3 AXIS Camera Station - overview Optional viewing, playback andadministrationOptional viewingand playbackAXIS Camera station overviewThe system runs as a background service on a Window PC with XP Professional, 2000 or 2003 ServerOn the machine that runs the background service also saves the recorded images on disk. On this machine all normal operations can be done. Viewing, playback and administration.Optionally a free windows client can be installed on any PC on the network for remote viewing, playback and administration. This means that the ‘Server’ can be placed anywhere like in the server, room, basement etc.Out side the local network the windows client can also be used for viewing, playback and administration.Finally web access is possible for viewing and playback from any web browser.Viewing, playbackand administrationBackground serviceRecording databaseOptional viewing, playbackand administration
4 AXIS Camera Station – product goal Why did we develop this product?To provide the market with a generic surveillance software for video recording, monitoring and event handling specially designed for Axis network video productsFilling a gap in our current software offeringsSince the functionality of the software that our partners provide has evolved to become highly advanced and specialized, we have seen a clear customer need for a general recording and video management application. The previously released AXIS Camera Recorder has fulfilled this need for the mid section of the entry-level up to the lower parts of the pro-level markets. However, for the mid section of the pro-level market there is a global need for an additional surveillance solution from Axis, addressing some of the limitations in the current AXIS Camera Recorder. The current AXIS Camera Recorder is targeted at event driven surveillance, where recording is done when an event or motion is detected. The AXIS Camera Recorder is less suitable for installations where continuous recording is needed due to limitations in the size of the image database.
5 AXIS Camera Station – product positioning Partner SolutionsHigh-EndEntry levelUpper Pro-levelLower Pro-levelMilestone XProtectAXIS Camera StationAXIS Camera RecorderAXIS Camera Station is a complementary product for Axis network cameras and video servers. By offering this component of an upper entry-level to mid/upper pro-level surveillance system, Axis will simplify the solution availability, installation and usage of a true IP-based video monitoring system for many of our current and potential customers.The current AXIS Camera Recorder and the new AXIS Camera Station will only have limited effect on our partners today as the solution from Axis target the general market, while the partner solutions mainly target local or specific needs not supported by the Axis offerings.Sales may very well occur also in other segments, but product design and marketing efforts are based on this product positioning.ACE
6 AXIS Camera Station – target market Key channelsPrimary channelIT-channel including BBDs, catalogs and IT-networks integratorsSecondary channelValue Added DistributorsSystem IntegratorsKey marketsLow to mid end security and surveillance installationsParticular suitable for Retail, Education and Transportation segmentsAXIS Camera Station will be available through all Axis distribution channels. The primary target is though the IT-channel including BBDs, catalogs and IT-network integrators. Axis solution providers and system integrators focusing on the security or production monitoring industry will also offer the product.AXIS Camera Station will be available on all markets where Axis network cameras and video servers are sold. The product is targeted to be used from the upper part of the entry-level to the mid/upper parts in the pro-level segment as a generic surveillance solution, in any of our vertical markets and in particular for Retail, Education and Transportation. The first release will be in English. It is the intention to offer support for major languages such as German, Italian, French, Spanish, and Portuguese later on.
7 AXIS Camera Station – target customer Business customerWith IT know howWith a need for local video surveillance and recording of videoUpgrade his analogue systemCorporations with a multitude of local operations without the need for central management but with an interest to standardize on one solution, available on a global level.Owner of Axis network video productsNew customers of Axis network cameras & video serversThe target buyer would be a business customer needing a pro-level surveillance system or who would like to upgrade his existing analog system with an IP based. He has IT know-how and a need for video surveillance with video recording functionality. He would be relying on the IT-manager and Building manager in his buying process. The typical buyer would be the person responsible for company security.As the system is targeted towards the pro-level segment there will probably not be a dedicated person monitoring the cameras at all times. It is more likely that the system will be working in the background and the images will be viewed live randomly or when looking for specific events. The person viewing will typically be an office clerk, receptionist etc., and the person checking the recorded material will be a person responsible for the building/facility security, or the shop owner. The user does not necessarily set up the system; he would rely on the IT manager or building/security manager for this.

PC client can also perform administration.Recorded material can easily be retrieved for immediate control or action, without preventing new events from being recorded concurrentlyRecordings can be transferred at user-defined intervals to offsite storage, for safe backupFully integrated duplex audio support enables real time direct sound and voice communications with the camera locationFully integrated network support for Pan, Tilt and Zoom cameras simplifies operation and saves cost by eliminating the need for separate joystick hardware or wiring
11 AXIS Camera Station - key benefits Benefits when compared to analogue systemsQuality of recordingsFast retrieval of recordingsAbility to easily duplicate and distribute videoEase of maintenance – No changing of tapesPre/post alarm recordingAXIS Camera Station provides several key features over traditional analog and DVR based systems, such as;Quality of recorded material, which is maintained during distribution and copyingFast retrieval of recorded material, no need to rewind/forward tapes to selected time/dateProvide pre-alarm, i.e. the ability to view important video prior to an alarm without the need for permanent recording.As Networked Video Systems utilizes standard Ethernet networks, cabling is in most places already available. If not, cost for installing a new network is not higher than for an analogue network, but can be utilized for other systems as well.A networked system will not have the same design ladders as an “black-boxed” styled analogue or DVR based systems have. This makes the solution more scalable and easier to grow.
