Clovis, California & Tel Aviv, April 8, 2015 – Pelco by Schneider Electric, a leading manufacturer and provider of video surveillance systems, and Agent Video Intelligence (Agent Vi), the leading global provider of open architecture video analytics software, announce the integration of the Pelco VideoXpert™ video management platform with savVi™, Agent Vi’s video analytics platform.
VideoXpert is Pelco’s latest Video Management System (VMS) that is the Gateway to Performance for customers. VideoXpert was designed with a ground breaking User Interface, an intuitive design that requires very little training, an open architecture for a variety of integration options, scalability through its modular design and high reliability. VideoXpert carries forward the traditional integration strategies employed by existing Pelco VMS products and, at the same time, introduces a UI plugin API that enables Pelco partners to carry their user experience forward, directly into the VideoXpert Ops Center client, providing a unified solution. This sets a new bar, immediately extending the functionality available through the Ops Center and the solutions Pelco and its partners can provide.
savVi, Agent Vi’s unified video analytics software solution, boasts a set of advanced, automated video analysis tools that provide for the immediate detection and extraction of events and valuable data from surveillance footage, replacing the manual and time-consuming tasks traditionally employed to monitor live video feeds or sift through recorded video. By employing savVi, users can make optimal use of their surveillance systems and allocate their time and attention in a more effective manner, thus increasing the return on investment in the surveillance system, as well as improving overall security, safety and business operations.
The integration allows the full range of savVi’s capabilities on every camera connected to the surveillance system through Pelco VideoXpert. Additionally, a deep integration with Pelco VideoXpert Ops Center for real-time detections and alerts enables full event management through the Ops Center. This includes event notification, simplified configuration, triggered recording, and more.
“The VideoXpert VMS platform is the ultimate core solution for capturing and reviewing real-time and recorded video and multi-system information” said John Raudabaugh, Senior Manager, Product Integration, at Pelco by Schneider Electric. “We’re very happy to be working with Agent Vi and the extended video analytics capabilities their tools bring to VideoXpert functionality.”
“Agent Vi continues to expand its strategic partnerships, with the addition of Pelco allowing us to further expand our market reach not only to future Pelco customers, but also to a vast, existing installed-base of Pelco users,” states Itsik Kattan, CEO of Agent Vi. “The Pelco-Agent Vi integration allows our joint customers to enjoy a complete end-to-end surveillance solution that boasts the highest performance video analytics capabilities.”
Pelco and Agent Vi will be exhibiting the integrated solution at ISC West, on 15 to 17 April, at the Sands Expo Center, Las Vegas, NV., USA. Visit Agent Vi in the Pelco booth, #18037.
