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.


The new camera configuration page (shown below) takes advantage of tabs to reduce clutter.

  • Display Tab – User can now apply display settings to one or all cameras per server
  • Video Tab – Now includes the advanced camera configuration choices shown in the table above.
  • Recording Tab – Removed the need to navigate to the “Camera Recording” page
  • Mechanical PTZ Tab – Configure a preset mechanical PTZ tour here
  • Digital PTZ/Fisheye Tab – Configure digital PTZ from this tab
  • Schedule Tab – the record schedule in now accessible from here and time-lapse camera configuration is now available
