Vi-Search is Agent Vi’s innovative video search and analysis software, which enables rapid and effective retrieval and presentation of specific video segments, events and data from vast amounts of recorded video.
While video recording is a basic component of most surveillance networks, the recorded video is rarely utilized due to the lack of an automated and time-efficient solution that enables search and analysis of such stored video. In response, Vi-Search automates the search and analysis process and allows for true leveraging of the valuable information contained in the stored video.
The software analyzes the video stream, generates metadata describing the scene content, and allows for later retrieval and analysis of the video through an automated search within the stored metadata.
Based on Agent Vi's open architecture, pure software approach, Vi-Search seamlessly integrates with a wide range of edge devices and video management systems, in both new and existing surveillance networks.
Vi-Search offers an extensive set of intuitive search parameters and capabilities, including search by:
Vi-Search provides search results in multiple unique displays, offering a range of different search and analysis functionalities:
The “Event Thumbnails” view enables a search for particular events or targets in a specified group of cameras and within a distinct time frame. Suitable for forensic analysis and investigations, the search results are displayed in thumbnails, with each thumbnail representing a query match highlighting the relevant target (person, vehicle or static object). For each result the recorded event video can be instantly played back, and the user can choose to save or export each search result.
The “Statistics Report” view presents search results graphically for a specified group of cameras. Suitable for business intelligence and operational efficiency applications, Vi-Search can conduct people or vehicle counting and generate statistical reports according to distinct time frames (minutes, hours, days, weeks, months etc).
The “Target Path / Location” view displays the motion paths of moving targets (persons or vehicles) or an overlay indicating the location of objects that were added to or removed from a defined area. Suitable for both forensic analysis and time-critical security and law enforcement applications, users have immediate access to the video segment relating to each path / location.
The “Heat Map” view offers a visualization of the traffic within the camera’s field of view. Suitable for business intelligence and operational efficiency applications, particularly for the retail market, users can make operational decisions based on the locations of the highest and lowest traffic areas.
The “Site Map” view is designed to project motion data gathered from individual cameras deployed at one site onto a complete site map. By using "Site Map" view, a user can see the "Target Path / Location" and "Heat Map" functionalities on a larger map, showing multiple camera displays in one view.
The “Video Summary” view enables debriefing of multiple search results through one condensed clip by displaying all results as a single continuous clip. Using this view, events which occurred over the span of a few days can be condensed into a video clip of a few minutes only.
