Exacq Technologies, part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco, introduces Camera Links, overlay controls for immediate response to events. The new exacqVision version 7.0 video management system (VMS) software also includes enhanced EasyConnect IP camera connection, updates to event monitoring in Exacq mobile and backup of server configuration in Enterprise System Manager (ESM), a health monitoring program for use with exacqVision Enterprise network video recorders (NVRs).
exacqVision 7.0 introduces camera links
exacqVision 7.0 introduces camera links, which allow exacqVision users to configure overlay controls that will display when hovering over a camera in live view. This feature gives users the ability to adjust the overlay text color, font, style, transparency and location on screen to fit any of their camera views. The created camera links are visible across all client sessions and in all layouts and view configurations. Camera Links puts exacqVision users most needed commands at their fingertips and vastly improves their response time to critical alarms and events.
The EasyConnect feature, introduced last year, has been enhanced in exacqVision 7.0. EasyConnect allows users to find, address and connect multiple IP cameras to their network automatically. Now, EasyConnect shows users more detailed connection status feedback when connecting Illustra IP cameras and exacqVision E-Series video encoders. Having comprehensive, specific information regarding the connection and suggested troubleshooting guidance saves users time and money during installation.
exacqVision users can now utilise event monitoring from the latest Exacq Mobile app for iOS, Android and Windows Phone 8 devices. Any event monitors configured within the exacqVision client can be viewed in the mobile app. Event monitoring ensures mobile app users are aware of the most important video relating to events like motion detection, alarms and other triggered inputs to the system. In addition to event monitoring, the latest Exacq Mobile app supports two-finger swipe navigation for faster review of all camera views. Users can swipe to the left to load the next set of cameras into the viewing layout.
The new Enterprise System Manager (ESM) bulk configuration allows administrators to back up the settings of all servers across the enterprise at one time. With this new functionality, ESM makes it faster and easier for administrators to always have a backup of exacqVision recorder configurations.
