VANCOUVER, CANADA – May 1, 2013 – Avigilon (TSX:AVO), a leader in high-definition
(HD) and megapixel video surveillance solutions, today announced the world’s smallest HD
Dome camera. The small yet powerful 1 and 2 megapixel (MP) HD Micro Dome cameras open

“Stores, hotels, office buildings and restaurants want discreet cameras that provide exceptional
image detail. Traditionally, you could get one or the other. Now with our HD Micro Dome, you
get both,” said Rick Ramsay, senior product manager at Avigilon. “With this introduction, small
and medium-sized businesses can easily transition from analog to HD surveillance.”
Unique to the HD Micro Dome camera is the patent-pending smart cable design that enables the
camera’s discreet size. By designing the camera’s intelligence into the smart cable, Avigilon is
able to provide the smallest HD dome camera in the industry. Slightly larger than a golf ball, the
discreet HD Micro Dome and the smart cable weigh a combined 70 grams. This small,
lightweight camera will ease the transition from analog to HD for end users.
The HD Micro Dome provides a horizontal angle view of 86 degrees at 30 images per second.
With an IP66 rating, the HD Micro Dome camera can be used in indoor and outdoor
environments. The ONVIF compliant camera is the latest addition to Avigilon's next generation
H.264 platform and can be coupled with Avigilon Control Center or other leading video
management software suites.
The indoor and outdoor HD Micro Dome camera with smart cable technology was designed
specifically for discreet, budget-conscious installations, like retail stores, office buildings,
restaurants and hotels, that want to upgrade their surveillance to high-definition. The HD Micro
Dome will begin shipping in August 2013. For more information on product availability please
