Stream URL with storage profile enabled using default values for all other settings:
Stream URL with storage profile with typical parameters asking for a resolution and framerate:
The new parameter "videozprofile" choose between "storage" or "classic". If "storage" is selected the stream will use so called B-Frames (Bidirectional predicted inter frames) to reduce the bitrate even further but with additional 2 frames latency. If "videozprofile" is not given, classic will be used as the default (If not overridden by the new global configuration parameter)
Example of a stream URL with classic detailed Zipstream parameter control not using any profile:
The rest of the stream parameters and the one used above are in detail described and explained in the Zipstream section in the VAPIX Library.
All modern cameras from Axis support Zipstream, which can be verified with the Product selector, or by using VAPIX and checking for the parameter Properties.Zipstream.Zipstream=yes
Different products implement different Zipstream features. PTZ cameras have special pan/tilt/zoom optimizations, Thermal cameras are tuned for optimal storage of heat map images and encoders are optimized for smaller resolutions. To learn more about the different Zipstream features see the Zipstream white paper.
You can use AXIS Site Designer to predict the storage need for video recordings from Axis cameras.
