Searching through large volumes of recorded video is a challenging yet crucial task for security operators. We have reached a critical point where the limitations of the human attention span make it difficult for security operators to search through the volumes of security data effectively.

To answer this challenge, Avigilon is developing technologies and products that harness the power of AI to dramatically increase the effectiveness of security systems by focusing human attention on what matters most. By delivering true video content search, real-time alerts and automation, Avigilon provides effective security solutions that are helping to solve real-world challenges.

Transforming Video Security

In the past, video searches were conducted per camera, based on time, motion and activity. However, a person or object of interest may not be specific to a single camera, and their clothing or appearance may change over time, making it necessary for security operators to quickly and accurately search all cameras across a site to locate what they are looking for.

Through the power of AI, this is now possible. Advanced AI technology, like Avigilon Appearance Search™ technology, provides security operators with the ability to quickly locate a specific person or vehicle of interest across an entire site. This enhanced search capability is designed to help improve response times by answering the critical who, what, where and when of an investigation with decisive action.

How AI and Appearance Search Are Being Applied

This technology is being deployed across a range of verticals to address some of the industry’s biggest security challenges. For instance, Fulton County School System in Metro Atlanta, Georgia has installed a complete Avigilon security solution to help enhance safety at more than 100 of its schools. Advanced AI technology, combined with the advanced search capabilities of Avigilon Control Center (ACC) software, has provided their operators with powerful insights that enable proactive event response and can help save time and effort during critical investigations.

Charlotte Hungerford Hospital (CHH) in Torrington, Connecticut has also deployed an AI-based Avigilon solution to improve security across its multiple locations. Avigilon Appearance Search helps CHH when they need to quickly locate a specific person or vehicle of interest across all cameras both inside the hospital and care centers as well as outside parking lots. This technology provides CHH’s operators with enhanced situational awareness, enabling proactive event response.

A New Level of Automation

Avigilon Unusual Motion Detection (UMD) technology uses AI in video search to bring a new level of automation to video security, helping to reduce hours of work reviewing recorded video to minutes. Without any pre-defined rules or setup, UMD technology is able to continuously learn what typical activity in the scene looks like, and then detect and flag unusual motion. This allows operators to search through large amounts of video faster, as UMD focuses their attention on the atypical events that may need further investigation.
