Axis Network Video Products Now Offered Through EMC

Chelmsford, Mass. – Axis Communications, the global leader in the network video market, announced today that Axis network video products are now being offered through the EMC Select Program as part of the EMC Surveillance Analysis and Management Solution (SAMS). SAMS provides advanced video content management, analytical capability, and legacy integration through a custom professional services engagement, combining hardware and software that accelerate the storage, archiving, fast searching and analysis of petabytes of surveillance data.

As part of the EMC Surveillance Analysis and Management Solution, customers will be able to deploy a full range of Axis network cameras and video servers, such as the AXIS 221 Day & Night Network Camera and the AXIS 210A Network Camera with built-in Power over Ethernet and bidirectional audio.

“Companies are increasingly migrating their security and surveillance systems to IT-based platforms,” said Gregg Therkalsen, EMC vice president of Business Continuity and Corporate Security Solutions. “We’re pleased to offer Axis’ network cameras and video servers with EMC SAMS, allowing us to help meet our customer demands with high-quality network video technology.”

The Commonwealth of Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) recently installed Axis camera technology through the implementation of SAMS, which improves the security of its 30 residential facilities. The SAMS solution enables the DJJ to ensure a safe environment for the education and treatment of youth committed to its care while providing increased accountability and protection of facility staff.

“IT partners such as EMC have been critical in the advancement of network video technology on an enterprise level,” said Fredrik Nilsson, general manager of Axis Communications. “Through our partnership with EMC, Axis customers will have a single source they can rely on for professional services, storage, archiving, searching and analysis of their digital surveillance data.”

The EMC Select Program makes it easier for customers to acquire key components to complete their EMC storage solutions and enables businesses to implement an information lifecycle management (ILM) strategy.
