Archives on any hard drive or storage medium can be encrypted and viewable only on the Desktop, Mobile, and Web clients.
Combine audio and video from different devices. For example, an audio source from a camera with a microphone can be used as an audio source for another camera. Two-way audio button can be placed on a camera without a microphone and used with a different camera that has a speaker attached to it.
360° panorama images and videos that use equidistant projection can now be dewarped in the desktop client.
The client desktop distributive can be released separately from the server distributirve. The client can also automatically download and install the latest version of the desktop client to be compatible with the server’s version.
All Blackjack® servers powered by DW Spectrum IPVMS use SSL/TLS Certificate pinning to render man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks impossible.
Archives can now be backed up based on Motion, Bookmarks, Objects and any combination of them (M &O or O &B, or M, B & O).
Added to the Recording Schedule the following new recording modes: Object only, Object + Low res, Motion + Object and Motion + Object + Low res. On cameras with recording enabled, the last-minute of the recording is now available for playback in the Desktop Client.
Search for objects identified by analytics and stored in video archives by attributes (e.g., object type, color, gender, age, clothing, etc.) in a new pop-out window.
Users can now adjust the information presented in the welcome screen to sort systems by priority, show all or part of the systems available and search for systems by attributes.
Server Web Admin interface allows administrators to add and remove users, as well as view detailed information about Servers, Cameras, and Licenses.
Group resources (cameras, streams, encoders, web pages) in the DW Spectrum IPVMS Desktop to be used in roles and permissions, and for faster navigation of large systems.
Certain interface elements can be saved and restored upon launching the desktop client.
Servers and clients use bearer toekn authentication by default.
All Internet requests use OS SSL/TLS Certificate Validation to prevent MITM (man-in-the-middle) attacks, including but not limited to VMS updates, VMS-Cloud communications, license validation, statistics, etc.
Multi-factor authentication helps prevent account hijacking due to stolen or misplaced credentials. It also prevents unwanted access from credentials left in orphaned remote clients on uncontrolled systems. For cloud users, OAuth2 authentication is used by default, which prevents a server owner from compromising a user’s Cloud password and renders Offline Cloud Login attacks impossible.
Hover over the timeline to preview video in thumbnail format in Windows and macOS Desktop clients.
Local device or service web pages can be proxied via the Server application and viewed via a remote connection.
Added support for ZFS (Zettabyte File System) to the Server.
New native support for MEGApix IVA and IVA+ IP cameras allow users to capture object metadata/events for automation in the rules engine.
Intel® Quick Sync Video uses the dedicated media processing capabilities of Intel Graphics Technology to decode and encode video.
A new and improved way to control PTZ cameras that improves usability, especially in high latency situations with cameras that do not support advanced PTZ.
Improve fisheye dewarping precision by selecting the most suitable lens projection type for your fisheye cameras.

Allows third-party web clients to send audio (from client microphone) to and get audio from cameras.
Time Zone can now be specified for virtual cameras. If “Time Zone” is set to “Auto”, then the time zone is defined by metadata or UTC if there’s no time zone specified in the file. If set to “Client”, the Time Zone is defined by the desktop client.
Placeholders can be added to the HTTP POST request body to be automatically replaced by the corresponding values from Analytics Event parameters. This feature is only applicable to Analytics and Generic Events. Placeholders syntax:

Create customized events to send push notifications to the mobile app. Finally! Push Notifications are here! That’s right. You can now send Push Notifications to DW Spectrum Mobile like a boss.
False positives detection introduced to increase accuracy of detected motion events (e.g., turning on/off lights or switching camera day/night mode are now likely to be ignored).
If a Server with Video Wall licenses fails, the video wall continues working for 7 days. After that, it will be blocked with the error message “Not enough licenses”.
