LYYN Griffin


The LYYN® real-time video solution for hybrid CCTV networks, providing enhanced visibility as well as analog to digital encoding


Cost-effective upgrade

LYYN Griffin offers a very cost-effective upgrade solution. When replacing an analog CCTV system with IP video you need an encoder to maintain your investment in analog cameras. With LYYN Griffin you not only keep the camera, you enhance it to a new level of visibility capabilities, as well as encode the video to IP.

Simple integration

The encoder part of LYYN Griffin is based on the Axis Q7401 Video Encoder. You integrate LYYN as you would any standard Axis product and control the video enhancement through a common interface. The interface is based on the standard Axis ACAP interface where LYYN Griffin controls are run as an integrated application. LYYN Griffin also supports VAPIX.
