
AXIS 291 1U Video Server Rack is a high-density solution for
the seamless and professional installation of various types
of video encoder in the same rack, and can migrate 4 to 12
analog cameras to network video via a single Ethernet port.
The 19” AXIS 291 1U Video Server Rack can use any com­bi­
nation of up to 3 interchangeable and hot-swappable Axis
blade video servers.
The combination of video server rack and blade video servers
is designed to migrate analog systems to high-performance,
IP-based, digital solutions.
Powerful video
and event management
With Axis network encoders, video can be accessed at any
time, from any computer anywhere. The Axis video server
rack solution allows for powerful event management
with multi-window motion detection, active tampering alarm,
and inputs/outputs for connecting e.g. external relays and
sensors for activating lights, locking/unlocking doors, etc. Preand post-image alarm buffering secures images just before
and after an alarm.
OPEN PROGRAMMING INTERFACE FOR
CUSTOMIZED APPLICATIONS
The Axis video server rack solution includes the industrystandard Axis Application Programming Interface, AXIS VAPIX™
API, which facilitates the development of customized software
solutions. It also ensures compatability with the market’s
widest range of third-party applications, available via Axis
Application Development Partners.
EASY INSTALLATION
SIMULTANEOUS MPEG-4 and
MOTION JPEG
The Axis video server rack solution offers simultaneous
MPEG-4 and Motion JPEG. Video streams can be optimized
for image quality and bandwidth efficiency by configuration of
frame rate, resolution, compression level and format – offering
up to 30 frames per second in 4CIF resolution.
The Axis video server rack solution is ideal when migrating an
analog system to an IP-based video surveillance solution.
The table below shows the unique features of the combination of
AXIS 243Q and AXIS 291 1U in detail.

The Axis video server rack solution integrates easily
and seamlessly, not only with modern IT networks,
but also with existing analog surveillance systems.
The use of standard software and hardware
ensures a dependable and robust system that
is simple to install and operate.
serviceability
The Axis video server rack solution offers improved service­ability and trouble-free unit replacement or expansion - simply
add more blades. The rack provides serial communication and
I/O connectors at the rear of each slot, and a single network
connection together with integrated power for simple
installation. There is no need to power down when installing
or changing blades. AXIS 291 1U combines high reliability and
functionality with quick, flexible and professional installation.
AXIS 291 1U is designed for applications that need to be able
to expand, not only by adding more channels, but also by
using different types of cameras. It is ideal for airports, hotels
and train stations or other premises where analog cameras are
already installed.
Advanced security
and network management
To facilitate the centralized management of Axis network
video devices, the Axis video server rack solution is supported
by AXIS Camera Management, which can locate and display
connection status, set IP addresses, configure single or
multiple units, and also manage firmware upgrades and user
access rights. The Axis video server rack solution offers a
comprehensive set of network security features, such as multilevel password protection, IP address filtering and HTTPS
encryption.
The Axis video server rack solution supports Quality of Service
(QoS), which enables e.g. the reservation of network capacity
and the prioritization of mission-critical surveillance traffic
on a QoS-aware network. The rack solution also includes
support for Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), which amongst
many improvements allows the use of a far greater number
of IP addresses than currently available in IPv4. The support
for 802.1X network access control is used to authenticate
hosts wishing to access devices or resources on a protected
network.
AXIS Blade Video Servers
A wide range of blade video servers is available. Further information can be found in the datasheet for each video server.
