Axis Camera Companion now on the cloud

The Axis Camera Companion upgrade includes easy site sharing, achieved by providing basic information about sites and cameras using a free cloud-based service and other valuable features such as digital zoom functionality.

The Axis Camera Companion solution consists of three parts: standard Axis network cameras or video encoders with edge storage support for recording onto SD-cards, standard third-party network equipment such as routers, switches, SD cards and NAS devices.

The new version also includes support for digital zoom in live and recorded video. Customers can now take advantage of the increasing range of HDTV cameras, as well as support for the panoramic views from Axis's 360° fixed dome cameras, providing great overview and details with only one camera.

Axis Camera Companion allows small business owners to easily navigate to different sites and by the use of HDTV network cameras clearly identify intruders, shoplifters and other incidents. Video can be viewed live and recordings played back from anywhere – onsite or remotely over the Internet.

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.

Further features of Axis Camera Companion include:
- Third-party apps for viewing live and recorded video and for integration of Public View Monitors for loss prevention on leading smartphones and tablets, such as iPhone, iPad and Android.
- Support for 64 GB SDXC cards in all network video products with SD card capabilities
- Administrator, operator and viewer user access levels
- Support for motion detection and pan/tilt/zoom control and one-way audio
- Easy and secure export of video and snapshots from single or multiple cameras
