Press Release Body: Stockholm, Sweden - October 24, 2007: Agent Video Intelligence,
Inc. (Agent Vi), provider of pure video analytics for business intelligence and
enterprise security solutions, today announced that it has been awarded the
prestigious Detektor International Award 2007 for Innovative Achievement in CCTV
Products. The awards were announced in conjunction with the opening of the Sectech
Exhibition & Conference for security professionals last night in Stockholm, Sweden.
"We\'re extremely grateful to receive this award from Detektor International in

underscored in the past year by the seventy-plus new customers in over twenty-five
countries from the business intelligence and security surveillance sectors, and

organizations to utilize a single, existing server to deploy the same number of
Detektor International is a leading security technology trade magazine for the EMEA
market. The Detektor International Awards were introduced seven years ago to honor
those products and manufacturers that have contributed particularly innovative,
original and/or new technological designs and developments to the industry. An
important contributing factor to the reputation of the Detektor International Award
is that manufacturers cannot apply for the award. Selection is carried out
exclusively by a jury comprising eight independent professionals, all associated
with the editorial board of Detektor International, from four different countries
(Sweden, Denmark, Norway and UK,), who have followed new products from around the
world over the past year. As in previous years there were three categories: CCTV,
Access Control, and Alarm Products.
Agent Vi, which is headquartered in New York City, recently moved its expanded R&D
staff to a spacious new research and development facility near Tel Aviv.
