Latest Version of exacqVision Enhances Situation Awareness and Adds User Controls for Administrators

WESTFORD, Mass. (Sept. 25, 2017) – Johnson Controls introduced the latest version of exacqVision video management system (v8.8) which provides powerful tools that improve situation awareness and control for both administrators and users.

exacqvision VMS 8.8

To better react to imminent events that could potentially affect business, users can now embed a web page as a panel within the exacqVision client to get important information such as weather updates or breaking news headlines.

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 very useful in applications such as retail, where metal/foil detectors are now being deployed to detect foil-lined bags, a new tool for shoplifters. 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 trying to prevent rising theft.

This latest release also adds very important controls for administrators looking to more strictly manage how and when users can access the VMS. Expiring inactive accounts, automatically unlocking accounts, and assigning temporary guest accounts are just a few of the new features that give system administrators visibility and control over system access. 

Finally, exacqVision 8.8 makes the camera configuration process significantly faster and more efficient. For projects requiring dozens or hundreds of 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. 

exacqVision v8.8 also accelerates the process of identifying where cameras are located (e.g. lobby, parking lot) by displaying a preview image of a camera’s live feed when a user hovers over that camera’s name.
