Axis Video Encoders HELP!

There are/were some issues with the newer ones but the M7014 is known to work.

Keep in mind that there are other options out there as well these days, cheaper than the Axis solutions (Planet branded piece and the Wirepath DVR being the most prominent at the moment).

Would you mind mentioning some reasons why you favor the wirepath dvr or why the axis encoder isn't a preferred solution? I got stuck with an axis encoder that is not compatible with C4 and I was considering one of their other encoders that is compatible, but I'm open to other solutions.

Thanks,

Steve

Simply put in the past we had to utilise a DVR and loop out of it to an Axis converter. This ended up making the solution quite costly. Now that we have the wirepath its an all in one solution that records and is able to be displayed on Control4's user interfaces.

Yeah. Not that Axis is a bad solution - it works just fine, but doing it all in one piece for less than the axis servers induvidual cost makes it a no-brainer. A second DVR that's supposedly easier to obtain outside of North America is now integrated as well - haven't used it yet though.

Indeed, the DVR solutions that are compatible with C4 are a better solution than an Encoder and a DVR (and sometimes like some members say the encoder costs more than the DVR). I am now looking for the Lilin and those wirepath...

But it is easy to make / change a driver, so any device that works with direct mjpg streaming, works with C4

Dear steve909 , what is the model of the AXIS encoder you've got stuck with ?

i have the P7210

http://www.axis.com/products/cam_p7210/

it does stream mjpeg but i can't seem to get it to work. i tried the 241Q driver but that didn't work. I also tried the generic web image driver but couldn't get that to work either. i really hope i'm just doing something wrong - so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

thanks,

steve

Steve, try this driver - https://www.dropbox.com/s/m4hsu0817dhgl5u/camera_ip_http_axis_M7014.zip

Nevermind if in Composer you press TEST and it doesn't work, just try it (after inserting IP, username and pass) in the Navigators and tell me if it worked.

It's a driver for each channel and it will placed in Other / Axis / M7014 after you copy them to the Driver folder.

No, I have tried to change the driver to use the RS485 of the Axis Module but so far no success... I could only make it compatible with these new encoders...

I was wondering if someone could upload this driver to the file library. When I try to do it, it shows an error..

I have 6 analog cameras that are connected to a SPECO DVR and 2 Axis 240Q units.  The Axis units are no longer behaving well and I am trying to figure the best way to upgrade.

I am running a synology NAS with camera licenses for each of the channels on the Axis units and would like to get rid of the SPECO DVR. 

What are my alternatives to the Axis Units short of replacing the 6 analog cameras with IP cameras?

You could try the Wirepath analog DVR - keep your cameras and have them imported into control4. They have an 8 channel unit that will work for you.
