Wavestore launches v6.6 of its VMS

Wavestore, the British manufacturer of open platform Video Management Software (VMS), has launched v6.6 of its VMS to deliver enhanced functionality to systems integrators and end-users alike. This new version is available as an upgrade for existing users and will be shipped as standard with all new orders.

The latest version introduces Wavestore’s Smart Search feature, compatible with ONVIF Profile S cameras, where operators can highlight a specific region within a scene, set the sensitivity level and instantaneously retrieve video relating to any movement in that area. This allows large amounts of recorded footage to be searched quickly and efficiently, presenting only the required video to users. For added convenience, the relevant search results are highlighted as a different colour on the playback time line bar and can simply be clicked to display the relevant video footage.

Situational Awareness

In addition, v6.6 delivers enhanced event management to improve an operator’s situational awareness of important events as they occur. Alerts from any integrated third-party equipment, as well as the VMS itself, are instantly available in an easy to read and intuitive form to the operator. This can include events from any mix of devices and sub-systems including access control, intruder detection, BMS, and analytics technology. These are presented in the live event stream window of Wavestore’s WaveView client, demonstrating the unique “One Screen, Total Control” capability of Wavestore’s VMS, and can also be used to trigger responses both on the Wavestore server itself or on external systems via the powerful event rules engine.

Julian Inman, Head of Product Management, comments “Wavestore has always had lightning-fast search and playback capability with its play bar feature but with the introduction of Smart Search we add even more power to forensic search. What’s more, with Wavestore’s ‘one screen, total control’ philosophy, operators can simply control and manage their entire best-in-breed security solution from just a single screen, getting exactly what they want for their specific requirements”.

Latest integrations

Wavestore’s Open Platform Technology Partner Programme continues to expand with v6.6 integrating seamlessly as standard with the latest camera models from leading vendors such as 360 Vision, Axis, Dahua, Hanwha Techwin, Hikvision, Mobotix, Sony, Uniview and Vivotek.

Alongside this, several new and enhanced optional Integration Modules are now available, including Raytec LED lighting and Datapath video walls.

How to get the latest version

Wavestore v6.6 is now shipping with all new orders and is available as an update for existing users who have active upgrade bundles. Integration modules are available to bolt onto existing solutions or can be ordered at time of purchase with new solutions.
