VANCOUVER, CANADA – March 22, 2017 – Avigilon Corporation (“Avigilon”) (TSX: AVO), provider of trusted security solutions, today announced that it will preview the new Avigilon Face and Vehicle Appearance Search video analytics technologies at ISC West 2017, Sands Expo and Convention Center booth 22043, in Las Vegas, USA, from April 5 to 7, 2017.
Avigilon is expanding its deep learning artificial intelligence (AI) search engine, Avigilon Appearance Search technology, with two powerful new features that help users save time and effort during critical investigations.
Using deep neural networks for face analytics, Avigilon Face Appearance Search technology enables searching for a person by incorporating the unique characteristics of a face to find similar recorded footage of that person across a site. For operators, this technology increases the speed and accuracy of investigations, by detecting and understanding that it is searching for the same person, even if items such as their clothing change over time.
Avigilon Vehicle Appearance Search technology enables users to quickly search recorded footage and find a specific vehicle across a site. This technology is designed to provide security operators critical information about where and when a vehicle might have been before and after an event.
“By continuing to be at the forefront of developing deep learning AI technology, we are redefining the way customers think about and interact with their video surveillance systems,” said Dr. Mahesh Saptharishi, Avigilon’s Chief Technology Officer. “This enables systems to provide powerful insights for effective decision making.”
Both Avigilon Face and Vehicle Search have been designed to be part of Avigilon Appearance Search technology, and will be integrated with Avigilon’s full line of video analytics solutions. Existing customers will be able to upgrade certain legacy products to benefit from these exciting new technologies.
