Exacq at ASIS 2012

Exacq at ASIS International 2012ASIS International 2012 just wrapped up in Philadelphia. It was a very good tradeshow for us. Although show attendance was perceived to be down by some accounts, the Exacq booth was very busy the entire show.

exacqVision 5In our booth at ASIS 2012 was the first showing of exacqVision 5, the latest version of our exacqVision Video Management Software, which will be released September 17. One of the key features in Version 5 is Multistreaming support. Multistreaming allows the ability to set multiple, independent video streams from the IP camera. Each stream can be set at different frame rates, resolution and quality level, ideal if you require remote viewing over a limited-bandwidth connection, but want to retain the highest resolution for recording and local viewing. Up to four streams per camera can be selected, depending on the IP camera model.  In addition, up to eight ‘Region of Interest’ streams can be setup on select Arecont Vision cameras, allowing for true cropping of individual, independent streams, and a full realization of the benefits of multi-megapixel cameras.

With exacqVision Multistreaming, all streams can be recorded, viewed live, saved to views, exported, and available in search and playback. No additional licensing is required; the standard exacqVision camera license enables up to four video streams, and up to eight Region of Interest streams are available on Arecont Vision cameras. Supported IP cameras for multistreaming in Version 5 include Axis, Arecont Vision, Panasonic and ACTi, with more coming. Over 240 IP camera models will be supported in multistreaming in this release, with more coming. Multistreaming is supported in exacqVision Pro, Enterprise, and Edge.

Other features in Version 5 shown included a vastly faster exacqVision client, with full processor multithreading support, providing a smoothness and fluidity of video display that is up to 6x faster than previous clients. Search speed is also improved, providing a 2x speed improvement in downloading searched video. A new Auto Export feature allows for automated backups to user-selected storage.

exacqVision Edge, the full VMS running on an IP camera, was in full force at this years show. In addition to supporting Axis IP cameras, two new IP camera Edge platforms were added in Version 5: IQeye and ISD.

exacqVision 5 will be released Monday, September 17, 2012. A new version-level upgrade promotion is available as well.

exacqVision was featured in many booths around the show floor, including Samsung, Panasonic, Anixter, Bosch, Axis, Winncom, CNB, NVT, IQeye, IDenticard, and Tyco Integrated Security, among others.

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.

ASIS 2009 Wrapup

Exacq at ASIS 2009We just returned from an extremely productive ASIS 2009 in Anaheim. New exacqVision features were introduced, the booth was packed throughout the show, and we participated in a number of multi-vendor demonstrations and seminars.

New Features Introduced – We showed a number of just-released and about-to-be-released exacqVision features including:

  • Smart Search enhancements – further search granularity that returns just the video segments when a particular portion of the image changed. Works across all cameras (IP and analog), and allows for playback, scrub, export, and save of just the smart-searched video.
  • Multi-System User Configuration – part of the new Enterprise Server option in Version 3.6, this feature allows for quick and easy administration of user accounts across all servers in an enterprise deployment.
  • ASIS 2009Mapping – highly intuitive and simple to use. Maps are integrated right into camera views; any number of maps can be used; maps can come from any source. Cameras, audio, POS streams, etc. can be dragged onto a map, alarm events produce animated icons on the maps, video sources can be pushed from maps to viewing panes. Nested maps allow additional detail (entire campus, building, floor, wing, etc) and alarm events on a nested map can “bubble up” to the top level map for instant assessment.
  • exacqVision Web Server enhancements – upcoming release enables viewing cameras from multiple servers simultaneously, search and playback across multiple cameras, ability to save and e-mail/text a URL of a specific camera view grouping. exacqVision Web Server comes standard with exacqVision software.

ASIS 2009 - Wireless IP DemoMulti-Booth Wireless IP Demo

The multi-booth wireless IP demo worked flawlessly. Firetide set up wireless mesh nodes in their booth and in the Exacq, IQeye, Pivot3, and Anixter booths.

IQeye megapixel IP cameras were connected in all five booths, video was being recorded on a Pivot3 iSCSI SAN storage with an embedded virtualized server running exacqVision server, and exacqVision clients were in multiple booths enabling viewing, searching and playback of the video. This was a great real-world open-standards technology display.

More pictures from Firetide here.

Open-Systems IP Interoperability demo at ASIS 2009

IQinVision, Pivot3, Exacq, Firetide demo at ASIS 2009At ASIS 2009 next week (Sept 21-23) we’re participating in a four-booth live demonstration of IP technology interoperability.

Exacq (booth #347), Firetide (booth #447), IQinVision (booth #353) and Pivot3 (booth #453) will be showing a real-world example of how easily standards-based solutions from open-system vendors can be integrated and supported from the field.

The live demonstration will feature wireless distribution, storage, and playback of HD/megapixel video over a wireless network across these four separate booths on the ASIS show floor.

Video from IQeye megapixel cameras in each booth will be streamed over a Firetide wireless mesh network connecting the four booths. The video will be subsequently captured and displayed remotely using the exacqVision Video Management System (VMS) running on Pivot3 iSCSI SAN storage with embedded virtual servers. Centrally captured video will then be viewable and searchable from remote computers in each of the partner booths and on smartphones.

A detailed description of the demo is in this flyer. The press release for the demo is here.
