Support for analog cameras in Axxon Next
Alongside IP cameras, Axxon Next allows you to use analog cameras in your video surveillance system. Analog cameras are more affordable and are well-suited for many installations without high video resolution requirements. In addition, Axxon Next allows creating hybrid systems that combine both analog and IP cameras. This makes it possible to maintain high-resolution surveillance in key areas of a site, while saving on the cost of equipment used in other areas.
For digitizing analog video signals, Axxon Next uses SC3B0N16 capture cards with hardware video compression*. On-card hardware compression offloads video tasks from the server CPU, which enables handling a larger number of video channels on a single server.
