Mobile NVR (Q8108-R) Examined

By: John Honovich, Published on Jan 31, 2010

Based on details from an interview with Axis, this update provides new details on the Axis Q8108-R mobile NVR.

The Q8108-R represents Axis expansion into the mobile video surveillance market. The appliance supports up to 8 IP cameras (no analog unless via encoder), a built-in PoE switch for powering cameras, ruggedized form factor, IP65 rating (dust tight, protects against water jets).

Here are details on other interesting elements of the appliance:

  • Axis will customize this unit for partners: According to Axis, "This unit shall be seen as a development/evaluation unit for partners developing their own solutions and for customers who wants to evaluate certain functionality before placing a project order of the required options." Specific options available include, "LAN/GSM/UMTS/HSDPA,GPS and accelerometer."
  • Includes a Li-Ion battery that provides up to 1 minute of battery back-up. After 1 minute of power loss, the appliance will gracefully and automatically shutdown.
  • While Axis Camera Station is provided as the default, partners can use 3rd party VMS software on the appliance or use third party management systems to control units using Axis Camera Station.
  • MSRP of the NVR unit including an 8-channel version of AXIS Camera Station, but excluding HDD is $3799.

While traditional mobile solutions use analog cameras, Axis looks to be positioning simplified installation (through PoE) and higher quality video (through their mobile megapixel cameras such as the M3114) as differentiators. Given the price of the unit and that of megapixel cameras, this is likely to be one of the more expensive and premium options in this market.
