School Campus Enhances Perimeter Security with Complete Tyco Security Products Solution

 About Queen Elizabeth Grammar School

Queen Elizabeth Grammar School and Wakefield Girls High School educate students in West and South Yorkshire, England. The large campus includes about 4 buildings of varying sizes some dating back to the 16th century. A 19-person governing body and 500-person teaching and support staff work to better the education for 2,100 pupils yearly.

The Challenge

Queen Elizabeth Grammar School and Wakefield Girls’ High School, located in Yorkshire, England, wanted a completely unified security system to secure the perimeter of the campus, while minimizing investigation time and improving security operations. Additionally, they wanted cameras that produced clear images to identify people as well as a management system that was easy to use.

Wakefield Grammar School

The Solution

After a complete site survey and evaluation, the school selected Reflex Systems of South Yorkshire, England as their integrator.

Queen Elizabeth Grammar and Wakefield School increased its security across its five-school campus with a complete Tyco Security Products solution including:

exacqVision Kantech Onboard

“They had done quite a bit of research on everything. Once they came to us, we decided that going with the Kantech embedded software was the best decision from a future-proofing point of view,” explained Steven Ward, technical director, Reflex Systems.

BenefitsIP Camera

Improved Camera Performance

With camera performance and image quality being the two most important factors for the school, the new Illustra Pro cameras give them the opportunity to cover all entry and exit points on campus and see critical details in areas with no sunlight. The strong integration between exacqVision VMS software and Illustra cameras simplified the deployment and optimized the performance. exacqVision automatically discovers cameras and addresses in exacqVision with EasyConnect.

exacqVision EasyConnect

Reduced Hardware Expenses

exacqVision recorders with Kantech Onboard reduce the hardware expenses and amount of rack space needed with the access control system pre-loaded on the network video recorder. The recorder came pre-loaded and pre-licensed with Kantech EntraPass Corporate access control system software at no additional cost.  With the integration of access control and video into one system, they were able to improve response time to critical alarms and events. With exacqVision CameraLinks, school operators can quickly access the most needed commands from live view and further search video evidence associated with entry and exit points.

“The installation went absolutely seamlessly. We prewired extra IT points where cameras were going to be and when it came time to connect everything to the network, they were snapped in and up and working right away. It was a great experience.”

exacqVision 7.6 Release Improves Client Performance

exacqVision 7.6, 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 7.6 highlights:


Improved Client Video Performance

The exacqVision client will leverage hardware H.264 decoding if present to improve the Windows, Linux and Mac client performance. Hardware acceleration increases H.264 decoding performance. To enable client hardware acceleration, go to client options and click the Calibrate button. After running the calibration, you will receive a recommended level of GPU decoding, which you can adjust with the slider bar.

The amount of performance boost hardware decoding provides will vary by the GPU resources available on the machine. For a Broadwell i7 CPU, CPU usage decreased by up to 50% for 16 camera layouts and rendered frames per second increased by 30% for 48 camera layouts.


Area Zoom

In live view, users can utilize area zoom for pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras. This allows a user to draw a box around a specific region to instantly optically zoom in to see greater detail on objects or people in the distance. Simply hold control and left click to draw the box around the area to zoom in on. This new feature is available for Axis and Illustra PTZ cameras used within exacqVision.

exacqVision area_zoom


Second Reviewer

For European customers, exacqVision has added the ability to configure enhanced privacy restrictions requiring a second reviewer to view the live video or review recorded video. Add the option to require two people to enter passwords for live, search and export actions. By default this feature is disabled. To enable this feature, contact Technical Support for a special configuration key to import on the Systems page, security tab.
exacqVision_second_reviewer


Mapping

Within the maps page, configure a new map, add an icon and map image. Right click the camera on the map and select the new option Show Field of View. Drag the field of view to cover the appropriate area. The new functionality also allows the field of view color to be updated to a preset list of more than 10 color options. Simply right click and select Field of View Color to change the color so it appears better on the screen. Drag and drop maps and child maps anywhere on the list.

exacqVision Mapping_Field of View Icons


Windows 10 Support

The exacqVision client and server now support Windows 10.


Faster Discovery & Camera Reconnection

The exacqVision client can now automatically discover exacqVision servers on the network. Instead of having to manually type in the IP address range and brute force scan through each address, the client will automatically scan when the client is opened. Clicking the Find button on the find systems tab will initiate a rescan to find new servers.

When a network outage occurs, exacqVision will reconnect to the camera. The IP reconnection interval has been updated to reconnect every 15 seconds for up to 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, it will attempt to reconnect every 60 seconds for up to 1 hour. After 1 hour, it will go back to searching every 5 minutes. This reconnection is available for Illustra, Axis and Arecont Vision cameras.


Exacq Mobile Search

Exacq mobile_searchExacq Mobile has enhanced search functionality. Users can quickly select a pre-defined search range from 1 minute to 30 minutes or enter a custom time search to set your own time perimeters by clicking the search icon in the upper right hand corner. In the custom time search, users can easily select the hour and minutes from the clock icon. Select up to 4 cameras to view search results.
The new toolbar layout offers easier navigation for layouts, VideoPush, Cycling through cameras and searching. VideoPush allows you to push live video to any other client. The new Cycle Through Cameras icon takes you to the next two cameras on the list. To cycle through cameras, you can also do a two-finger swipe to the left or right to navigate to cameras.

Enterprise System Manager (ESM) Remote Updates

Administrators can now perform software updates. The improved available versions page provides ESM users with quick identification of the current versions of exacqVision clients, web services and ESM itself installed across the entire environment. The Available Versions page has been updated to the Running Versions page. It shows new headers for versions, product, platform name, count and actions. Receive notifications at the top when newer versions are available.
Enterprise-System-Manager_version
Users can update all exacqVision clients and web services connected to ESM directly from one interface. To schedule an update, click on the calendar icon at the top next to Web Services. Simply adjust servers to update in the servers to schedule drop down menu and then select the servers you would like updated. In the additional data, you can add notes. For ESM to update itself, there is a new light bulb icon in the footer. Clicking the light bulb will allow you to schedule a system update for ESM. Users will see a message informing them the system will be going down for an update.

Simply mount the camera, connect and start monitoring live and recorded video. Illustra Edge comes pre-configured with an included server license for simple, automatic installation.

Easy as 1-2-3

Illustra Edge presents everything you need for full-featured video recording. Benefits:

  • Cost-Effective Solution – With an edge video solution, fewer components are installed. Video servers and rack equipment are not required. Since Illustra Edge comes with everything bundled into the camera, it saves end users a significant amount of money. Illustra Edge provides a high quality IP cameras integrated video management system (VMS) software and SD storage included in one out-of-the-box ready solution. It even saves money in the long-term with fewer components and no server maintenance.
  • Completely Bundled, Easy to Install – Simply plug in the Illustra Edge IP camera, connect to a powered network switch and watch video. Illustra Edge requires minimal configuration and hardware installation. To make it as easy as possible, it features automatic licensing and motion-based recording on first power on.
  • High Reliability – Illustra Edge stores video on the camera’s premium video surveillance grade SD card for onboard storage of critical video. Illustra Edge cameras record even when the network is down. There is no single point of failure; if one camera fails, the other IP cameras will continue to stream and record video. Illustra Edge offers distributed recording with a long-life SD card. Store 5-15 days of typical internal video expandable to months or years.
  • Network Friendly – The security camera to server traffic is internal, resulting in low network traffic. Therefore, the Illustra Edge solution does not use valuable network resources and bandwidth as functions are performed at the edge.
  • Scalable – If more storage is needed, users can add exacqVision S-Series networked storage devices or network attached storage (NAS). Illustra Edge can be a stand-alone solution or scalable as part of a full exacqVision recorder solution.

Ideal solution for:

  • Small system installations
    • Perfect for 1-10 IP camera installations
  • Remote sites where servers are not practical
    • Power sub-stations
    • Generator stations
    • Wind farms
