The new version of the free software client offers additional features to improve usability, mobile viewing and storage options, and will be on display from
AXIS Camera Companion 2.10 includes support for 360-degree overview recording with de-warped views when zooming into the image. This allows users to take advantage of the benefits from Axis' 360-degree fixed dome HDTV cameras, providing great overview and scene details with only one camera
While most AXIS Camera Companion solutions record video directly to SD-cards inside Axis network cameras, the new release also includes support for easier integration of network-attached storage (NAS) when increased storage capacity is needed. A set-up wizard makes it possible to integrate any NAS device on the market and, for further simplicity, Axis has included automatic configuration in the software client for select NAS products.
'Usability is a key feature of AXIS Camera Companion, and the latest version provides end-customers with more capabilities to fully leverage the benefits of IP video for their small surveillance systems,' said
Additional features of AXIS Camera Companion 2.10 include:
Multi-view streaming to increase surveillance efficiency for multi-megapixel cameras
Search filter for easy navigation to different sites
Visual system status notification
Windows 8 touch screen support
Third-party apps for viewing live and recorded video from EyeSpyFX and BrightSentry
Automatic NAS configuration currently compatible with units from QNAP
Unlike traditional surveillance installations, AXIS Camera Companion does not require a central recording device - such as a digital video recorder (DVR), network video recorder (NVR) or even a computer - to run. All video can be recorded onto a standard SD-card in each camera, and the cameras keep recording even if the network fails. The cameras can be powered over the network, eliminating the need for separate power cables. These three factors reduce cost, simplify installation and make the system more robust with no single point of failure. To further protect customer's investments, existing analogue cameras can be integrated via video encoders.
