Off the shelf options

by Mark Rowe

After it introduced V6 of its Video Management Software (VMS), Wavestore has launched two new ‘off the shelf’ options.

Available from the company’s authorised distributors and integration/reseller partners, the new hardware units come pre-installed with Wavestore V6. With the option to upgrade or expand without having to reinstall the software, users can choose from Base, Premium or Enterprise levels and the exact number of camera licenses required.

Wavestore’s P-Series appliances, pictured, are designed to offer recording management and control. As a standalone unit, the appliances are able to operate Wavestore’s WaveView client software, as well as the firm’s VMS from the same unit. WaveView Mobile client software provides on-the-move connectivity for viewing and playback. Up to 24 IP cameras can be connected to each appliance to fulfil the requirements of most small to medium sized projects. For large and distributed projects, multiple P-Series appliances can be configured into groups with local or remote client viewing and control privileges.


Rack mounted E-Series servers are available in pure IP or hybrid versions and can be operated remotely via the WaveView client software and also by users on the go, using the free WaveView Mobile app. With the ability to connect up to 24 network cameras per standalone unit, users are able to protect their investment in legacy analogue technology with the option of a hybrid unit which delivers 16 IP and 16 analogue channels (32 total). As with the P-Series appliances, E-Series servers can be used in single site applications, or grouped for small, medium and multiple site projects.


The ONVIF compliant P-Series appliances and E-Series servers both offer the company’s ‘any video, any format’ philosophy which enable users to use camera technologies and compression formats offered by manufacturers. Both also accommodate two x 3.5-inch internal hard drives to provide the potential for 12TB of storage. This means that users can typically expect in the region of 31 days’ storage of images from more than 20 Full HD cameras being recorded in real-time, 24 hours, the developers say. Customisable recording rates can be set per individual channel for both normal and ‘on alarm’ recording and a mix of camera technologies, including 360 degree fisheye cameras, are supported.

The firm points to the potential to integrate with third-party technologies for access control, video analytics, intruder alarms and perimeter detection PIDs and sensors, as well as audio, EPoS (electronic point of sale) and transactional text systems.

Julian Inman, Product Manager at Wavestore, said: “The recently introduced new version of our VMS, V6, offers far greater flexibility to specifiers and systems integrators when they are looking to choose the most appropriate level of our software required for each project. The options we have now introduced in respect of the new appliances and servers, mean we have gone even further to help our customers take advantage of our award winning software in order to unlock the full potential of an integrated security system.”
