Changing the face of surveillance: The brains behind the first network camera

There’s no proven formula to success. But on a closer look, great inventions and innovation have a few things in common: Enthusiastic and engaged people with an idea, an incentive and good timing. These factors were also the base for the invention of the first Axis network camera. And it all started with a journey to Japan….

A time travel to the beginning of a revolutionary idea

Let’s jump back to a day in the early ‘90s when the seed to a great idea was planted: Martin Gren, the co-founder of Axis, was on a business trip in Tokyo to meet potential customers. One of them turned out to have an inventory of analog cameras that were rather difficult, if not impossible to sell. Knowing that Axis had experimented with technology that made networks smarter, he asked Martin if it was possible to attach them to a network. Martin Gren saw the potential and the idea started to sprout.

What he didn’t know then was that an Axis engineer named Carl-Axel Alm, was in the process of developing a prototype of a network video conference system. When Martin came back from Japan with his new idea and saw what his colleague was working on, he realized that they weren’t far away from turning this from an idea into reality. But instead of using the technology for a video conference system, a sector where he didn’t see Axis doing business in the future, Martin suggested using the new hardware to create a network camera.
