Axis introduces a new level of openness to the security industry
The open application platform, launched by Axis Communications , makes it possible for any company to develop downloadable applications for Axis’ market-leading range of network cameras and video encoders.
Axis is the first company to completely open its network video products for third-party applications. “A parallel can be drawn to the telecom market, where end users benefit from a wide range of downloadable applications for their mobile phones,” says Ray Mauritsson, CEO of Axis Communications. “In the security market, the focus of the applications however, will be different. We see great interest for intelligent video applications that provide the products with capabilities based on, for instance, recognition, tracking, detection and counting.”
Benefits of using the open application platform:
- Axis-compatible applications are easily available for integrators and end users
- The open application platform enables users in the industry to develop applications that bring extra value to various target groups
- As a result, it will be possible for integrators and end users to select the best combination of camera and application, or encoder and application
- City surveillance
