Appearance Search deployed in schools

Avigilon has been selected by Fulton County School System in Georgia to enhance safety for over 100 schools. Fulton is the fourth largest school district in Georgia with over 96,000 students and more than 12,000 full-time employees. To help enhance safety, Fulton has installed a full Avigilon surveillance solution that includes cameras with self-learning video analytics, network video recorders, and Avigilon Control Center (ACC) video management software with Appearance Search technology. Fulton is also deploying Avigilon Access Control Manager to secure physical access points, providing an integrated security solution for the district.

Avigilon Appearance Search video analytics technology uses a sophisticated deep learning artificial intelligence (AI) search engine to sort through hours of footage . This technology allows operators to click on a button and search for all instances of a person or vehicle across all cameras on a site. This can save the schools time and effort during critical investigations as Appearance Search technology intelligently analyses video data, helping to track a person’s or vehicle’s route and identify previous and last-known locations.

Paul Hildreth, Emergency Operations, Safety and Security for Fulton, stated, ‘At Fulton County Schools the safety of our staff and students is paramount . We chose Avigilon because of the capabilities it offers in its advanced video analytics search technologies, including Appearance Search. The analytics are easy to set up and use, and can save us valuable time and effort, ultimately making our schools a safer place for generations to come.’
