First-Ever 7K Surveillance Camera Launched by Avigilon
Posted on 7th April 2015
Otherwise defined as 30 megapixels such high resolution is unprecedented in the surveillance industry.
According to Avigilon, the single-sensor 7K HD Pro camera provides maximum scene coverage while minimising bandwidth and storage consumption.
The global provider of end-to-end security solutions has also announced the release of a lower end 6K (24 megapixels) HD Pro camera, which nevertheless eclipses existing cameras in the HD Pro range, the 4K (8 MP) and 5K (16 MP) versions.
Coupled with the Avigilon Control Center (ACC) software featuring Avigilon’s patented High Definition Stream Management (HDSM)™ technology the 7K HD Pro camera boasts horizontal resolution in excess of 7,000 pixels and more than 30 million pixels in total.
“High definition imaging is core to Avigilon, and we are constantly innovating to create new industry standards,” says Dr Mahesh Saptharishi, chief technology officer at Avigilon. “Avigilon is the leader in high-definition imaging solutions since the introduction of our first 11 MP camera in 2006.
“The launch of our 7K HD Pro camera combined with our leading Avigilon Control Center software expands our innovation in the security industry, creating a scalable and valuable solution that provides the highest quality images possible.”
The HD Pro family of cameras harnesses Avigilon’s H4 platform and efficient H.264 compression via the latest edition of Avigilon’s patented HDSM technology, HDSM 2.0.
The cameras are also supported by the company’s LightCatcher™ technology, which boosts low-light performance.
