Agent Vi Releases Next Generation Video Analytics

Version 3.0 includes new analytics for loitering detection, tailgating, counting and crowd detection, and object removal


New York, October 30, 2006 – Agent Video Intelligence Inc. , the global leader in enterprise-grade video analytics today announced the latest release of its next generation enterprise grade video analytics and surveillance middleware -- Agent Vi Release 3.0.

"Agent Vi 3.0 comes at an opportune time within the evolution of the video surveillance and business intelligence," stated Dieter Kondek, President and CEO of Agent Vi. "With video surveillance becoming mainstream across both the public and private sectors, enterprises as well as traditional customers are requiring sophisticated, proven, cost-effective video analytics technology as part of their overall security systems that most legacy CCTV venders aren't able to provide. We view version 3.0 as a watershed release for the entire security industry."

Agent Vi 3.0 supports an expanded video analysis feature set, including loitering detection, tailgating detection of both humans and objects, object and people counting, object removal detection, and group and crowd detection. In addition, Agent Vi provides enhanced Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) functionality with object tracking and tour mode support. The new release also enhances the overall performance of Agent Vi's core detection engines, upgrades its core baseline performance and significantly enhances the platform's functionality in marine environments.

Kondek continued, "We believe that Agent 3.0 is truly unique within the video intelligence and surveillance industry. Our Israel-based development team did a superb job slotting the new analytics enhancements into the server side of our environment – everything else remained the same. Hence, the upgrade and its added behaviors have no impact on the Agent Vi footprint. Our bandwidth consumption remains the same (15-20 KB) as does the Vi Agent edge utilization. Our customers will continue to receive the highest levels of analytics in the industry with no change to their existing infrastructures."

AgentVi 3.0 is currently in several major pilot and beta tests worldwide and will be generally available this December with special introductory and upgrade pricing.
