Hardware Monitoring

Protect your investment. Always know the status of your exacqVision factory servers with the new Hardware Monitoring feature available with exacqVision 5.2. Track the voltage, temperature and fan speed of your motherboard. In the event that any of the measurement values is outside the minimum or maximum range, an ALARM indicator is displayed and can be sent as a notification via email or text message using the exacqVision Event Linking feature.

Expanded Multistreaming Capabilities

Version 5.2 adds multi-streaming support for Pelco Sarix, Hikvision and Interlogix cameras.

The multistreaming feature (introduced with exacqVision 5) 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.

Other supported IP cameras for multistreaming include those from Axis, Arecont Vision, Panasonic and ACTi. Multistreaming is supported in exacqVision Pro, Enterprise, and Edge.

exacqVision Edge Support for ISD Cameras

We have partnered with Innovative Security Designs (ISD) to bring the exacqVision Edge VMS server directly onto ISD cameras. ISD’s unique IP/analog cameras support the SDXC format with up to 128 GB of on-camera storage to create a powerful single camera solution or a vital component of a distributed solution.

Integration of video analytics through exacqVision Event Linking

Most UDP cameras include on-board video analytics. These events can now be linked directly to exacqVision via the Event Linking feature. Use powerful video analytics to trigger alarms, record video or audio, automatically export clips or send notifications via email or text message.

Video Export Improvements

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.
