New Thumbnail Search
Thumbnail Search has been added to the Search page in Version 4.9. Thumbnail Search enables immediate visual assessment and the ability to quickly find the video needed. Fast, easy zooming in and out of search time frames, and forward and back in time. Instantly play back video from any thumbnail.

The thumbnail images are small in size, making thumbnail search ideal for low-bandwidth remote connections.

Optimized Video Caching in Timeline Search
New timeline search enhancements optimize caching of video downloads. Whether moving forward or back in time and selecting a different point with which to begin playback, video already downloaded stays in the cache. The new timeline optimized video caching is ideal for low-bandwidth remote connections.

New Video Wall Features
New Version 4.9 Video Wall functionality enables switching of Views on the video wall. User-created views can be displayed via event monitoring-based triggers such as motion, alarms and serial data.

Video Wall is a standard, included feature with exacqVision Pro and Enterprise at no additional cost.

Faster Client Display
Version 4.9 client enhancements further leverage the GPU with optimized use of Direct3D and OpenGL. exacqVision Client video display rates are up to 75% faster. Live video is more fluid. The speed improvements will be seen on all exacqVision clients: Windows, Linux and Macintosh.

New Triggers on Maps
Soft triggers (user-defined events) created in exacqVision can now be integrated into Maps.

Access control operation (e.g. opening doors), video analytic alarms and other events can be placed on Maps, and can be viewed and controlled directly from the map, much the same way a PSIM solution would operate.

New S.M.A.R.T. Monitoring on exacqVision Servers
Version 4.9 adds S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) monitoring to all exacqVision servers. S.M.A.R.T. monitoring, in conjunction with the Enterprise-class drives used exclusively in exacqVision servers, helps anticipate drive failures by monitoring many aspects of the drive’s health.
