The Avigilon Control Center 4.6 update delivers new features to improve the performance, extensibility, and manageability of HD surveillance systems as well as open systems integration, and is available in two editions—Avigilon Control Center Enterprise Edition and Avigilon Control Center Standard Edition.

Avigilon Control Center 4.6 Enterprise Edition

Avigilon Control Center 4.6 Standard Edition

Avigilon Control Center 4.6 Standard Edition delivers the same powerful HD surveillance engine with HDSM. Designed as a cost-effective solution to meet vital and focused security needs, Avigilon Control Center 4.6 Standard Edition combines high quality image detail with ease of use and expandability at an associated value point. Features of the new Avigilon Control Center 4.6 Standard Edition include: support for ONVIF, 3rd party IP cameras, and Avigilon HD, HD H.264, HD Panoramic cameras, and analog encoders as well as robust searching, exporting, and playback controls.

"By offering two editions of the award-winning Avigilon Control Center software, we can address the demanding needs of enterprise-level HD surveillance with a sophisticated solution and also meet the more focused surveillance needs of relatively concentrated facilities looking to launch or transition to an HD surveillance solution in the most cost-effective way possible," said Dave Tynan, vice president of global sales and marketing at Avigilon. "Designed from the ground up to intelligently manage HD video, Avigilon Control Center 4.6 software delivers a powerful and intuitive interface that now addresses a broader demand from customers to efficiently evaluate and respond to events quickly and easily for greater investigative success."
