The discreet and powerful 1 and 2 MP HD Micro Dome cameras ease the transition from analog to high-definition

VANCOUVER, May 1, 2013 /CNW/ - Avigilon (TSX:AVO), a leader in high-definition (HD) and megapixel video surveillance solutions, today announced the world's smallest HD Dome camera. The small yet powerful 1 and 2 megapixel (MP) HD Micro Dome cameras open up the advantages of HD surveillance to budget-conscious installations requiring discreet cameras.

"Stores, hotels, office buildings and restaurants want discreet cameras that provide exceptional image detail. Traditionally, you could get one or the other. Now with our HD Micro Dome, you get both," said Rick Ramsay, senior product manager at Avigilon. "With this introduction, small and medium-sized businesses can easily transition from analog to HD surveillance."

Innovative Design
Unique to the HD Micro Dome camera is the patent-pending smart cable design that enables the camera's discreet size. By designing the camera's intelligence into the smart cable, Avigilon is able to provide the smallest HD dome camera in the industry. Slightly larger than a golf ball, the discreet HD Micro Dome and the smart cable weigh a combined 70 grams. This small, lightweight camera will ease the transition from analog to HD for end users.

Big Detail
The HD Micro Dome provides a horizontal angle view of 86 degrees at 30 images per second. With an IP66 rating, the HD Micro Dome camera can be used in indoor and outdoor environments. The ONVIF compliant camera is the latest addition to Avigilon's next generation H.264 platform and can be coupled with Avigilon Control Center or other leading video management software suites.

Availability
The indoor and outdoor HD Micro Dome camera with smart cable technology was designed specifically for discreet, budget-conscious installations, like retail stores, office buildings, restaurants and hotels, that want to upgrade their surveillance to high-definition. The HD Micro Dome will begin shipping in August 2013. For more information on product availability please contact a local sales representative at avigilon.com/sales.
