Since Axis began in 1984,  they’ve spent the last 20 years innovating network video and have developed a high level of dual expertise in both this area and in IT, one of their key strengths.

An eye on the future

As the drive for a smarter, safer world intensifies, Axis stays busy developing increasingly-sophisticated products – continuously making advances in light sensitivity, dynamics, color reproduction and resolution in their network cameras.

Additionally, they continue to build on their thermal network camera technology and 180/360-degree panoramic network cameras.ASTOR platinum

Moving forward, physical access control is another key focus for Axis, introducing a new level of freedom and flexibility in the market, something which stems from the same open IP philosophy they pioneered in video surveillance.

Axis Communications Perimeter Defender, was recognized as the 2016 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program Platinum Winner for Best Perimeter Protection System.

As new markets and possibilities open up, Axis is at the forefront.

Axis currently holds 218 active patent and registered design families.

IP video is expected to grow 16% each year by 2019. IP cameras offer you the capabilities of people counting, motion detection, license plate recognition, heat mapping, facial recognition and noise detection.

IP cameras can also integrate with items like access control, server, cameras, office & mobile phone, tablets, displays and fire alarms.

The value of quality

Security cameras are more often than not placed in environments where they’re subjected to extreme wind, rain and vandalism. At the same time, it’s critical that the cameras keep working – lives could depend on them.

Axis cameras have been subjected to the hardest tests to make sure they’re resilient against water, vibrations, impacts – and more.

At Axis, they test every single product to the extreme – against water, humidity, vandalism, vibrations, harsh temperatures and more. So, you can rest assured they’ll always perform to their very best – no matter what you throw at them.

Axis continuously develops new technologies and smart solutions that add value to your security and surveillance installation.

Our technologies focus on enhancing:

  • Image usability
  • Reliability and quality
  • Ease of installation and use
  • Intelligent applications and analytics
  • System integration
  • Efficient operation in all conditions
  • Secure network communication

For example, effectively minimizing effects from vibration and shaking.

A surveillance camera mounted in an exposed location such as on a high pole or a street sign near a busy road, can be shaken by winds or passing traffic, which will blur the video.

In these situations, Electronic image stabilization, a feature in Axis network cameras which greatly improves video quality in situations where a camera is subject to vibrations, provides smooth and comfortable live viewing.
