DW Spectrum Release Note for 3.2.0.28749

 

NEW FEATURES

o    Paxton plugin is back. Note that this plugin will not work with the previous builds. It is necessary to completely update the system to this patch (servers and clients) and then update the plugin. Please provide your customized link to the plugin in the release notes.

o    Relative PTZ move

o    Wearable cameras - video recorded by action or drone camera independent of the VMS can be uploaded and used like any other camera with archive.

o    Secondary stream for generic RTSP/HTTP cameras - it is now possible to add so they can be handled as a regular camera, with dual streaming. Once added, primary stream URL now can be modified.

o    Desktop client - can be launched with a command line parameter to define initial layout.

o    "Set to full screen" and "Exit full screen" actions - added to "Event Rules" engine, so video items can be displayed in full screen mode based on events.

o    API: audio export in HLS tracks is supported

o    Strict layout size limit option - users can customize maximum layout width and height in layout settings.
