Axis ACC v3 + SanDisk OEM

Author: John Honovich, Published on Apr 09, 2015

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.
