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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
- Set the quality from 1-10 as in previous releases of exacqVision
- Set bitrate and the stream will adjust quality as needed
- 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:
- Axis Communications
