The perfect solution for integrating analog cameras
- Compact, single channel video server
- Powered over Ethernet with power out for the camera
- High quality, de-interlaced video
- Audio support
- Powerful event management
The AXIS 247S Video Server is a high-performance, single channel video encoder for integrating an analog camera into an IP-based video surveillance system.
The compact AXIS 247S is ideal for distributed installation close to the analog camera, where space constraints call for an optimized 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 analog fixed cameras are to be used in an IP-based video surveillance system, e.g. in bank offices, airports, governmental or industrial buildings. Easy installation
The compact AXIS 247S is quickly and easily mounted on a wall or ceiling. It is powered over Ethernet, and can also feed the camera with power, eliminating the need for power outlets. Power classification 2 or 3 is selectable, enabling optimization of the PoE-enabled network either providing just enough power for a miniature camera, or for supplying a standard analog camera. Powerful video and event management
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. AXIS 247S is supported by AXIS Camera Station video management software, which offers remote video monitoring, recording and playback. Support for PTZ and dome cameras
All Axis video encoders connect to analog pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) cameras to allow for easy operation of these PTZ cameras across the IP network. Axis' open policy ensures simple and fast integration with most analog PTZ cameras on the market by including software drivers for more than 25 different analog cameras, including products from American Dynamics, Bosch, Canon, Panasonic, Pelco, Philips, Samsung, Sensormatic and Sony.
