At ISC West today in Las Vegas, Axis Communications announced a new generation of AXIS Camera Station, the company’s comprehensive video management software for monitoring, playback and event management of up to 50 Axis network cameras or video encoder channels. AXIS Camera Station 3.0 features an enhanced user interface and support for the H.264 video compression technique, which allows improved image quality, simplified deployment and management of large systems and better cost-efficiency.
“For many users, especially in small- to-medium-sized installations, it is vital that the application is quick to install and easy to configure and use,” said Fredrik Nilsson, general manager, Axis Communications Inc. “The new user-friendly interface and simplified management of AXIS Camera Station 3.0 is our response to these user demands. In addition, the support for H.264 in AXIS Camera Station will allow users to build cost-efficient video surveillance systems that deliver unparalleled video image quality.”
AXIS Camera Station offers an open architecture and comes with a well-documented API for easy integration with other systems like point-of-sales and access control. AXIS Camera Station will be available through Axis’ distribution channels in April 2008. Suggested retail price for a 4-camera base license is $649, while a 10-camera base license is $999. Interested parties attending ISC West can obtain more information about this and other Axis products at booth 13601.
