The latest version of the exacqVision video management system (v8.8) provides tools that improve situation awareness and control. To better react to events, users can now embed a web page as a panel within the exacqVision client to gather important information from a variety of sources. This could be used to display breaking news headlines, or even for connectivity to web-enabled security or other mission critical systems.
Additionally, event links can be displayed as an association which will appear on top of the live video feed. Ideal for associating access control or intrusion breaches, this feature is also useful in applications such as retail, where metal/foil detectors are now being deployed to detect foil-lined bags. Once the serial data profile is set up from the metal detector, whenever a foil-lined bag is detected, an alert will trigger and automatically appear on top of the corresponding live video, providing critical information to the retailer.
This latest release also adds very important controls for administrators looking to more strictly manage how and when users can access the VMS. Closing inactive accounts, automatically unlocking accounts, and assigning temporary guest accounts are some of the new features that give system administrators visibility and control over system access.
exacqVision v8.8 has also introduced a ‘hover’ feature to accelerate the process of identifying where cameras are located. This is achieved by displaying a preview image of a camera’s live feed when a user hovers over the camera’s name in the user interface.
Finally, exacqVision 8.8 makes the camera configuration process faster and more efficient. For projects requiring numerous cameras across multiple servers, adding each camera one at a time can be a tedious and time-consuming task. With this latest release, multiple IP cameras can be imported to several servers at one time via a CSV file, which includes the cameras’ IP addresses, usernames, passwords, etc..
