Axis Communications has acquired Citilog, a provider of real-time video monitoring for traffic and transportation security and safety.

Axis says the addition of Citilog’s surveillance technology and personnel strengthens its video solution and further expands its opportunities in the traffic analytics market.

“Citilog’s proven products are well known to the travel sector, and complement our solutions for the most demanding requirements in that market,” said Ray Mauritsson, Axis CEO. “Their commitment to developing quality, innovative and easy-to-use products is consistent with Axis’ approach to provide the most competitive, highest value solution for a range of customer needs. 

“We are excited to be able to offer our channel partners and end users state-of-the-art analytics tools that work with their existing Axis network video solutions.”

Citilog is a privately held company with 30 employees, headquartered in Paris with offices in the United States, Hong Kong and Spain. The company offers a suite of video analytics tools and sensors for transportation monitoring, such as automatic incident detection, traffic data collection and intersection control. Axis and Citilog have worked together for several years on both engineering and sales to provide integrated solutions to a number of mutual customers.♦
