Johnson Controls introduced the latest version of exacqVision video management system (v8.6) which offers improved video searching and video bookmarking, as well as a host of enhancements that improve the user experience and overall system protection.
Enhanced search results
Due to this update, when exacqVision v8.6 is used as part of the Complete Security Solution from the Tyco Security Products brand portfolio, the system can leverage event information from intrusion and access control systems to improve search results and provide a comprehensive security picture. For example, users can now easily search an access control badge number to quickly obtain video of all the doors that a specific employee may have accessed.
Another enhancement involves the bookmarking and case management, which is used by organisations to tag and retain important video. The latest version allows users to create a case directly from “Live” view, which includes all cameras that are being actively monitored. This saves a significant amount of time over the former process which required the user to exit “Live” view and use the Search page to manually identify all cameras and time periods for that specific event. When the user exports the case, it will contain a chronological collection of clips from different cameras showing the suspect.
Improvements in the new system
Those improvements include a significant performance enhancement in camera frame rate rendering and UI additions to display useful status information. Additionally, users can view all partitions of the Complete Security Solution integrated alarm systems along with the status of each zone – all on one screen.
As exacqVision’s capabilities exponentially increase, so do the cybersecurity measures that are designed to protect a customer’s system, personnel information, and enterprise. This release supports the enforcement of complex passwords, locking out users after a specified number of failed login attempts, and gives administrators additional tools to manage user access.
Companies looking to enhance their ability to monitor the health of the surveillance environment can now request a free trial of the Enterprise System Manager (ESM), a centralised health monitoring and software updating system that will maximise recorder uptime and reliability.
