exacqVision 8.0 Release Introduces Suspect Tracking

exacqVision 8.0, the latest release of exacqVision video management system [VMS] software, is now available from Exacq.

Software Downloads

Watch this video to see the new features in exacqVision 8.0.

exacqVision 8.0 highlights:


Suspect Tracking

Suspect Tracking allows users to follow a person or object of interest through an entire scene faster. Users can configure CameraLinks, also seen as Associations in the client configuration, to set up a series of links between multiple camera views displayed by overlay boxes in live view. Each polygon can be customized by border and transparency and placed wherever you’d like in the range of view. By left double-clicking on the polygons in the live camera view, users can navigate through the scene following a person of interest.

Users can also dynamically build an export of suspect tracking in exacqVision search greatly simplifying finding video evidence. Start with the first camera of the scene and expand to additional cameras. Once all the cameras in the scene have been added, then bookmark the video and label for export.

Exacq Suspect Tracking

Under the Configuration page, navigate to the new Suspect Tracking tab. Click ‘New’ and draw the box on the camera view. Under ‘Area Configuration’ choose the camera and set the background and border.  A slider bar for opacity of the background and border can be set.

suspect-tracking-configuration

To configure suspect tracking faster on an enterprise system, select the ‘Generate from Map’ button. exacqVision will generate default links on the cameras based on  which camera is closest on the map.

Available for exacqVision Professional and Enterprise VMS software.


New CameraLinks

CameraLinks put the most needed controls at the user’s fingertips in live view.

  • Enable and disable digital PTZ mode from live view via the new CameraLink.
  • Access exacqReplay directly from live view within CameraLinks for an instant replay of video and audio events. View video in segments of  5 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute, 5 minutes to 15 minutes.

exacqReplay CameraLink


Archive Bookmarks

Archive Bookmarks allows users to create a second copy of important video. Adding to the direct archive search introduced in exacqVision 7.8, archive bookmarks enhances video archiving to provide faster access to video and better manage bandwidth. Users closer to the archive location on the network can directly search video on the archive without routing data through the recorder.

Enable archive bookmarks on the archiving target location by selecting the “Archive All Bookmarks” checkbox on the Archiving Schedule page. This applies to all bookmarks created on the specific recorder and will not restrict by camera or day. Bookmarked video will not delete until the bookmark is removed from the recorder.


At-Most Rule on Archive

exacqVision users can enable a rule to define an expiration of maximum number of days of video to retain. The at-most rule applies to all video on the archive target and not defined per-camera.

On the Target tab, turn on the expiration configuration and select the number of days.


Inactivity Timeout

Operators can now configure exacqVision to timeout after a specific period of inactivity to conserve bandwidth. This new feature is configured per client. While the camera and client stay connected to the recorder, users can simply mouse over the client to resume viewing video.

exacqvision-8-0_inactivity-timeout

On the client configuration page, users can check the ‘enable’ box and specify the number of minutes to disconnect the live streams after.

View the Inactivity Timeout pop-up box to alert users the live streams will disconnect due to inactivity.


Stream Rate Control

exacqVision 8.0 introduces two new ways to configure camera stream bandwidth to the recorder. The existing constant quality setting is still available in addition to  the new constant bitrate and maximum bitrate settings. Set the stream to maintain quality or maintain bitrate to more consistently manage bandwidth and storage usage.

Constant Quality

  • Set the quality from 1-10 as in previous releases of exacqVision

Constant Bitrate

  • Set bitrate and the stream will adjust quality as needed

Maximum Bitrate

  • Set the quality from 1-100  and a maximum bitrate [Note the quality slider is a scale the same as the camera]
  • Stream maintains quality until it hits the maximum bitrate

Available for the following camera brands:

  • Illustra
  • Axis Communications
  • Arecont Vision
  • Hikvision


Camera Name and Serial Data Background

Users can now customize the text and background color for the camera name and serial data displayed in live mode to make the information easier to read in specific environments.

  • Font
  • Size
  • Effects color
  • Background Color
  • Background Opacity [0-100%]

exacqVision 7.8 Release Enables Direct Archive Search and Introduces Camera Connection Diagnostics

exacqVision 7.8, the latest release of exacqVision video management system (VMS) software, is now available from Exacq.

Software Downloads

Watch this video to see the exacqVision complete security solution and new features.

exacqVision 7.8 highlights:


Direct Archive Search

Direct Archive SearchexacqVision 7.8 enhances video archiving to provide faster access to video and better manage bandwidth. Users closer to the archive location on the network can directly search video on the archive without routing data through the recorder. Direct archive search is available for any exacqVision S-Series storage device and any third-party network share archive.

For customers that want to implement mobile video on vehicles such as trains, subways, and buses, exacqVision Edge+ VMS software on a camera can be used in combination with direct archive search to send video to the archive while at the station and view video from the archive while the vehicle is on duty.

Direct archive search can be enabled for exacqVision Professional and Enterprise users. To enable direct archive search, users can go to the Archiving page and select the enabled check box under the new Direct Search section and enter read-only username and password credentials that the client will use to access the network share.


Camera Connection Diagnostics

exacqVision will now provide guidance on all camera connections to resolve and troubleshoot camera connections faster. The new camera diagnostic information will reduce common technical support questions.

exacqVision_Camera_Diagnostics

Under IP Camera Information there is a new Troubleshooting Steps field that gives specific instructions to support connection scenarios for any camera manufacturer and model. Connection Diagnostics and descriptions include:

  • Different Subnet – IP of camera is on a different subnet and may not be reachable.
  • Duplicate IP – Device with the same IP address is already in the list
  • Wrong IP – Device of the same type was discovered at a different IP
  • Type Mismatch – Device of a different type discovered at the same IP
  • Bad Credentials – Camera is rejecting the username or password


Hard Disk Drive Serviceability

exacqVision will automatically run disk health checks for proactive notification when a NVR hard drive may fail.

HDD-Serviceability

On the Storage page under the Hardware tab, users can find the storage hardware disks. exacqVision will show a green check mark or red X indicating if the disk has failed or a HDD failure is impending.. Users can perform a self-test for a single disk or for all disks by clicking one of the two buttons: ‘start short test’ which typically takes seconds or ‘start long test’, which may take a few hours to complete. The status line under the properties section will display the drive failure and notify the user if a drive needs replaced. This feature is available exclusively on exacqVision network video recorders.


Bandwidth Control

exacqVision Professional and Enterprise users can configure bandwidth limitations to certain IP ranges and during specific hours to optimize traffic. Bandwidth can be customizable down to the Kbps or Mbps for greater control.

Bandwidth can be limited for:Bandwidth-Configuration

  • All Remote Client Access – affects all client traffic out of the recorder
  • WAN Client Access – affects all traffic on a different subnet
  • Defined IP Ranges – affects only the defined IP ranges

Bandwidth can be scheduled for specific days and start and end times. By default, it will be set to Everyday, All Day. For example, in retail applications, users may want to schedule WAN bandwidth restrictions around business hours so lines for credit cards can be used and during closed hours the bandwidth opens up.


MP4 Crop Export

exacqVision users can now export video files to MP4. Along with the new MP4 export feature, exacqVision provides users with the ability to crop the scene, add a subtitle and time stamp to any .EXE, .MOV or .MP4 video file.The ability to crop a scene gives users greater flexibility to meet privacy standards. In schools, administrators can crop the video event footage down to only include the necessary students involved instead of including the entire scene of students, which may violate privacy regulations.

exacqVision_mp4_export_cropping

Users can select the new scissors icon and draw a box around a specific area they would like to crop for the export, allowing them to focus on the necessary area of the event. The cropped image will add a black border with yellow text stating “cropped from original video” to the bottom of the exported file. Watermark authentication is also supported for .exe export.

Users can export files larger than 4GB. Files can still be exported as .exe, .avi and .mov in addition to the new .mp4 format.


Web Service Dashboard

The redesigned web service configuration page now displays performance and connectivity status in a new dashboard for convenient connection monitoring. The page now offers guidance and live status of server workloads and connected users. An easy to read, real-time graphic shows the current CPU and memory usage, the number of connected users and camera streams they are viewing. For further detail, the number of streams being transcoded is shown. The blue section indicates how much the web service is using and the dark gray shows how much the machine is using in total. Within a glance, users can see if the web service is encountering a high level of load. If there is a high number of users or high memory usage, it may be necessary to add hardware to improve performance.

exacqVision_WebConfigurationPage

Additionally, this page will provide guidance on connectivity:

  • Outbound Internet Connection -Confirms the web server can reach the Internet
  • Inbound Internet Connection – Confirms the Internet can reach the web server
  • Internet Address – Confirms the external IP or URL that users will enter into Exacq Mobile

Web-Service-Administration


Exacq Mobile Event List Search

Quickly find and review video associated with POS, access control and other events from your mobile app in a new list search format.

By clicking the search icon in the upper right hand corner of the app and selecting custom, a search details box will appear. Users can select the specific start/end time and up to 4 cameras to search on. Similar to the exacqVision client list search, Exacq Mobile allows users to view a thumbnail of each event and review events individually in a list. Double click or touch any of the results to view the timeline view of the specific event. Users can closely review events quickly to ensure nothing was missed in any of the scenes.

ListSearch_exacqMobile


Enterprise System Manager (ESM) License Management

Administrators can now backup and store server licenses directly from ESM. The new functionality allows administrators to easily import, export and save a large number of server licenses and view license expiration dates. On the server details page, users can select the calendar icon to save configuration, change configuration, update software or import license file. This gives ESM administrators the ability to manage all licenses for recorders monitored on the system.

  • 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

EasyConnect Status Messages

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

Check for UpdatesThe 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.

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.

exacqVision 6.6 Releases Focuses on Failover

The latest version of the exacqVision Video Management System (VMS), Version 6.6, is now available. The focus of this release centers around server failure detection and automatic recovery. With added support for over 100 new cameras in this release, the exacqVision VMS now supports nearly 2,200 IP camera models.

ESM Failover for exacqVision

The new Enterprise System Manager (ESM) Failover feature ensures the high availability of mission critical security video and data. ESM Failover helps avoid downtime by:

  • Continually monitoring exacqVision recorders for possible failures
  • Automatically moving functionality to “spare” servers in the rare event of a failure
  • Manual ESM Failover mode for maintenance of exacqVision recorders

Monitor

Restore recording functionality within minutes!

15 secondsHow fast is ESM Failover?
ESM failover is designed to detect a server failure within 15-30 seconds. This setting is configurable, so a long delay could be set to avoid failover during a reboot, for example. A manual failover mode also exists for performing tasks like system maintenance. In the event of an actual system failure, the spare recorder can be up and running within a matter of minutes.

Failover

What Fails Over?

  • Z-SeriesCameras
  • Recording Schedules
  • Users
  • Event Linking
  • Saved layouts, Views, Groups and Maps
  • Serial Profiles
  • Archiving configuration
  • Notification Rules
  • Auto Export Rules

Failover does not change the network identity of the protected recorder or spare in order to prevent duplicate IP addresses. Analog cameras and analog inputs are not part of ESM Failover due to wiring requirements of analog devices. Also note that the spare server storage doesn’t need to match the protected server, but should simply provide enough storage for anticipated downtime.

Failback
ESM will automatically failback to the protected recorder when available.The video from a failover remains on the spare server until manually moved back to the protected server.

Failover Requirements

Failover requires spare recorders, typically in the same family as the primary recorder, each with enough capacity to store video for the anticipated duration of the downtime. Failover also requires exacqVision camera licenses for the cameras being recorded. ESM Failover requires the Enterprise Server Option on an exacqVision server along with ESM running on a separate server.

EasyConnect Enhancements

The EasyConnect feature on the exacqVision VMS allows users to find, assign, address and connect certain IP cameras to their network automatically. EasyConnect enhancements in exacqVision 6.6 keeps the camera list fresh, guides administrators to the camera configuration page, and links to camera connection diagnostics to simplify the process even more.

EasyConnectThe power of IP cameras with the simplicity of analog.

Easy Connect


New User Views Functionality

exacqVision 6.6 now allows users to create views based on user permission settings.This feature allows Administrators and Power Users to control the camera views for specific users. It also allows individuals to create personal views that cannot be used by any other exacqVision user.

User Views


Updated Event Monitoring

Event monitors automate client reactions to events (for example displaying a video of the front door when the front door is accessed). When used properly, event monitors convey situational awareness in busy environments to active users. exacqVision 6.6 provides increased flexibility and power to always display the most important video using the Event Monitor feature.

  • Use Event Monitoring to always keep YOUR most important live video in front of your users
  • Now with faster and easier set up of Event Monitoring rules
  • Apply new filters to the event list to find specific events
  • Drag any camera into Event Monitoring panel to see video
  • Higher ranked events fill in as they occur

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:
