Hanwha Techwin America unveils advanced Wisenet WAVE 4.0 VMS solution


Hanwha Techwin America will soon announce availability for Wisenet WAVE 4.0, the next version of their VMS (Video Management System) designed to support the advanced features and license-free onboard video analytics that are unique to Hanwha cameras.

Available from Hanwha’s network of authorised distributors, Wisenet WAVE 4.0 is ideally suited to meet the needs of customers looking for a reasonably priced and easy to use end-to-end video surveillance solution. WAVE gives users the ability to create tailored layouts for the way they want to use their Wisenet video surveillance solutions. Communication with WAVE is via Hanwha’s native unified API for maximum compatibility and efficiency.
New analytics support includes:
• Queue Management (Queue-meter) – for retail queue management. Users can set up to three rectangular regions to monitor three lines. If a queue gets backed up, an event can be triggered to alert the end-user to assess and take action.
• Shock Detection – Introduced in the Wisenet X series PLUS line of cameras, gyro sensors can detect when a camera is shaking or enduring physical shock. This can trigger an alarm or custom event in WAVE 4.0.
• Temperature change detection from thermal cameras – When working with the recently released Wisenet thermal cameras, change in temperature above or below a threshold can trigger an alarm in WAVE.

For remote access, a new WAVE mobile app version 19.3 features smart motion search from within the mobile client. Users simply press and drag on a region from within the camera’s field of view and motion slices pop up in the timeline showing any motion that occurred within that region within any time period.

In WAVE 4.0, the system architecture has been revamped to ensure every moment is captured and recorded with minimum downtime while providing increased scalability. The previous 50 server limit has been doubled to support up to 100 servers in a unified site (each server can support 128 camera streams). Multi-server failover is built into the software and is ready to be activated with only a few clicks, and without requiring any extra failover licenses.
