Axis Communications, the world leader in network video, has launched an improved version of AXIS Camera Management, a powerful tool for installation and management of Axis network video products. The tool supports central management of Axis cameras in a single or multi-site system, enabling both easy distribution of applications to multiple cameras and efficient management of network video cameras for security installers and system administrators.
AXIS Camera Management is designed for efficient management of network video installations that use Axis network video products. The tool can be scaled to handle thousands of Axis network cameras and video encoders and by implementing the tool at multiple sites, all cameras can be managed from one central location. Based on standard network protocols and methods and with an intuitive user interface, AXIS Camera Management allows installers and administrators to easily configure, maintain and upgrade single or multiple video units.
"Efficient management of cameras is key to any large security installation and is an important part of our total camera offering. Being able to offer a powerful tool that provides one central point of management further strengthens our offering to system administrators," says Peter Friberg, Axis' Director of System and Services.
AXIS Camera Management can automatically find cameras and other Axis video devices on the network and set IP addresses, configure multiple devices and show their connection status. To simplify device maintenance, the tool automatically provides information about the latest firmware available and downloads and distributes upgrades to the relevant devices. Users can perform sequential or parallel firmware upgrades for multiple network video products.
In this new version, AXIS Camera Management also supports AXIS Camera Application Platform, an open application platform where third-party developed applications can be easily installed and registered to selected Axis network cameras and video encoders.
AXIS Camera Management 3.10, replaces AXIS Camera Management 2.00. The tool is compatible with all Axis video products with firmware versions of 4.40 or higher.
