New AI Appliance enables customers to keep legacy camera investments while adding Avigilon Appearance Search and video analytics technology.
, a Motorola Solutions company, announced the launch and pre-order of its new Avigilon Artificial Intelligence Appliance (AI Appliance).
The AI Appliance adds patented self-learning video analytics and Avigilon Appearance Search technology to almost any IP camera. When connected to Avigilon Control Center (ACC)
software, customers can evolve legacy camera systems into powerful AI solutions — with automatic alerts of potentially critical events and the ability to search for and locate a person or vehicle of interest across an entire site.
“The demand for video analytics is increasing globally and we believe that all security systems will need to utilize this technology to become a proactive and, eventually, preventative solution,” said James Henderson, Avigilon’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “With the vast majority of legacy camera systems lacking the intelligence of analytics, the AI Appliance will provide more customers with the ability to use our advanced video analytics to dramatically change the way they interact with their systems.”
Engineered for high performance, capacity and resiliency, the AI Appliance will be offered in two models and features leading CPU and GPU hardware that simultaneously support Avigilon video analytics and Avigilon Appearance Search technology.
The AI Appliance is now available for pre-order and is expected to ship in the third quarter of this year.
