Product Profile

Avigilon, the performance and value leader in high definition (HD) and megapixel video surveillance systems, announced the release of Avigilon Control Center 4.2, the company's latest release of its award-winning HD surveillance software with High Definition Stream ManagementTM (HDSM). With new features to improve performance and manageability, Avigilon Control Center 4.2 captures, transmits, manages, stores, archives, plays back, and exports HD video while efficiently handling bandwidth and storage requirements.

"Organisations around the world are using Avigilon HD surveillance systems to monitor operations, validate safety procedures, and ensure compliance with industry regulations or corporate best practices," said Dave Tynan, vice president of global sales and marketing at Avigilon. "With added features for improved manageability and a more powerful network video management software platform that supports data from any resolution or camera technology, Avigilon Control Center 4.2 delivers superior evidence to lead to improved response times and greater investigative success."

Avigilon Control Center 4.2 includes the following new features and benefits:

Web Browser Based Avigilon Control Center Client

Avigilon Control Center 4.2 now includes full-featured client software that can be used inside Microsoft Internet Explorer without requiring the installation of software on the remote viewing machine. Using HDSM, the new web browser based client enables quick and reliable access to HD surveillance images from remote machines which allows security professionals real-time access to surveillance images from any location.

Site Grouping for Dynamic System Explorer Layout

Avigilon Control Center 4.2 facilitates the customised grouping of servers, cameras, views, maps, and web pages within the system explorer. Benefitting large sites, custom grouping allows easier navigation and system management by grouping surveillance components logically instead of physically. With this feature, surveillance professionals can group components by site, location, owner, role, or whatever grouping makes most sense for their particular installation.

Audio Alerts for Rules Engine Events and Alarm Monitoring

Security operators need to know when an important event happens. Avigilon Control Center 4.2 features pre-loaded or customised advanced audio alerts to ensure that security professionals are alerted to important events.

Manually Triggered Recording

Manually triggered recording capabilities allow operators to manually start recording for a specific camera using a newly designed button on the image viewing panel. This feature enables operators to instantly turn on recording if observing an event on a monitored system and works in conjunction with alarms, events, motion, and all other existing recording triggers.

Expanded Third Party IP Camera Support

Avigilon Control Center 4.2 records and manages video from a wider 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 is in the camera's native compression format, including H.264, MPEG4, or MJPEG.
