Smart codecs are one of the big trends in the industry now.
Axis was the first manufacturer to launch a smart codec, releasing Zipstream in Spring 2015, but since then they have been followed by others, including Hikvision H.264+, Panasonic Smart Coding, Dahua Smart H.264+, and more.
Now, Axis released their second generation of Zipstream to push bitrate savings even further, adding Dynamic frames per second (FPS) and higher dynamic compression levels.
We tested this new enhanced Zipstream on three Axis cameras (M, P and Q series) to see how it performed. In this report, we share our results and Axis' competitive outlook versus other Smart Codecs.
