Report from ISC West 2009

We just finished up the ISC West 2009 tradeshow in Las Vegas, held Wednesday through Friday of this last week. 

We had a great show. Our resellers, Reps, international distributors, and their customers packed the booth the entire time, and we showed several new things:

exacqVision EL – Embedded Hybrid NVR Appliance
exacqVision ELOur upcoming embedded Linux hybrid NVR appliance, the exacqVision EL, was shown for the first time.  exacqVision EL offers all of the functionality of the exacqVision software in a compact, cool-running chassis.  The backplane has BNC connectors for 16 analog video inputs and 2 spot monitor outputs, up to 24 IP cameras, and audio and alarm I/O.    Highly energy efficient, exacqVision EL draws just 35W when fully loaded with cameras and running the client software, or one-fifth to one-tenth what typical NVR servers require for constant power, and ensures cool-running operation and low cost of ownership.    exacqVision EL utilizes the latest Intel Atom processor, the same processor widely used in netbooks, with Atom-optimized exacqVision code. exacqVision EL is ideal for both stand-alone applications and as part of large enterprise surveillance systems. exacqVision EL will begin shipping in late May.

exacqVision Version 3.4
The recent exacqVision 3.4 release was on display with new features including the ‘F3’ find camera function that emulates a matrix keypad; support for a number of new IP cameras; and additional language localizations for international customers.

IP Camera & Access Control Integration
Our larger booth afforded more room to connect a wider variety of IP cameras with which to demo our software. We showed integration with the latest H.264 HD cameras from Axis; the new MegaDome megapixel cameras from Arecont Vision; the new VB-C500D from Canon, and the upcoming WV-NS502S Megapixel Dome h.264 camera from Panasonic (we had one of only three units in existence).  We had other recent IP camera models connected from IQeye, Sony, StarDot (who was showing exacqVision in their booth), ACTi, ioimage, IPX, and Vivotek.  We also showed integration with Lenel OnGuard and DSX access control systems, providing a highly cost-effective solution for adding video management to access control systems. We also were a presenter at the PCSC 7th Annual International Partnership Symposium.  Our complete list of integration partners is here.

Upcoming Features
As always, we had a station showing works-in-progress, features that will be coming soon; this time featuring integrated Mapping, as well as Global User Management for managing user accounts across any number of servers in an enterprise video surveillance deployment.

Sales Meeting
We held our semi-annual sales meeting Wednesday evening for our Manufacturer Reps and International Distributors at the Gordon Biersch Brewery.  Good food, good beer, good presentations and discussions all around.

ISC West 2009 was a decidedly smaller show this year, but it couldn’t have been better for us and our channel.  The people that were there were focused on business, and the quality of leads and visitors to our booth is the best we’ve seen at any show.  We certainly appreciate everyone that did stop by and spend time with us.  Below are some pictures from the event.  Click for larger views, or click here for the full set of pictures.
