1 DIVAR AN 3000/5000 firmware version 2.3.1 (date 2015-10-23)
File name: DVR.V2.3.1.R.20151023.bin
This release includes the following new features/improvement:
General improvements:
-
To ensure 100% reliable and viewable (recording of) video, we have added a detection
mechanism to detect bad camera signals which might give a problem displaying the video.
This feature will help the customer to identify weak signals and take appropriate actions to
resolve the problem. The administrator can disable this warning mechanism at any time in
the system events menu located under the advanced settings tab.
When a bad signal is detected, an error message will be shown in the top left of the
screen indicating: "Error displaying camera X, bad signal".
When this message is shown:
o Check the camera connections and replace/tighten the connections if necessary.
Make sure no ground loops are present
o Check the camera video signal and replace the camera if necessary
Added a setting to force a system to NTSC, PAL or auto-detect (default) to prevent the
-
system from accidently switching to a different mode in case of a bad camera signal.
HTTPS/SSL has been implemented in the unit to make the communication more secure and
-
to prevent 'man in the middle' attacks.
A menu item has been added to the quick menu to directly logout a unit
-
An option has been added to show/hide the timeline selection in playback
-
A new option has been added to completely covert cameras. This option can hide all
-
camera names, recording / alarm icons, etc. and will only show a black frame. This option
works together with the live viewing rights of a camera.
The account order of the login window can now be configured in the user account
-
configuration page.
New features are now also translated in different languages supported by this device
-
Improved snapshot functionality:
It is now possible to easily make snapshots from all cameos:
-
o Single live view and instant playback by selecting the snapshot button in the cameo
