The Axis Camera Station software is a complete monitoring and recording solution for up to 100 cameras. Designed for Axis network video products, this software is designed for easy installation and setup with automatic camera discovery and an event configuration wizard, as well as efficient management of the cameras in the system.
You can view and record video and audio from up to 100 cameras with H.264, MPEG-4, and MJPEG video compression. Support for H.264 video compression enables optimization of bandwidth and storage efficiency by significantly reducing the bit rate without compromising image quality.
Scheduled and event-driven recordings are triggered by motion or external inputs. The Axis Camera Station utilizes camera-based motion detection to save bandwidth and disk space. Furthermore, manual recording can be directly triggered in the live view interface.
The Axis Camera Station has been developed with focus on ease-of-use and intuitive handling, offering efficient management of the cameras and video in the system. It features recording search with timeline visualization and export functionality. Also, support for site maps makes it possible to render a full overview of the monitored area as well as gain quick access to any Axis network camera in the installation.
PTZ and dome cameras can be controlled using a joystick or mouse, offering responsive and accurate control of the pan, tilt, and zoom functionality. Digital PTZ support is available in both live view and playback. The Windows client can be installed on a computer to enable remote viewing and control from anywhere on the corporate network or the Internet.
