09 Apr Wavestore v6.26 offers improved situational awareness for security camera operators
Wavestore is introducing an updated version of its open-platform and secure Linux-based Video Management Software (VMS).
Wavestore v6.26 enables bounding boxes and polygons to be rendered directly in the WaveView client. This can greatly improve situational awareness by instantly drawing operators’ attention to objects of interest. In this release, ONVIF analytics metadata from Bosch cameras is supported and other data sources will be added in future releases.
Simplifying the system set up is key to improving efficiencies and so with 6.26, Wavestore has added the ability to enrol multiple cameras simply by using a “from – to” address range. Multiple ranges can be added in this manner, and for more complex network configurations it can even include an address range which sits outside of any of the subnets of the server network interfaces. Suitable routing would still be required.
The 6.26 release also comes the requirements to change the install password on first login. In addition, there is no default user account created along with a configurable lockout if there are repeated failed login attempts.
The addition of disk write rates for each disk in the server statistics data has improved system diagnostics. The configuration file can now be sent automatically in response to an event, such a system fault, to enable speedy resolution of problems on site.
“One of Wavestore’s many strengths is it’s rapid retrieval of video, no matter what size of images are being recorded or their retention time. Now we are building on that foundation to add many new capabilities which will combine to make the platform a truly intelligent Video Management Solution” said Julian Inman, product director for Wavestore. “The first of these, introduced with 6.26, is the highlighting of objects of interest along with the storing of object type and position metadata. Subsequent releases will continue this exciting journey; using this data to enable powerful event and graphical searching capabilities”
