Design great systems

When you use ACAP, you also have access to a list of tested, well-documented application program interfaces (APIs). These APIs are optimized for Axis devices and let you take full advantage of Axis hardware and software. Together with software development kits (SDKs) based on open-source components, they facilitate interoperability, scalability, and easy migration of your apps to execute on Axis devices. In addition, your apps will be able to run and process video directly on Axis devices, which eliminates the need for separate servers for processing and reduces storage, bandwidth, costs, and system complexity.
