03/27/2018

~Powerful new AI technology enhancement includes demographics when searching for a person~ 

VANCOUVER, CANADA, March 27, 2018 – Avigilon Corporation (“Avigilon”) (TSX: AVO), provider of trusted security solutions, today announced it will preview the next evolution of its award-winning Avigilon Appearance Search video analytics technology at ISC West 2018.

Available in its upcoming Avigilon Control Center (ACC) 6.10 video management software, Avigilon Appearance Search technology will allow users to initiate a search for a person by selecting certain specific physical descriptions, including hair and clothing color, gender, and age. The new feature is designed to provide security operators enhanced speed and flexibility when conducting a search for a person.

“While investigating critical events, time is of the essence, and security operators are often provided physical descriptions of the people involved,” said Dr. Mahesh Saptharishi, Avigilon's Chief Technology Officer. “Operators can now use those descriptions and, within seconds, the Avigilon Appearance Search AI engine can search all cameras across an entire site to find a person of interest.”

ACC 6.10 is expected to be available in the second quarter of this year and is a free upgrade to current users of ACC 6.
