Avigilon Overview

Avigilon offers an end-to-end solution of cameras, recorders, video analytics and access control. The company, one of the fastest growing in the past decade, was acquired by Motorola in March 2018. Originally, Avigilon was most well known for its high-resolution cameras (up to 30MP) but the company has increasingly focused on its video analytics / deep learning offerings as a key differentiator. Additionally, Avigilon is one of the few large video surveillance manufacturers with a tightly controlled channel and strictly enforced barriers against online sales.
