Network video specialist Axis Communications has launched an improved version of AXIS Camera Management in the Middle East.

The tool enables management of Axis cameras from a single point, and serves as an enabler for both distribution and administration.

According to Axis the tool is scalable to thousands of Axis network cameras and video encoders and runs on standard network protocols.

“Efficient management of cameras is key to any large security installation and is an important part of our total camera offering,” said Baraa Al Akkad, regional sales manager, Middle East, Axis Communications.

“Being able to offer a powerful tool that provides one central point of management further strengthens our offering to system administrators.”

AXIS Camera Management can automatically find cameras and other Axis video devices on the network and set IP addresses, configure multiple devices and show their connection status. Notification, download and distribution of the latest available firmware is also automated.

In this new version, AXIS Camera Management also supports AXIS Camera Application Platform, an open application platform where third-party developed applications can be installed and registered to selected Axis network cameras and video encoders.

AXIS Camera Management 3.10 will be available for free download at AXIS Camera Management product page from October 15. The tool replaces AXIS Camera Management 2.00. The tool is compatible with all Axis video products with firmware versions of 4.40 or higher.
