Avigilon Control Center 4.0 includes the following new features and benefits:

Third party IP camera support

Avigilon Control Center 4.0 will record and manage video from a wide range of third party IP cameras and analogue encoders for the purpose of building hybrid systems and preserving existing assets. Management of surveillance video from third party cameras and analogue encoders will be in their native compression format, including H.264, MPEG4, or MJPEG.

Audio recording

The new audio recording functionality allows users to record audio streams and associate the recorded audio with corresponding video, providing security professionals with an extra layer of security for improved overall protection. The ability to record audio synchronized with HD video allows institutions, such as correctional facilities, to take advantage of HD surveillance while recording the audio required to secure their facilities. The Avigilon Control Center software will be able to record audio directly from Avigilon HD Dome Cameras, Avigilon analog encoders, and compatible third party IP cameras.

Advanced data management

Advanced data management features include the ability to redundantly record surveillance video from all cameras to multiple NVRs for a complete live mirror of all data. Failover NVRs record video automatically in the event of an issue with an existing NVR, while simple schedulable backup and restore capabilities make it easy to backup and restore either a subset or all surveillance video recorded to an NVR to another storage device.

Improved event bookmarking and management

Improved event bookmarking and management features facilitate searching and allow bookmark protection to permanently preserve bookmarked events when an NVR overwrites the oldest recorded video. Bookmarked meta-data will also be extended to include additional indexed information regarding an event to facilitate rapid searching and review of recorded HD surveillance video.
