Wavestore Rapid Search Capabilities

Wavestore’s logarithmic search bar and Smart Search functionality delivers pin-point control of your video.

You may be looking to install a small video only application or perhaps intend to deploy 255 Wavestore PetaBloks grouped together to provide up to 520.2 PetaBytes of data storage in order to retain images captured by high numbers of multi-megapixel cameras over long periods of time.

Either way, at Wavestore we appreciate you will want to be able to very quickly and without fuss, access recorded video of any events or incidents which require a rapid response. This is why the Wavestore VMS provides you with a wide range of search options to help retrieve the video you need to review at lightening fast speed.

  • Fast Forward/Fast Rewind

Logarithmic Scrub Bar

Available with Wavestore v6.14, the Logarithmic Scrub Bar will help you search through vast amounts of data to instantly locate and display video of activity which has occurred at a specific time. It is an enhanced play bar feature which allows you, in just a few steps, to quickly home in on video captured at a precise moment in time. Using a mouse, you can easily accelerate or decrease the speed at which recorded video is searched. The Logarithmic Scrub Bar also support quad view which allows recorded video captured by four separate cameras, to be synchronised and displayed on the same screen.

Smart Search

Wavestore’s Smart Search feature, which is compatible with ONVIF Profile S cameras, enables operators to highlight a specific region within a camera’s field of view, such as a doorway, set the sensitivity level and then instantaneously retrieve video relating to any movement in that area. This allows large amounts of recorded footage to be forensically 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.

Wavestore’s Events & Metadata Engine

Wavestore’s ability to interact with third-party devices, systems and software such as Access Control, sensors, Electronic Point of Sale system (EPoS), Intruder Detection, ANPR and video analytics means event-based metadata captured by any of these hardware or software based solutions can be searched if there is a need to review related video. This search method is particularly effective on busy sites where there may be a large number of pre-specified events occurring within a short space of time. The search criteria could, for example, be to only locate events in which a red or white vehicle is in a camera’s field of view or when a particular named person has accessed a front door of a building.

Fast Forward/Fast Rewind

Whilst use of the logarithmic scrub bar, Smart Search or Events & Metadata Engine are highly effective and efficient ways to search recorded video, Wavestore also provides the option to search using traditional fast rewind and forward options, with the added benefit that you can do so at up to 8,192 frames per second.
