Agent Vi Cuts Investigation Times & Enhances Security at

Tulsa University

“The real-time detections, together with the automatic search which makes searching across a wide expanse and numerous cameras so simple, responded to our needs. Combined with the high detection success and low false alarm rate, we have greatly improved our level of security and become much more efficient in the field of investigating surveillance video.”

Assistant Director of Security Technology & Card Services, Tulsa University


The University of Tulsa (TU) offers over 100 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs to nearly 5,000 students. With multiple buildings and facilities across the campus, TU sought a surveillance solution that would monitor key areas and protect valuable artwork, among other assets. The security team specifically wanted the ability to quickly search through recorded video to identify events of interest.


Agent Vi’s Real-Time Event Detection and Video Search software are deployed at TU, integrated with hundreds of network cameras from Axis Communications. All the cameras feed to a central dispatch room manned 24/7 by security operators. The site employs OnSSI’s Ocularis CS as the VMS, and detections of suspicious objects, perimeter intrusions, sterile zone breaches and other security events generate an alert in Ocularis Client.


Agent Vi’s Real-Time Event Detection software transformed the surveillance system into a proactive tool that alerts security operators when an artwork is tampered with, or a suspicious object is left behind. Instant video notification enables security staff to view the event and dispatch an officer accordingly. TU also employs Agent Vi’s Video Search to reduce time spent searching through recorded video during time-sensitive investigations.

Agent Vi Revolutionizes Search through Stored Surveillance Video at North Hennepin Community College

“The query tools provided by Agent Vi’s video search solution have allowed us to slash our investigation times. In addition to the significant savings in resource hours, Agent Vi’s solution has helped to expose valuable information about events happening around campus, which were previously recorded but never viewed by anyone due to the lack of appropriate review tools.”

Director of Safety & Security, NHCC


North Hennepin Community College (NHCC) is located on a 97-acre campus in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, USA, and serves more than 15,000 students. With flexible evening and weekend scheduling, the security team must be alert around the clock. Therefore, NHCC sought an automated solution, to speed up the review of video captured by the surveillance system and more rapidly search stored footage containing campus incidents.


NHCC deployed Agent Vi’s video search solution integrated with fixed, dome and PTZ cameras from Axis Communications. All 60 cameras onsite are enabled with video analytics capabilities that allow rapid forensic search, investigation and business intelligence. The integration with Milestone XProtect Corporate enables video to be pulled from the video management system for forensic investigations. Video clips are easily exported as stand-alone files for passing on to law enforcement agencies.


Agent Vi’s video search capabilities have revolutionized NHCC’s forensic searches. Previously, security officers browsed through all the recorded video which was time-consuming. Now, the security officer defines parameters such as time, location, behavior and clothing color, and the video analytics solution undertakes a quick, automatic search which presents thumbnail results. A quick review of those search results allows the security officer to select the video segment associated with the incident.

“Agent Vi offers a fantastic technology, enabling us to cover more ground and make our campus safer. Agent Vi’s real-time event detection solution allows for a more effective and efficient utilization of staff, as our security guards receive alerts and then deal with the incidents, rather than sitting in the Security Operations Center and simply watching the video stream in the hope of spotting security breaches.”

Chief Information Security Officer, Stephen S. Wise Temple and Schools


Stephen S. Wise Temple and Schools, one of the largest American, Reform Jewish congregations with close to 1,700 children in its schools, has a campus encompassing an Early Childhood Center, an Elementary School, a Religious School, and two additional campuses housing its High School and Middle School. It is imperative to keep track of movement in critical areas of this large campus, so that the security team can identify security or safety incidents as they emerge, and effectively deploy and respond.


The Temple and Schools have taken a proactive approach in deploying a state-of-the-art video surveillance system, and Agent Vi’s real-time detection and alert software is an integral part of the system. The security staff is alerted to threats and security breaches on the campus as they unfold, allowing for instant responses and deployment of staff as necessary. The video analytics has been integrated into the surveillance infrastructure, which is overseen by a 24-hour Security Operations Center.


Agent Vi’s real-time video analytics solution significantly enhances the level of campus security. Agent Vi’s software has detected a number of instances where individuals have entered unauthorized areas. In these cases, security staff has been able to address the breaches immediately. Furthermore, the automatic detections reduce the need for constant observation of the live video stream, and as a result, fewer people can effectively monitor a far greater number of locations, greatly reducing operational costs while improving security.
