Avigilon Brings Innovative Adaptive Infrared Technology to its Indoor and Outdoor H.264 HD Dome Cameras


Unique patent-pending approach combines zoom and content adaptive technology to provide the best evidence in the dark  

VANCOUVER, March 28, 2013 /CNW/ - Avigilon (TSX:AVO), a leader in high-definition (HD) and megapixel video surveillance solutions, today announced its innovative Adaptive Infrared (IR) technology will be added to the indoor and outdoor H.264 HD Dome cameras. Avigilon's patent-pending Adaptive IR Technology provides the industry's most effective and flexible way to capture evidence without a visible light source.

"At Avigilon, we're constantly looking at ways to improve the image quality of video surveillance," said Rick Ramsay, senior product manager at Avigilon. "With the adaptive IR technology we're building intelligence into our products so our customers get the same image quality we're known for, but in complete darkness."

Avigilon's patent-pending Adaptive IR technology takes a unique approach to IR illumination by combining zoom adaptive and content adaptive technology. The adaptive IR technology is able to intelligently change IR lighting levels based on the scene while reducing motion blur and ignoring areas where there is no movement. This allows the beam of IR illuminators to focus only on the relevant content within the scene and ensures IR illumination is not wasted on irrelevant content.

Adaptive IR Technology Demonstration

The H.264 HD Dome cameras with adaptive IR technology will be demonstrated at booth 9071 at the ISC West security tradeshow in Las Vegas from April 10-12, 2013. The "Adaptive IR Technology" whitepaper provides a comprehensive technical overview of using IR technology in surveillance scenarios.


The indoor and outdoor H.264 HD Dome Cameras with adaptive IR are specifically designed for businesses or organizations that require protection, regardless of the time of day. Adaptive IR is a standard feature in Avigilon's HD Bullet Cameras and will be available on the H.264 HD Dome Cameras in April 2013.
