Built-in processing power

AXIS 242S IV Video Server is a one-channel video server equipped with a DSP (Digital Signal Processor), dedicated to processing advanced algorithms in intelligent video applications.  Since video and audio analyses are performed inside the video server, only the essential information needs to be sent over the network.

Embedded intelligent video applications

Together with downloadable application software from Axis and its partners, the AXIS 242S IV is a powerful tool for securing shops, supermarkets and properties.

Axis' open policy ensures simple and fast integration with most analog PTZ cameras on the market by including software drivers for more than 25 different analog cameras, including products from American Dynamics, Bosch, Canon, Panasonic, Pelco, Philips, Samsung, Sensormatic and Sony.
