Avigilon Launches Highly Anticipated Appearance Search Technology

~Avigilon expands video analytics platform with the launch of advanced search technology~ 

VANCOUVER, CANADA, February 7, 2017 /CNW/ - Avigilon Corporation ("Avigilon") (TSX: AVO), provider of trusted security solutions, today announced that it has further enhanced its self-learning video analytics capabilities by introducing Avigilon Appearance Search technology immediately available with Avigilon Control Center (ACC) 6.0 video management software.

Avigilon Appearance Search, Avigilon's newest and most advanced video analytics technology, is a sophisticated deep learning artificial intelligence (AI) search engine that sorts through hours of footage with ease, allowing users to quickly locate a specific person of interest across all cameras on an entire site. It can save time and effort during critical investigations as it intelligently analyzes video data helping to track a person's route and identify previous and last-known locations.

"Historically, video surveillance searches were done on a single camera, based on time, motion and activity," said James Henderson, Avigilon's Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. "But with Avigilon Appearance Search technology, users can now easily search for all instances of a specific person across all their cameras distributed throughout a site, with the click of a button. This is designed to make searching for a person as easy as searching the internet."    

Avigilon Appearance Search technology is integrated with ACC 6.0 Enterprise edition software, Avigilon cameras with self-learning video analytics and select Network Video Recorders.

"With Avigilon Appearance Search technology users can answer the critical "where" and "what" of video searches quickly and decisively," said Dr. Mahesh Saptharishi, Avigilon's Chief Technology Officer. "This is an exciting milestone in the development of Avigilon's comprehensive AI and deep learning video analytics platform, as we continue to provide customers with full solutions for a broad range of video surveillance applications."
