The rapid evolution of the award-winning Axis camera companion continues, and the provider in network video solutions has announced a major upgrade of the free software client that doubles the recording capacity when using SD memory cards. The new release also includes new features such as multiple user access levels and joystick support.

“Axis camera companion has been very well received by the market. Until November 2012 we have registered over 30,000 downloads of the software. This indicates that users really appreciate the simplicity and the superb HDTV image quality offered by Axis camera companion,” says Peter Friberg, Director of System and Services at Axis Communications. “By also adding support for 64 GB SDXC cards in all network video products with SD card capabilities our customers will benefit from the doubled recording capacity, which means that each camera can record over one month of video in HDTV quality.”

In addition to support for 64 GB SDXC cards, the new version includes support for administrator, operator and viewer user access levels, so that system access for different users can be restricted. Joystick support for efficient control of Axis PTZ network cameras is also available.

Axis camera companion allows small business owners to use HDTV network cameras to help them clearly identify intruders, shoplifters and other incidents. Video can be viewed live and recordings played back from anywhere – onsite or remotely over the Internet. The system supports motion detection and PTZ control. Video clips and snapshots can be easily exported to colleagues and authorities, and the system supports third-party apps for viewing live and recorded video on leading smartphones and tablets, such as iPhone, iPad and Android.

Unlike analog surveillance installations, Axis camera companion does not require a central recording device – a DVR, NVR, or even a computer. All images are recorded onto a standard SD memory card in each camera, and the cameras keep recording even if the network fails. The cameras are powered over the network, eliminating the need for separate power cables. This reduces cost, simplifies installation, and makes the system more robust as there is no single point of failure. To further protect customers’ investments, existing analog cameras can be integrated via video encoders.
