Avigilon Unveils Next-Generation H.264 Technology
Avigilon, a provider of high-definition (HD) and megapixel video surveillance solutions, announced at ISC West 2012 its next-generation H.264 camera technology, the H3 platform with enhanced High-Definition Stream Management (HDSM). Requiring four times less bandwidth in challenging lighting conditions than previous generations of H.264 cameras, H3 takes full advantage of Avigilon's innovative HDSM technology.
The 3 and 5 megapixel (MP) cameras on the H3 platform capture high quality HD video surveillance footage up to 2.5 times the resolution of 1080p. These high-definition cameras will help security professionals monitor a variety of wide areas with unsurpassed image clarity. The H3 3 and 5 MP dome and box-body cameras feature a 3-9 mm lens with P-Iris and wide-dynamic range (3 MP) for industry-leading performance in variable lighting conditions. The cameras also have remote focus and zoom for ease of installation.
"Avigilon is committed to providing customers with innovative high-definition video surveillance solutions to help our customers protect their assets," said Keith Marett, vice president of marketing and communications of Avigilon. "We provide our customers with exceptional value through industry-leading image quality, and low bandwidth and storage requirements. Our H3 platform takes our commitment to our customers even further with four times less bandwidth and even better image clarity."
The 3 and 5 MP cameras on the H3 platform will begin shipping in May.
