High-performance analytics and high-definition imaging come together to
provide increased protection
VANCOUVER, May 14, 2014 /CNW/ - Avigilon Corporation ("Avigilon" or the "Company") (TSX:AVO), a leading global provider of
end-to-end security solutions, today announced the addition of the
Rialto™ video analytics appliance family to its product portfolio. The Rialto
appliances provide real-time event detection and verification, enabling
users to proactively identify any unusual activity that occurs in a
monitored scene and take immediate action as necessary. Users can
effectively lower costs and increase efficiencies, reduce on-site theft
and vandalism, and provide real-time crime prevention to secure assets
with this technology.
Following Avigilon's recent acquisition of VideoIQ, Inc., this release marks the introduction of
industry-leading video analytics to Avigilon's end-to-end security
solution. The patented Rialto technology, when combined with
high-definition video imaging, will provide users with superior
perimeter surveillance to help protect property, assets and personnel.
The flexibility and ease of installation offers a cost effective way
for companies to integrate video analytics into their current analog or
IP video surveillance system.
"We are truly excited to be introducing the Rialto analytics appliances
to address customers' needs," said Ian Povey, Avigilon's director of
product management and product marketing. "With a prominent team of
analytics developers and a broad portfolio of intellectual property, we
are readily integrating best-in-class video analytics technology into
our award-winning, high-definition solutions. Additionally, our global
sales team is well positioned to take this leading-edge technology to
market with our vast network of over 2,000 partners and resellers."
The Rialto™ family of products is optimized by its "Teach-by-Example" functionality, which enables users to give feedback about the accuracy
of various alarm events as they are generated. Rialto products are able
to learn from this feedback and increase future accuracy, resulting in
one of the lowest false alarm rates in the industry. This self-learning
technology provides enhanced levels of protection, particularly suited
for environments that require perimeter and intrusion theft protection,
such as critical infrastructure and commercial installations.
Core features and benefits of the Rialto series include:
Self-learning analytics: Algorithm-based intelligence allows the system to recognize people and
vehicles while ignoring irrelevant motion;
True object classification: The system classifies people and vehicles, while ignoring other objects
that are unimportant to the scene;
High-definition analysis: Analysis of video up to 1080p resolution allows for more accurate
identification of object features to help reduce false alarms;
Audio talk-down capabilities: Connects to external speakers for remote talk-down functionality to
provide additional intrusion deterrence;
Instant notification: Real-time SMS or email notifications enhance on-site security and
professional monitoring services;
Ease of installation: Plug-and-play setup means quicker installation and near-instant
realization of the benefits of analytics technology;
Always-on technology: Video analytics are able to monitor an area 24/7, 365 days a year; and
Open platform: The system is designed to recognize third party analog and IP cameras.
The Rialto™ analytics appliances enable users to add intelligent video
analytics and storage to their existing Avigilon or third-party video
surveillance system. Rialto products are available in three models and are compatible with IP, analog or thermal cameras for maximum
protection. For a full list of model features and benefits, please
