several ways to migrate from analog to digital surveillance systems. Making use

This is a
very strong alternative for customers to get the all benefits of IP video
surveillance without having to make any significant changes to their existing
infrastructure. The AXIS T8646 PoE+ over Coax Blade fits Axis video encoder
chassis. Any combination of encoder blades and AXIS T8646 can be used
simultaneously, so customers can migrate to IP in any pace they want. We are
leading the way to migrate from analog to digital video surveillance and are
offering our customers paths that fit their current and future need, says Erik
Frännlid, Axis Director of Product Management, Axis Communications.

camera side. Both the device unit and the network camera can receive power over
the Coax cable using the new rack-mountable AXIS T8082 and AXIS T8085 power
supply solutions, making the installation and maintenance very effective.
AXIS T8646 will
be sold as a single unit and in a kit that combines one AXIS T8646 blade with
six AXIS T8642 device units. AXIS T8646 is planned to be available in Q2 2014
