Exacq at ISC West 2012

Exacq at ISC West 2012ISC West 2012 just wrapped up in Las Vegas. It was a busy and successful show for us. Our new, larger booth enjoyed extremely heavy traffic throughout the three-day show; our products were on display in a number of third-party integration partner booths, and we previewed new products, including:

exacqVision Edge Our new exacqVision Edge product, a complete Enterprise VMS server running on an IP camera, was featured. Initially supporting Axis IP cameras with ARTPEC 3 & 4 processors, exacqVision Edge loads directly onto the IP camera. Edge provides complete exacqVision Enterprise functionality without the need for an external server. Edge cameras appear in the camera tree just like cameras from any other server, and can be mixed and matched with existing exacqVision servers. Ideal for add-on cameras to existing systems where additional servers are too costly or not practical, for wireless outdoor cameras where consistent network connectivity is an issue, for short-term or covert deployment where there is no network connectivity, and for installations requiring distributed storage for high reliability. Ease of deployment for integrators: install and configure exacqVision Edge at the shop, then simply ship the cameras to the site for mounting and POE connection to network.

ISC West 2012

exacqVision 4.9 – Our latest release, Version 4.9, includes extensive new Search and Playback features, including Thumbnail Search. Finding the desired video is faster and easier than ever, and thumbnail search is ideal for low-bandwidth remote connections. Other new features include significant client video display speed improvements, new enhancements to exacqVision Video Wall including switched Views on alarm, enhanced Maps with integrated Soft Triggers, server management enhancements with new S.M.A.R.T. monitoring capability, new Hikvision native IP camera support, new fisheye IP camera support from Vivotek and ACTi, new encoder support from Axis, and more.

exacqVision Surveillance Keybaordexacq Mobile 2.4 – The latest exacq Mobile release features significantly faster initialization and start times, true full-screen mode, easier add-camera functionality, and new support for the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet, in addition to Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, and Android phones and tablets.

exacqVision Surveillance Keyboard – The new Surveillance Keyboard was shown, an ideal add-on to exacqVision systems. PTZ Joystick, 10 button numeric entry, 16 user defined buttons, left/right arrow wheel, and firmware custom-designed for exacqVision VMS.

Elsewhere on the show floor, exacqVision integration with IP cameras was featured in the Samsung booth, in the Bosch booth, in the IQinVision booth (running Edge), in the CNB booth, and in the StarDot booth. On the Access Control side, exacqVision integration with PremiSys Access Control system was featured in the IDenticard booth, and integration with S2 NetBox and S2 Pronto Access Control systems was featured in the S2 Security booth. Distribution partners Anixter and ADI were also highlighting exacqVision.

We certainly appreciate all of our integrators, distributors and end users who came by the booth. We’ll be back next year for ISC West 2013. Some pictures from the show are below. You can also view more pictures here.

Report from ISC East 2009

ISC East 2009ISC East wrapped up yesterday. By all accounts, it was a great show. Good selection of vendors, great educational sessions, and a lot of attendees. The attendance levels were commented on extensively in the trade media.

We were there showing the upcoming Version 3.7 of exacqVision software in the Winsted booth, and there were crowds in the booth both days, all day long. exacqVision was also being featured in other parts of the show, including the StarDot booth.

SIW RadioGeoff Kohl of SecurityInfoWatch.com came by and talked with us, and he featured Exacq in his extensive Podcast coverage of the ISC East show. We appreciate the complimentary things he had to say about us.

The Future of Video Surveillance

SecurityDreamerThe SecurityDreamer blog hosted a by-invitation-only seminar yesterday at ISC West entitled The Future of Video Surveillance.  Steve Hunt, of Hunt Business Intelligence, and proprietor of the SecurityDreamer blog, chose 32 vendors exhibiting at ISC to highlight as having unique technology, products and market approach.  Steve talks about the seminar here and here.

Exacq Technologies was one of the 32 companies highlighted yesterday.  An annotated walking tour show floor map was given to the 60 attendees with questions to ask or products to view at each of the featured companies.  From the intro on the handout:

SecurityDreamer appreciates those who make waves in the industry.  We recognize companies that are constantly challenging themselves and creating a competitive landscape.  This year we thought we’d put our opinions to good use.  Among the vendors in the video surveillance arena, we’ve chosen some that deserve extra attention.

What were our criteria?  First of all, no money changed hands.  We selected companies we’ve heard of and in most cases have first-hand experience with.  In some cases we know the customers.  In others we’ve spent time with the executive team.  The products we chose all use computers, software and networking in creative and forward-thinking ways.  Every company has a product or customer success story that stands out.  Above all every company has a product or a service that the Hunt BI team feels creates a better future for the surveillance industry.

We are flattered and certainly appreciative that Exacq was chosen as one of the highlighted companies in this seminar. We were in great company; other vendors chosen included IQinVision, ioimage, Axis, Cisco, Intransa, among others.  We enjoyed meeting many of the seminar attendees who made their way to our booth yesterday, and we look forward to meeting even more today.

Our sincere thanks to Steve Hunt and the SecurityDreamer blog team for this recognition.

Report from ISC East – Security Operations Center

Exacq in the Security Operations Center at ISC EastWe’re in the Security Operations Center (SOC) Pavilion at the combined ISC East / InfoSecurity shows in New York this week.  The SOC Pavilion showcases the convergence of IT security and Physical Security, and is being organized by IPVS Magazine.

We’re showcasing the exacqVision IP video surveillance software, connected to many IP cameras in the Pavilion from Axis and other vendors.  We’re using just a laptop as our server at this station.  Since we take advantage of intelligence at the edge devices, such as motion detection at the camera end, our processor requirements at the server end are low, enabling more reliable and lower cost servers.

ISC East continues through Wednesday.  If you’re attending the show, please stop by.  Info on ISC East is here.

Report from ISC West 2007

The first two days of the ISC West 2007 show are over. We have never had as busy of a booth as we have had here. It has been gratifying to see what an enthusiastic sales channel we have. Our Manufacturers Reps have been actively bringing their Resellers by, our Resellers have been actively bringing their customers by. New business and deals have been closed at this show. There is excitement and buzz about the exacqVision product line. It has been particularly exciting to see the interactivity between our customers and our engineers, as new features and unique applications for the products have been suggested and discussed. So much of what is in the exacqVision product has been customer driven, and we’ve already slated some of these suggestions to be in the next release, Version 2.5, which will probably hit in May.

We have also been busy meeting with current and new IP camera vendors, video analytic vendors, wireless video networking vendors. We will certainly be supporting more of these new products in the near future.

On Wednesday night we hosted an exacqVision Reseller Partner Appreciation Gathering at the Gordon Biersch Brewery. It was a great informal gathering of our Reps, Resellers and prospective Resellers. Many we knew well, some we met for the first time. We certainly appreciate everyone that came and spent the evening with us.

Below are some pictures from the show floor. Additional pictures are on our flickr photo page.
