Tools for system designers

Axis Communications announces the launch of two new, free-of-charge tools: AXIS Design Tool 2 and Axis Coverage Shapes that help system designers with the planning and layout of video surveillance systems – replacing complex manual calculations.


AXIS Design Tool 2 helps designers estimate bandwidth and storage need for surveillance scenarios. For each camera in a surveillance system, users can pick a scenario, and select viewing, recording and compression options to get automatic bandwidth and storage estimates.


AXIS Design Tool 2 replaces the existing Design Tool version 1 and has added features that allow users to share a project design with other users, create multiple projects, and work offline. Updates on products and camera specifications are automatically uploaded when connected to the Internet.


The tools have been designed for use with the following browsers: MS Internet Explorer 8 or higher, Google Chrome, Apple Safari 4 or higher, Mozilla Firefox 3.5 or higher. AXIS Design Tool 2 can be accessed from the Axis website and Axis Coverage Shapes from Axis Partner web site.
