Surveillance video analytics technology is a sophisticated deep-learning AI software that is changing the traditional investigative playbook for police departments. Search Appearance saves police and security guards precious investigative time as they are able to quickly sort through hours of video surveillance footage in a matter of minutes, identifying and tracking suspicious persons and vehicles and creating a narrative timeline and breadcrumb trail.


Integrated with Avigilon Control Center (ACC) 7 and ACC™ 6 Enterprise edition software, Avigilon cameras with self-learning video analytics and select Avigilon Network Video Recorders (NVRs). INITIATE SEARCHES BASED ON PHYSICAL DESCRIPTIONS Allows operators to search for a person or vehicle by selecting certain specific physical descriptions, including gender, hair color, clothing color and age categorization for people and vehicle sub-type and color for vehicles.


Initiate a search for a person or vehicle of interest across one site, then continue the search for the same subject of interest by seamlessly transitioning from one site to the next site that uses the same version of ACC software. FACIAL ANALYTICS INCLUDED IN SEARCH Incorporating the unique characteristics of a person’s face enables the Appearance Search technology to understand that it is searching for the same person, even if items such as their clothing change over time. PLAYBACK, BOOKMARK & EXPORT TOOLS Build a comprehensive set of video evidence from multiple video sources, to create a powerful narrative of events.
