HDSM SmartCodec™ Technology

High-quality Imaging with Reduced Storage Consumption

HDSM SmartCodec technology enables Avigilon cameras* to optimize compression levels for regions in a scene to increase bandwidth savings, reduce storage consumption and maintain high-quality imaging.

By lowering your bandwidth at the camera, HDSM SmartCodec technology can extend your network video recorder (NVR) retention times and help to lower your total cost of ownership.

Reduces bandwidth by up to 50 percent

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.**

HDSM SmartCodec technology is designed to work with the Idle Scene Mode feature to achieve even greater bandwidth and storage savings.
