Avigilon , a provider for HD and megapixel video surveillance systems, announced the Chatham-Kent Police Service (CKPS) in Ontario, Canada has deployed the Avigilon HD surveillance system to boost security at its headquarters and deliver detailed, irrefutable evidence to the court to more effectively meet disclosure requirements and achieve a higher rate of successful convictions. Using the Avigilon HD surveillance system, police officers can reduce investigation times by 90 percent.
"After careful review and unanimous support from our board, Avigilon was quickly identified as the best surveillance solution to help us improve security onsite and provide the courts with the best evidence possible to successfully meet our disclosure requirements," said Inspector Tim Mifflin. "Avigilon won based on performance, cost and ease of operation."
Officers and administrators at the CKPS manage the Avigilon HD surveillance system using Avigilon control center network video management software (NVMS) with HD stream management and installed 12 Avigilon analog video encoders to dramatically improve the performance of its existing 48 analog cameras. The CKPS has also installed two Avigilon HD NVR with automatic failover to store 30 days of continuous surveillance video with greater reliability and redundancy.
Avigilon control center software's advanced functionality and superior audio/video synchronization capabilities have dramatically improved the Police Service's ability to provide solid, high-quality evidence to the court, leading to a higher rate of conviction. Avigilon's rich feature-set and simple management tools have enabled the Police Service to reduce the man-hours required to manage surveillance, reducing the time to search, playback, identify and copy video to create a file for court purposes by 90 percent. Configured for automatic failover and full redundancy, the Avigilon HD surveillance system delivers the reliability needed to ensure ongoing surveillance in the high-risk environment at CKPS headquarters, where suspects and prisoners are monitored 24/7.
Avigilon control center is the HD NVMS with HD stream management that delivers full situational awareness and detail, leading to faster response times, reduced investigation times, and superior overall protection. Avigilon Control Center is available as stand-alone software or preinstalled and configured on Avigilon HD NVRs. Avigilon Control Center is a secure and reliable open enterprise class network video management platform for capturing, managing, and storing HD surveillance video while efficiently managing bandwidth and storage.
