Changes for v18.8.10 - v19.2.11

  • •Extra module: Added new module “FaceID”. This module recognizes human faces in camera image and compares them to faces from database (a remote LDAP database or a database stored on the same machine). This module only works if connected after the QR Code Recognition or Smart Card Reader modules. QR Code Reader or Smart Card Reader get information about person’s ID and send this meta data to FaceID that searches the database for the person’s face with this information. It can be used in complex access control systems in restricted entry enterprises, in university campuses, in private residences, wherever greater level of security and identity verification of a pass holder is required. This module is purchased separately and activated over the Xeoma Standard or Xeoma Pro licenses. Available for testing in a trial version of Xeoma for 1 hour, after that reconfiguration is required.
  • •Extra module: Added new module “QR Code recognition”. The QR Code Recognition module is a filter module that scans the camera picture for QR code and when finds one, sends the video signal further along the scheme. This module is usually used in chain before the FaceID module which can compare face in camera view with a face of the person identified by that QR code. The module also works with the “Application Runner” module where it can send information about the QR code using the %TEXT% macro. It can be used in complex access control systems in restricted entry enterprises, in university campuses, in private residences, wherever greater level of security and identity verification of a pass holder is required. This module is purchased separately and activated over the Xeoma Standard or Xeoma Pro licenses. Available for testing in a trial version of Xeoma for 1 hour, after that reconfiguration is required.
  • •Extra module: Added new module “SmartHome – RIF+”. This module works with RIF+ automation devices. Various sensors can be connected to the device, and the module can receive their alarms. This module is purchased separately and activated over the Xeoma Standard or Xeoma Pro licenses. Available for testing in a trial version of Xeoma for 1 hour, after that reconfiguration is required.
  • •Extra module: Added new module “Smart-card reader”. The module receives information about the card holder from Omnikey access card readers and passes it further along the chain to the FaceID module to compare the photo from the database with the face of the person in front of the camera. It can be used in complex access control systems in restricted entry enterprises, in university campuses, in private residences, wherever greater level of security and identity verification of a pass holder is required. The module also works with the “Application Runner” module where it can send information about the access card using the %TEXT% macro. This module is purchased separately and activated over the Xeoma Standard or Xeoma Pro licenses. Available for testing in a trial version of Xeoma for 1 hour, then reconfiguration is required.
  • •Extra module: Added new module “Camera-Embedded Detector”. This module can use the built-in detectors and sensors of IP cameras that support the ONVIF protocol, as well as send commands to the camera. With this module in use, you can configure analytics rules in your camera, and stop using Xeoma detectors thus shifting some of the server load to the camera side. This module is purchased separately and activated over the Xeoma Standard or Xeoma Pro licenses. Available for testing in a trial version of Xeoma for 1 hour, then reconfiguration is required.
  • •Extra module: Added new module “Moving to PTZ preset“. When this module received alarms from previous modules in the chain, it can move a selected camera to a pre-defined position. The camera must support PTZ controls though ONVIF protocol. This module is purchased separately and activated over the Xeoma Standard or Xeoma Pro licenses. Available for testing in a trial version of Xeoma for 1 hour, then reconfiguration is required.
  • •Added the ability to search for a person through archive recordings by uploading a photo. The search can be performed in archive recordings of one camera or several at once. To start the search, go to the built-in Xeoma archive viewer’s menu, select the Search by photo option, and upload the photo for search from your device. The function is especially in demand in the “Safe City” systems, in the search for missing or wanted people, as well as in commercial areas when investigating incidents. This feature is purchased separately and activated over the Xeoma Standard or Xeoma Pro licenses. Available for testing in the trial version of Xeoma: the search will yield only one latest incident where this person (face) was detected.
  • •Added search through archive recordings by object types for the previously released Extra module “Object Recognition”. Find this option in the Xeoma Archive Viewer menu. If object visualization is enabled, the recognized objects will also be visualized.
  • •PRO: Added the long-awaited synchronization of archives with the SD card of an IP camera that supports the ONVIF protocol. If the connection with such a camera is interrupted for a while, the recording of events will continue to the camera’s memory card, and after the connection is restored, this missing segment will be downloaded from the camera’s video storage to the Xeoma archive. It works only with ONVIF cameras. Configure this feature in the “Preview and Archive” module settings.
  • •PRO: Added failover (server backup) for the Xeoma Pro Your Cloud mode. Before this improvement you could do that with system tools. Now there’s the built-in Xeoma feature for such “hot” and “cold” servers. See more about Failover here.
  • •PRO: Added LDAP support for devices under ARM architecture. Now all the advantages of active directories can be used on ARM devices like Raspberry, too.
  • •PRO: License Plate Recognition: added the ability to set the number of frames the iANPR utility has to process. If it is not possible to limit the maximum speed of the traffic flow, this new setting, if used properly, can help avoid blurred frames, and thus aid in higher successful number recognition rate.
  • •PRO: Improved search for license plates: now you can run the search through archive recordings for a license number directly from the ANPR log of recognized license plates.
  • •PRO: Xeoma Pro Your Cloud: added the option to limit number of user-created interactive E-Maps.
  • •Added the ability to automatically place active cameras (cameras with triggered detectors) in a separate tab. Try this option in the menu “Layouts” -> “Manage layouts” -> “Larger grid mode” -> “Show only active cameras”. This innovation will allow you to use one of the monitors for displaying streams from cameras where alarm events occurred. The camera disappears from this tab in 10 seconds after the alarm event is finished.
  • •Added long-awaited export of the archive in the timelapse form. Now you can specify the desired speed (frame rate) of the resulting piece before the export starts. This faster playback timelapse effect will help you quickly evaluate what happened outside the Xeoma Archive Viewer. If viewed in the Xeoma’s Archive Viewer, you can use the flexible playback speed to achieve the timelapse effect. This effect is widely popular for visualizing long processes: for monitoring of building erection, or in the scientific fields for watching over plant growth, chemical reactions, etc.
  • •Added digital zoom for moving objects. Now, even if your camera does not have the PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) functions, you can use the ability to automatically track objects or people in the field of view of the camera. Find this option in Main menu -> “Zoom” -> “Automatic objects tracking”. If there are several objects in the frame, the automatic tracking still works flawlessly and monitors the largest object.
  • •Added the ability to display a high resolution stream when viewing all cameras – including on mobile devices. Turn this smart option on in “Layouts” -> “Client decoding settings” -> “Video decoding on the client side for live preview”) and select the settings that suit you and your device best with the slider below.
  • •Multi-server mode: added the ability to use digital zoom. Now you can zoom in on the parts of a camera image in real-time and in the archive, even if you are connected to several servers at once.
  • •Added the ability to download CSV reports from the server via client connection. Now you can get reports from smart modules wherever you are, even if you are connected to the server remotely. Perfect for verticals where mobility and fast assessing of work results is important; for those who want to have access to information anytime, anywhere.
  • •Problem Detector: Added new camera defocus option. Now the program can automatically notify you when camera is out of focus suddenly. This new feature is a great addition for stand-alone systems that work for months without human supervision.
  • •Added support for cameras that use the PSIA protocol, an ONVIF equivalent, which ensures successful synchronization of devices from different manufacturers within a unified system.
  • •Added export of still pictures in PNG and BMP formats (in addition to previously available JPEG). Now you can export a snapshot of the archive recording in these common formats right from the archive viewer
  • •Added the ability to assign access rights to groups of cameras. Ideal for systems with hundreds of cameras. Now you do not need to manually set the access rights to each camera separately. You can divide cameras into groups on any basis (for example, by their geo location) and assign rights to new and old operators to this or that set of cameras. Look for this option in the Main Menu -> Remote Access -> Users.
  • •Added the ability to copy layouts and tabs from one client to another. Now you can share your tabs and camera order configuration with other users of your video surveillance system. Save it to a file and upload it for any other account through the Layouts menu.
  • •Added the ability to prohibit users to change camera order, leaving the possibility to set camera order only to the administrator. Search for this feature in Main Menu -> Remote Access -> Users.
  • •Increased efficiency of sending JPEG images with the %JPEG% ({JPEG}) macro due to getting rid of unnecessary coding.
  • •Added new archive playback speeds. Now you can view your archives 60 and even 900 times faster. Suitable for systems with a lot of records to watch really quickly.
  • •Added support for two options of overwriting the archive: by calendar days and by actual content. In the first case, the old recordings will be overwritten by new ones, for example, after 7 days have passed since the recording date, even if less recordings were made actually (for example, if motion detection was used). In the second case, the actual filling of the archive will be considered: the records will be overwritten, for example, when there are 7 days-worth of actual records stored.
  • •Added the ability to request test licenses of the program directly from its interface.
  • •Free rebranding: Added the ability to fill in the list of servers for clients to connect to with the parameter. Use this option to provide operators with a customized version of Xeoma with a list of servers to connect to already filled-in.
  • •Added the ability to edit created PTZ tours. Learn more about PTZ presets and guard/patrol tours here.
