ACC: Providing the brains for your CCTV system

Ecl-ips videos demonstrate the power of the Avigilon Control Center


At Ecl-ips we never fail to be impressed by the power of the Avigilon Control Center (ACC) software and its ability to analyse images in different ways. By installing the ACC software, you can have amazing control over your CCTV system and it will assist you in meeting a range of needs when searching for events.

Avigilon Appearance Search video analytics technology is a sophisticated deep learning artificial intelligence (AI) search engine for video and last year the company made life much easier for you by creating more categorisation.  It sorts through hours of video with ease, to quickly locate a specific person or vehicle of interest across an entire site. For example, you can do searches based on a person’s gender and the colour of their clothes.

Gone are the days where you need to sort through hours of CCTV footage to find out where the guy in the red top and blue shorts went after he damaged your property or stole from your shop.  Within minutes you will have all this information at your fingertips making response time far quicker, helping you resolve the issue and limit further damage. The software sorts through hours of video with ease, to quickly locate a specific person or vehicle of interest across an entire site. Any images found through the search can be stored on the system for future use. While investigating critical events, time is of the essence, and security operators are often provided physical descriptions of the people involved.

Avigilon Appearance Search technology also incorporates the characteristics of a person’s face, enabling the technology to search for the same person, even if items such as their clothing change over time. The quick search capabilities of Avigilon Appearance Search technology enable operators to scan vast amounts of recorded video, efficiently grouping video data to help track a person’s or vehicle’s route, identify a previous and last-known location, and assist investigations.

One of the features of Appearance Search is that results can be exported by ACC while blurring all images of all other subjects other than the person of interest in the video. This will help you become standards-compliant with new data protection and privacy measures.

This video will explain how this process works:

Another tool you can use within ACC is the thumbnail search option which is designed to help dramatically improve event response times, and help you retrieve footage and images much quicker.  This could be useful for helping the police with enquiries or dealing with incidents of trespass or vandalism if you have had unwanted visitors to your site.
