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.

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.

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.

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.

EasyConnect


 64-bit exacqVision for Windows®

Windows 64Use the exacqVision 6.8 64-bit version for improved operating system memory management for environments with high input/output (I/O) demands.

How to upgrade to 64-bit?


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 .

Bulk Edit


New IP Camera Support

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.

New User Views Functionality

exacqVision 6.6 now allows users to create views based on user permission settings.This feature allows Administrators and Power Users to control the camera views for specific users. It also allows individuals to create personal views that cannot be used by any other exacqVision user.

User Views


Updated Event Monitoring

Event monitors automate client reactions to events (for example displaying a video of the front door when the front door is accessed). When used properly, event monitors convey situational awareness in busy environments to active users. exacqVision 6.6 provides increased flexibility and power to always display the most important video using the Event Monitor feature.

  • Use Event Monitoring to always keep YOUR most important live video in front of your users
  • Now with faster and easier set up of Event Monitoring rules
  • Apply new filters to the event list to find specific events
  • Drag any camera into Event Monitoring panel to see video
  • Higher ranked events fill in as they occur
