In 2017 we released some of our most innovative video analytics, artificial intelligence, and access control solutions, from our award-winning Avigilon Appearance Search™ technology, to our new H4 Thermal camera line. As we approach a new year, here’s a look back at our top innovative technologies and products from the past year. Read below to see what’s our number 1!
10. Avigilon Control Center (ACC) Software Integration with the Access Control Manager (ACM) System
Users can now easily configure the ACM™ door events using the ACC™ rules and receive door-related alerts in the ACC software, allowing them to respond to physical security alerts with greater speed and efficiency.
Top Features: Native support with the ACM system; intuitive interface; easy management and display of video alarm events.
9. HDSM SmartCodec™ Technology
Significantly reduces camera bandwidth and storage requirements while maintaining image quality.
Top Features: Enhanced bandwidth efficiency; reduced storage consumption; reduces bandwidth by up to 50 percent compared to standard H.264 compression.
8. ViRDI Biometric System Integration
Leverages the ViRDI solution to add biometric authentication to Avigilon’s Access Control Manager™ system, for restricted locations and areas requiring a high level of security.
Top Features: Patented live and fake finger detection technology; easily set up and enroll biometric identities directly from the ACM system through integration with the VIRDI Biometrics Enrollment Manager interface.
7. Avigilon Presence Detector (APD) Sensor
A sensor that combines impulse radar technology with self-learning radar analytics to detect a person’s presence with up to 99% accuracy—even if they have stopped moving or are hidden.
Top Features: Impulse radar technology; self-learning radar analytics; small and discreet design; uses standard IP security camera infrastructure and cabling for easy installation; integrates with the Avigilon Control Center™ software.
6. Unusual Motion Detection Technology
Uses advanced artificial intelligence technology to continuously learn what typical activity in the scene looks like, and detect atypical events that may need further investigation.
Top Features: No predefined rules or set up; searches through volumes of footage quickly to reveal events that might have otherwise been missed.
5. H4 Mini Dome Camera Line
Our smallest H4 platform camera, with a footprint of only 2.8 inches.
Top Features: Small discreet modular design that snaps into place easily; HDSM SmartCodec technology for low bandwidth; exceptional image quality with LightCatcher™ technology and dual exposure true Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) and Content Adaptive Infrared (IR) technologies.
4. H4 IR PTZ Camera Line
A new infrared pan-tilt-zoom camera that allows users to see up to 250 meters (820 feet) in complete darkness.
Top Features: 45x zoom lens; zoomable infrared technology combined with patented Avigilon self-learning video analytics; built in wiper.
3. H4 Thermal Camera Line
Operates beyond the visible spectrum to help accurately detect people and vehicles in areas with poor visibility, challenging lighting conditions, absolute darkness, and partly camouflaged scenes, without the need for additional light sources.
Top Features: Advanced thermal imaging combined with patented Avigilon self-learning video analytics.
2. Avigilon Blue™ Platform
Coming soon, a powerful new integrator cloud service platform for security and surveillance.
Top Features: Remotely adjust camera and system settings, perform upgrades, and check the health of your sites, without deploying a technician.
1. Avigilon Appearance Search Technology
A sophisticated deep learning AI search engine that sorts through hours of footage with ease to quickly locate a specific person or vehicle of interest across an entire site.
Top Features: Uses the unique characteristics of a person’s face to locate a person of interest across an entire site; comes as standard with Avigilon Control Center Enterprise edition; integrated with Avigilon cameras with self-learning video analytics and select Network Video Recorders.
