Wavestore has introduced an updated version of its open-platform and highly secure Linux-based Video Management Software (VMS).

Our latest release offers enhanced features that aim to improve efficiencies both at personnel levels and at a software level. With the 6:24 update we’ve introduced the ability to see multiple instances of a search result on one screen, significantly increased event rule capabilities and included a smarter way to export and back up data.

Multiscreen Smart Search results

Wavestore v6.24 introduces a superior method of searching through video data, which enables users to select an area to analyse and review all instances of an event in that area within a multiscreen display. This capability vastly reduces the amount of time taken to find the desired instance and allows users to close any views they instantly know to be redundant, leaving only those that need further analysis. This new and improved way of not just searching but reviewing potentially vast amounts of data has applications across the board to provide time- and cost-efficiencies when searching for a recent event, conducting post-event analysis or determining a particular change of conditions.


Event capabilities expansion

Event Rules can now be configured by combining event triggers from multiple different sources using Boolean operators; AND, OR and XOR to produce event responses when just the right set of circumstances occur. These can even have individual timers associated with them, for instance trigger B must happen within so many seconds of trigger A going active, and can be scheduled for specific time of day using the in-built schedule facility, or when a particular keyword is received from a 3rd party system e.g. refund from a POS system or a particular car number/license plate.

To make these new events rules capabilities easy to use, a brand-new Event Rules setup screen has been developed using an intuitive graphical interface to show instantly and clearly what will trigger an event, even for the most complex set of input conditions.

Storage and back up

To further assist with improved post-event search and storage facilities, is the ability to export to a UNC network location, using cross-platform capabilities. This enables users to save to shared network folders quickly and easily using defined paths.

With the ability to set up a wide variety of useful Wavestore features, comes the need to back those configurations up or save them for future purposes. With the 6.24update, users can now use the Batch Config Tool which allows mass backup of such files.
