Agent Video Intelligence (Agent Vi) has released innoVi, a cloud-based video analytics Software as a Service (SaaS). innoVi initially includes a variety of real-time video analytics applications designed to analyze video captured by surveillance cameras and automatically detect and alert for security breaches.
innoVi is based on Agent Vi's patented image processing architecture that distributes the image processing task between an edge device and a server. By employing Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) cloud infrastructure, no dedicated servers are required on site for video analytics. Agent Vi’s architecture eliminates the need to stream video to the cloud, making the solution capable of handling low bandwidth environments and allowing an unlimited number of cameras in multiple remote locations.
