Avigilon Corporation says it has further enhanced its self-learning video analytics capabilities by introducing Avigilon Appearance Search technology, which is immediately available with Avigilon Control Center (ACC) 6.0 video management software.

Avigilon Appearance Search is a sophisticated deep learning artificial intelligence (AI) search engine that sorts through hours of footage, allowing users to “quickly locate a specific person of interest across all cameras on an entire site”. It can save time and effort during critical investigations, the company notes, as it intelligently analyzes video data helping to track a person’s route and identify previous and last-known locations.

“Historically, video surveillance searches were done on a single camera, based on time, motion and activity,” said James Henderson, Avigilon’s chief sales and marketing officer. “But with Avigilon Appearance Search technology, users can now easily search for all instances of a specific person across all their cameras distributed throughout a site, with the click of a button.”

Avigilon Appearance Search technology is integrated with ACC 6.0 Enterprise edition software, Avigilon cameras with self-learning video analytics and select Network Video Recorders.
