Nearly 200 New IP Cameras Added and/or Tested
The latest version of the exacqVision VMS includes new IP camera compatibility with nearly 200 different camera models from major manufacturers.
DIRECT DRIVER SUPPORT: In addition to adding entirely new direct drivers for Samsung in the latest version of exacqVision we have also added new camera models for a number of our partners:
ONVIF PROFILE S SUPPORT: ONVIF Profile S is now supported by exacqVision, paving the way for faster, more complete ONVIF integration. Camera testing based on ONVIF Profile S and existing direct drivers has been conducted or started for the following manufacturers:
Enhanced Client Control for Fisheye/Panoramic IP Cameras
Support for specialized 360 degree fisheye/panoramic cameras and lenses from partners like Vivotek and ImmerVision have been enhanced to include more direct control of the various viewing styles directly from the exacqVision client. Users can now choose different modes to view panoramic, panamorphic, and fisheye cameras. The new Fisheye menu includes the following options:
- Disable – turns off the seleced Fisheye mode
- Dewarp – flattens the image so that you can move around within the image
- Panorama – spreads the entire image out into a single view
- Dual View – flattens the image into two sections viewable from the same video panel
Support for New Axis M3007 Panoramic Camera
exacqVision 5.4 adds support for the new Axis M3007 camera. The M3007 is a panoramic camera that also provides multiple video streams. Both of these features are supported with version 5.4 and can be viewed and controlled from the exacqVision client software resulting in several unique panoramic views being available from a single camera.
New Camera Configuration Page
exacqVision 5.4 offers a completely redesigned camera page on the Camera Recording and Enterprise Cameras pages. With this new design, subsets of cameras can be selected using filters on the left side of the screen. Selected cameras can then be configured all at once rather than individually. This should greatly speed up the camera setup process for large installations.
Latest exacqVision Web Service / Thin Client for Browsers
Coinciding with the release of exacqVision 5.4 is the release of Version 2.8 of the exacqVision Web Service. The web service allows you to access your servers using an internet web browser on a computer or smart phone. The latest version has been updated to more closely match the client software. Search time boxes and control buttons have been added and video metadata is displayed. To see a live demo of the exacqVision thin client, click here and choose the “Advanced” option.
