Watch the exacqVision 7.0 Release Overview video
exacqVision 7.0 introduces Camera Links, which allow exacqVision users to configure overlay controls that will display when hovering over a camera in live view. Camera Links give exacqVision Professional and Enterprise users the ability to put their most important commands at their fingertips and improve their response time to critical alarms and events.
Camera Links are completely customizeable. Users can adjust the text color, font, style, transparency and location on screen to fit the specific camera view needs from the camera settings page. Under the associations tab, users can select the available controls, associated controls and display options.
The overlay controls include:
- Audio inputs and outputs
- Alarm outputs
- Input triggers
- Soft triggers
- Serial data
- Manual record
EasyConnect Status Messages
The EasyConnect feature on the exacqVision VMS software allows users to find, assign, address and connect certain IP cameras to their network automatically. Camera connection in exacqVision 7.0 has been improved to show more detailed connection status feedback when connecting Illustra IP cameras and exacqVision E-Series encoders. There are now more than 20 unique status messages. Each message is color-coded for fast identification of issues. Users can hover over the status for troubleshooting guidance. Connection messages include:
- Duplicate IP address
- Address not responding
- Address found but device not responding
- Wrong username/password
- Video not streaming
- Camera time unsynchronized
Having comprehensive, specific information regarding the connection and the suggested troubleshooting guidance saves users time and money during installation.
Watch our EasyConnect video to learn more about the feature that makes connecting IP cameras as easy as analog.
Automatic Check for Client Updates
The exacqVision client can now be configured to automatically check for new updates. To enable the automatic check, go to the “About” button in the client and check the new option, “Automatically check for updates.” The client will check 30 seconds after it opens for new updates.
Visual Hard Drive Storage Status
exacqVision 7.0 adds a graphical representation of hard drive status for exacqVision systems equipped with RAID storage such as the exacqVision Z-Series, A-Series and S-Series. When a drive failure occurs, exacqVision users will see a display that indicates the physical location of the drive that needs replaced, minimizing the risk of removing the wrong drive. Go to the storage page under the hardware tab to see the graphic assessment of the hard drive status.
Several improvements to Exacq mobile have been added in this release including event monitoring and two-finger swipe capabilities.
The Exacq mobile app now supports viewing event monitors that have been configured within the exacqVision client. Event monitoring ensures mobile app users are aware of the most important video relating to events like motion detection, alarms and other triggered inputs to the system.
Exacq mobile also introduces a new two-finger swipe navigation for faster review of all camera views. Users can swipe to the left to load the next set of cameras into the viewing layout.
The web client now has a server configuration page for monitoring and managing servers.
Enterprise System Manager (ESM)
ESM Bulk Save Server Configuration
Administrators can back up the settings of all exacqVision servers across the enterprise at one time. Users can also specify which servers are backed up with a filter.
ESM Open and Unacknowledged Events
View all open events as well as new, incoming unacknowledged events within one dashboard in ESM. This prevents the user from switching back and forth from two different lists. Under the list section in the dashboard is a new option “Open or Unacknowledged Events” which includes both lists into one.
ESM Filter Indication
ESM users can see a visual indication when filters are active on a page. This icon prevents a user from getting confused why all results are not showing. A new clear filter button allows users to clear a data filter without having to open the filter dialog.
New IP Camera Support
We have added support for more than 75 new IP camera models in the exacqVision 7.0 release and updated over 240 test records. exacqVision now supports nearly 3,000 IP cameras.
