Axis Doubles Edge Storage Size

Author: John Honovich, Published on Nov 14, 2012

While edge recording has quickly become one of the top trends in the industry, one of the biggest limitations is the maximum size of SD card storage supported. Most IP cameras, including Axis, maxed out at 32GB SD cards even though significantly larger cards are widely available commercially. Now, as part of its next Axis Camera Companion release, Axis is doubling support to 64GB. In this note, we dig into the technical details and analyze the impact this may have.
