Axis Zipstream technology preserves all the important forensic detail you need, while lowering bandwidth and storage requirements by an average of 50% or more.

What’s your challenge? Storage and bandwidth

Zipstream doesn’t just limit bitrate. Instead, three kinds of intelligent algorithms ensure that relevant forensic information is identified, recorded, and sent in full resolution and at full frame rate. In other words, our proprietary Dynamic ROI, Dynamic GOP, and Dynamic FPS work together in real-time to preserve faces, tattoos, license plate numbers, and more. With this cost-effective technology you get to keep the resolution and frame rate, enjoy prolonged retention time, and store a whole lot less—all without sacrificing valuable information. Furthermore, it’s compatible with a wide range of media players, so it’s easy to playback video. 

It’s getting better all the time

First launched in 2015, Zipstream just keeps improving. Right from the start, the technology was different because it identified and preserved areas of forensic interest. Today, it’s even better at differentiating between important and less important data, and it’s even more efficient. For instance, with one click you can quickly enable storage profile and enjoy the optimal level of Zipstream for your video storage—regardless of the VMS. Every time we upgrade Zipstream, we make it available in firmware updates. So, your Axis cameras will always perform at their very best, with the lowest possible bandwidth and storage requirements.
