exacqVision Groups Enhancements

The exacqVision 6.8 groups page allows you to create logical groups of cameras and other items connected to one or more systems. This is useful when you have a large number of cameras spread across multiple buildings or a campus, and you would like to place cameras in logically named groups such as first floor or second floor instead of viewing your cameras in default groups based on their connection to the systems.

With exacqVision 6.8, you can now upload and assign custom icons to groups, making it easier to find groups of interest at a glance. You can now also sort items within a group.

Groups


VideoPush for Exacq Mobile

exacqVision 6.8 now supports video push to mobile devices. 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), video wall and now to mobile devices.

This feature allows video to be sent and shared with officers on patrol or other remotely stationed personnel for on-the-go collaboration. For example, when users identify a suspicious event occurring in an area, the video can immediately be pushed directly to the mobile device of a person closest to that area.

video push mobile

VideoPush is available in the exacqVision Enterprise VMS at no extra cost, with no limitation on the number of public view monitors, video wall, or mobile device connections.


Exacq Mobile H.264 and other Mobile Improvements

Several usability improvements have been added to Exacq Mobile in this release including:

  • H.264 video compression format (also known as MPEG-4) playback support for iOS, Android, and Windows phone devices. This enhancement saves bandwidth and CPU on the server running the web service. The video is either streamed or transcoded to H.264 based on mobile device performance
  • Improved mobile device responsiveness, allowing touch-drag of cameras to display camera freeze frame while dragging
  • Pressed Exacq Mobile buttons now clearly show the pressed-button state
  • Exacq Mobile icons have been redesigned for better visibility and recognition

Exacq Mobile

  • View cameras by group, as defined in the exacqVision client. With support for groups, Exacq Mobile users can quickly view relevant cameras.
  • The Web Client now offers more configuration support of exacqVision recorders, including the System Information page and Add Cameras page, with the ability to enable/disable cameras and manually add new cameras.


Enterprise System Manager (ESM) Version 3.2

ESM Backup Configuration

Automate the backup of recorder configurations in Enterprise System Manager (ESM) 3.2. Administrators can schedule backups (exports) of multiple recorder configurations at once. These backups are stored on the ESM server and can be restored (imported) to the recorder to “reset” the recorder to a known earlier good state. This ability to configure and schedule exports on multiple servers simultaneously eases the management of large environments.

  • Export recorder configurations to ESM (backup)
  • Import recorder configuration from ESM (restore)
  • Exports are manually executed server by server
  • Imports (restores) can be scheduled and performed in bulk

ESM Event Duration Rules

Short events that occur frequently can result in hundreds or even thousands of entries in a batch email notifications. With ESM 3.2, you can filter those events from triggering multiple notifications using the new “lasts for at least” rule. This ensures that the event duration lasts long enough to warrant a notification.

Last for at least rule

ESM Bulk Server Edits

You can now edit all of the servers in the ESM server list using the new bulk edits option. Click on the new bulk edit iconbulk edit icon to update basic connection properties that should be the same on every recorder. The bulk edits feature also allows you to delete all servers in the list .

exacqVision 6.6 Releases Focuses on Failover

The latest version of the exacqVision Video Management System (VMS), Version 6.6, is now available. The focus of this release centers around server failure detection and automatic recovery. With added support for over 100 new cameras in this release, the exacqVision VMS now supports nearly 2,200 IP camera models.

ESM Failover for exacqVision

The new Enterprise System Manager (ESM) Failover feature ensures the high availability of mission critical security video and data. ESM Failover helps avoid downtime by:

  • Continually monitoring exacqVision recorders for possible failures
  • Automatically moving functionality to “spare” servers in the rare event of a failure
  • Manual ESM Failover mode for maintenance of exacqVision recorders

Monitor

Restore recording functionality within minutes!

15 secondsHow fast is ESM Failover?
ESM failover is designed to detect a server failure within 15-30 seconds. This setting is configurable, so a long delay could be set to avoid failover during a reboot, for example. A manual failover mode also exists for performing tasks like system maintenance. In the event of an actual system failure, the spare recorder can be up and running within a matter of minutes.

Failover

What Fails Over?

  • Z-SeriesCameras
  • Recording Schedules
  • Users
  • Event Linking
  • Saved layouts, Views, Groups and Maps
  • Serial Profiles
  • Archiving configuration
  • Notification Rules
  • Auto Export Rules

Failover does not change the network identity of the protected recorder or spare in order to prevent duplicate IP addresses. Analog cameras and analog inputs are not part of ESM Failover due to wiring requirements of analog devices. Also note that the spare server storage doesn’t need to match the protected server, but should simply provide enough storage for anticipated downtime.

Failback
ESM will automatically failback to the protected recorder when available.The video from a failover remains on the spare server until manually moved back to the protected server.

Failover Requirements

Failover requires spare recorders, typically in the same family as the primary recorder, each with enough capacity to store video for the anticipated duration of the downtime. Failover also requires exacqVision camera licenses for the cameras being recorded. ESM Failover requires the Enterprise Server Option on an exacqVision server along with ESM running on a separate server.

Other new items in this release:


SpeedSearch – Radically-Faster Search Experience 

SpeedSearch-logoWe’ve changed the way search works in exacqVision 6.0, making the the search feature faster and much more intuitive. With SpeedSearch:

  • Video frames automatically populate as the timeline cursor is moved around
  • Once playing, video will download and play wherever you drag the timeline cursor
  • Video will continue playing past the edge of the timeline
  • Cameras added to the timeline are automatically selected
  • Very fast, even in low-bandwidth connections

In the video below, exacqVision 6.0 with SpeedSearch (right) instantly pulls up video frames from a search.


The SpeedSearch feature allows users to start investigating video before the full video is downloaded. The more intuitive search makes time spent investigating video much more productive.


Advanced Camera Configuration

With exacqVision 6.0, Exacq has moved much of the camera configuration capabilities from the individual camera web pages to the exacqVision client user interface. This includes remotely controlling features such as Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), Auto-focus, and Flip/Rotate on supported cameras.

exacqVision 5.4

exacqVision 5.8 is available for download at https:exacq.com/download

New exacqVision 5.8 features include:


Two Way Audio, Phase I

exacqVision 5.8 introduces Phase I of two-way audio. Phase I includes the ability to send audio from a microphone connected to an exacqVision client machine to an external speaker connected to an exacqVision hybrid or IP camera server via the server’s motherboard speaker output. Audio input to the server is supplied via an IP camera with supported audio (all exacqVision servers) or an external microphone connected to the audio I/O panel (hybrid servers only). This feature is available with all exacqVision servers except Edge and Virtual.

The new exacqVision 5.8 client includes a microphone icon. Click this icon to show the configured speaker list. Press and hold the Talk button on the selected audio output, and using a microphone on the client PC, send audio out to the speaker selected. (Note: requires exacqVision Professional or Enterprise)

Two-Way Audio is also searchable using the exacqVision 5.8 search interface.

Two-Way audio is enabled through the System Audio configuration screen.


New Network Storage Features

Extended Storage – In addition to archiving, exacqVision 5.8 now supports extended storage. Extended storage is networked storage that acts like a local hard drive.

exacqVision 5.4

exacqVision 5.6 is available for download at https:exacq.com/download

New exacqVision 5.6 features include:


exacqVision Archiving Phase II – Archive to network storage

exacqVision 5.6 introduces Phase II of video archiving where the exacqVision Professional, Enterprise or Edge server application controls the archiving tasks based on user configuration options. In Phase II users can configure each video server to archive to a single networked storage location.

  • Configure WHERE archived video will be stored
    • Can archive to any Server Message Block (SMB) Windows share
    • The exacqVision S-series — a new networked storage device from Exacq that is pre-configured for out-of-the-box archiving storage.

    • Some or all of the cameras connected to the server
    • Archive can be based on motion, alarms, or other events
  • Configure WHEN video/audio is archived
    • Continuous: Backup important video every 5 minutes
    • On Schedule: Backup when video server or network load is low

Video Archiving


Custom Layouts - Create your own layouts for live and recorded video

Custom layouts allow users to customize the size, quantity and location of the video windows used on the live and search page screens. Previously users could view live or recorded video using the pre-configured layouts available on the client along the top of the screen. With this update, users can now create their own customized layouts. For example, if you are using a camera with wide aspect ratio or desire a specific order of large and small windows to view, you can configure a custom layout to meet these requirements.

Custom layout with wide screen camera

Custom layouts are easily created with a new configuration screen, accessible by Power and Admin users. When new layouts are created, they are stored on all connected servers. These layouts are re-usable, so users can include a layout in multiple views. The Views Layout Configuration screen is designed for easy configuration of your custom views. The main editing pane allows users to add, delete, and merge video cells to create a custom layout. You can also right-click on panels for more editing choices. Saved Views can be seen from the client and via the browser/thin client interface.


Email Event Video – Send preview video/web server link in email

exacqVision notifications now include the ability to attach a short preview video and a webserver link to the event email.

Event Video Email Example

In this e-mail, the exacqVision notification feature has sent an e-mail with user defined text. It also includes a short .mov preview video, and a link to the same video on the web server. If the user observes suspicious activity in the preview video, they can investigate the stored video by clicking on the web server link.


Multi-Serial Search - Search multiple serial data sources simultaneously

Multi-serial search allows users to search more than one serial stream simultaneously. Each stream selected for the search is represented by a tab in the serial display area on the right. While playing back video, users can select the tab of the serial stream they wish to view in conjunction with the video. In the example below, the cash register 1 serial stream has been selected.
