Agent Video Intelligence (Agent Vi), the global provider of open architecture video analytics solutions, announces the launch of innoVi Edge – a compact appliance which enables any IP surveillance camera to connect to Agent Vi’s cloud-based video analytics service, innoVi.
Leveraging state of the art machine learning technology, innoVi performs real-time detections of security and safety events without the need for calibration, tweaking, or setup typically required by traditional analytics solutions. innoVi is based on Agent Vi’s patented distributed video analytics architecture that splits the video processing task between an edge component at the remote site network and a cloud-based server. This unique approach offers revolutionary analytics performance while eliminating the need to stream video to the cloud. With the introduction of innoVi Edge, installers can now extend innoVi’s exceptional detection accuracy, minimal false alerts, and ease of use to any ONVIF / RTSP-compliant IP camera, regardless of make and model.
innoVi Edge features
innoVi Edge (Model 200) is purpose-built for innoVi specification by US-based BCDVideo, an industry-leading global manufacturer of video recording appliances. The appliance enables installers to connect 10 to 40 ONVIF / RTSP IP cameras (depending on frame rate and resolution) to innoVi cloud service. innoVi Edge simplifies the installation process for new or take-over projects by giving installers one device type to work with regardless of number or model of cameras at a given site. The appliance is delivered preconfigured with Agent Vi’s software and comes with a standard 3-year warranty.
Itsik Kattan, CEO of Agent Vi comments that “The introduction of innoVi Edge dramatically expands the addressable market for innoVi, our advanced video analytics cloud-based service. Via innoVi Edge, any customer with new or existing IP cameras can enjoy the most advanced video analytics service on the market. This offering will be especially attractive to Central Monitoring Stations (CMSs), Alarm Receiving Centres (ARCs) and Remote Video Receiving Centres (RVRC), who seek to grow their monitored customer base by employing innoVi’s first-class offering. Furthermore, we are delighted with our partnership with BCDVideo, a well-known and reputable hardware manufacturer in the surveillance industry offering customised products, who can guarantee our commitments to our customers on product quality and level of service.”
