In the analogue days, analogue cameras were connected over an infrastructure of coaxial cables to a DVR, which functioned as the storage solution. The DVR came pre configured with a basic software solution for managing the system, viewing video etc. This was achieved by connecting a screen, a mouse and/or a keyboard to the DVR. As the system was supplied together with the DVR, it was proprietary and offered limited functionality.
In an IP (network video) system, the cameras are connected over a standard computer Ethernet network such as LAN, WAN or the Internet. Video is either stored on a central computer server/PC, a Network Attached Storage (NAS) unit, or on SD cards inside each camera. A web browser can be used to view live video from a camera, but for handling recording and other functionality in the system, a video management software solution is needed. The video management software can be installed on the same PC as the storage, or on a separate PC. In some systems, the cameras have enough video management software built into themselves so that the user only needs smartphone/tablet apps to view live and recorded video.
Axis network cameras and encoders have an open interface which has made it very easy for third-party vendors of video management systems to integrate the cameras with their systems. Today, Axis’ Application Development Partner (ADP) program comprises over 800 companies that provide video management solutions for all kinds of needs: from very small to large, enterprise solutions with thousands of cameras. In addition, ADPs offer many specialised solutions for various industry needs or geographical requirements.
Axis also offers its own selection of video management solutions that complements the ADP solutions by addressing in particular the needs of small installation, the increasing requests for hosted video solutions (cloud solutions) and requests from customers demanding a single-vendor solution. This strategy has allowed Axis to provide its customers with four main alternative solutions for video management. Regardless of the choice, the customer can rest assured that the solution will work together with Axis cameras, video encoders, and system accessories:
