Happy Birthday IP Video
In September of 1996, Axis Communications launched the world’s first IP camera at a tradeshow in the U.S. At the time, the camera was intended for Web attraction – but it marked the first step in the shift from analog CCTV to network video, which today makes up an estimated $2.5B of the total surveillance market.

To recognize 15 years of the network camera, Axis invites all ASIS show attendees to a birthday party in its booth #2137 on Tuesday, September 20, 2011 at 3:30 pm to toast to the past, present, and future of IP video with Martin Gren, Axis co-founder and inventor of the network camera. Attendees can enter to win a signed AXIS M1011 Network Camera and enjoy refreshments while celebrating with the company.

Axis Booth #2137: The Driving Force of Network Video on Display
Axis will demonstrate its latest innovations in network video n booth #2137, including the palm-sized AXIS M5014 PTZ Dome Network Camera, AXIS P3367-V/-VE Fixed Dome Network Cameras with P-Iris control, AXIS Q1602/-E Network Camera with Lightfinder technology, and IP migration strategies with AXIS M70 and P72 Series Video Encoders.

Also in the booth, Axis experts will be on hand to walk attendees through a product timeline that showcases network video innovations over the last 15 years. As a toast to the future of network video, Axis has added a new low-light demonstration pod alongside the popular hosted video command center, IP migration solutions encoder rack, and Axis Police Car.
