Avigilon Adds HD PTZ In-Ceiling Dome Camera to Product Line-up


Unique design provides customization options and faster installation

VANCOUVER, June 11, 2013 /CNW/ - Avigilon (TSX:AVO), a leader in high-definition (HD) and megapixel video surveillance solutions, today welcomed the HD Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) In-Ceiling Dome camera to their product line-up. With the same quality and performance of the HD PTZ, the In-Ceiling Dome has a patent-pending mounting technology that dramatically reduces installation time. The new camera also has a removable trim ring so customers can easily customize its color.

"At Avigilon we're always looking for ways to bring innovation into our products," said Ian Povey, director of product marketing and management at Avigilon. "Time is money, and that's especially true for integrators. If we can make our product installation more efficient it adds to our customers' bottom line."

Ease of Installation
The unique, patent-pending mounting technology uses spring-loaded mechanisms to reduce installation times. As a result, no screws are required to secure the camera in the ceiling and the HD PTZ In-Ceiling Dome camera takes only minutes to install. The removable HD bubble comes in clear and smoked finishes. It allows for easy painting of the trim ring to suit the camera's surroundings.

Precise and Predictable
The 1 and 2 MP PTZ cameras offer unsurpassed image quality with precise positioning and predictable high-speed tracking. Strengthened by the H3 platform with enhanced High-Definition Stream Managementâ„¢, customers with manned operations, such as large retail stores, airports, petrochemical, casinos, and commercial spaces, will benefit from lower bandwidth and storage requirements.
