Axis ACC v3 + SanDisk OEM

By John Honovich, Published Apr 09, 2015, 12:00am EDT (Info+)

The most talked about new release in 2012 was Axis Camera Companion, aiming to eliminate traditional recorders and expand Axis into the low end of the market.

Unfortunately, significant reliability problems, handicapped remote access and new competition has made Axis Camera Companion a dissapointment.

Now, Axis' new Version 3 aims to solve their key limitations.

In this note, we examine what is new in Version 3, how it solves those problems and how this changes Camera Companion's competitive positioning.

The latest "official" ACC version on the Axis website is 2.21.015, released in December of 2014. Is there a direct link somewhere to the 3.X version? I'd like to test out the "Axis Secure Remote Access" feature. As an Integrator, I get asked about the remote function often.
