AXIS 247S Network Video Server
The compact Axis 247S is ideal for distributed installation close to the analogue camera, where space constraints call for an optimised solution, e.g. for video surveillance with small and discreet cameras in retail stores. Axis video servers provide the opportunity to take advantage of all the benefits that digital technology offers, perfect for installations where analogue fixed cameras are to be used in an IP-based video surveillance systems.
Ease of installation
The compact Axis 247S may be mounted on a wall or ceiling. It is Power over Ethernet (PoE) enabled, and can also provide power to the camera, eliminating the need for power outlets. Power classification 2 or 3 is selectable, enabling optimisation of the PoE-enabled network either providing just enough power for a miniature camera, or for supplying a standard analogue camera.

Powerful video and event management
The Axis 247S allows for powerful event management with multi-window motion detection, audio detection and I/O (input/output) for connecting devices such as sensors and external relays to activate lights or open/close doors. Pre/post-image alarm buffering secures images just before and after an alarm. The Axis 247S is supported by Axis Camera Station video management software, which offers remote video monitoring, recording and playback.
See Axis 247S Network Video Server - Overview for information on the advanced features of the Axis 247S.
