Wavestore has announced the introduction of additional features and functionality in its new V6 Video Management Software (VMS) and WaveView client software.
Known for providing leading system integrity and user friendliness, many major improvements have been incorporated within Wavestore V6 with the objective of enabling end users to securely and more easily “unlock the full potential” of an integrated security system.
Widely referred to as the ‘operator’s favourite GUI’, Wavestore’s graphical display has been revised with a fresh new look featuring updated icons and graphics, making it even more intuitive to use. The addition of dockable components and ‘configurability’ of the live event stream window provides an enhanced user experience which allows individual operators to arrive at their pre-customised screen layouts each time they log in.
V6 also introduces camera short-cut keys using the keyboard number pad for added convenience and security enhancements to protect against malicious hacking attempts, including enhanced encryption and a high-security password policy.
“Many of the new or updated features in V6 have been developed as a direct result of feedback from our worldwide network of customers,” said Julian Inman, product manager at Wavestore. “For example, Wavestore’s client side de-warping feature, which supports a wide range of 360 degree cameras, now offers greater flexibility by enabling the cameras to be fitted on angled surfaces, and not just flat ceilings or walls. We’ve also added full SDK integration with ImmerVision lenses and Oncam cameras.”
V6 maintains Wavestore’s ‘any video, any format’ philosophy which sees it supporting all leading camera vendors across multiple camera technologies. These include very high megapixel, Ultra HD, 4K, HD, 360° fisheye, thermal and analogue cameras operating on H.264, MJPEG, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, MxPEG and JPEG2000 video formats.
Improved support for larger systems
As the result of an update incorporated within V6, Wavestore’s proprietary Large Allocated Storage System (LASS) now empowers the VMS to manage an industry-leading 384 Petabytes of data per server. As such,V6 claims to set a new industry benchmark for Enterprise level applications with effectively no limit to the mass of images it can manage. The calculation and system design process is also greatly simplified.
Intelligent failover is now also available at Wavestore Enterprise level to ensure minimal disruption to recording should a fault occur, and to deliver resilience and peace of mind for mission-critical applications.
“We’ve made it as flexible as possible for specifiers and systems integrators to choose the right level of software required for a each project, while our simple ‘buy once’ licence model enables additional licenses to be purchased if and when a system grows,” explained Inman.
“Wavestore can be cost-effectively deployed for small to medium-size projects with either our Base or Premium levels of software, and then upgraded when required to Enterprise level for larger or more critical applications.”
