Agent Vi's 4.0 Analytics and Auto Calibration Examined

Author: John Honovich, Published on Mar 01, 2011

In this note, we review the key features and positioning of Agent Vi's System 4.0 real time alerting release. It includes 2 key features that are major improvements from the previous 3.3 release: (1) Automatic Scene Learning and (2) Repetitive Movement Auto Masking. Both of these address key concerns we had in our 2010 Agent Vi alerting test. At the end of the note we examine competitive positioning and contrast to VideoIQ and ioimage.

The Automatic Scene Learning functionality provides auto calibration, designed to eliminate the need for having a subject walk through the field of view while an operator configures the analytics. Agent Vi reports a few key aspects to this feature:
