AXIS 2401+: System overview

The AXIS 2401+ Video Server is a cost-effective solution for adding digital functionality to traditional CCTV systems. The AXIS 2401+ allows for video output to an analog CCTV monitor as well as to the computer network.

Providing video for analog and IP networks

Designed for professional surveillance applications, the AXIS 2401+ Video Server connects to one analog camera and provides a connection to an Ethernet network, in addition to a video loop-through port for an analog monitor.  

The AXIS 2401+ transforms analog video into high quality digital images for video transmission over intranet networks or the Internet. This enables users to view live images from any networked computer with a standard Web browser. The AXIS 2401+ provides greater memory, increased performance and a higher level of customization than the original AXIS 2401.

Easy to install and use, the AXIS 2401+ provides a comprehensive, single-box solution that enables you to have a high performance surveillance application up and running in minutes. Your system can be as open or closed as needed. Access to live images can be restricted to only authorized users through several levels of password protection.

For surveillance installations that require many AXIS 2401+, blade versions of the video servers are available for use with the AXIS Rack Solution.
