INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Exacq Technologies is pleased to announce the immediate availability of exacqVision® edge™ to the exacqVision family of video management system (VMS) software used in video surveillance. The full featured exacqVision edge server software runs directly on an edge device, like an IP camera, without the need for an NVR or separate server.
exacqVision edge provides centralized user management and server monitoring. The software integrates with Active Directory and LDAP applications, as well as with other third party integrations including access control, POS/ATM, license plate recognition and video analytics. Live and recorded video from the camera is viewed and administrated using the freely distributed cross-platform (Windows/Linux/Mac) exacqVision client. The client also provides virtual matrix switching, multi-layer mapping, digital PTZ control and more. Recorded video can be stored on an on-board SD card or on a mapped network drive such as NAS storage, creating distributed points of failure for those installations that require extreme redundancy.
“exacqVision edge is unique to the physical security industry,” notes Dave Underwood, President, Exacq Technologies. “We are able to provide the same type of VMS functionality in a single IP camera or encoder as we do with our servers—and it’s a completely scalable solution.”
edge servers and their cameras are fully scalable with every exacqVision server making it perfect as a stand-alone distributed solution or part of a complete enterprise installation. exacqVision edge is an ideal way to add cameras to existing enterprise deployments in areas where adding another server may not be practical—this includes outdoor locations, restricted access locations, branch offices, remote monitoring or out-buildings where only one or two cameras are needed.
Many of these edge devices utilize processors based on the industry-standard MIPS® architecture from MIPS Technologies, Inc..
“MIPS Technologies is pleased to welcome Exacq to the ecosystem of leading companies providing software that runs on MIPS-Based™ devices. The MIPS architecture provides a scalable, high-performance solution which is ideally suited for sophisticated applications such as the new exacqVision edge VMS software,” said Gideon Intrater, vice president of marketing, MIPS Technologies.
At launch, exacqVision edge software will be supported by a number of Axis Communications IP surveillance cameras running on the AXIS Camera Application Platform (ACAP).
“We developed our embedded AXIS Camera Application Platform so partners could leverage the extra processing power available in our cameras and encoders to create intelligent edge features and functions,” said Rob Muehlbauer, business development programs manager, Axis Communications, Inc. “The exacqVision edge software running under ACAP opens up new opportunities for IP surveillance where enterprise VMS functionality is needed but the environment makes a stand-alone recording server prohibitive. By harnessing the power of edge devices with intelligent applications, we create more IP options for integrators and end-users and continue to drive the shift from analog to digital surveillance.”
Based in Indianapolis, Exacq Technologies (www.exacq.com) was created by a group of digital video pioneers integral in the creation of industry-leading video capture boards and the first market-leading surveillance digital video recorder. The cross-platform, open architecture exacqVision video management system software, hybrid NVR servers and IP Camera servers are available throughout the world via Certified Resellers and Distributors.
