March 10, 2015 Hikvision, the worldwide leader in innovative video surveillance products and solutions, together with Agent Video Intelligence (Agent Vi), the leading global provider of open architecture video analytics software, have announced strategic cooperation to integrate their products to allow Agent Vi’s embedded component to run on Hikvision cameras. The integration enables end users to run Agent Vi’s full range of video analytics solutions on up to 200 Hikvision cameras simultaneously per single server.
Cameras from Hikvision’s 4 series Smart IP camera range are the first to be included in the integration. The cameras are designed to fully meet all professional market requirements for efficient bandwidth and storage utilization, as well as unparalleled image quality and customer convenience. With 1.3/2/3MP resolution in bullet, dome and box styles available, the cameras provide versatile solutions for users’ different needs.
Agent Vi’s advanced video analytics platform, savVi™, 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. savVi offers the widest set of video analytics functionalities incorporated in a single product, including real-time event detection, video search and business intelligence applications.
Through the integrated solution, Agent Vi’s software component is embedded inside the Hikvision cameras, allowing customers to deploy Agent Vi’s video analytics in an optimal set up that minimizes hardware requirements and eases deployment.
“The strategic cooperation between Hikvision and Agent Vi allows Agent Vi to expand its reach to a very significant share of the global surveillance market, strengthening Agent Vi’s position as the leading global provider of video analytics,” comments Itsik Kattan, CEO of Agent Vi. “Hikvision users will benefit from the integrated solution which offers them the most comprehensive and reliable video analytics solutions on the market. The Hikvision-Agent Vi integration allows the running of a full set of video analytics functionalities on hundreds of cameras per server, making the price point for the overall solution very attractive.”
Keen Yao, International Marketing Director at Hikvision, comments, “With the embedded video analytics in Hikvision cameras, the new solution enables our users to better manage their system and help them locate critical events, to maximize security efficiency. Looking forward, Hikvision will continue to cooperate with Agent Vi to expand the integration and include more Hikvision camera models in the future.”
