Instant ‘Find Camera’ F3 Function Key
A new shortcut Function Key feature has been added to enable instant display of any camera in the enterprise system into any window.
Whether the exacqVision client is operating on a single monitor and connected to a single server, or whether connected to a large enterprise of dozens of servers, and powering many monitors, the new F3 function key provides the ability to quickly select any camera.
Among the many applications of this feature, it is useful when following an individual through a large building, casino or retail store. Replacing the functionality of a Pelco or American Dynamics keypad, this feature allows for quick selection of specific cameras by the operator to enable following the individual. The following YouTube clip gives a brief overview of the capabilities of this feature:

The exacq-WinDSX integration allows stored and live video from the exacqVision servers to be accessed within the DSX software.
Real time video can be automatically displayed in response to alarm events. Live and recorded video can be accessed from the alarm acknowledgement screen or from any input/output or camera icon. Recorded video can be viewed while running a History report. Live and recorded video can be accessed from Alarm Maps though a right-click on an I/O or Camera icon. Live and recorded video can be accessed from the Alarm and Monitor windows through a right-click on a given event. Live and recorded video can be accessed from the Input and Output control screens.
New International Localization Support
Version 3.4 adds four more language localizations to the exacqVision client:
- Castilian Spanish
- Chilean Spanish
We utilize a Pootle translation server for collaborative localizations, the same method used by software packages such as Firefox, WordPress and OpenOffice. This enables our international partners to have specific localized versions for their markets. With the addition of these four, the total number of localizations so far is 12, with many more under development.
With this release we continue to make rapid progress with exacqVision, and incremental releases have hit about every 2 months. Through these releases over the last year weâ€™ve added a large number of new features. You can see the full release history here.
As always, the latest versions of exacqVision client and server software can easily and quickly be copied over existing versions while retaining all user settings. The latest versions can always be downloaded from our Downloads page, or you can click on â€˜Check for Updatesâ€˜ within the â€˜Aboutâ€˜ box in the exacqVision software.
exacqVision Server software is available in both Windows and Linux versions, and the exacqVision client software is available in Windows, Linux and Macintosh native versions. Any version of exacqVision client can connect to any version of exacqVision server.
