According to a release, AXIS Camera Companion 2.10 includes support for 360 degrees overview recording with de-warped views when zooming into the image. This allows users to take advantage of the benefits from Axis' 360 degrees fixed dome HDTV cameras, providing great overview and scene details with only one camera.
While most AXIS Camera Companion solutions record video directly to SD-cards inside Axis network cameras, the new release also includes support for easier integration of network-attached storage (NAS) when increased storage capacity is needed. A set-up wizard makes it possible to integrate any NAS device on the market and, for further simplicity, Axis has included automatic configuration in the software client for select NAS products.
"Usability is a key feature of AXIS Camera Companion, and the latest version provides end-customers with more capabilities to fully leverage the benefits of IP video for their small surveillance systems," said
As described by the company, the features include:
-Multi-view streaming to increase surveillance efficiency for multi-megapixel cameras
-Search filter for navigation to different sites
-Visual system status notification
-Windows 8 touch screen support
-Third-party apps for viewing live and recorded video from EyeSpyFX and BrightSentry
-Automatic NAS configuration currently compatible with units from QNAP
Unlike traditional surveillance installations, AXIS Camera Companion does not require a central recording device - such as a digital video recorder (DVR), network video recorder (NVR) or even a computer - to run. All video can be recorded onto a standard SD- card in each camera, and the cameras keep recording even if the network fails. The cameras can be powered over the network, eliminating the need for separate power cables.
