Better Day-to-Day Monitoring

Embed a web page as a panel within the client

Users can embed a web page as a panel within the client to give them important information such as weather updates or breaking news headlines so they can better react to imminent events that could potentially affect their business.

Enhanced event linking, including with PowerSeries Neo virtual zones

Operators can now display any event linkage as an association which will appear on top of the live video feed. Ideal for associating access control or intrusion breaches, this capability is also very useful in applications such as retail, where metal/foil detectors are now being deployed to detect foil-lined bags, a new tool for shoplifters. Once the serial data profile is set up from the detector, whenever a foil-lined bag is detected, an alert will trigger and automatically appear on top of the corresponding live video, providing critical information to the retailer trying to prevent rising theft.

This event linking functionality is also available with DSC PowerSeries Neo Virtual Zones which provides better integration between DSC’s access control products and IVTVision.

Support for higher resolution displays

IVTVision 8.8 introduces support for higher-resolution displays, including 4K monitors as well as Retina displays (for Mac).

Single sign-on support when syncing with IVTVision ESM

Users can now take advantage of single sign-on support when syncing IVTVision with ESM. Once configured, a user can log in to IVTVision and access ESM without having to enter his or her credentials a second time.
 

Enhanced Administrator Control

More control over how and when users access the system

This latest release adds very important controls for administrators looking to more strictly manage how and when users can access the VMS.

·         Expiration of inactive accounts: Admins can now configure user accounts to expire once they have met a specified inactivity threshold (e.g. a certain number of days). For example, if a user hasn’t logged in for 90 days, his or her login will be marked as expired and the user won’t be able to log in until the admin re-enables the account.

·         Automatic unlock of locked out accounts: Admin users can configure accounts that have been locked out due to failed login attempts to automatically unlock after a certain amount of time.

·         Temporary guest accounts: Admin users can now create temporary guest accounts which allow users to access the system for a limited amount of time. This can give third parties such as law enforcement system access for a specified time period.

·         Expanded access to preset tours: Users with “Allow PTZ” permission can now start and stop preset tours.

Simplified Camera Configuration

Add multiple IP cameras at one time

For projects requiring dozens or hundreds of cameras across multiple servers, adding each camera one at a time can be a tedious and time-consuming task. With IVTVision 8.8, users can import multiple IP cameras to several servers at one time via a CSV file, which includes the cameras’ IP addresses, usernames, passwords, etc.

Preview image on mouse hover to quickly find camera location

IVTVision 8.8 accelerates the process of identifying where cameras are located (e.g. lobby, parking lot) by displaying a preview image of a camera’s live feed when a user hovers over that camera’s name. This makes the configuration process significantly faster and more efficient.

 

Web and Mobile Improvements

Improved cybersecurity and video export with web services

IVTVision 8.8 improves cybersecurity by requiring admin users to create a new password on their first login. It also improves the video export process by allowing the camera dewarp settings to persist in the video export. MP4 and AVI (Linux) exports are now supported.

Auto select appropriate streams for multi-stream cameras

When selecting a multi-stream camera, the app now considers the image’s size and quality when selecting the correct stream. This will improve the app’s responsiveness when retrieving these video feeds.

Respect camera rotation when retrieving video

Previously, for cameras with a rotation set to 90 or 180 degrees, IVTVision Mobile was displaying a smaller image which didn’t fully utilize the entire screen space. IVTVision 8.8 introduces a fix to this problem so the image takes advantage of the full screen size when retrieving a video feed.
