With AXIS Camera Companion all video is recorded onto a standard SD memory card in each network camera or video encoder. Therefore, unlike analog surveillance installations prevalent in small security systems around the world, AXIS Camera Companion does not require a central recording device – such as a digital video recorder (DVR) – or even a computer to operate. This dramatically decreases the cost of an IP video surveillance solution for small systems.

Since AXIS Camera Companion creates a self-contained video surveillance solution connected by a simple switch or router, the cameras will continue to record even in an event of a network failure. Additionally, since the devices can be powered over the network, the need for separate power cables is eliminated, which reduces cost, simplifies installation and makes the system more robust with no single point of failure. Lastly, for users of working CCTV cameras who want to protect their existing investment, these analog devices can be digitized and integrated into an AXIS Camera Companion IP video system using video encoders.

“As of April 2013 we have registered more than 60,000 downloads of the free software client [since March 2012],” said Peter Friberg, Axis’ director of system and services. “This indicates that users really appreciate the simplicity offered by AXIS Camera Companion and the superb HDTV image quality [when migrating from analog to IP video].”

AXIS Camera Companion allows business owners who need a small camera count surveillance system to install an affordable IP video solution that can use HDTV- and megapixel-quality network cameras to clearly identify intruders, shoplifters and other incidents. Video can be viewed live and recordings played back onsite or remotely over the Internet.

In 2012, AXIS Camera Companion won ASIS Accolades’ Security’s Best Award and the ESX Maximum Impact Award as the Best Video Surveillance System in the U.S., as well as the Futurshop 2012 Awards for Best Security Product in Spain.

The majority of Axis network cameras and video encoders with firmware 5.40 or later support AXIS Camera Companion and are available for purchase via Axis’ security system integration partners.
