NETAVIS Observer 4.5 is out now in its fourth version 4.5.3! With many new video management features and an innovative set of seamlessly integrated iCAT traffic video analytics, this release offers new highlights in addition to all previous functionality.
Among them are the picture in picture archive access within the online monitor, a versatile live stream embedding in websites, an archive efficiency feature for improved utilization of storage capacity, a generic RTSP driver enabling video streaming for many non-integrated cameras, a visual camera status overview and many more.
ARCHIVE ACCESS FROM ONLINE MONITOR
Viewing event recordings within the Online Monitor
The use of dynamic views triggered by iCAT and motion detection events was significantly simplified by the addition of a new configuration menu.
Combined with the dynamic view control feature, archive access within the Online Monitor view ports now allows operators to quickly view event-triggered recordings without having to switch to the archive.
They are therefore able to keep an eye on live camera-streams while reviewing critical events. This feature is included in every NETAVIS Observer edition.
Displaying camera’s live video streams in browsers for embedding into websites
Video4Web replaces Snapplet with a significantly more versatile solution for embedding cameras’ live video streams in websites. It supports full screen mode, doesn’t require having Java installed and works with desktop as well as mobile browsers and even old versions of Internet Explorer without MJPEG support.
This client module is optionally available for NETAVIS Observer Basic, eXtended and Enterprise editions.
Traffic Monitoring, Stopped Vehicle Detection, Wrong Way Detection
iCAT Traffic is the innovative module which extends the outstanding NETAVIS iCAT video analytics solution for traffic surveillance. It detects traffic state changes, stopped vehicles and wrong way drivers on expressways and highways and astounds with self learning effects.
Its reliable analytics algorithms combined with an easy-to-configure interface are a powerful combination to analyze traffic and detect dangerous situations. This new iCAT module is optionally available for NETAVIS Enterprise edition.
GENERIC RTSP DRIVER
Enabling video streaming for many non-integrated cameras
The generic RTSP driver enables MJPEG, H.264, and MPEG-4 streaming for many cameras whose drivers are not integrated in NETAVIS Observer.
It is necessary that the camera makes these streams available via RTSP and that the configuration (stream resolution, fps, etc.) is done in the camera itself. This feature is included in every NETAVIS Observer edition.
AXIS T8310 CONTROL BOARD INTEGRATION
Controlling Observer with the jog dial, keypad, and joystick
The AXIS T8310 Video Surveillance Control Board has been integrated into NETAVIS Observer 4.5. Many functions of the Online Monitor or Archive such as navigation between views, PTZ control, and archive playback can be controlled with the jog dial, keypad, and joystick.Source: netavis.net
