The menu Database or the toolbar offer three options for deleting recordings
shown in the timeline:
The whole range to be seen in the timeline will be deleted (only possible
when STOP is set).
Only the range before a point of time clicked in the timeline will be
Only a marked range will be deleted.
Right next to the timeline you have the possibility of specifying a time (date and
time) and starting a database scan. SISTORE MX then shows from the selected
camera the image which is the closed to the specified time.
The format of the database has changed. The advantages of the new format: a 40% smaller database
and therefore less main memory requirement. Better time resolution of events for synchronization of
sound and vision.
With the first start, the database of the old format is automatically converted into the new format.
Subsequently, an old version of SISTORE MX can no longer read the database and therefore cannot
play back any recordings.
With inserted logbook, the corresponding event is marked for each displayed
image (see Section 17.11: Logbook). This enables you to establish which entry of
the logbook belongs to the displayed image. If, on the other hand, you select an
entry in the logbook, the system shows from the selected camera the first image
that belongs to the selected event.
A central new function from V2.40 on is the possibility of searching for frame
changes in stored recordings.
The search relates to the marked camera with multi-channel reproduction and to
the displayed camera with single camera reproduction.
Open the Search dialog box using the View -> Intelligent search menu or the
in the toolbar.
A small picture of the active camera is displayed. Using the mouse and the draw
functions known from the configuration of motion detection, the user can now draw
a mask. "Rectangle" and "polygon" are available as draw functions. In addition,
there is a button for deleting the mask.
If no mask is defined, the complete frame is called up for the search.
