Avigilon Introduces Next-Generation HD Pro Camera Series; Raises the Bar Once Again for Image Detail and Bandwidth Efficiency

Demonstration at Intersec 2014 to showcase superior image detail of HD Pro Cameras

VANCOUVER, Jan. 15, 2014 /CNW/ - Clearly demonstrating its commitment to innovation and to solving surveillance challenges for its customers, Avigilon Corporation ("Avigilon") (TSX:AVO), a leader in end-to-end surveillance solutions, today introduced the HD Pro camera series to its product portfolio. The new HD Pro camera delivers high-resolution images with Avigilon's next-generation bandwidth management technology to effectively provide maximum detail and coverage of expansive areas.

Available in 8 MP, 12 MP and 16 MP resolutions, the HD Pro camera provides high quality, detailed coverage of vast areas with fewer conventional cameras required. The HD Pro camera provides exceptional low-light performance and smooth capturing of moving objects due to its increased frame rates. When used in combination with the Avigilon Control Center software, the HD Pro camera provides a superior surveillance solution.

"When we introduced our JPEG 2000 Pro series cameras in 2007 we set a new precedent for innovation in the industry. The HD Pro series now raises the bar even higher as we have broken new ground to enable end-users to have the highest quality images possible," said Bryan Schmode, executive vice president of global sales and marketing at Avigilon. "This new technology combined with the latest version of our Avigilon Control Center software pushes the boundaries of innovation as we continue to deliver the most effective surveillance solution that is unmatched in the industry."

H4 Platform with HDSM 2.0 Technology
The image quality of the HD Pro camera series is made possible by Avigilon's new H4 platform, which combines H.264 compression technology with the latest edition of Avigilon's proprietary High Definition Stream Management (HDSM) technology, HDSM 2.0. The combination of these technologies in the powerful HD Pro camera allows for greater processing power, increased frame rate, improved image quality and smarter bandwidth and storage management. The result is high quality, detailed images with minimal network impact.

H4 Pro Technology Demonstration
The HD Pro series will be demonstrated at booth SA-319C at the Intersec 2014 trade show in Dubai, UAE from January 19 to 21, 2014. Avigilon's white paper provides a comprehensive technical description of the H4 platform and HDSM 2.0 technology.

The HD Pro series was designed specifically for expansive areas such as stadiums, parking lots, airports and commercial applications. The HD Pro series will begin shipping in Q2 2014.
