Important Developments in Axis Hosted Video

By John Honovich, Published on Aug 04, 2009

In our test and analysis of Axis hosted video, 2 important developments should be noted. Axis hosted video offering supports on-site NAS devices that provide local storage. Secondly, in a few months, all Axis cameras will have STS/AVHS firmware pre-loaded. Both of these developments are important steps forward in increasing the competitiveness of Axis' solution against traditional video surveillance. I'd encourage you to read the details of the test and analysis.

[While supporting NAS devices and pre-loading the firmware has helped, the overall high costs and limited functionality continue to hold back adoption. Use of the newer free Axis Camera Companion looks to be quickly surpassing that of AVHS.
