published: May 4, 2017
VANCOUVER, CANADA, May 4, 2017 - Avigilon Corporation (“Avigilon”) (TSX: AVO), provider of trusted security solutions, today announced that it has been selected by the Union Square Business Improvement District (“USBID”) to enhance the safety of Union Square in San Francisco, California.
USBID’s goal is to enhance and promote Union Square, which is known as San Francisco’s ‘crown jewel’ of shopping districts, a cultural hub, and a premier destination. To increase safety for residents and visitors, USBID in partnership with Applied Video Solutions, a San Francisco-based engineering firm, installed over 350 Avigilon HD Multisensor and HD Pro cameras over its 27 block area. These cameras run on Avigilon network video recorders and Avigilon Control Center (ACC) video management software.
Avigilon HD Multisensor cameras were installed because their flexible design can capture multiple angles of the busy streets of Union Square from a single camera, to maximize scene coverage and minimize blind spots. With resolutions from 4K (8 MP) to 7K (30 MP), the award-winning HD Pro cameras were installed to cover wide areas of Union Square, while still delivering exceptional image detail to zoom in, allowing operators the ability to identify and quickly respond to potential security events.
“Our top priority is to keep Union Square as the vibrant heart of San Francisco and a world class destination,” said Karin Flood, the USBID’s Executive Director. “The ACC system is easy to use and the camera image quality is stunning, allowing our operators to conduct fast video searches and accurate investigations when an incident has occurred. This has helped deter crime and ultimately makes the Union Square district safer and even more enjoyable for our community.”
Avigilon’s broad range of cameras, deep learning artificial intelligence driven video analytics technology, and video management software solutions are designed to meet the diverse needs of cities around the globe.
