savVi 5.3 Released including New Features & Integrations

savVi™ is Agent Vi’s unified video analytics software solution that offers a wide variety of analytics functionalities through a single, easy to use platform that integrates with existing or new surveillance systems. Featuring real-time event detection, video search and business intelligence applications, savVi provides a complete solution to the diverse video analytics requirements of multiple vertical markets.

savVi version 5.3 has been released. savVi Event Dispatcher is a new feature which enables notification of real-time events via a range of mobile communication applications (email, SMS, MMS or other application). The Event Dispatcher enhances the users’ ability to respond appropriately to emerging events, in real-time, when guards are on patrol, or otherwise occupied and not present in the control room.

savVi 5.3 also offers a number of new integrations, including with VMS platforms OnSSI Ocularis and Pelco VideoXpert. Furthermore, savVi is now integrated with Immix, the video alarm management software offered by SureView Systems (further information in articles below on integrations with Pelco VideoXpert and SureView Systems’ Immix platform).

Agent Vi Cuts Investigation Times & Enhances Security at Tulsa University

The University of Tulsa (TU) sought a surveillance solution that would monitor key areas and protect valuable artwork, as well as enable rapid search through recorded video to identify events of interest. Accordingly, systems integrator JTI Security deployed Agent Vi’s Real-Time Event Detection and Video Search software, seamlessly integrating with the surveillance system at the site comprised of over 400 network cameras from Axis Communications and OnSSI’s Ocularis CS as the VMS recording and viewing application.

Agent Vi’s Real-Time Event Detection software has transformed the surveillance system into a proactive tool that sends alerts to the security operators when an artwork is tampered with or removed. This increases the productivity of the security team who no longer monitor the live video feeds. Furthermore, Agent Vi’s “Left object” rule alerts the dispatch center to suspicious objects. Instant video notification enables security staff to view the object in real-time and a security officer is dispatched when required.

Agent Vi’s Video Search functionalities have reduced the time spent by TU when searching through recorded video during time-sensitive investigations. When campus artwork was found damaged, TU undertook an automatic search to investigate when the artwork was damaged and by whom. The video review – which would have taken hours – was accomplished in less than 5 minutes with Agent Vi’s forensic search capabilities.

William Redding, Assistant Director of Security Technology & Card Services at TU, stated that “Agent Vi offered everything that TU was looking for in a video analytics product. The real-time detections, together with the automatic search which makes searching across a wide expanse and numerous cameras so simple, responded to our needs. Combined with the high detection success and low false alarm rate, we have greatly improved our level of security and become much more efficient in the field of investigating surveillance video.”
