Evaluation of Axis Camera Station recording solution

14th February, 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.
