Axis Communications announces AXIS Audio Manager Edge, a major upgrade to the embedded software management system onboard Axis network speakers. The upgraded software, developed for managing up to 200 speakers in up to 20 zones, is suitable for small to medium sites with relatively straightforward needs. Free upgrades are available for all previously installed Axis network speakers. The new software upgrade enables an all-in-one audio system that is easy to set-up, configure and use.
The network speakers from Axis are complete high-quality audio systems in a single unit, perfect to deter unwanted activity, warn off bad actors detected by security cameras or to use live or scheduled voice messages. The embedded software AXIS Audio Manager Edge provides easy content management that allows users to mix live or pre-recorded announcements, ads, and background music to suit various needs. It features preconfigured rules for easy setup, configuration, and operation, and it includes straightforward scheduling for weekly content planning.
Separate access rights for administrators, content managers, and others mean users can assign only the necessary permissions to individuals, lowering the risk of error and system failure. A built-in health monitoring system and a dashboard displaying system status ensure that users quickly become aware of any problems that require addressing.
Key benefits include:
- Built-in audio management system requiring no extra hardware
- Manage up to 200 speakers and 20 zones
- Mix live or pre-recorded announcements with ads and background music
- Easy to schedule and set up weekly content
- Know your system is working with built-in health monitoring
For audio systems including more than one site, the cloud-based multi-site management service AXIS Audio Manager Center will be available in Q1 2021, offering system scalability up to several thousands of sites.
