Higher Performance Out of the Box: Latest Update to A and Z-Series exacqVision Servers

exacqVision Z-Series 3U Hybrid

We are pleased to announce several significant performance improvements to the A and Z-Series exacqVision hybrid and IP camera servers.

Up to 180% Higher Storage Rates
With the adoption of the latest Gen 3 Intel® Core processor family, the maximum video storage rate has increased in A and Z Series servers. Increases of up to
50%–180% are achieved in A-series servers. This enables storage of higher frame rates, larger image sizes or higher quality video, all at no price increase.

Doubled Hard Drive Storage
The A-Series and Z-Series servers were recently upgraded to include 4TB hard drives for storage, doubling the storage capacity of the entire product line. Hard drive configurations from 500 GB to 80 TB are now available.

Faster Local Client and Search Performance
The updates to the server processor and the new operating system has also contributed to faster local client display rates and faster video search times.

Install Approved Applications Directly on Server
Z-Series servers now have the ability to host Certified Software Applications (CSA) directly on the server. This can also be achieved on A-Series servers with a CPU upgrade. CSA third party applications include license plate recognition software, video analytics, point-of-sale solutions and more.

Double A-Series Memory Capacity
The introduction of 64 bit version of Windows enables double the RAM capacity with A-Series servers as well as providing a more efficient operating system.

A and Z Series Spec Update Highlights

  • Operating System
    • 64 bit Windows 7 Operating System now standard
    • Windows 2008 Optional
    • Linux Ubuntu Optional
  • Solid State Drives for Operating System

Z-Series Servers Storage DoubledUp to 80TB/Server

Z-Series 4U Server with new coverexacqVision Z-Series hybrid and IP camera video surveillance servers now utilize 4TB continuous duty enterprise-class hard drives, increasing the maximum storage from 40 to 80TB per server.

Designed for demanding enterprise video surveillance applications, Z-Series servers accept up to 192 cameras (64 analog + 128 IP). Continuous recording rates of 520mbps enable high frame-rate recording at multi-megapixel resolutions per camera. The doubling of storage-per-server significantly reduces equipment cost for large system deployments utilizing multiple servers.

RAID 5 or 6 is standard on all Z-Series servers, protecting against data loss from 1 or 2 drive failures. Front-mount drive bays are hot-swappable for easy expansion and drive replacement. The new Z-Series front cover protects unauthorized users from accessing the drives.

exacqVision VMS Camera ViewAll exacqVision Z series servers now use the newest generation of drives with faster search times for stored video. For maximum throughput and video search times, 2TB drives are used for configurations of 40TB and under, and all systems configured for 48TB or greater use the 4TB drives for maximum capacity and speed.

Z-Series servers come pre-configured with exacqVision on internal SSD, and are ready for out-of-the-box deployment. All Z-Series configurations are available for immediate shipment, and the full listing of configurations is available here.
