Axis Camera Station is a complete monitoring and recording system for up to 50 cameras. The software offers easy installation and setup with automatic camera discovery, multi-configuration of devices and a powerful Event Configuration Wizard.
View and record high quality video and audio from up to 50 cameras with H.264, MPEG-4 and Motion JPEG video compression. Support for H.264 video compression enables optimization of bandwidth and storage efficiency by significantly reducing the bit rate without compromising image quality.
