Full-featured, digital benefits for analog surveillance systems

The AXIS 241 Video Servers are designed to migrate your analog investments into high-performance IP solutions, ideal for surveillance and remote monitoring. The AXIS 241S Video Server accommodates one analog video stream.

Powerful event management tools

System integration and network utilization are optimized with sophisticated functions such as built-in motion detection, SNMP and simultaneous Motion JPEG and MPEG-4 streams.

Powerful event management tools include image upload, alarm notification and I/O control. Pan/tilt/zoom control is done over the serial port, enabling PTZ and dome camera handling over the network. A de-interlace filter eliminates interlace artifacts from NTSC/PAL cameras.

Advanced network security

A comprehensive set of security features, including multiple user access levels, HTTPS encryption, possibility to disable unused network services for example ftp, IEEE802.1X and IP address filtering, ensures secure video handling and configuration.

In addition, the AXIS 241S has support for Quality of Service (QoS) which helps secure the necessary bandwidth for streaming video and control commands over a network.

Support for PTZ and dome cameras

All Axis video encoders connect to analog pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) cameras to allow for easy operation of these PTZ cameras across the IP network. Axis' open policy ensures simple and fast integration with most analog PTZ cameras on the market by including software drivers for more than 25 different analog cameras, including products from American Dynamics, Bosch, Canon, Panasonic, Pelco, Philips, Samsung, Sensormatic and Sony.
