MILWAUKEE—Johnson Controls introduces exacqVISION VMS 19.12 that provides enhanced security and communication with new ONVIF 2-way audio support and offers more camera license deployment flexibility for Enterprise Manager customers. 

Exacq’s ONVIF camera integration supports the ability to talk and listen through IP cameras equipped with audio I/O. This new feature is perfect for businesses who utilize entryway cameras to authorize visitors as operators can hear what a visitor is saying and communicate back using the camera’s outbound audio.

Camera licenses can now be bulk purchased and unused licenses stored within Enterprise Manager to deploy as needed. Additionally, camera license SSAs will not age on Enterprise Manager. 

“The enhanced features of exacq’s Enterprise Management solution provides more control for administrators, making it easier to manage licenses and maximize uptime,” Jordan Linback, exacqVISION product manager, said in the announcement. 

Exacq Mobile features a more mobile-friendly camera-user experience and improved performance when viewing multiple camera streams. By tapping a camera panel, mobile users can display a full-screen view of the stream as well as access to camera-specific options. Tapping a single-camera panel no longer disconnects a user from other live streams, providing a way to quickly jump to other streams when navigating back to the multi-camera live view. 

Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) stream management is now built into the exacqVISION server, allowing users to configure an RSTP stream for a camera directly from the exacqVISION client.
