Avigilon Overview

Avigilon offers an end to end solution of IP cameras, encoders, VMS software and analytics. The company is best known for super high resolution cameras (up to 30MP). Combined with some of the industry's most restricted dealer access, Avigilon is one of the fastest growing companies in all of surveillance. However, Avigilon has been criticized for their shady marketing practices.
