Hikvision, the world’s leading supplier of video surveillance products and solutions, is proud to announce that our ONVIF-conformant IP cameras now have the ability to seamlessly integrate with Avigilon’s award-winning Control Center Software. This integration now provides customers with the freedom to better choose the specific combination of products to best fits their needs.

Hikvision ONVIF-conformant IP camera models – bullet cameras, dome cameras, and box cameras – all boast a bevy of advanced features, such as high resolution, wide dynamic range, low light capability, ease of installation, and many more.  Moreover, our IP cameras provide users an open-standard based solution and great flexibility to select components for their security system.  With the Avigilon Control Center software, users can now remotely monitor and control most of the key features of their Hikvision IP cameras; such as PTZ, two-way audio, alarm inputs, outputs, etc. Advantages of the software include multi-megapixel and high dynamic imaging, HD recording and playback timeline, data protection and storage management, to name but a few.

“We are very proud to cooperate with Avigilon. Hikvision IP cameras already provide clear video, while the Avigilon Control Center is engineered to manage HD videos, and efficiently handle bandwidth and storage. Through this cooperation, both technologies are fully realized,” said Keen Yao, International Marketing Director of Hikvision. “Additionally, this cooperation with Avigilon will truly benefit our mutual customer base and helps them achieve a more flexible and scalable IP-based surveillance system.”

“As an innovative leader in high-definition video surveillance solutions, we believe openness benefits our customers and partners, and this integration will provide them access to the most appropriate solutions,” Keith Marett, Vice President of Marketing and Communications at Avigilon. “By ensuring our products are ONVIF-compliant, we are helping bring the industry closer to standardization.”
