Endless possibilities for video surveillance.
The video surveillance market is growing constantly, driven
by increased public and private security concerns, as well as
a technology shift.
The transition to network video is a reality as customers take advantage
of flexible, industry standard systems for security and video surveillance.
As security management over the IP network expands and intelligence
capabilities move out to network cameras, systems can scale much more
easily. This move to open systems empowers a much more productive and
cost-effective means of surveillance than was ever possible.
today’s video
For the security manager, the shift to network video creates
new opportunities where digital technology can be put to use
to deliver maximum value.
Superior image quality
Scalability and flexibility
Image quality is clearly one of the most important
features of any camera, if not the most important.
Superior image quality enables the user to more closely
follow details and changes in images, making way for
better and faster decisions to more effectively safeguard people and property. It also ensures greater
accuracy for automated analysis and alarm tools. Axis
network cameras provide high-quality video images,
and megapixel and HDTV network cameras are available to provide even more image details.
An Axis network video system can be expanded by adding more network cameras. 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 can all be
easily added when required, thanks to strict adherence
to industry standards.
Remote accessibility
With network video, users can access real-time
video at any time from any authorized computer
anywhere. Axis network video products provide an
easy way to capture and distribute high quality video
over any kind of IP network or the Internet. The video
can be stored at remote locations for convenience and
security, and the information can be transported over
the LAN or Internet.
Easy, future-proof integration
There are almost no limitations as to where a
network video product can be placed. Axis network
video has the capacity to provide a high level of
integration with other equipment and functions,
making it a continually developing system. 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 alarms,
intruder and visitor management.
Based on open standards, Axis network video
products run on IP networks. Using standard PC server
hardware 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 LANs and the
Internet can be leveraged for other applications across
the organization.
Distributed intelligence
These days, a massive amount video is being
recorded, but never watched or reviewed due to
lack of time. As a result, events and activities are
missed, and suspicious behaviors remain unnoticed.
With network video, intelligence has been brought
into the camera itself. Network cameras can have
built-in video 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. Other unique features include audio detection
and active tampering alarm.

The IP way
Protecting existing CCTV investments
Significant investments in analog CCTV systems may
have already been made. The technology shift to network video does not, however, mean that existing analog
CCTV investments have to be discarded. With an Axis
network video solution, you can integrate your existing
analog system into an IP-based solution. The solution
enables you to take advantage of numerous functionalities such as remote pan/tilt/zoom, Power over Ethernet,
audio detection and video motion detection, while
meeting user requirements for image quality, recording
capabilities, reliability, and cost-effectiveness.
Leveraging IT investments and achieving a
lower total cost of ownership
The majority of businesses now have high-speed,
IP-based networks connected to the Internet. Adding
an Axis network video system simply utilizes and
extends the same infrastructure to include video functionality. Standard IT equipment such as switches, PC
servers for video recording and storage, are used, so
existing investments in IT infrastructure and devices
can be leveraged, ensuring high return on investment.

Megapixel and HDTV network cameras
Megapixel network cameras enable at least three times
higher resolution of video images than can be provided
by analog CCTV. An HDTV network camera provides even
better video quality with full frame rate and excellent
color representation. Megapixel and HDTV technology
enhances the ability to identify people and objects.
Outdoor, day/night and thermal video
Many network video products are designed for tough
environments. Network cameras and video encoders can
be resistant to dust, vibrations, humidity and vandalism.
Automatic day and night functionality ensures good image quality even during night time - outdoors as well as
indoors. Thermal network cameras enable operators to
detect people, objects and incidents also in complete
darkness and other difficult conditions such as smoke
and haze.
Axis video encoders and
rack solutions
Axis video encoders make it possible to move toward a network video
system without having to discard
existing analog equipment. They
connect to analog cameras, digitize
the images and send them over an
IP network, allowing analog cameras to take advantage of many of
the same benefits as provided by
network cameras.

An Axis network video system is able to send
video without the need for a dedicated physical
infrastructure. It uses standard IP networks,
such as Local Area Networks (LANs)
and the Internet, for transporting

1. Network cameras for any need
Axis provides the market’s largest portfolio of network cameras,
delivering key benefits to video surveillance users.
Fixed network cameras
Fixed dome network cameras
A fixed network camera meets a variety of application
needs, and its traditional camera design adds a deterring effect. The viewing direction is set once the camera
is mounted. There are several models with a varifocal
lens and/or exchangeable lenses for increased flexibility. Housings are available for mounting the camera
outdoors or in harsh environments.
A fixed dome network camera is a compact camera
solution with a dome casing. Its main benefit lies in
its discreet, nonobtrusive design, as well as in the fact
that it is difficult to see in which direction the camera
is pointing. The camera’s dome casing design offers
efficient protection against redirection and defocusing.
Thermal network cameras
Offers network video functionality combined with pan/
tilt/zoom capability, enabling wide area coverage and
great details when zooming in. The camera’s movement is easily controlled by an operator, or it can be run
in guard tour mode, where the camera automatically
moves between preset positions. PTZ dome network
cameras are available in outdoor-ready models for easy
and reliable installation in tough environments.
A thermal network camera creates images based on
the heat that always radiates from any object, vehicle
or person. The cameras see through complete darkness
and deliver images that allow operators to detect and
act on suspicious activity around the clock in all conditions. Thermal network cameras are a perfect complement to any professional IP surveillance system.

2. Video encoders
A cost-effective way to integrate analog cameras and gain
important benefits of network video.
Standalone video encoders
Video encoder blades and racks
Standalone video encoders are versatile solutions for
migrating analog cameras to network video in small to
large installations. Axis offers standalone video
encoders with different levels of functionality supporting 1, 4 or 16 analog channels, and ruggedized versions
are available for tough environments.
Blade versions of video encoders offer the same
capabilities as standalone products, but require mounting in a video encoder rack to function. A rack with
encoder blades provides a high-density solution for
migrating large-scale analog installations to IP, and
can accommodate from 1 up to as many as 84 analog
channels in one unit, providing a flexible and expandable solution.
