Axis Digital Autotracking Tested

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Sep 16, 2015

As camera resolutions continues to climb, the likelihood that you will ever display any camera at full resolution on a monitor declines. This is even more improbable for the normal configuration of 4, 9 or 16 cameras on screen.

How do you help operators handle this?

Axis has a free app for that.

We tested the Axis Digital Autotracking app on the 1080p Axis M1125 and the 4K P1428-E to see how well it performed in indoor and outdoor areas, day and night.
