ExacqVision Walkthrough for Mac

Before starting, you will need to have already installed ExacqVision on your Mac. The latest version is available to download from our support page.



Initial Setup

Step 1: Start the ExacqVision application either from Launchpad or by going into Finder, under the Applications folder and click the ExacqVision icon "edvrclient"


Step 2: You will now see the Live View without any cameras


Step 3: Click the Config/Setup icon at the top


Step 4: Click Systems -> Add Systems then click the New button


Step 5: Enter the hostname, username and password, then click Apply at the bottom


Step 6: Click the Live view icon at the top left


Step 7: Drag and drop each camera into the view window. You can also simply double-click the first camera on the list and they will all fill in the empty slots.


You can select different screen-split modes using the icons at the top, and you can save your view with the "Save View" button



4-way splitscreen view selected. Cameras in bold on the left are the ones being displayed.


7-way splitscreen view selected. Drag and drop cameras from the list or the split view to reorder.




Accessing Recorded Video

Step 1: Click the Search icon at the top

Step 2: Select the camera(s) you want to search, then select the date/time to search using the calendar at the bottom


Use the date/time fields and arrows to select the time period you want to search. In the example below we are selecting a 2 hour period of video from 7:25am to 9:25am on Oct 18th, 2015. Click Search to show the results.

The timeline will display blue lines whenever motion was recorded. You can double click anywhere on the timeline to start video playback. The time of the recordings are shown along the top of the graph in increments (10:10, 10:15, 10:20 in this example). The camera names are listed on the left.




Use the playback controls above the Timeline to Play/Pause, Fast Forward and Rewind. Each click of Fast Forward or Rewind will playback more quickly, similar to a DVD player. (ie 2x, 4, 8x, 16x etc) You can also click and drag the yellow slider bar left or right to quickly "scrub" through video.




You can zoom into the timeline to show better detail using the small green zoom in/zoom out buttons on the far left and right. You can see the timeline scale has changed to 1 minute increments (10:19, 10:20, 10:21, etc)


 


Downloading (Exporting) Recorded Video

Step 1: Using the calendar search and timeline, find the rough section of video you want to export, then use the "Mark Start" button to select a portion of the video.


Step 2: Adjust the selected video etither by dragging the Start/Stop export bars to the desired times or by clicking on the timeline and then clicking the "Mark Start" and "Mark Stop" buttons.


Step 3: Once you have the desired section of video, click the Export Video button.


Step 4: Select the folder on your computer where you want to save the video file. The filename defaults to the name of the Camera and the date stamp, but you can change it to whatever you want. The file type defaults to "Standalone EXE" which includes a built-in video player for Windows. You can also select "Quicktime .MOV" for a video file playable on Mac or PC.


Video exporting will begin immediately, and the file will be saved to your computer. You can copy the downloaded file to a USB stick or transfer it via email, DropBox etc. Generally speaking, a file over 10-20 MB may be too large to email.
