VANCOUVER, Canada, April 25, 2017 /CNW/ - Avigilon Corporation ("Avigilon") (TSX: AVO), provider of trusted security solutions, today announced enhanced bandwidth efficiency to its camera lines with the introduction of HDSM SmartCodec technology.

HDSM SmartCodec technology automatically detects activity levels in multiple regions of a scene to optimize compression levels, and reduce bandwidth and storage consumption, all while maintaining high image detail of the areas that matter most. As a result, when activated HDSM SmartCodec technology can reduce bandwidth by up to 50 percent compared to standard H.264 compression.

"With HDSM SmartCodec technology, customers can significantly reduce bandwidth and storage needs, without sacrificing important image detail," said James Henderson, Avigilon's Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. "Combined with Avigilon Idle Scene Mode and patented High Definition Stream Management technologies, Avigilon provides exceptional bandwidth management across the entire system, from camera to server to client."

All new H4A, H4 ES, H4 PTZ and H4 SL cameras include HDSM SmartCodec technology, and a free firmware download is available for previously installed cameras. The remaining H4 camera lines will integrate HDSM SmartCodec technology over the coming months.
