Axis Communications Releases Platforms for Streamlining Security System Design

The AXIS Design Studio and AXIS Site Designer are said to simplify the design process and help integrators achieve customer’s objectives.

CHELMSFORD, Mass. — Axis Communications announced on Thursday the launch of two design platforms that are said to simplify and streamline security system design. The company says AXIS Design Studio is specifically designed for use by independent consultants to design complex, enterprise systems leveraging existing design software. Meanwhile, system integrators and installers can utilize AXIS Site Designer to design security solutions for small and mid-sized systems.

“Axis is committed to making security easy and achievable for any sized system. We listen and incorporate market feedback into our product design and accessories,” says Fredrik Nilsson, general manager, Axis Communications. “These platforms simplify the design process and help achieve the customer’s objectives with a successful installation of Axis products.”

Information about the new platforms, as well as the complete offering, will be available to attendees at the Axis booth (#14051) at ISC West on April 6-8.

AXIS Design Studio

AXIS Design Studio is the result of a partnership with Iomnis Surveillance Solutions, merging 3D virtualization with current Axis design tool competencies to improve the accuracy and efficiency of system designers’ workflow, according to Axis. The 3D modeling environment is said to provide an immersive experience to simplify camera placement and accurately specify field of view. Product selection in the virtual world can be leveraged to produce deliverables, such as camera schedules and field of view footprint, with integration to the online portal.

Axis says designers can continue to build on the project from the 3D environment or begin a new design using the integrated online portal, dependent on the stage of the project. The portal simplifies camera selection by using interactive filtering tools to select the required product and accessories, including server and storage solutions. Once the design is complete, exporting a bill of material, server requirements and a unified CSI specification is a mouse click away.

AXIS Design Studio is supported by Axis Application Development Partners (ADP), including Aimetis Corporation and Milestone Systems.

AXIS Site Designer

AXIS Site Designer is said to provide system integrators and installers with an intuitive new web application that reduces the time and effort needed to design complete security solutions for small and mid-sized systems. It works online and offline to recommend cameras and recording solutions. It includes templates for a variety of security requirements and gives interactive guidance on the selection of cameras, recording products and accessories needed for a complete surveillance solution, according to the company.

The app features a selection of templates for common installation scenarios. A visual camera selector recommends cameras based on operational requirements, such as required resolution, camera coverage and light conditions. A storage calculator provides recommendations for suitable recording solutions based on typical scenarios. Finally, the tool produces a bill of materials that includes all components in the system.
