AXIS 241QA Video Server enables analog cameras to be integrated into an IP-based video
surveillance system, providing users with the benefits of professional network video technology.
AXIS 241QA Video Server converts analog video signals
into high quality, de-interlaced, digital video streams
that are sent over an IP network. The AXIS 241QA
accommodates four analog video streams.
MPEG-4 and Motion JPEG streams can be sent
simultaneously from each channel and at full frame
rate. This allows users to have different viewing and
recording settings that are optimized for image quality
and efficient bandwidth/storage use.
AXIS 241QA Video Server provides powerful
event management functions, including built-in motion
detection, image upload, alarm notification and I/O
control.
The video servers’ serial ports enable pan/tilt/zoom
control of PTZ cameras and PTZ dome cameras over the
network.
The AXIS 241QA Video Server offers comprehensive
security features such as multiple user access levels,
IP address filtering, HTTPS encryption and IEEE 802.1X
authentication.
An integrated two-way audio support enables the users
to not only see, but also listen in on an area and
communicate requests or orders.
