VMS latest

by Mark Rowe

Wavestore, the British developer of open-platform Linux-based Video Management Software (VMS), has launched v6.10.

Automatic camera configuration has been introduced for ONVIF compatible cameras, reducing the time it takes to set up systems on-site. Integrators can now 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 set-up screens. For projects with a large number of servers, systems integrators can create a single customised configuration file and roll it out across Wavestore units, reducing the time spent when commissioning larger projects.

Wavestore’s VMS already delivers lip-synchronised audio; v6.10 fully integrates compatible ONVIF cameras with built-in microphones and speakers to be used as part of a two-way audio system. Operators click the microphone button on the WaveView client for a camera, or a group of cameras, to converse with people or broadcast messages across a site. 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.

The developers say latency has been minimised when using joystick controls, a common problem for network based security systems, providing users with control of connected ONVIF PTZ cameras and Axis’ native HTTP PTZ protocol.

Wavestore v6.10 also introduces a new ‘recording less than intended’ event rule 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.

Julian Inman, Head of Product Management says: “The success of Wavestore’s VMS depends more than ever on our flexibility, adaptability and responsiveness to the needs of our customers. 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 new third-party integrations to its VMS and welcomes new Technology Partners to its integration programme. These include SALTO ProAccess SPACE Access Control Software and Texecom Premier Elite intruder alarms, combining video management from Wavestore with third-party access control. Wavestore’s Honeywell Galaxy Interface integration now includes 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.

Wavestore v6.10 is now shipping with all new orders and is available as an upgrade for users who have v6 license. Integration modules are available to bolt onto existing solutions or can be ordered at time of purchase with new solutions.
