As a distributed network platform with enterprise-class reliability, Avigilon Control Center is able to efficiently capture, manage and store high-definition surveillance video while intelligently managing bandwidth and storage. Avigilon Control Center can be pre-installed and configured on an Avigilon™ Network Video Recorder (NVR) or work as stand-alone software, to meet the needs of any type of installation.
Avigilon Control Center records and manages both video and audio from Avigilon’s line of megapixel cameras (from 1 MP to 29 MP). ACC can seamlessly integrate conventional analog cameras, along with a broad range of third-party IP cameras and encoders, giving you the ability to build a hybrid system — providing you with a budget-conscious migration from analog to digital. ACC’s easy-to-use interface allows personnel to evaluate and respond to events with minimal training.
Center uses HDSM™ software technology to efficiently compress and preserve
image quality while intelligently managing HD image transmission throughout the
Avigilon system – sending only the requested portions of captured images to
operator workstations. This technology delivers the best possible image quality
while providing immediate savings in transmission bandwidth allowing operators
to use less powerful workstations and thereby reducing costs. HDSM technology
leverages leading imaging, hardware, data compression and information
technologies to maximize performance of the Avigilon system.
Avigilon Control Center 5 Features
Interface Avigilon Control
Center’s system explorer functionality gives you more control over what you see
at your workstation or video wall by allowing you to resize the interface – so
you can focus on image windows rather than a complicated screen layout. For
greater efficiency, the controls you use most often are easy to access, and the
ones you use the least, tucked away nearby for easy accessibility.
Investigations ACC 5 allows
multiple operators to view and interact with the same layout and interface in
real time. Now a user can push their feed to another workstation, and they both
have complete control to manipulate and maneuver it on their own, saving the
users time by letting them demonstrate incidents and review HD video together –
all without ever being in the same room.
Enterprise Server Management Up to 100 servers
can be synchronized as a single cluster, operating as one unit, with no
dedicated management server required. So if one goes down, the others are still
fully operational and already have the information and settings that would
normally be lost. And adding new servers is as easy as plugging them in –
they’ll automatically grab all the user’s information and settings, with no
System Administration Large enterprises
can manage users from a centralized system and standardize deployments by providing
the ability to deliver the right information to the right people at the right
time. The system allows a central administrator to delegate the management of
local users and groups to a local administrator without giving them access to
systems outside their jurisdiction.
- Intelligent Virtual Matrix With ACC 5, you can
flawlessly transform your static video wall into an intelligent video wall,
finally utilizing its full capabilities – easily maneuver through camera feeds,
manipulate your wall’s layout, interact with video, zoom, rewind, isolate, and
High-Dynamic-Range Image Display
- Analyze detailed
regions from single or multiple cameras.
- Use viewing tabs to
allow single operators to switch between multiple cameras located throughout
large enterprise systems.
- Digitally zoom and
pan within an image with a mouse or surveillance joystick. Automatic dynamic
contrast enhancement reveals low-light details for unmatched digital PTZ
- View live or
recorded high definition surveillance footage.
Protection and Storage Management
- Redundant recording to multiple NVRs
allows a full live mirror of all high definition video.
- Automatic fail-over
NVRs ensure uninterrupted recording if an NVR becomes unavailable.
- Integrated backup
and restore functionality allows recorded HD video from multiple cameras to be
securely transferred from an NVR on a defined schedule.
- Allocate more
storage capacity to recent events and taper archived surveillance footage for
maximum record times with data aging.
Graphic Mapping for System Layout
interface lets operators layout cameras and servers on an imported map for easy
navigation of large surveillance systems.
- Maps can be layered
and nested, allowing easy navigation through satellite maps, multi-story
buildings and very large areas.
Recording and Playback Timeline
- Timeline interface
with integrated drag-to-zoom capability allows full control over high
definition surveillance video playback, in forward and reverse, at variable
speeds–up to 8 times faster than real time.
- Rapidly updating
playback system allows intuitive jog or shuttle playback to identify key events
and subtle changes.
Management and Remote Viewing
- Fine-tune camera
bandwidth usage to optimize image quality and network bandwidth availability
with Avigilon’s High Definition Stream
- Management (HDSM)™
- Remotely connect to
multiple recorders to view live and recorded surveillance footage over the
local area network (LAN) or a wide area network (WAN) connection.
and Export HD Surveillance Footage
- Bookmark and export
movies or still images in industry- standard formats or in Avigilon loss-less
format for third- party forensic work.
- Exported video can
be managed via the Avigilon
- Control Center
Player – which provides all the tools required for analyzing and reviewing
captured HD surveillance footage.
- Bookmarked events
are indexed to allow rapid searching using user defined metadata.
- Bookmarks can be
made private to maintain the security of an ongoing investigation.
- Unique sub-region
thumbnail searching allows you to rapidly find small changes within HD
surveillance, covering large areas.
- Quickly and
accurately navigate through large amounts of recorded high definition video
with camera-specific event logs.
- Search through
alarms, point-of-sale transactions, license plates and bookmarks.
Advanced Control Center Features
- Alarm Escalation
- Allows the creation
of complete end-to-end workflows for the monitoring, assignment, and
acknowledgement of alarms.
- Can be triggered by
any internal system event, as well as external third-party access control and
building management system triggers.
- Allows organizations
to set time-sensitive alerts according to priority to ensure that alerts are
addressed and appropriately escalated.
- Link HD surveillance footage (viewed
instantly) with transaction data to address compliance requirements and reduce
shrinkage and theft.
- Exception filtering
and reporting allows the triggering of events when transactions match specified
- Detects specific
regional license plates as they appear in the camera field of view to monitor
- Provides a Watch
List feature to notify users when specific license plates are detected in the
- Ensures that all
Avigilon™ cameras, regardless of resolution, are always configured to collect
the best possible image over a wide range of lighting conditions.
- Configure multiple
independent camera-specific motion-detection zones for pre- or post-motion- triggered
