VANCOUVER, BC – December 15, 2008 – Avigilon announced, today, that the company’s 16 megapixel HD Professional IP camera and high definition (HD) and megapixel video surveillance system has been named to Security Sales & Integration Magazine’s ”Top 30 Technology Innovations“ for 2008 which appeared in the December 2008 issue of the magazine. The Avigilon solution was named to the list by Technical Writer Steve Payne for delivering superior performance and value and a simplified migration strategy for analog customers.

“Since its introduction, Avigilon’s HD and megapixel surveillance system has received a number of industry accolades for delivering superior overall protection,” said Dave Tynan, vice-president of sales and marketing for Avigilon. “We are honored to be named to Security Sales & Integration Magazine’s list of “Top Technology Innovations.”

“Megapixel cameras deliver huge savings on labor and infrastructure costs by covering the area of three or four standard resolution cameras. However, until now, surveillance systems were unable to record or store high definition surveillance footage,” said Steve Payne, technical writer for Security Sales & Integration magazine. “By architecting a complete end-to-end surveillance system that leverages the latest technologies available in digital imaging, software, and networking hardware, Avigilon‘s solution offers significant performance benefits with overall lower cost of system ownership.”
