April 23, 2021
Later this year, Axis Communications will release AXIS Camera Application Platform (ACAP) version 4. It brings new opportunities for developers looking to build solutions for Axis devices. It strengthens Axis engagement in computer-vision-based solutions and opens for a broader offering of applications.

Axis continues to bring even more capable devices to market. The powerful capabilities, including deep learning, in Axis devices increase the incentive to move parts of a solution to the edge.

ACAP version 4 aims to lower barriers for new developers coming from server and cloud environments while continuing to support existing partners.

It leverages known software development tools and components as well as industry-standard APIs and efficiently reuses components from Axis and other sources. It brings further support for high-level programing languages that will significantly reduce both proof-of-concept builds and time needed to reach production-ready code.

Key features include:

  • Support for running containers on the device  
  • Adoption of known open, de-facto software frameworks and industry-standard APIs 
  • Support for high-level programing languages
  • Deep learning toolchain and API 

Supporting most Axis products and hardware, ACAP version 4 bridges the gap between edge and server or cloud and allows developers to use the edge for building faster, more scalable, and more efficient solutions that fully utilize Axis devices.

Axis partners and end customers will benefit from all of this. With ACAP version 4, they both gain access to better possibilities for creating and delivering applications. Axis partners can stay focused on their customers and on creating solutions based on their unique needs.
