Version 3.6 of exacqVision Video Management Software has just been released. This latest release, compatible with all exacqVision Hybrid and IP video surveillance systems, incorporates new features and enhancements, and continues our quest for rapid, incremental updates.
Version 3.6 is available for download here. Key features in the 3.6 Release:
- Enhanced Smart Search
- Multi-System User Configuration
- Basler IP camera support
- IQeye 4-series IP camera support
- PCSC Access Control integration
Here are some of the features in detail:
Enhanced Smart Search
Smart Search, sometimes referred to as ‘museum search’ functionality, has been substantially enhanced in version 3.6. Smart Search adds quick and detailed granularity to a search result, enabling the viewing, scrubbing, saving and exporting of just the video search information desired. Smart Search works on all cameras: analog or IP, standard or Megapixel.
On the search page, a new “Brain” icon has been added to the toolbar:
With any camera, when Smart Search is selected, a grid appears. Simply use the mouse to fill in the grid of the desired area of the camera view, and Smart Search will quickly find just the video that has changed within the grid area.
The results of the Smart Search then appear as orange in the timeline:
Timeline after standard search, with blue bars showing areas of motion:
Timeline after Smart Search, with orange bars showing motion within the selected grid:
While the Smart Search function is selected, the user can scrub, play forward and reverse, save, and export just the Smart Searched (orange bar) video. Fast and easy, this enhanced functionality enables rapid searching and exporting of just the video information desired.
Here is the exacqVision tutorial on using Smart Search:
Multi-System User Configuration
New to Version 3.6 is the Enterprise Server option. This new option, enabled per-server, adds functionality unique to user and server management across an enterprise deployment. Multi-System User Configuration is available in Version 3.6 and is the first of several features to be added to the Enterprise Server option. Multi-System User Config enables fast and easy user account management across any number of exacqVision servers.
With the Version 3.6 release a new item, Multi-System User Config, has been included in the server tree on the Configuration page:
Creating a new account, deleting an account or changing an existing account is done quickly just once, and then applied to all selected servers with a single push of a button. This feature works in all enterprise deployments without the need for existing LDAP or Active Directory implementation.
New – Basler IP camera support
Support has been added for the entire line of Basler IP cameras. Basler IP cameras range in resolution from VGA to 2 Mpixel, all with day/night models available, and are distinguished by their compact physical size. All Basler IP cameras utilize H.264 compression.
The Basler IP camera models supported in exacqVision Version 3.6 are the BIP-640c/c-dn, BIP-1000c/c-dn, BIP-1300c/c-dn, and BIP-1600c/c-dn. The press release on the exacqVision-Basler IP camera support is here.
New – IQeye 4-Series IP camera support
Adding to our existing support of IQeye cameras, Version 3.6 adds support for the new 4-Series line of low-cost IP cameras from IQeye.
The IQeye 4-Series provides IQeye-quality video, resolutions from VGA to 2 Mpixel, compact, sturdy housings (both standard and dome), Power-Over Ethernet, and a low price point. The 4-Series models supported in exacqVision Version 3.6 include the IQeye 4-Series Standard cameras and the IQeye 4-Series Dome cameras.
PCSC Access Control Integration
exacqVision Version 3.6 adds integration support for PCSC Access Control systems. PCSCâ€™s access control system is distinguished by their Fault Tolerant Technology, with redundant host, controllers, and communication. When combined with exacqVision VMS software it makes for a unique, fault tolerant access control and IP video surveillance system under a single user interface. Details on the PCSC LiNC-VIEW integration are here. The press release on the exacqVision-PCSC integration is here.
With this release we continue to make rapid progress with exacqVision, and incremental releases have hit about every 2 months. A large number of new features have been added in a short period of time. You can see the full release history of exacqVision here:
