New Features and Operational Changes

Support multicast transmission

Once the HDExpress is updated to this firmware, the multicast network setting will be operational allowing setting the DVR to Multicast video stream. This is primarily meant for situations where the maximum number of video stream from the DVR when used in Unicast mode is being exceeded.

 

Support Vicon serial PTZ protocol

For Vicon analog PTZ cameras, this version now support the RS422/485 Vicon protocol.

When using the Vicon RS485 based protocol it is required to add two specific presets which will be used for navigating the camera OSD setup screens.

Preset 211 will send (when called) an Auto Pan command (instead of a dedicated AP button)

Preset 212 will send (when called) an Auto Iris command (instead of a dedicated AI button)
