VANCOUVER, CANADA – September 5, 2013 – Avigilon (TSX:AVO), a leader in high-definition (HD) and megapixel video surveillance solutions, today introduced LightCatcher technology to its camera line-up. To be demonstrated at ASIS 2013, Avigilon’s innovative LightCatcher technology provides the industry’s most effective way to capture evidentiary color detail in extreme low-light environments. This new technology helps identify objects of interest more successfully in challenging lighting situations, such as restaurants, bars, hotels, parking lots, and alleys.
“Capturing clear, color detail is important where security is a concern, regardless of lighting conditions. Being able to identify the color of a vehicle or the clothing of a suspect can be the difference in an investigation,” said Ian Povey, director of product marketing and management at Avigilon. “With the introduction of our innovative LightCatcher technology, we continue our commitment to bring the best evidence to the industry.”
By increasing the amount of light and detail captured via the camera and decreasing the noise in the image, LightCatcher technology produces significantly more detail in color from a low-light scene than any other technology. This combination results in the ability to identify objects of interest more effectively.
Avigilon cameras with LightCatcher technology are available with the following additional features:
• 1.3MP HD and HD Dome cameras
• 3-9mm F1.2 lens
• H.264 and motion JPEG compression
• Automatic removable IR cut filter
• Power over Ethernet, 24 VAC or 12 VDC power input
• Audio input and output
