EasyConnect and VideoPush Highlight the exacqVision 6.4 Release

The new EasyConnect feature found in exacqVision 6.4 provides the power of IP cameras with the simplicity of analog. With EasyConnect, IP cameras are not only discovered through the exacqVision client, they can also be assigned IP addresses and then automatically connected to a recorder—all from the same place. exacqVision 6.4 also includes the new VideoPush expanded video wall feature which allows user to push cameras, layouts, tours, groups and even views to other client users or public view monitors (PVMs) with a simple drag-and-drop control. Other highlights of the latest release include multi-location archiving, live view export, case management export and over 130 new IP camera integrations. In addition to updating exacqVision, we’ve improved the exacqVision web browser client and Exacq Mobile app, and updated Enterprise System Manger (ESM). We are also pleased to announce the availability of our new E-Series Encoders.

The power of IP cameras with the simplicity of analog.

EasyConnectThe new EasyConnect feature allows users to find, assign and address certain IP cameras to their network automatically. The exacqVision client scans the network to find new IP cameras and, with a few clicks, the selected cameras are assigned IP addresses and connected to a server.  This feature saves time and greatly simplifies the process of adding IP cameras to a modern day, network-based video surveillance solution.

  • Eliminates need to use additional utilities
  • Reduces camera configuration time and effort
  • Makes connecting IP video cameras as easy as analog

EasyConnect supports IP cameras from multiple camera manufacturers with plans to expand compatibility to most or all of the leading brands. The initial launch includes support for Illustra and Illustra Flex cameras from American Dynamics, as well as support for IP cameras from Axis Communications and Arecont Vision. EasyConnect also works with the new E-Series line of encoders from Exacq Technologies.

EasyConnect from Exacq makes connecting to IP cameras as easy as analog.


More than just a video wall, VideoPush gives exacqVision Enterprise users the ability to instantly push selected cameras, layouts, tours, groups or entire views to another exacqVision client monitor, such as a public view monitor (PVM) or a video wall. Ideal for retail applications, VideoPush adds the opportunity for collaborative viewing of video between multiple locations and users. For example, when users identify a suspicious event occurring in one of their stores, the video can immediately be pushed directly to a video wall or to another exacqVision user’s monitor for immediate review of the situation to take the appropriate action.VideoPush Illustration


VideoPush is available in the exacqVision Enterprise VMS at no extra cost, with no limitation on the number of public view monitors or video wall connections.

Multi-Location Archiving

With exacqVision 6.4 advanced archiving, you can now archive video to multiple locations, such as the exacqVision S-Series storage servers or any CIFS network share. In addition, you can base your archive on camera, event type, or by setting up an archive schedule.Archive

Live View Image Export

With exacqVision 6.4 you can now export an image without having to leave the live view screen of the exacqVision client. Simply right-click and choose the “Save Image As..” option.

Case Management Export

Now all bookmarks in a case can be exported in one easy step, eliminating the work of exporting individual bookmarks. If exporting to an exacqPlayer .EXE file, bookmarks are individually indexed. If exporting to .AVI or .MOP formats, individual video files are created for each bookmarked video stream. bookmark export

New IP Camera Support

Client-Based Panoramic Dewarping

exacqVision 6.4 supports client-based dewarping of panoramic cameras. Camera-based dewarping provides the same view for all users and is resource intensive, recording multiple and possibly redundant video streams. Client-based dewarping gives every user independent PTZ control. Client-based panoramic dewarping is much more resource efficient, recording only one stream of video. Client-based panoramic dewarping is available on PC, web, and mobile clients. Currently, exacqVision 6.4 client-based dewarping is supported by these technology partners: Client-based dewarping partners

Improved Web & Mobile Clients

SpeedSearch is now available on the web client with exacqVision 6.4, providing an ideal interface for scrubbing through video over lower bandwidth connects. SpeedSearch Exacq Mobile version 3.8 now supports easier live monitoring, allowing you to set-up a tour of views. In addition, camera selection now supports long-press to clear and select new cameras, with better visual indication of selected cameras. Exacq Mobile

ESM Version 2.8

ESM 2.8 now supports mapping of active directory (AD/LDAP) groups to ESM server groups. Organizing ESM servers is now easier with nested ESM server groups, allowing you to define parent-child relationships. Users can only see servers in their group or child groups.

E-SeriesE-Series Encoders

We are excited to announce the launch of our new E-Series Encoders.

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.

Increased PTZ Control Responsiveness

exacqVision Joystick

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.

Client-Based Panoramic Dewarping

Supported client-based dewarping cameras and technology partners include:
