Avigilon Launches 29 Megapixel Camera
Avigilon, a provider in high-definition (HD) and megapixel video surveillance solutions, unveiled a number of new products at ASIS 2011 today including the 29 megapixel (MP) JPEG2000 HD Pro Camera, a powerful high-definition surveillance camera.
Avigilon designed and developed the JPEG2000 HD Pro Camera series, which now starts at 8 MP and goes all the way up to 29 MP. The JPEG2000 HD Pro Camera's clarity, resolution, and detail are exceptional -- one 29 MP camera can replace up to 95 conventional cameras and provides high-resolution, high-definition images of very large areas.
"We are very proud to introduce the 29 MP JPEG2000 HD Pro Camera, which stems from our dedication to providing our customers with excellent images and the best possible evidence," said Alexander Fernandes, president and CEO, Avigilon. "We are continuously investing in our technology and advancing state-of-the-art surveillance systems to help protect our customers and preserve their most important assets."
Avigilon also introduced a new 8 MP surveillance camera that offers high-resolution and wide dynamic range, and can replace as many as 26 conventional cameras.
At the same time, Avigilon announced updates to its award-winning Avigilon Control Center (ACC) software with High Definition Stream Management (HDSM) technology. HDSM efficiently compresses and preserves image quality while intelligently managing HD image transmission throughout the Avigilon system -- sending only the requested portions of captured images to operator workstations.
This technology delivers exceptional image quality while providing immediate savings in transmission bandwidth, allowing operators to use less powerful workstations and therefore reduce costs.
Avigilon's updated ACC software, ACC 4.10, offers a simple and intuitive interface and delivers full situational awareness and detailed images. New features, like Synchronized Active Directory Integration and Automatic Bookmark Creation, further enable faster response times, reduced investigation times, and comprehensive overall protection.
ACC software was built specifically to capture, transfer, and manage high-definition images, so users have the flexibility to create a fully customized, stable system with one HD camera or an unlimited number of HD cameras. Avigilon cameras, network video recorders, and software components continue to be built on an open platform, enabling customers to integrate Avigilon components into their systems now and into the future.
