Axis Communications has released two new video servers that enable analog video systems to easily migrate to an IP-based solution. This is great for converting your old home surveillance system to be accessible from any place in the world. The Axis 241 comes in two flavors, single and quad input models.

“The AXIS 241Q and AXIS 241S Video Servers digitize analog video streams and transmit them at full frame rate over an IP network, enabling remote viewing of video in real time on a local area network or the Internet. The video servers also provide built-in video motion detection and powerful event management functions based on triggered or scheduled events. In addition, the products offer a complete set of security features such as HTTPS, IP address filtering and multi-level password protection..

The AXIS 241Q can connect up to four analog cameras and transmit digital video from all four channels simultaneously via an Ethernet connection. The AXIS 241S has one analog video input and one analog output, in addition to an Ethernet connection.”
