Axis Communications introduced the AXIS M70 and AXIS P72 Video Encoder Series, network-ready produdct that migrate analog cameras into an IP-based video surveillance system.

AXIS M70 Series provides integration of analog surveillance installations into network video technology. AXIS P72 Series offers advanced network capabilities. All video encoders in AXIS M70 and AXIS P72 Series provide dual H.264 and Motion JPEG streams.

AXIS M70 and AXIS P72 Series include support for Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af), which enables the encoders to receive power through the network cable. All Axis video encoder products also provide pan, tilt and zoom support, which enables control of analog PTZ cameras. Furthermore, the stand-alone versions also have a microSDHC memory card slot for local storage.

These products are supported by AXIS Camera Station video management software as well as the industry’s largest base of application software through Axis’ Application Development Partner program. They also support the ONVIF specification for interoperability of network video products and AXIS Video Hosting System (AVHS) with One-Click Camera Connection. The video encoders will be available in September through Axis’ distribution channels.
