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

We’ve added support for over 130 new IP cameras models in the exacqVision 6.4 release and updated over 300 new test records, bringing the total number of supported IP cameras to nearly 2100!

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.

exacqVision 4.1 Released

exacqVision 4.1Version 4.1 of exacqVision Video Management Software has just been released. This latest release, compatible with all exacqVision Hybrid and IP video surveillance systems, incorporates new features and enhancements, and continues our quest for rapid, incremental updates.

Version 4.1 is available for download here. Key features in the 4.1 Release:

  • Serial Data over IP
  • Viasys Video Analytics Support
  • Serial Data export to ePlayer
  • Expanded PTZ functionality
  • Expanded Maps functionality
  • Support for new IP camera models from Arecont, Ganz, IQeye, and StarDot

Here are some of the features in detail:

Serial Data over IP
Serial data can now be read over IP ports in addition to standard serial ports. A new window has been added to the Serial Port Setup page to configure the IP serial ports:

exacqVision 4.1 Seriel Port Setup screen

A close-up view of the IP Serial Setup window is here:

Up to 64 IP serial ports can be added per server, in addition to the standard RS-232 and RS-485 serial ports. IP serial port profiles are set up the same way as standard serial port profiles. Enabling serial over IP expands the ability of exacqVision servers to integrate with POS and ATM systems, access control systems, alarm systems, and video analytic systems, such as Viasys.

ViasysViasys Video Analytics Support
Viasys is a vendor of video analytics software that resides on the edge and runs on Axis IP cameras, on IQeye Pro-line IP cameras. As analytic events occur, ASCII data is sent over the IP port. Through the use of serial over IP, an exacqVision server can read the serial data from this network port, and trigger recording and other actions based on the associated analytic events.

Viasys routines include intruder detection, perimeter protection, and alarming, and include ability for Adaptive Outdoor Analytics, 3D Video-Awareness, Electronic Fence/Trip Wire, Directional Detection and Sabotage Detection.

In addition to edge analytics, Viasys software also runs on any exacqVision server, enabling full video analytics capability for all IP cameras supported in exacqVision, including Arecont Vision, ACTi, Panasonic, Vivotek, StarDot, and more.

You can download a fully-functioning 30-day trial of Viasys software here. Demo videos of Viasys in action are here.

Serial Data Export to ePlayer
Serial data, whether from serial ports or IP ports, can now be fully exported along with associated video cameras. This export enables the serial data to scroll in real-time with what is happening on the cameras. As the video scrub bar is used to rapidly forward or reverse through video, the serial data scrolls rapidly as well; likewise as you rapidly scroll through serial data, the video stays in sync.

Here’s a sample screenshot of exported video and serial data in the ePlayer:
