- Integration updates
Lenel, DSX, RS-2, ICT, PCSC, Micros XBR
Here are some of the features in detail:
Time Expiry per camera
Numerous installations have specific requirements on the maximum number of days that can be stored per camera. Still other installations may have requirements for the minimum number of days a specific cameraâ€™s data must be retained.
Version 3.3 adds the ability to assign a maximum number of days of storage on a per-camera basis, and also a minimum number of days of storage on a per-camera basis. This features is accessed on the Storage Setup page.
Ioimage Video Analytics Support
Version 3.3 adds support for the ioimage line of IP cameras and encoders with integrated video analytics. ioimage devices embed the analytics capability â€œat the edgeâ€, within the camera or encoder. Included with each ioimage device is a host of analytic functions, detailed here.
By incorporating the analytics in the camera, adding analytic functionality is as simple as adding another IP camera, and does not require any additional software or hardware to be installed on the server.
Analytic routine configuration is done through each IP cameraâ€™s browser page. Once configured, exacqVision reads the analytic alarm information in the same way as motion detection information is read. Through the event linking function of exacqVision, any ioimage alarm can be mapped to any user-defined activity on exacqVision, such as record-on-alarm, alarm e-mail generation, video output switch at a monitoring station, and more.
International Language Support
Support for a number of languages has been added, including German, Polish, Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Japanese, and Chinese. Many additional localizations are in process.
We utilize a Pootle translation server for collaborative localizations, the same method used by software packages such as Firefox, WordPress and OpenOffice. This enables our international partners to have specific localized versions for their markets; for example, Chilean Spanish vs. Castilian Spanish.
IP Camera Enhancements & Additions
Arecont IP Camera Plug-in Improvements, New Cameras
The Arecont Vision megapixel IP camera plug-in has been completely rewritten. Supports both JPEG and H.264 cameras; TFTP enhancements for higher framerates; improved â€œsmart searchâ€ capability; and enhanced input trigger processing. Support has also been added for the new H.264 MegaDome line, the AV1355, AV2155, AV3155, and AV5155.
ACTi IP Camera Plug-in Improvements, New Cameras
ACTi PTZ responsiveness has been substantially improved in Version 3.3. In addition, support has been added for the ACTi ACM-8511 and ACM-8211/8201 series of IP PTZ cameras.
Panasonic 4-channel IP Encoder Support Added
Support has been added for the Panasonic WJ-NT304 4-input MPEG4/MJPEG encoder. The up-the-coax feature of this encoder makes it particularly attractive for connecting to legacy analog PTZ cameras.
Axis HDTV IP Camera Support Added
Support has been added for the Axis Q1755 HDTV H.264 IP camera. Full 16×9 resolution is supported.
Integration has been completed with exacqVision for access control systems from Lenel (more info here), DSX, RS-2, PCSC and ICT (application story here) and for the Micros/DataVanatage XBR retail analytics package. Contact us for projects requiring this integration.
