~Integration with Virdi’s biometric system provides additional authentication for sites requiring a high level of security~

VANCOUVER, CANADA, June 8, 2017 - Avigilon Corporation (“Avigilon”) (TSX: AVO), provider of trusted security solutions, today announced it will preview the new Avigilon Access Control Manager system integration with Virdi’s biometric fingerprint reader technology at IFSEC 2017.

Avigilon’s Access Control Manager (ACM) provides a flexible and scalable solution designed to keep people, property and assets safe. The integration of ACM with Virdi’s biometric authentication adds an additional form of identification to high security environments. This enhanced level of verification is supported by Virdi’s patented Live and Fake Fingerprint Detection Technology, which uses human capacitance, infrared light and advanced algorithms, to deliver advanced accuracy and speed at access points.

“Biometric access control is a rapidly growing requirement for securing facilities,” said Cory Bellamy, Virdi International Managing Director. “We're excited to be integrating with Avigilon’s Access Control Manager, as it will provide our customers with a solution that enhances their security systems."

“With the continued fast-paced growth of Avigilon’s access control solutions, integrating with Virdi’s system opens up more options for our customers,” said James Henderson, Avigilon’s Chief Operating Officer. “This provides them with an added layer of security for accurate and fast identity recognition in high security environments.”  

The Virdi USB fingerprint reader can be connected to a client machine for quick and easy enrollment, while users can configure and manage biometric identities directly from Avigilon’s ACM software.

Avigilon’s ACM system integration with Virdi’s biometric fingerprint reader technology will be available to order in the third quarter of this year.

Although Avigilon has attempted to identify factors that may cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those disclosed in the forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, predicted, estimated or intended. Also, many of the factors are beyond the control of Avigilon. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.
