AXIS Camera Station

Flexible surveillance software for Axis network video
(Now with multilingual support)

AXIS Camera Station 1005 

AXIS Camera Station is an IP-Surveillance software that works with Axis network cameras and video servers to provide video monitoring, recording and event management functions.

With the AXIS Camera Station installed on your Windows PC, you can monitor your cameras, and at the same time, record high quality, digital video either continuously or on schedule, alarm and/or motion detection. The software's motion detection feature works by retrieving an image every specified second and comparing the differences in a specified area of the image.

The AXIS Camera Station offers easy ways to search for recorded events. In addition, the software has a multi-view playback feature that enables a user to view simultaneous recordings from different cameras to get a comprehensive picture of an event. 

Remote viewing and playback are also possible with the use of a Web browser or with the AXIS Camera Station's Windows client. The Windows client also enables remote administration of the software. The software allows for scalability, with easy addition of licenses for up to 25 cameras (either networked or analog cameras with video servers attached--see list of compatible products below).

AXIS Image Enhancer:

With an additional license, the AXIS Image Enhancer component of the software can be activated. AXIS Image Enhancer improves the clarity of images taken in poor conditions such as fog, smoke, rain or snow. Applied to live or recorded color video, it delivers real-time results and displays visual details that would otherwise have been difficult to see. View details below.

Features:

  • View and record live video from multiple cameras simultaneously         
  • Includes several recording modes: continuous, scheduled, on alarm and/or on motion detection.         
  • Supports, additionally, the video motion detection feature built into some Axis cameras, which saves network bandwidth as images are only sent when motion is detected         
  • High quality recordings         
  • Optional AXIS Image Enhancer component for improving image clarity in poor visibility conditions such as fog, smoke, rain and snow         
  • No recording limitation in software

The AXIS Camera Station software runs as a Windows Service in the background on a dedicated PC. It supports up to 25 cameras and allows live viewing of up to 16 cameras simultaneously. Since remote viewing and playback are possible with the use of a Web browser or with the AXIS Camera Station's Windows client, there is no need to be at the PC that is doing the actual recording.

AXIS Image Enhancer is a remarkable software that improves the quality of images taken in conditions such as fog, smoke, rain and snow. Applied to live or recorded color video, it delivers real-time results and displays visual details that would otherwise have been difficult to see under poor visibility conditions.

Based on advanced mathematical algorithm, the AXIS Image Enhancer provides results far superior to simply adjusting brightness and contrast. Video is shown without distorting elements. 

The AXIS Image Enhancer is ideal for remote monitoring or surveillance situations where image clarity is needed for a safe and smooth operation, such as securing parking lots, harbors, airports, road tolls and other facilities.

The unique AXIS Image Enhancer functionality within the AXIS Camera Station software is activated with a separate license key. It works with color digital or analog video sources, operates with all Axis network cameras and video servers except MPEG-2 products and supports full frame rate for live viewing. 

Features:

  • Improves image quality in fog, smoke, rain and snow; extend visibility in harbors, airports, roads and tunnels         
  • Superior results compared with brightness/contrast adjustments; optimal image enhancement is achieved with video taken between dawn and dusk         
  • For use with live or recorded color only video (Supports all Axis network cameras and video servers except MPEG-2 products)         
  • Ideal for outdoor cameras         
  • Add-on functionality that is integrated into AXIS Camera Station (version 1.20 and higher) and activated with a separate license key         
  • License keys can be purchased in packages of 1 and 5 from your nearest reseller. One AXIS Image Enhancer license is required per video channel.
