VANCOUVER—Avigilon Corporation, a provider of end-to-end security solutions, on Sept. 22 introduced its new series of HD Dome and HD Bullet cameras with embedded adaptive video analytics.

"Avigilon is already known for its superior high-definition imaging. Building the industry's leading continuously self-learning video analytics into the camera itself serves as another example of how Avigilon innovation is constantly pushing the boundaries of intelligent video surveillance, helping our global customers gain the insight needed to protect people and assets and advance their business," said Mahesh Saptharishi, SVP, analytics and data science, Avigilon, in a prepared statement.

Avigilon's new HD Dome and HD Bullet cameras bring the benefits of Avigilon's adaptive video analytics directly to the device. Powered by Avigilon's pattern-based, self-learning video analytics technology, these intelligent cameras automatically adjust to changing scene conditions and continue to adapt to scene changes without the need for any manual calibration, delivering a new level of performance and ease of installation. The HD Dome and HD Bullet cameras also support Avigilon's “Teach-By-Example” technology that not only enables the analytics to learn continuously by watching the scene, but also learns from operators actively using the system. This innovation symbolizes the vision behind Avigilon's acquisition of VideoIQ earlier this year, according to the company.

"Following our acquisition of VideoIQ Inc. in January 2014, this launch marks another important milestone in the successful integration of our combined technologies, demonstrating our relentless focus on inventing new and better solutions to serve the needs our customers and establishing a higher standard in video surveillance," said Alexander Fernandes, Avigilon CEO, in a prepared statement.  

The HD Dome and HD Bullet camera series with adaptive video analytics are available in 1, 2 and 3 MP resolutions and provide image detail paired with powerful analytics performance. The cameras are fully integrated with the latest version of the Avigilon Control Center software, enabling more than just monitoring, search and recording of video analytic events, but also complete analytics configuration and management within Avigilon's unified, platform, Avigilon Control Center. The cameras will be demonstrated at booth 2411 at the ASIS tradeshow in Atlanta, from September 29 to October 2, 2014.
