AXIS Edge Vault

With AXIS Edge Vault, you can securely boot an AXIS Camera, integrate it, and ensure the protection of sensitive data such as cryptographic keys. AXIS Edge Vault establishes a chain of trust and ensures an unbroken chain of cryptographically validated software. For instance, signed firmware guarantees that the firmware is from AXIS and only firmware updates that are signed can be installed. Secure boot ensures the device runs only signed firmware. Support for signed video also makes it possible to verify if video recordings have been tampered with or not.

This hardware-based cybersecurity platform allows customers to verify the identity and authenticity of their AXIS device so they can be sure that the device is a genuine AXIS product. It enables the IEEE 802.1AR-compliant AXIS device ID to be verified and leveraged for secure onboarding of the device in zero trust networks through IEEE 802.1X and HTTPS. By using the AXIS device ID, the overall security can be increased and time for deployment of devices can be reduced since more automated and cost-efficient controls can be used for device installation and configuration.

AXIS Edge Vault platform relies on a strong foundation of cryptographic computing modules (secure element and TPM) and system-on-chip security (TEE) to protect sensitive information from unauthorized access. This protection ensures secure storage of the AXIS device ID, signing keys for signed video, and access control keys. It also protects customer-loaded cryptographic information used for secure communication such as IEEE 802.1X, HTTPS, and encrypted video streaming. Additionally, when the device is powered off, AXIS Edge Vault adds an additional layer of security and protects your file system from malicious data exfiltration.

AXIS Lightfinder Technology

Thanks to a combination of extremely sensitive sensors and carefully tuned image processing, cameras with Lightfinder capture full-color images in extremely low light. In fact, cameras with Lightfinder discern color in low light better than the human eye. Which is particularly important when images are used for forensic purposes. Because the truer the colors, the better your chances of identifying a subject.


AXIS Lightfinder also increases usability for images of objects and people in motion. Highly sensitive sensors, which enable shortened shutter speed even in low-light, along with minimal temporal filtering let you view frozen frames with very little blur. This of course makes identifying people and vehicles and assessing incidents easier.

Together with other light-optimizing technologies from AXIS, Lightfinder can help you to save energy – and help protect the environment – by keeping the lights off.

As camera technology evolves, so does Lightfinder, Lightfinder 2.0 is now available in selected cameras. It represents a step change in low-light imaging, with increased light sensitivity, colors that are even more life-like, and customized tuning for advanced users.

AXIS OptimizedIR

Just as the name says, OptimizedIR is “optimized” for specific cameras and situations. For example, in our pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) camera with OptimizedIR, the IR beam automatically adapts becoming wider or narrower as the camera zooms in and out. So the entire field of view is always evenly illuminated. And the IR LEDs are placed exceptionally discreetly.

Another example is that in some cameras, the intensity of the integrated LEDs can be adjusted individually. This is useful for avoiding reflections when a camera is installed in a corner or close to a wall, for instance.


While some features of OptimizedIR are tailored for specific cameras and circumstances, others are always pertinent: OptimizedIR is based on power-efficient LEDs with minimal heat dissipation. So they support PoE, with no additional cables needed. That same low heat generation also means durable, long-lasting LEDs. And the fact that illumination is concentrated where it’s needed, keeps power usage relatively low.

Wide Dynamic Range

AXIS cameras with Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology make the difference between seeing important forensic details clearly, and seeing nothing but a blur. Forensic WDR is its latest and most advanced WDR technology. Employing the latest generation of image processing algorithms, this technology effectively reduces visible noise and artifacts to deliver video tuned for maximal forensic usability.

Without WDR technology, images may be underexposed or overexposed, making it impossible to identify objects and people. Our WDR technology solves this, so now you can place your cameras exactly where you need them, with no need to worry about difficult lighting.

Forensic WDR is our most advanced WDR technology. It effectively reduces visible noise and artifacts to deliver video tuned for maximal forensic usability. It’s suitable for scenes with motion in them and – perhaps most importantly – for use in ultra high-resolution cameras. Axis also offers products with other WDR technologies: WDR – Forensic Capture, WDR – Dynamic Capture and WDR – Dynamic Contrast. Each is optimized for specific sets of circumstances. Read more about WDR in our white paper.

So how do you pick the best WDR camera for your purposes? One measure of a camera’s ability to handle images with a wide dynamic range is dB value. In fact, conventional wisdom says that the higher a camera’s dB value, the clearer the images it delivers.

In reality though, that’s not the whole picture. AXIS always prioritizes forensic usability and image quality over achieving high dB. Because other variables – like the quality of image processing – play an important role as well. The bottom line? A camera with a lower dB value can produce an image that’s better for video surveillance.

AXIS Zipstream Technology

Zipstream doesn’t just limit bitrate. Instead, three kinds of intelligent algorithms ensure that relevant forensic information is identified, recorded, and sent in full resolution and at full frame rate. In other words, the proprietary Dynamic ROI, Dynamic GOP, and Dynamic FPS work together in real-time to preserve faces, tattoos, license plate numbers, and more. With this cost-effective technology you get to keep the resolution and frame rate, enjoy prolonged retention time, and store a whole lot less—all without sacrificing valuable information. Furthermore, it’s compatible with a wide range of media players, so it’s easy to playback video.

First launched in 2015, Zipstream just keeps improving. Right from the start, the technology was different because it identified and preserved areas of forensic interest. Today, it’s even better at differentiating between important and less important data, and it’s even more efficient. For instance, with one click you can quickly enable storage profile and enjoy the optimal level of Zipstream for your video storage—regardless of the VMS. Every time we upgrade Zipstream, we make it available in firmware updates. So, your AXIS cameras will always perform at their very best, with the lowest possible bandwidth and storage requirements.

Electronic Image Stabilization

Electronic image stabilization (EIS), provides smooth video in situations where a camera is subject to vibrations. The result? Clear and precise images – even in scenes with lots of motion.

Cameras mounted on high poles or near busy roads can be shaken by winds or passing traffic, and images are often blurry and troublesome to view. EIS effectively minimizes the effects from vibration and shaking to give you reliable images and cost-effective installation.

Thanks to EIS technology there’s no need for costly stabilization mounts – you can install your AXIS network camera anywhere and be confident of capturing clear, steady images in both live and recorded surveillance.

Built-in gyroscopic sensors continuously detect the camera’s movements and vibrations, and automatically adjust the frame to ensure you always capture the details you need.

Furthermore, because recorded images are always stable and movement minimum, EIS reduce bitrate, so you save on bandwidth and storage space.

Thermal Imaging

Just like its visual cameras, AXIS thermal cameras support intelligent analytics. In combination with the cameras, these analytics analyze detected incidents, automatically dismiss non-threatening ones, and immediately notify security of critical situations.

Thermal cameras don’t deliver images that allow reliable identification. So if privacy regulations are a concern, you’ll remain safely in compliance. AXIS also provides thermal technology-based explosion-protected cameras with protective housing. Certified for use worldwide, these cameras are suitable for hazardous areas.


Thermal cameras work because all objects – organic or inorganic – emit a certain amount of infrared radiation as a function of their temperature. Like all cameras, thermal cameras collect electromagnetic radiation, which is formed into an image. Conventional cameras work in the range of visible light, in other words, with radiation with short wavelengths. Thermal cameras, on the other hand, detect radiation with mid-length or long wavelengths, which is called infrared radiation.

Since the object themselves emits the light (heat) thermal cameras detect, thermal cameras are not dependent on visible light and can detect in all light conditions, day or night.

AXIS Radar

Radar keeps false alarms to a minimum. And it provides crucial information about detected objects that video cameras can’t – such as their exact position, and the speed and direction of their movement.

It’s perfect for wide-open, outdoor areas with moderate activity. For example fenced-off area for stock or industrial sites or even to detect façade climbers and to prevent intrusion from the roof.


Radar uses electromagnetic waves to detect movement and isn’t sensitive to the things that normally trigger false alarms like moving shadows or light beams, raindrops or insects. So false alarms are less likely to distract your staff from real threats – and cost you money. Radar is accurate 24-hours a day.

A motion detector based on radar is the perfect complement to your AXIS video surveillance system. In addition to triggering an alarm when it detects an intruder, it can also trigger recording for visual verification. And they’re quick and easy to integrate with AXIS Camera Station, AXIS Device Manager and partner video management systems.

Artpec-8 System-on-Chip

Like all its predecessors, the SIA award winning ARTPEC-8 SoC is designed in-house by AXIS specifically for network video. It powers formidable analytics applications based on deep learning on the edge such as AXIS Object Analytics. ARTPEC-8 also opens the door to other analytics based on deep learning on the edge – including tailor-made applications from partners. In addition, ARTPEC-8 enables an array of remarkable capabilities and features first seen with the implementation of ARTPEC-7. These include superior imaging, enhanced cybersecurity, powerful compression, and impressive analytics on the edge.

AXIS is one of just a few device manufacturers developing proprietary SoCs in-house. Its SoCs are a vital component of its best-in-class camera and encoder platforms because they provide the basis for essential capabilities like image quality, analytics features, and coding performance. The company’s SoCs are made for professional video surveillance. That lets it drive innovation in the best direction for the market. In addition, it retains complete control of the SoC production process, which is paramount from a trust and cybersecurity perspective.

AXIS uses ARTPEC SoCs in most of the products in its portfolio. But because a single SoC can’t be optimized for every possible capability, they also use selected SoCs from a few carefully chosen external suppliers. This gives it the flexibility to provide a more comprehensive range of competitive products with a wide variety of features. And every AXIS product, regardless of SoC, is based on the AXIS operating system.

AXIS Object Analytics

AXIS Object Analytics comes preinstalled on compatible AXIS network cameras, adding value at no extra cost. Thanks to AI-based algorithms and behavioral conditions, it analyzes the scene and spatial behavior of the objects within, ignoring common irrelevant sources of unwanted events. And, because it knows what to detect, you can focus only on objects of interest and events that need attention, making your monitoring more effective. This edge-based analytics processes and analyses live video directly on the camera, eliminating the need for costly servers. You also benefit from more efficient data processing, minimized storage and bandwidth requirements, and improved scalability.

This intelligent analytics allows you to choose what to detect and where. With a straightforward user interface, you can set up scenarios tailored to your specific monitoring needs with just a few clicks. Select which object to detect—humans, vehicles, or types of vehicles* including cars, trucks, buses, and bikes, and then define conditions for that object to trigger an event. And if you simply want to detect any motion in a scene, it supports that too. Based on your configured scenarios, the application will intelligently monitor the scene to determine if and when an event should be triggered when selected objects are detected. Furthermore, using one application, you can customize various detection scenarios and run them simultaneously.


AXIS Object Analytics transforms video into valuable insights you can act on instantly. Using the camera’s event management system, it integrates with AXIS Camera Station and all other major video management systems. Designed to enable proactive monitoring, you can quickly verify detected events or set up automatic responses and collect data to and access actionable insights. So, you can respond appropriately to security and safety breaches in real-time. Or to other events that are happening on your premises for improved operational efficiency. This smart analytics also supports bounding box overlays and trajectories in live and recorded video to help you determine what triggered an event and where the object originated.

The detection and classification capabilities of AXIS Object Analytics are camera dependent. On cameras with a machine learning processing unit (MLPU), it can classify humans & vehicles. On cameras with a deep learning processing unit (DLPU), the application offers more granular object classification so it can classify humans and vehicles as well as different types of vehicles including cars, trucks, buses, and bikes (motorcycle/bicycle). Ideal for busier scenes and more demanding surveillance requirements, it also offers better detection and classification capabilities for people in unusual positions (hunched, for example) as well as objects that are only partially visible.
