AXIS 2460
Network DVR
Digital video. Recorded locally.
Viewed globally
Sophisticated yet brilliant in its simplicity, the AXIS 2460
Network DVR takes digital video recording to a completely
new level of advancement. Connect it directly to a TCP/IP
network and remotely access digital video and system
administration tools, using a standard web browser.
Accommodating up to four analog cameras, it has its own
built-in web server and is completely self-maintained. No
need for tapes, tangles or expensive moving parts!
Retaining important video sequences for longer than any
other DVR solution, the AXIS 2460 offers an almost
inexhaustible local recording resource for security video —
using revolutionary APViS™ (Axis Prioritized Video Storage)
■ Stores important video for longer using
revolutionary APViS Technology
■ Fault tolerant system with data base
mirroring and distributed video storage
■ Self-contained and self-maintained system
Used as a single stand-alone system for a small business,
or as an autonomous component within a globally
distributed video surveillance system, the AXIS 2460 is
perfect for use within large retail chains, franchise
■ Built-in firewall functionality
■ Simultaneous viewing, recording, playback,

Innovative APViS™
Stores Important Video for Longer
Older video recordings can contain vital visual evidence.
But when the hard disk in any conventional DVR is full, it
is simply the oldest recordings that are indiscriminately
erased in order to make room for new ones. It’s standard
FIFO logic: the First image In is the First one Out. But, is
this really the smartest way of managing modern
surveillance video?
Using innovative APViS technology, the AXIS 2460
Network DVR makes more efficient use of valuable disk
space to preserve video recordings for longer. By
intelligently using event and alarm data, it cleverly
differentiates between ‘important’ and ‘less important’
The graph to the right displays typical storage times for
APViS ‘Extended’ recording mode versus conventional
‘FIFO’ storage, based on the following configuration:
• Original recording frame rate = 10 fps
• Average image size = 8kB
• 1 x camera
• 4 x 40GB IDE HD
• Continuous low priority recording, and a single top
priority alarm recording with 30 minute duration
Using these criteria, the AXIS 2460 is able to store top
priority video sequences at their original recording rate
four times longer than any conventional FIFO storage
solution — and up to sixteen times longer using an
incrementally reducing framerate. In practical terms, this
can be the dramatic difference between having the
evidence — and not having it!
Secure Storage. Secure Video
■ In security applications, consistent quality of the
recorded image is vital. With three different
resolutions available per connected camera, the AXIS
2460 records in Motion JPEG format and guarantees
consistent high-quality on each and every image.
■ The unique use of data base mirroring and distributed
video storage on all available hard disks allows the
AXIS 2460 to tolerate hard disk failure without losing
complete video recordings. The practical implication of
hard disk failure is a relative reduction in the frame
rate of the recordings.
■ AXIS 2460 has three levels of user/password
protection, with built-in firewall functionality for
secure remote system access over TCP/IP networks.
