Exacq Technologies, a video management system (VMS) software and systems manufacturer, has become the latest company to join the Physical Security Interoperability Alliance (PSIA), a global consortium of physical security manufacturers and integrators.
“We’ve been committed to open-architecture and cross-platform solutions since we first introduced exacqVision in early 2006,” notes Roger Shuman, Marketing Manager with Exacq Technologies. “Organizations like PSIA promote much needed standards in IP-based video surveillance for better integration between the key components in physical security. Furthermore, the cooperation fostered by PSIA creates best-in-class solutions for the entire security industry.”
The exacqVision VMS software runs on either a Windows or Linux operating system on a factory installed hybrid (analog and network cameras) network video recorder (NVR), a factory installed IP camera NVR server or on a commercial off-the-shelf server. The software integrates with analog cameras, IP cameras, access control systems and industry standard iSCSI storage systems from a wide range of manufacturers, according to the company.
PSIA focuses on promoting the interoperability of IP-enabled security devices across every segment of the industry. PSIA supports license-free standards and specifications, which are vetted in an open and collaborative manner to the industry as a whole. To date, more than 1,300 industry professionals have downloaded PSIA’s specifications.
