Omnicast and Security Center & Agent Vi Video Analytics Solutions Integration

Uniquement en anglais

Agent Vi has partnered with Genetec to offer end-to-end intelligent video surveillance solutions for real-time analytics, forensic search and business intelligence applications. As a member of Genetec’s Technology Partner Program, Agent Vi’s video analytics solutions – Vi-System and Vi-Search – are integrated with Genetec’s IP Surveillance solutions, Omnicast and Security Center. This integration enables Omnicast and Security Center to receive, display and manage real-time events as well as archive video for forensic analysis and business intelligence purposes.

Genetec's Omnicast and Security Center IP Video Surveillance Solutions with Agent Vi's Vi-System and Vi-Search

Vi-System  is integrated with Omnicast 4.5 or higher and with Security Center 5.1 or higher, enabling the receipt of alerts generated by Vi-System. The integration supports various event management features, such as triggered recording, generating bookmarks, sending PTZ cameras to associated presets, activation of outputs and more.

Vi-Search is integrated with Omnicast and Security Center, enabling rapid search and analysis of video stored and managed by Omnicast and Security Center. Search queries are performed using Agent Vi's dedicated Vi-Search Client, and the playback results are retrieved from the video stored by Omnicast/ Security Center. While Vi-Search is responsible for storing the index of video segments, the video itself is always stored in the Omnicast / Security Center video archive.Vi-Search Offline enables importing and rapid indexing of video clips from external systems. All search parameters and functionalities of Vi-Search can be applied to the imported video files.

Agent Vi's Integration Process with Omnicast and Security Center

Both Vi-System and Vi-Search can be deployed in two setups - Optimized and Flexible.Optimized Offering
The Optimized Offering utilizes Agent Vi's distributed architecture which splits the video processing between a compatible edge device and Vi-Server (Agent Vi's central server), achieving high performance with minimal dedicated hardware and bandwidth requirements. This unique architecture capitalizes on the advantages of both edge-based analytics and server-based central management.Architectural Highlights

  • High-detection quality by running image processing algorithms inside the edge device
  • Central server management allowing centralized setup, rule/query linking and more
  • Minimal bandwidth as video transmission from the edge device to the analytics server is not required
  • Minimal server hardware (up to 200 cameras running on a standard Quad Core processor)
  • Superior camera performance due to low CPU consumption of Vi-Agent (embedded video analytics component), allowing multiple functionalities per camera

Flexible OfferingAgent Vi has developed a Flexible Offering that can analyze any camera being recorded by Omnicast / Security Center. In this solution, a server component called Vi-Agent Proxy (VAP) pulls video directly from Omnicast / Security Center, decodes the video and analyzes it.

Vi-System

Person

Person crossing a line Detects a person crossing a predefined line
Crowding Detects if people in a predefined area exceed a predefined density %
Person tailgating Detects a person illegally following an authorized person through a secure entry
Loitering Detects person(s) lingering in a predefined area for longer than a predefined time
Grouping Detects if people in a predefined area exceed a predefined number

Vehicle
Vehicle moving in area Detects a vehicle moving in a predefined area
Vehicle crossing a line Detects a vehicle crossing a predefined line
Stopped vehicle Detects a vehicle stopped in a predefined area
Tailgating vehicle Detects a vehicle illegally following an authorized vehicle through a secure entry

Static Object
Suspicious object Detects an object unattended for longer than a predefined time in a predefined area
Traffic obstacle Detects a target of any size that has entered and stopped in a predefined area for longer than a predefined time
Asset protection Detects the removal of a predefined asset from the field of view

Counting
Count people Counts people crossing a predefined line (bidirectional)

PTZ
Motion detection on preset tour Detects a person / vehicle moving in an area and/or crossing a line predefined in a preset position of a PTZ camera's virtual tour
Automatic tracking Locks a PTZ camera onto a detected moving target (person / vehicle) by controlling the camera's Pan Tilt Zoom, and tracks that target
Static camera to PTZ camera handoff After detection on the fixed camera, the fixed camera hands off the target to the PTZ camera which locks onto the target and tracks it
3D Masking Detection block mask adjusted to all PTZ dimensions

Camera tampering
Obscuring
Camera shifted
Saturation
Low light
Camera disconnection
