- Normal video deletion rules apply after bookmark is deleted

Bookmarking allows you to easily find important video from the exacqVision client.

Organize your bookmarks into named cases.
Search cases to find related groups of bookmarks.
Use case management and bookmarking together for long term storage of critical evidence.
In exacqVision 6.2, we’ve added a “Support Diagnostics” option. This feature streamlines your technical support issues by automatically sending important log files, system information and your notes to an exacqVision technical support specialist who will reply online, usually within a single business day.
- Easily upload Support Diagnostics files
- Response target: < 1 business day.
- Faster than verbally relaying technical information
- Available 24/7/365
When you select the Support Diagnostics menu option, you simply choose the server and the log files you wish to report, then upload them to your case.
The upload button initiates the online Support Request Form with several fields pre-filled for you.
You will receive a confirmation with your case number, customer information, system information and a list of the support diagnostic files that were uploaded. Exacq Technical Support then reviews your files and responds with a solution or further diagnostic actions.
Improved Systems Grid
The new Systems page allows you to connect to your exacqVision servers from your client faster. This is specifically noticed by users who have high server counts. The updated Systems page also makes it easier to connect or disconnect to every server on the grid with just a single click.
With Transacq Search we’ve greatly simplified the serial data search feature in exacqVision 6.2, providing a tool to search important data such as cash register transactions synced with surveillance video.
In addition, you can set up a recording event and other actions based on serial data. For example, record video when liquor is purchased.
Setting up the search rules is easy with the new rule configuration screen.
Increased PTZ Control Responsiveness
Version 6.0 of the exacqVision VMS included smoother control and faster response for a number of IP PTZ cameras. With the 6.2 release, these improvements have now been expanded to include more camera manufacturers including Pelco, ACTi, Hikvision and UDP. You’ll really notice these improvements when using the exacqVision Surveillance Keyboard.
Expanded Support for Client-Side Dewarping with Panoramic/Fisheye Cameras
Exacq continues to build on its list of supported panoramic or “fisheye” cameras that allow for client-side dewarping. With client-side dewarping the entire panoramic field of view is always available–whether the user is in live or recorded mode. This works with the exacqVision client, the web browser client and even with the Exacq Mobile app. Client-side panoramic dewarping is more resource efficient, recording one video stream and eliminating the possibility of redundant recording. Version 6.2 of exacqVision adds client-side dewarping for the Illustra 825 and the Samsung SNV-7010 fisheye/panoramic cameras.
Supported client-based dewarping cameras and technology partners include:
New IP Camera Support
