AXIS Camera Station or DVRs?
AXIS Camera Station in combination with Axis network video products offers many benefits compared with analog surveillance systems based on Digital Video Recorders:

Axis network cameras
Digital Video Recorder
with analog cameras
AXIS Camera Station is installed on a standard PC, which reduces response times and simplifies upgrades/replacements (as opposed to when using proprietary equipment such as DVRs). Cameras and licenses can be easily added one by one. The system hardware can be expanded to meet increased performance requirements.
With progressive scan, and HDTV and megapixel resolutions, network camera technology has surpassed the image quality provided by analog cameras with DVRs.
Most facilities are already wired with network cables, thus an IP-Surveillance solution requires no additional wiring for video, audio and remote PTZ control. Most Axis network network video products support Power over Ethernet (PoE), which allows you to power the devices through the network and eliminate the wiring needed for electrical outlets. Using standard PC and server hardware for video recording and storage rather than proprietary equipment such as DVRs, radically reduces management and equipment costs.
Advanced network cameras and video encoders with built-in intelligence or analytics, such as video motion detection, audio detection alarmand active tampering alarm reduce the amount of uninteresting recordings. Multi-view streaming and fail-over recording in cameras are examples of new possibilities for system optimization and improved reliability that are not available in an analog solution.
Network video products based on open standards can be easily integrated with computer and Ethernet-based information systems, audio or security systems and other digital devices. For instance, video from a network camera can be integrated into a Point of Sales system or a building management system. AXIS Camera Station comes with an open interface for easy integration with third-party applications.
