Video Management Systems (VMS) – video recording, playback and live view solutions used for video surveillance. Examples of VMS solutions:
Network Video Recorder (NVR) – a combination of hardware and software for easy installation.
Hybrid NVR – supports both analog and network cameras enabling use of analog cameras in a network solution.
Software – a software solution installed, for example on a server on a local network, a cloud service, a network camera, etc.
Management and Maintenance – solutions where you can manage and maintain devices connected to the network, sometimes including management of the network itself.
Access Control System – Example of Access Control Systems are:
Solutions with support for Axis Access Control products
Access Control through video analytics such as face recognition and License Plate Recognition.
Analytics – solutions where for example video or audio analytics are used to extract different types of information to solve specific problems, for example surveillance issues or business analytics.
Examples of analytics applications are:
Abandon object detection
License plate recognition
Traffic congestion detection
Live Streaming Solution
Examples of live streaming solutions are:
Web cast solutions such as live event broadcasting, web attraction, etc.
Remote video/audio such as distance education, distance diagnostics, conferencing, etc.
Other solution – for example:
Building Management System (BMS)
Physical Security Information System (PSIM) – integrates multiple security applications and devices and controls them through one comprehensive user interface.
Alarm Receiving Center (ARC) and Central Station Event Monitoring
Client/Server based solution – a solution where the software is installed on a server and you can use a client (for example a web browser), to control settings and recordings, to watch live and recorded video, etc. The main benefits are that you are in total control of the full system and that installation is very easy (for example an NVR).
Hosted/Cloud solution – a solution where video is recorded remotely on the Internet. A hosting provider hosts the servers where the video is recorded and a client is used to connect to your video recordings. Main benefits are that installation is very easy, no costs and maintenance of servers, remotely recorded video prevents theft of the recording device on site, etc.
Edge solution (ACAP application) – a solution where the application is running onboard the Axis device. It can either be an application running partly on the edge and partly on a server, or an application running fully embedded on the Axis device. Main benefits are less bandwidth usage, easy to scale, lower requirements for server performance or no additional server needed, lower costs, etc.
Smartphone/tablet solution (Apple iOS, Android, Microsoft) – a solution where you can use your smartphone or smart touch tablet as a client, i.e. for live view video from your cameras, to access and control your recoded video, etc. Main benefits are easy access and control.
Many applications are general in the sense that they can be used for many or all type of industry segments but some applications are specialized for a certain segment. Use this search option to find solutions which are optimized or specialized for a certain industry segment.
