Tested with Exacq 9.2.3.130093
Tested with SightLogix Firmware 15.10.24
  • *Note: Exacq-SightLogix ONVIF integration was broken as of Exacq server version 9.8.5 and is repaired with the unreleased server version 19.12.106.0, which can be obtained via request to Exacq. These fixes are expected to be released in Exacq version 20.03 in March 2020 (new versions require SightLogix firmware 15.12.135 and 10.10.84, which is backwards compatible with Exacq 9.2.3).
