Avigilon Corporation has announced the launch of Avigilon Unusual Motion Detection (UMD) technology, available in its upcoming Avigilon Control Centre (ACC) 6.8 video management software.
According to Avigilon, UMD is an advanced artificial intelligence (AI) technology that brings a new level of automation to surveillance and is designed to reveal events that may have otherwise been missed.
Without any predefined rules or setup, UMD technology can continuously learn what typical activity in a scene looks like, and then detect and flag unusual motion.
“Today, most recorded video footage is never viewed, meaning critical events may go undetected. Avigilon is using artificial intelligence technology like UMD to help our customers effectively extract valuable insights from their video data,” said Dr. Mahesh Saptharishi, Avigilon’s chief technology officer. “As UMD technology continues to evolve, it will provide operators with advanced capabilities for both forensic investigations and real-time preventative security.”
The enhanced ACC 6.8 user interface allows users to filter their recorded video timeline and automatically review the unusual motion events. These events are displayed in a playback screen that intelligently guides users through highlighted clips.
At launch, Avigilon UMD technology will be compatible with the Avigilon H4 box, bullet and dome cameras, expanding to other cameras in the portfolio throughout the year.
ACC 6.8 with Avigilon UMD technology is expected to be available in Q1 of 2018.
