VANCOUVER, CANADA – June 7, 2012 – Avigilon, a leader in high-definition (HD) and megapixel video surveillance solutions, today announced further expansion to its next-generation H.264 camera technology, the H3 platform with enhanced High-Definition Stream Management (HDSM). Joining the 3 megapixel (MP), 5 MP and Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) cameras in the H3 product portfolio are the best-selling 1 and 2 MP cameras. Staying consistent with the H3 line, the 1 MP and 2 MP form factors require four times less bandwidth in challenging lighting conditions than previous generations of H.264 cameras by taking full advantage of Avigilon’s innovative HDSM technology.
