5.0.0.35064 Video Management System
PUBLISHED 20 Jun 2022

Release Notes:

  • BREAKING CHANGES AND KNOWN ISSUES:
    • Users on VMS Mobile 21.1 or earlier can no longer access systems running VMS 5.0 or later and must update to at least VMS Mobile 22.1.
    • M1 Mac users will not be able to connect to their older Systems via the Desktop Client’s compatibility mode.
    • Login with cloud credentials does not work without internet connections anymore.
    • Features unavailable on the Web Client and Mobile Client:
      • Archive encryption
      • Last minute recording
    • The Resource Panel and Notification Panel can no longer be pinned/unpinned.
    • Removed context menu and hotkeys for web pages:
      • Enter - Maximize Item
      • I - Show Info
      • Del - Remove from Layout
    • Bosch analytics. Support suspended for:
      • Blurry signal
      • Flame detection
      • Signal loss
      • Smoke detection
  • OPERATING SYSTEMS/PLATFORMS
    • Added support for Macs with the Apple M1 chip. A separate distribution is provided:
      • The regular distribution can be installed on x64-based Macs and M1 Macs but is not optimized for M1 Macs. Note that this distribution is not available for versions 4.2 and older so Mac M1 users will not be able to connect to their old systems in Compatibility Mode.
      • The M1 distribution cannot be installed on x64-based Macs.
    • The Desktop Client now works on Mac computers with Apple Silicon (e.g. Apple M1 chip).
    • Added support for Raspberry Pi 4.
    • Added support for MacOS 12 (Monterey).
    • Added support for Windows 11.
    • Added support for Windows Server 2022.
  • NEW FEATURES:
    • All internet requests use OS SSL/TLS Certificate Validation to prevent MITM attacks, including but not limited to VMS updates, VMS-Cloud communications, license validation, statistics, etc.
    • All Server connections use SSL/TLS Certificate pinning to render MITM attacks impossible:
      • Servers exchange certificates on merge and validate them on every connection.
      • Clients pin certificates on the first connection and validate them on each subsequent connection.
      • Clients using Cloud Connect validate Servers through the Cloud.
      • Clients may use strict mode to limit their connections to only trusted Servers.
    • Servers and Clients use new session-based (bearer token) authentication by default.
      • For local users, old authentication is disabled by default, which prevents MD5 password storage in the local DB.
      • 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.
      • Two-factor authentication may be enabled on the Cloud to make OAuth2 authentication even more secure.
      • Many Server API calls require a fresh user session to execute, which requires password confirmation at the API level.
    • Redesigned Server Web Admin:
      • Users can be added and removed. Passwords can be changed.
      • Three new tabs:
        • “Servers” - storage information and ability to add external storage.
        • “Cameras” - camera information, ability to enable recording and change motion sensitivity.
        • “Licenses” - all license information and ability to activate licenses.
    • Independent Desktop Client Updates:
      • The Desktop Client distributive can now be released separate from the Server distributive.
      • The Desktop Client can automatically download and install the latest version of the Desktop Client compatible with the current Server version.
    • The Objects Panel was redesigned to provide a user-friendly object search function.

      • View all or a subset of discovered systems by selecting a display mode:
        • All Systems
        • Favorites (shows only favorited systems)
        • Hidden (shows only hidden systems)
      • System sorting priority takes into account the added statuses (Favorite/Hidden)
      • Added an option to search systems by certain attributes:
        • System Name
        • Server Name
        • IP address (from any of the Servers discovered by the Desktop Client)
        • System owner (only for cloud systems)
        • User's email (only for cloud systems)
    • Users can now organize cameras and other resources into custom groups in the Resource Tree. To create a group, select two or more resources, right-click the selection, and click Create Group.
    • Video Preview Thumbnail (only for Windows and macOS) - displayed when hovering the mouse cursor over the timeline.
    • Archive Encryption - if enabled, the video archive will be encrypted and viewable only in the Desktop Client, Mobile Client, Web Admin, and Cloud Portal.
    • Audio Video Mapping:
      • The audio source from a camera or I/O module can be used in place of a microphone for another camera.
      • The 2-way audio button can be used on cameras without speakers to transmit the audio to another device that has a speaker.
    • 360° panorama images and videos that use equidistant projection can now be dewarped in the Desktop Client.
    • Using the Desktop Client, web pages which are not typically accessible on the client computer can now be proxied via the Server.
    • Restore the previous session - states of certain interface elements can be saved and restored after launching the Desktop Client.
    • Client Javascript API embedded in Web Pages to enable additional functionality:
      • Open/close cameras
      • Play/pause videos
    • Added support for ZFS (Zettabyte File System) to the Server.
  • IMPROVEMENTS:
    • New system setting and general improvements to HTTPS cameras:
      • Some cameras did not work in the HTTPS-only mode. Fixed.
      • Introduced a system-wide setting that forces HTTPS only communication for cameras (System Administration -> "Use only HTTPS to connect to cameras"). If this setting is enabled, the server will drop connections to cameras that do not support HTTPS or a supported proprietary API protocol.
    • Improved "Camera Settings" dialogs:
      • Added new recording modes to the Recording Schedule:
      • Object only
      • Object + Low res

      • The Recording tab better alerts the user when there are not enough licenses on the system.
      • A warning banner on the Analytics tab will be shown when recording is not enabled on the camera.
      • PTZ sensitivity can now be modified in the Expert tab.
      • The mount correction angle preview now shows a virtual rotation of the camera around its optical axis.

      • Rules can be created in VMS to send Push Notifications to mobile devices.
      • Users can receive push notifications from multiple systems and turn on/off notifications for specific systems.
      • In order to receive Push Notifications, users must be logged into the Cloud in Mobile Client.
      • Users can create custom text for notifications in the Rules Engine via Desktop Client.
    • Health Monitoring - Available in the Server Web Admin interface and Cloud Portal, Health Monitoring provides administrators detailed information about a System’s health, including, but not limited to:
      • Alerts - automatically detected / identified problems with a System
      • System Info (# of servers, channels, storage located, users, and version)
      • Servers (storage detailed state, CPU usage, NICs state, hardware spec, etc.)
      • Cameras (online/offline state, resolution, fps, quality, firmware version, etc.)
      • Storage Locations (path, server, type, status, read/write rate, size, usage %)
      • Network Interfaces (name, server, state, IP address, I/O rates)
      • Desktop Clients connected to Servers.
    • New Embedded Browser - Desktop Client now uses a full-featured embedded Chromium browser (v.65.0.3325.230) to display web pages on layouts:
      • Download Files on Web-Page - the embedded browser in Desktop Client now supports downloading and saving files.
      • Cameras Web Page in Camera Settings Dialog - camera web pages can now be opened up in the Camera Settings dialog allowing users to configure/access camera web pages inside Desktop Client even when on a different Subnet (i.e., remote connections / outside the LAN / WAN). Server acts like an HTTP(s) proxy from cameras to Desktop Clients.
    • Video Wall Failover - 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".
    • Analytics Events Region of Interest (ROI) - Now it is possible to draw lines, boxes, polygons and more when configuring a video analytic from the Desktop Client (no need to go to the camera web page).
      • Currently supports Hanwha AI cameras using firmware version 1.41.xx or higher.
  • PLUGIN / METADATA SDK ENABLED FEATURES

    • Best Server Selection (while connecting to a Cloud-connected Multi-Server System):
      • In prior releases, Desktop Client would connect to a random available server via Cloud. Now Cloud connections are routed through the Server with the best uplink.
      • Added the ability for users to specify the preferred Server for connections. The configured Desktop Client will attempt to connect to the preferred Server first, and if it is not reachable, it will detect and connect via the Server with the best uplink.
    • 2-way Audio API - Allows third-party web clients to send audio (from client microphone) to and get audio from cameras.
    • Added Time Zone option for Virtual 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.
    • Server Side Motion Detection improved - 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)
    • Additional action parameter placeholders for the "Do HTTP request" action - 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:
      • {event.cameraId} – replaced by the camera ID (e.g., {{{ad1d1b6c-7013-0049-6fd4-ff15450e4716}}})
      • {event.cameraName} – replaced by the camera name (e.g., PND-9080R)
      • {event.eventType} – replaced by the event type (e.g., nx.stub.objectInTheArea or nx.stub.lineCrossing)
      • {event.eventName} – replaced by the event name (e.g., Object in the area or Line crossing)
      • {event.caption} – replaced by the caption (e.g., “Line crossing - impulse event (caption)”)
      • {event.description} – replaced by the description (e.g., "Line crossing - impulse event (description)").
    • Improved MacOS performance and introduced an experimental setting to limit frame rate and reduce CPU load (see Local Settings -> Advanced).
    • Improved cloud connectivity on certain network environments.
    • Added the ability to pin the Timeline in fullscreen mode:
      • When the Timeline is pinned it will remain fixed on the screen.
      • If the Timeline is pinned in fullscreen mode and the user leaves fullscreen it will be pinned for all cameras on the layout when the user returns to fullscreen mode.
    • Database backups are now categorized into the following types:
      • Created after system merge

  • ANALYTICS PLUGIN SETTINGS IMPROVEMENTS/FIXES
    • Added the possibility to choose a specific video stream that will be used for analysis by a video analytics plugin. This option can be disabled in plugin manifest (hideStreamSelection).
    • Analytics plugin manifest now supports sections.
    • Simultaneous operation of multiple Device Agents running on the same camera is now supported.
    • Analytics settings were changed to their default value after a plugin upgrade. Fixed.
    • Objects boxes were not shown on the camera if it was not re-opened on a layout after enabling the metadata plugin for the first time. Fixed.

    • All internet requests use OS SSL/TLS Certificate Validation to prevent MITM attacks, including but not limited to VMS updates, VMS-Cloud communications, license validation, statistics, etc.
    • All Server connections use SSL/TLS Certificate pinning to render MITM attacks impossible:
      • Servers exchange certificates on merge and validate them on every connection.
      • Clients pin certificates on the first connection and validate them on each subsequent connection.
      • Clients using Cloud Connect validate Servers through the Cloud.
      • Clients may use strict mode to limit their connections to only trusted Servers.
    • Servers and Clients use new session-based (bearer token) authentication by default.
      • For local users, old authentication is disabled by default, which prevents MD5 password storage in the local DB.
      • 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. [NOT IN BETA]
      • Two-factor authentication may be enabled on the Cloud to make OAuth2 authentication even more secure.[NOT IN BETA]
      • Many Server API calls require a fresh user session to execute, which requires password confirmation at the API level.

    • Using the Desktop Client, web pages which are not typically accessible on the client computer can now be proxied via the Server.
    • Restore the previous session - states of certain interface elements can be saved and restored after launching the Desktop Client.
    • Client Javascript API embedded in Web Pages to enable additional functionality:
      • Open/close cameras
      • Play/pause videos
    • Added support for ZFS (Zettabyte File System) to the Server.
  • IMPROVEMENTS:
    • New system setting and general improvements to HTTPS cameras:
      • Some cameras did not work in the HTTPS-only mode. Fixed.
      • Introduced a system-wide setting that forces HTTPS only communication for cameras (System Administration -> "Use only HTTPS to connect to cameras"). If this setting is enabled, the server will drop connections to cameras that do not support HTTPS or a supported proprietary API protocol.
    • Improved "Camera Settings" dialogs:
      • Added new recording modes to the Recording Schedule:
      • Object only
      • Object + Low res

      • The Recording tab better alerts the user when there are not enough licenses on the system.
      • A warning banner on the Analytics tab will be shown when recording is not enabled on the camera.
      • PTZ sensitivity can now be modified in the Expert tab.
      • The mount correction angle preview now shows a virtual rotation of the camera around its optical axis.

  • OPERATING SYSTEMS/PLATFORMS
    • Added support for Macs with the Apple M1 chip. A separate distribution is provided:
      • The regular distribution can be installed on x64-based Macs and M1 Macs but is not optimized for M1 Macs. Note that this distribution is not available for versions 4.2 and older so Mac M1 users will not be able to connect to their old systems in Compatibility Mode.
      • The M1 distribution cannot be installed on x64-based Macs.
    • The Desktop Client now works on Mac computers with Apple Silicon (e.g. Apple M1 chip).
    • Added support for Raspberry Pi 4.
    • Added support for MacOS 12 (Monterey).
    • Added support for Windows 11.
    • Added support for Windows Server 2022.
  • NEW FEATURES:
    • All internet requests use OS SSL/TLS Certificate Validation to prevent MITM attacks, including but not limited to VMS updates, VMS-Cloud communications, license validation, statistics, etc.
    • All Server connections use SSL/TLS Certificate pinning to render MITM attacks impossible:
      • Servers exchange certificates on merge and validate them on every connection.
      • Clients pin certificates on the first connection and validate them on each subsequent connection.
      • Clients using Cloud Connect validate Servers through the Cloud.
      • Clients may use strict mode to limit their connections to only trusted Servers.
    • Servers and Clients use new session-based (bearer token) authentication by default.
      • For local users, old authentication is disabled by default, which prevents MD5 password storage in the local DB.
      • 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. [NOT IN BETA]
      • Two-factor authentication may be enabled on the Cloud to make OAuth2 authentication even more secure.[NOT IN BETA]
      • Many Server API calls require a fresh user session to execute, which requires password confirmation at the API level.
    • Redesigned Server Web Admin:
      • Users can be added and removed. Passwords can be changed.
      • Three new tabs:
        • “Servers” - storage information and ability to add external storage.
        • “Cameras” - camera information, ability to enable recording and change motion sensitivity.
        • “Licenses” - all license information and ability to activate licenses.
    • Independent Desktop Client Updates:
      • The Desktop Client distributive can now be released separate from the Server distributive.
      • The Desktop Client can automatically download and install the latest version of the Desktop Client compatible with the current Server version.
    • The Objects Panel was redesigned to provide a user-friendly object search function.

        • All Systems
        • Favorites (shows only favorited systems)
        • Hidden (shows only hidden systems)
      • System sorting priority takes into account the added statuses (Favorite/Hidden)

        • System owner (only for cloud systems)
        • User's email (only for cloud systems)
    • Users can now organize cameras and other resources into custom groups in the Resource Tree. To create a group, select two or more resources, right-click the selection, and click Create Group.
    • Video Preview Thumbnail (only for Windows and macOS) - displayed when hovering the mouse cursor over the timeline.
    • Archive Encryption - if enabled, the video archive will be encrypted and viewable only in the Desktop Client, Mobile Client, Web Admin, and Cloud Portal.
    • Audio Video Mapping:
      • The audio source from a camera or I/O module can be used in place of a microphone for another camera.
      • The 2-way audio button can be used on cameras without speakers to transmit the audio to another device that has a speaker.
    • 360° panorama images and videos that use equidistant projection can now be dewarped in the Desktop Client.
    • Using the Desktop Client, web pages which are not typically accessible on the client computer can now be proxied via the Server.
    • Restore the previous session - states of certain interface elements can be saved and restored after launching the Desktop Client.
    • Client Javascript API embedded in Web Pages to enable additional functionality:
      • Open/close cameras

      • The Recording tab better alerts the user when there are not enough licenses on the system.
      • A warning banner on the Analytics tab will be shown when recording is not enabled on the camera.
      • PTZ sensitivity can now be modified in the Expert tab.
      • The mount correction angle preview now shows a virtual rotation of the camera around its optical axis.

4.2.0.32516 Video Management System
PUBLISHED 18 Feb 2021

Release Notes:

  • This document reflects the differences between the official Hanwha 4.1 release (4.1.0.31948) and 4.2.
  • OPERATING SYSTEMS/PLATFORMS
    • Windows 7 compatibility support ended.
    • Windows 2008 R2 compatibility support ended.
    • Added support for MacOS 11 in the desktop client.
  • IMPROVEMENTS:
    • Added Catalan language.
    • The maximum value for pre-recording and post-recording actions in camera recording events is now 600 seconds.
    • Export dialog now uses short date and time format by default.
    • Update packages are now validated before installing to prevent malware injection.
    • Camera name and export time can now be overlayed onto the footage in the Export Dialog.
    • Camera name can now be overlayed when capturing a screenshot.
    • Exported videos in h.264 format can now be played back in Windows Media Player.
    • Server will re-initialize cameras when packets are not received from the secondary stream for more than 10 seconds.
    • The way that ROI data is overlaid on cameras was divided into two groups: "Show Region of Interest" and "Objects". “Show Region of Interest” makes ROI objects visible on cameras without object tracking support if the "Display on Video" option is enabled in Camera Settings > Plugins. “Show objects” makes ROI objects and camera analytics objects visible only on cameras that support object tracking.
    • Removed the limitation on Video Wall licenses that prevented more than one active direct control session at a time.

4.1.0.31195 Video Management System
PUBLISHED 23 Jun 2020

Release Notes:

  • BREAKING CHANGES
    • MacOS 10.11, 10.12, 10.13 support was dropped: Desktop Client will not work on those OS.
    • Nx1 end of life: no more builds for this platform provided.
    • Arecont Vision cameras now officially supported only via ONVIF. Models which were previously integrated via AV API could continue to maintain such compatibility, but it is not guaranteed. Users should test AV cameras compatibility with this release in a test environment before installing or updating this release on their operational system
  • NEW FEATURES
    • Push Notifications (requires mobile client v20.1 or later):
      • Rules can be created in VMS to send Push Notifications to mobile devices.
      • Users can receive push notifications from multiple systems and turn on/off notifications for specific systems.
      • In order to receive Push Notifications, users must be logged in to the Cloud in Mobile Client.
      • Users can create custom text for notifications in the Rules Engine via Desktop Client.
    • Health Monitoring - Available in the Server Web Admin interface and Cloud Portal, Health Monitoring provides administrators detailed information about a System’s health, including, but not limited to:
      • Alerts - automatically detected / identified problems with a System
      • System Info (# of servers, channels, storage located, users, and version)
      • Servers (storage detailed state, CPU usage, NICs state, hardware spec, etc.)
      • Cameras (online/offline state, resolution, fps, quality, firmware version, etc.)
      • Storage Locations (path, server, type, status, read/write rate, size, usage %)
      • Network Interfaces (name, server, state, IP address, I/O rates)
      • Desktop Clients connected to Servers.
    • New Embedded Browser - Desktop Client now uses a full-featured embedded Chromium browser (v.65.0.3325.230) to display web pages on layouts:
      • Download Files on Web-Page - the embedded browser in Desktop Client now supports downloading and saving files.
      • Cameras Web Page in Camera Settings Dialog - camera web pages can now be opened up in the Camera Settings dialog allowing users to configure/access camera web pages inside Desktop Client even when on a different Subnet (i.e., remote connections / outside the LAN / WAN). Server acts like an HTTP(s) proxy from cameras to Desktop Clients.
    • Video Wall Failover - 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".
    • Analytics Events Region of Interest (ROI) - Now it is possible to draw lines, boxes, polygons and more when configuring a video analytic from the Desktop Client (no need to go to the camera web page).
      • Currently supports Hanwha AI cameras using firmware version 1.41.xx or higher.
  • PLUGIN / METADATA SDK ENABLED FEATURES
    • Analytics Events Region of Interest (ROI):
      • Now it is possible to enable configuration of 3rd party video analytics and draw lines, boxes, polygons and more from the software (no need to go to the camera web page).
      • Minimum and maximum size of detected objects can be configured from the software.
      • ROI editor is available in the "Camera settings" dialog and visualized on the video.
      • This feature is available for developers using the Metadata SDK.
  • IMPROVEMENTS
    • Best Server Selection (while connecting to a Cloud-connected Multi-Server System):
      • In prior releases, Desktop Client would connect to a random available server via Cloud. Now Cloud connections are routed through the Server with the best uplink.
      • Added the ability for users to specify the preferred Server for connections. The configured Desktop Client will attempt to connect to the preferred Server first, and if it is not reachable, it will detect and connect via the Server with the best uplink.
    • 2-way Audio API - Allows third-party web clients to send audio (from client microphone) to and get audio from cameras.
    • Added Time Zone option for Virtual 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.
    • Server Side Motion Detection improved - 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)
    • Additional action parameter placeholders for the "Do HTTP request" action - 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:

    • Cameras Web Page in "Camera settings" - Web Page can be opened up for all camera vendors so users can configure/access camera web pages even from outside the network. Server acts like an HTTP(s) proxy from cameras to Desktop Clients.
    • Analytics Events Region of Interest (ROI) - now it is possible to draw lines, boxes, polygons and more when configuring a video analytic from the Desktop Client (no need to go to the camera web page).
      • Currently supports Hanwha AI cameras using firmware version 1.41.xx or higher.
  • PLUGIN / METADATA SDK ENABLED FEATURES
    • Analytics Events Region of Interest (ROI):
      • Now it is possible to enable configuration of 3rd party video analytics and draw lines, boxes, polygons and more from the software (no need to go to the camera web page).
      • Minimum and maximum size of detected objects can be configured from the software.
      • ROI editor is available in the "Camera settings" dialog and visualized on the video.
      • This feature is available for developers using the Metadata SDK.
  • IMPROVEMENTS
    • Best Server Selection (while connecting to the cloud multi-server system):
      • Previously, Desktop Client was trying to connect to a random available server via Cloud. Now it tries to connect to the server with the best uplink.
      • Added the ability to choose a specific server to connect to. Desktop Client tries to connect to the favorite server first and if it's not reachable, tries to connect to another one.
    • 2-way Audio API - Allows third-party web clients to send audio (from client microphone) to and get audio from cameras.
    • Added Time Zone option for virtual 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.
    • Server Side Motion Detection improved - False positives detection like turning on/off lights or switching camera day/night mode are now ignored.
    • Licenses:
      • Added information about the license provider and its support contact in "About" dialog.
      • Added information about remaining license deactivations on "License details" and "Confirmation" dialog.
    • Improved MacOS performance and introduced an experimental setting to limit frame rate and reduce CPU load (see Local Settings -> Advanced).
    • Improved cloud connectivity on certain network environments.
    • Added opportunity to pin timeline in fullscreen mode:
      • When the timeline is pinned, it's not hidden at all.
      • If the timeline was pinned when the user leaves fullscreen, it's getting pinned for all cameras on the layout when the user goes fullscreen next time.
    • Database backups are now divided by groups: created after system merge, after update, via API and scheduled database backup.
    • "Camera selection" dialog was optimized for a large systems
    • Added text search in the "Event log" dialog.
    • "Global Notification Settings" button was removed from the "Show Notification" action.
    • Added .mpegts files to the list of supported files in Desktop Client.
    • Now it is possible to disable port 80 on firewalls completely and use port 443 and HTTPS connection [not in beta].
