Avigilon Announces AI-Powered H5 Camera Development

By: John Honovich, Published on Sep 19, 2018

Avigilon will be showcasing "next-generation AI" at next week's ASIS GSX.

In an atypical move, the company is not actually releasing these products any time soon but they "announced the development of its future H5 camera line."

Based on speaking with Avigilon, we examine:

  • How the upcoming H5 will compare to the existing H4 cameras and analytics
  • What Avigilon plans to show
  • The benefits and drawbacks of such an announcement
  • How Avigilon compares to Dahua and Hikvision AI
  • How Avigilon compares to Milestone and Axis AI
  • 2018 strange year for analytics, 2019 outlook
