Wavestore, the British developer of innovative open-platform and highly secure Linux-based Video Management Software (VMS), has launched v6.10 enabling simplified camera setup alongside new features and performance enhancements.
Automatic camera configuration has been introduced for ONVIF compatible cameras, greatly reducing the time it takes to set up systems on-site. Integrators can now simply discover all cameras on the network and apply common ONVIF stream settings for each camera, as a Wavestore generated profile without having to use the camera’s setup screens. For projects with a large number of servers, systems integrators can simply create a single customised configuration file and roll it out across all Wavestore units, greatly which reducing the time spent when commissioning larger projects.
Wavestore’s VMS already delivers lip-synchronised audio as standard but v6.10 fully integrates compatible ONVIF cameras with built-in microphones and speakers to be used as part of a cost-effective two-way audio system. Operators simply click the microphone button on the WaveView client for an individual camera, or a group of cameras, to converse with people or broadcast messages across a site quickly and easily. Audio is included in each channel license and recorded onto a separate track, which is time synchronised and can be played back with associated video from any selected camera.
In addition, major improvements have been made to minimise the latency when using joystick controls, a common problem for network based security systems, providing users with accurate control of connected ONVIF PTZ cameras and Axis’ native HTTP PTZ protocol.
Wavestore v6.10 also introduces a new ‘recording less than intended’ event cause that can be applied to individual cameras. If a configured recording period will exceed the available storage, and previous footage is in danger of being overwritten, then an event can be triggered, such as sending an e-mail to an administrator.
“The success of Wavestore’s VMS depends more than ever on our flexibility, adaptability and responsiveness to the needs of our customers.” says Julian Inman, Head of Product Management. “Many of the enhancements we are delivering in v6.10 are in direct response to customer feedback as Wavestore’s VMS is used in an ever-increasing number of projects around the World.”
Wavestore has also introduced a host of new third-party integrations to its VMS and welcomes new Technology Partners to its ongoing integration programme. These include SALTO ProAccess SPACE Access Control Software and Texecom Premier Elite intruder alarm solutions, combining leading video management from Wavestore with best-in-breed third-party access control technology. Furthermore, significant improvements have been made to Wavestore’s Honeywell Galaxy Interface integration, including the ability to trigger custom events from the panel using SIA level 4, and a new function to use new event types to automatically react on an alarm.
