Medellin Atanasio Girardot Stadium Installs Avigilon Solution for Improved Security


 Stadium is First in Colombia to Install Avigilon 7K Cameras

VANCOUVER, CANADA, March 7, 2016 /CNW/ - Avigilon Corporation ("Avigilon") (TSX: AVO), trusted provider of business intelligence and security solutions, today announced that Medellin's Atanasio Girardot Stadium has become the first major stadium in Colombia to install Avigilon 7K (30MP) cameras as part of its security solution.

Avigilon 7K cameras and Avigilon Control Center (ACC) video management software were selected as part of a large security upgrade for the government-owned stadium in an effort by the government and Medellin law enforcement agencies to combat crime and vandalism during sporting events. Avigilon video surveillance systems are currently installed in many recognizable stadiums across the world.

The Avigilon solution enables enforcement agencies and first responders to view activity within large crowds as it happens all while providing video evidence and information that may support investigations. This solution allows users to view situations from both the main and remote control centers.

"We're proud to partner with the Medellin Mayor and City Council as they demonstrate leadership in Latin America by installing the first 7K cameras at a major Colombian stadium," said Alexander Fernandes, Avigilon's Founder, President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board. "Installation of the Avigilon solution reinforces their commitment to the safety and security of the Medellin people and to the tens of thousands of spectators who attend large events at this stadium."
