Avigilon Corporation, provider of trusted security solutions, has announced that it will preview the next evolution of its award-winning Avigilon Appearance Search video analytics technology at ISC West 2018. Avigilon Appearance Search technology Available in its upcoming Avigilon Control Center (ACC) 6.10 video management software, Avigilon Appearance Search technology will allow users to initiate a search for a person by selecting certain specific physical descriptions, including hair and clothing color, gender, and age. The new feature is designed to provide security operators enhanced speed and flexibility when conducting a search for a person. “While investigating critical events, time is of the essence, and security operators are often provided physical descriptions of the people involved,” said Dr. Mahesh Saptharishi, Avigilon's Chief Technology Officer. “Operators can now use those descriptions, and within seconds, the Avigilon Appearance Search AI engine can search all cameras across an entire site to find a person of interest.” ACC 6.10 is expected to be available in the second quarter of this year and is a free upgrade to current users of ACC 6.
Avigilon Corporation, provider of security solutions, announced its latest innovation in video analytics capabilities with the launch of Avigilon Unusual Motion Detection (UMD) technology, available in its upcoming Avigilon Control Center (ACC) 6.8 video management software. A new level of automation UMD is an advanced artificial intelligence (AI) technology that brings a new level of automation to surveillance and is designed to reveal events that may have otherwise been missed. Without any predefined rules or setup, UMD technology is able to continuously learn what typical activity in a scene looks like, and then detect and flag unusual motion. This allows operators to search through large amounts of footage faster, as UMD focuses their attention on the atypical events that may need further investigation, helping to reduce hours of work to minutes. “Today, most recorded video footage is never viewed, meaning critical events may go undetected. Avigilon is using artificial intelligence technology like UMD to help our customers effectively extract valuable insights from their video data,” said Dr. Mahesh Saptharishi, Avigilon's Chief Technology Officer. “As UMD technology continues to evolve, it will provide operators with advanced capabilities for both forensic investigations and real-time preventative security.” The enhanced ACC 6.8 user interface allows users to filter their recorded video timeline Solving real-world challenges The enhanced ACC 6.8 user interface allows users to filter their recorded video timeline and automatically review the unusual motion events. These events are displayed in an intuitive playback screen that intelligently guides users through highlighted clips. “The launch of UMD technology demonstrates how Avigilon continues to solve real-world challenges through advancements in AI and video analytics,” said James Henderson, Avigilon’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “Over time, this technology will dramatically change the way our customers interact with their security systems by automatically focusing their attention on unexpected events requiring decisive action.” At launch, Avigilon UMD technology will be compatible with the Avigilon H4 box, bullet and dome cameras, expanding to other cameras in the portfolio throughout the year. Existing customers will be able to upgrade certain legacy products to benefit from this exciting new technology.
Avigilon Corporation, provider of security solutions, today announced it will preview the new Avigilon H4 Thermal camera line at IFSEC 2017. The Avigilon H4 Thermal camera line provides exceptional detection and performance with the combination of thermal imaging and Avigilon’s patented self-learning video analytics. Operating beyond the visible spectrum, the H4 Thermal camera line is designed to detect the movement of people and vehicles even in areas with poor visibility, challenging lighting conditions, absolute darkness and partly camouflaged objects. Through Avigilon self-learning video analytics, operators receive notification of detected activity that may require further investigation, helping them take decisive action when needed. All-environment design “With our patented self-learning video analytics built in, our H4 Thermal camera line is designed to help our customers detect, verify and act on events in locations where environmental conditions are challenging,” said Mahesh Saptharishi, Avigilon’s Chief Technology Officer. “Expanding our product line with thermal imaging technology continues to broaden the range of Avigilon solutions available to meet our partners’ and customers’ needs.” The bullet-style, all-environment design is outdoor ready and well suited for a wide range of applications including critical infrastructure, transportation and government. The H4 Thermal camera line is expected to be available for order in the fourth quarter of this year.
The HD Multisensor provides the flexibility of having up to four cameras positioned at one location Avigilon Corporation, a leading global provider of end-to-end security solutions, recently introduced the HD Multisensor camera to its product portfolio. The HD Multisensor camera offers complete coverage of wide areas with the simultaneous ability to digitally zoom in on any movement that occurs within the field-of-view. The HD Multisensor provides the flexibility of having up to four cameras positioned at one location using a single Ethernet cable, housing and camera license, thereby reducing installation time and maintenance costs. Enables high resolution image quality The HD Multisensor camera is designed with three or four individually configurable 3 megapixel camera heads, enabling users to easily monitor environments in high resolution image quality with multiple viewpoints from a single imaging platform. Maximum coverage with minimal blind spots means decreased investigation time and increased prosecution rates. The HD Multisensor’s multi-directional cameras cover even the most challenging angles within a 360-degree field-ofview. Each of the three or four cameras can be positioned independently along three axes (roll, pitch, and rotation), exposing all areas that would otherwise be obscured. “The HD Multisensor is addressing a growing need for multi-directional cameras with individually configurable fields-of-view,” said Avigilon’s Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Mahesh Saptharishi. "The HD Multisensor is easy to aim and provides flexible coverage, so you can focus less time on installation and more time on protecting your property." Additional key features of the HD Multisensor include: 12 MP (4 configurable heads) and 9 MP (3 configurable heads) imaging resolution –offers high resolution detail from four or three 3 MP configurable camera heads 2.8 – 8.0 mm zoom lens – combines best-in-class resolving power with remote zoom and focus Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) dual exposure technology – delivers outstanding clarity and detail detection in both dark and bright lighting conditions Up to 20 frames per second rate – captures fast moving objects within full field-of-view with best-in-class speeds HDSM™ technology – provides highest image quality with lowest impact on operating bandwidth and storage Flexible mounting options – available in surface, pendant and in-ceiling for customised installation and durability in both indoor and outdoor environments, including buildings with multiple points of entry.
