New Automatic IP Camera Addressing Feature Highlights exacqVision 6.4 Release

Exacq Technologies, part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco, introduces the new EasyConnect automatic IP camera connector feature with the version 6.4 of exacqVision, a video management system (VMS) software used for video surveillance. EasyConnect provides the power of IP cameras with the simplicity of analog. Version 6.4 also includes the new VideoPush video wall feature, updates to the Exacq Mobile app and web browser client, and improvements to Enterprise System Manager (ESM), a health monitoring program for use with exacqVision Enterprise networked video recorders (NVRs).

The new EasyConnect feature allows users to find, address and connect multiple IP cameras to their network automatically. The exacqVision client scans the network to find new IP cameras and the selected cameras are assigned IP addresses and connected to a server. This feature saves time and greatly simplifies the process of adding IP cameras to a modern day, network-based video surveillance solution. EasyConnect supports IP cameras from multiple manufacturers with plans to expand compatibility to most or all of the leading IP camera brands. The initial launch includes support for cameras from Illustra, Axis Communications and Arecont Vision totaling more than 400 cameras.

“As more users are adopting IP video, the addition of EasyConnect is one of the most significant features that have been added to exacqVision,” noted Scott Dennison, director of marketing, Exacq Technologies. “EasyConnect simplifies IP video to the point where it’s almost as easy as installing analog cameras.”

VideoPush gives exacqVision Enterprise users the ability to instantly push selected cameras, layouts, tours, groups or entire views to another exacqVision client monitor including other users or even a public view monitor (PVM). Beyond typical video wall functionality, VideoPush allows any client to be configured to receive video and users to be assigned permissions to push video. Ideal for retail applications, VideoPush adds the opportunity for collaborative viewing of video between multiple locations and users.

The latest Exacq Mobile app (Version 3.8) for iOS, Android and Windows Phone 8 devices allows users to set camera tours to regularly peruse important cameras.  In addition, the Exacq Mobile app has made camera selection easier. Support for SpeedSearch is now available in the exacqVision web service which provides significantly faster search results when using the web browser client. This is an ideal solution for low-bandwidth applications.

In addition to the new EasyConnect feature, version 6.4 of exacqVision adds support for over 130 new IP cameras including several “fisheye” or panoramic models.  The exacqVision VMS now supports over 2,000 IP camera models from the industry’s leading manufacturers.

The exacqVision VMS is accessed with the freely distributed exacqVision client software (Windows/Linux/Mac), the exacqVision free web browser client available for all leading web browsers (Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari and Opera), as well as the free Exacq Mobile app for iOS, Android and Windows Phone 8 devices. The VMS software is included with pre-configured exacqVision NVR servers or it can be installed on third-party Windows or Linux based systems.
