"Avigilon Control Center 3.2 with HDSM was architected from the ground up for HD surveillance which is why, unlike other solutions, it delivers the image quality expected of HD for full situation awareness and detail, leading to faster response times, reduced investigation times, and superior overall protection," said Jean-Pierre (JP) Forest, director of security solutions at Avigilon. "Other systems try to retrofit HD cameras into software applications built for analog video. Inevitably these legacy systems degrade HD images to the quality of analog which defeats the whole purpose of HD."
