Axis introduces comprehensive video management software solution

Axis Communications today announced the introduction of the Axis Camera Station in Arabic, Turkish and Farsi to offer comprehensive video management software designed for small- to mid-sized systems in the Middle East. Installed on a standard PC, the Axis Camera station is ideal for retail shops, hotels and schools. It offers easy installation and setup with automatic camera discovery, a powerful Configuration Wizard and efficient management of the Axis network video products in the system.

According to Baraa Al Akkad, Regional Manager, Axis Communications Middle East, “AXIS Camera Station in combination with Axis network video products offers many benefits compared with analog surveillance systems based on Digital Video Recorders. With installation on a standard PC, customers can take advantage of excellent image quality, cost effectiveness and scalability with reduced response times and simplified upgrades through an easy and intuitive user interface.”

The Windows client of AXIS Camera Station can be installed on any PC, enabling remote viewing and control of one or several video surveillance sites from anywhere with the help of a standard Internet connection.

Axis Camera station helps to view and record high quality video and audio from up to 50 cameras with H.264, MPEG-4 and Motion JPEG 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. Through this software, scheduled and event-driven recordings are triggered by motion or external inputs. AXIS Camera Station utilizes camera based motion detection to save bandwidth and disk space.
