Evaluation of Axis Camera Station recording solution

February 14th, 2019 by Network Webcams

Axis Camera Station one one monitor and mobileAxis Camera Station (ACS) is video management software which enables you to manage your cameras in one simple interface. ACS has been around for over 10 years and been through a number of iterations. This gives ACS a long track record, making it a proven solution for small and mid-sized organisations. As ACS has been developed in-house by Axis, it’s a reliable and mature VMS solution.

Many organisations choose generic video management software for the ability to integrate any camera and crucially the reassurance that software is updated frequently. With Axis Camera Station 5 you’ll benefit from frequent updates and the ability to intgrate third party devices.

One of the main reasons to choose ACS is budget: software and licences are purchased up front and that’s it. No reoccurring payments, making it much easier for organisations who struggle with a subscription model.


Axis Camera Station Core Licence Change

September 1st, 2018 by Network Webcams

Axis Camera Station - Core device licences for Axis, Universal for Non-AxisThe maximum device limit has been removed from Axis Camera Station 5 (ACS 5) Core device licences. This is good news as it makes ACS 5 more flexible, it simplifies the licence structure and the cost has stayed the same.

Created for small to medium sized businesses, Axis Camera Station enables companies to monitor and record from cameras and supports integration with access control and speakers, all from one interface. There’s also a mobile app, for monitoring on the go.

As with most Axis products it’s easy to set up and use, with a setup wizard to guide you through camera integration as well as smart search to make finding an incident simple.


Why integration is the real power behind Axis Camera Station 5

June 9th, 2016 by Network Webcams

ACS 5 and the expanding Axis product rangeAxis Camera Station has already proved itself to be a very capable and user friendly video management system – ideal for small and mid-sized installations. The latest version (ACS 5) introduced many new features including optimised rendering for 4K, multi-layer maps and a “Tree View” for easier navigation in the Live View and Recording workspaces.

All of these enhancements make ACS 5 a powerful solution for managing your IP video surveillance system, but that’s not the whole story. The real power comes from newly added support to integrate other IP devices such as door controllers, door stations, card readers and horn speakers.

We’re excited to see this because physical security measures are all far more effective when they’re linked together – but what does this actually mean for your organisation or business?


Understanding the new Axis Camera Station licence structure

May 26th, 2016 by Network Webcams

Axis Camera Station - Core and Universal licencesThe recent launch of Axis Camera Station 5 has also brought about a restructure to the licensing for this versatile Video Management Software (VMS).

At NW Systems, we’ve welcomed this latest version of Axis Camera Station (ACS 5) but we must admit the new licensing initially resulted in some perplexed expressions around the office. Axis has changed from simple channel licences to having two types of licence – core and universal. It’s a move that’s caused some confusion for end-users, particularly for those currently using the previous version of the software (ACS 4) and looking to upgrade.

The new approach to licensing may not be that intuitive but it’s certainly logical once understood – let’s take a closer look.


Axis Camera Station V4 launched

March 27th, 2014 by Frank Crouwel

axis-camera-stationAvailable at £70 per video channel Axis Camera Station software offers an attractive video recording and management solution for small and medium-sized installations up to 100 IP camera channels. Version 4 of this software was launched this week and is now available for purchase or as a free trial download.


Using an Axis M3007-P with Axis Camera Station

March 8th, 2013 by Kevin Bowyer

With the recent release of Axis’ 360°/180° hemispheric dome the M3007-P / M3007-PV we’ve been asked a few times how the fisheye dewarping is achieved in Axis Camera Station, the brand’s main video management and recording software. Axis Camera Station does not natively include any de-warping technology so this processing task is left to the camera. First, some background…

See our First Look blog post on the Axis M3007-PV with sample videos.


Axis Camera Station now supports 100 channels

March 8th, 2012 by Emily

The Video Management Software (VMS) from Axis, Axis Camera Station, has been upgraded and now supports up to 100 connected video channels. This increase in capacity is double the amount of IP cameras or video encoder channels that could be used previously.

This is great news for existing users of Axis Camera Station who are nearing the previous limit of 50 connected devices. If your support license is currently valid you will be able to upgrade your system and start adding more cameras straight away. Axis Camera Station installations outside the support period can be upgraded by buying a support extension.

And we are pleased to see that Axis has kept the price of their recording product unchanged.

How to set up Axis Camera Station One recording software

October 21st, 2008 by James Drinkwater

If you have purchased an Axis IP Security camera for your home or business, you will most likely be looking for a robust and easy to use recording suite. For this, Axis offer Axis Camera Station software. This is a premium application which provides a way of monitoring and recording from your Axis IP CCTV camera and will work with up to 50 cameras simultaneously.

For those, however, who are on a tight budget or are looking to test the software before they buy the full version, Axis also offer Camera Station One. This offers all of the functionality available to the full package but limits the number of concurrent cameras to one.
