The Axis M7116 offers a cost-effective and user-friendly solution for the migration of analogue CCTV to an IP-based system - without the need to upgrade existing cameras. This 16-channel unit is ideal for small to medium CCTV systems and can deliver H.264, H.265 and Motion JPEG streams simultaneously at 30 frames per second (fps) on all channels - providing clear and smooth footage from all cameras.

Intelligent video capabilities such as motion detection and active tampering alarm are supported and the unit also supports PTZ control via the built-in RS-485 port - enabling any pan-tilt-zoom feature on analogue cameras to be utilised. Axis’ Zipstream technology is also included to reduce bandwidth by up to 50% without compromising video quality. Four integrated MicroSD slots provide edge storage that works as a helpful backup in the event of network failure.

The M7116 can either be used as a standalone unit or can be mounted in a 19" rack and comes with a power supply.
