Avigilon and VideoIQ unite
VideoIQ, a company we have been following closely recently have announced they are now fully integrating their cameras with Avigilon’s Control Center 4.6 Network Video Management Software (NVMS). This new partnership allows both video IQ and Avigilon customers to upgrade their Avigilon surveillance systems with VideoIQ’s award winning adaptive analytics that are integrated into the iCVR-HD camera range; this includes the iCVR dome cameras, iCVR encoders, and iCST line of streaming cameras and encoders.
The iCVR-HD unlike other analytical technologies, feature full megapixel analytic processing something the industry has been screaming out for and self calibration means simple installation and set up.
Avigilon’s CCTV solutions and Megapixel IP cameras secure many hundreds of sites in more than 60 countries. The Avigilon Control Center 4.6 update extends the video management platform’s performance, extensibility, and manageability. The partnership seems the perfect synergy for these two camera giants.
What Avigilon have said of the partnership.
“VideoIQ enables us to provide our joint customers with extended proactive surveillance solutions that include leading video analytic solutions in the market, helping organizations identify and address security risks before incidents occur,” said Rick Ramsay , product manager, Avigilon. “VideoIQ’s unique combination of megapixel analytics, self calibration and high accuracy in all weather and light ensure we deliver the best joint solution available today.”
“Avigilon delivers one of the most powerful, open High Definition VMS platforms on the market and we are confident this integration will provide unmatched value and return for our customers,” said Mark Gally, vice president marketing of VideoIQ. “By partnering together, we are able to reach an even larger market with a proactive surveillance solution that solves the needs of not only the most secure critical infrastructure customers, but also mainstream businesses of all sizes.”
So it seems that these two companies have found a way to up their market share and Avigilon and VideoIQ must be considered when specifying cameras here in the UK.
