ExacqVision Version 6 VMS Improvements Tested

By: Ethan Ace, Published on Mar 27, 2014

Exacq's newly released Version 6.0 claims a new set of features, centering around search, an issue found in IPVM's VMS Search Shootout. We did a short test of version 5.x vs 6.0 to see what the impact is for Exacq's overall positioning.

All in all I think 6.0 is a really nice upgrade. The search improvements alone make it worth the download for pretty much every single user.

Ethan, was this test all running on one machine ? When you were doing replays, were you pulling video locally versus pulling it from a machine across the network ?

The clients were on two different laptops, both connected to a third machine on the network. In order to do the screencast I remoted into one machine (the one running 5.x) for simplicity.
