Zipstream Technology

Axis Zipstream technology preserves all the important forensic detail you need, while lowering bandwidth and storage requirements by an average of 50% or more.

Unlike most compression 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, our proprietary Dynamic ROI, Dynamic GOP and Dynamic FPS work together in real-time to preserve faces, tattoos or license plate numbers and more.

The result? With Zipstream, you keep the resolution and the frame rate, and still store a whole lot less. So you save space – and money – without sacrificing valuable information.

Axis’ Zipstream technology - Cut the storage. Not the quality

It’s getting better all the time.

Axis Zipstream technology was launched in 2015, and we keep improving and refining it. Right from the start, Zipstream 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. Zipstream is now also compatible with more Axis cameras – like our PTZ and ultra-resolution 4K and 360° panoramic cameras.

Free upgrades

Every time we upgrade Zipstream, we make it available for your installed base in firmware updates. So your Axis cameras will always perform at their very best, with the lowest possible bandwidth and storage requirements.
