Video and Audio
• AAC requires a license for both encoding and decoding. AAC is the least complicated and most widely used codec. If
achieving the best possible audio quality is a priority, AAC is the recommended codec to use. An AAC license is included
in the Axis product.
• G711 is an unlicensed standard codec that is useful when integrating audio into a VoIP system
• G726 is an unlicensed speech codec that is most commonly used within the security industry.
• Opus is an unlicensed codec that is used for interactive real-time audio transmission over network.
If recording audio to edge storage, such as an SD card or network share, use AAC encoding.
The Sample rate denes the number of times per second the sound is sampled. A higher sample rate will provide better audio
quality, but also requires a greater bandwidth.
Set the required Bit rate depending on the selected encoding. A higher bit rate will give better audio quality. A lower bit rate
may have latency or delay, but will require less bandwidth.
For more information about these settings, please see the online help
