External data storage is now supported, allowing use of DVR and NVR video archives, as well as IP cameras with recording to flash memory and NAS. The Active Archiving module, designed to copy archives from a video server to dedicated drives, can now migrate audio synchronously recorded with video. Network attached storage can now be used for archive space. A convenient Axxon Player has been introduced for viewing video archives independently of the Axxon Intellect PSIM platform. Future versions of Axxon Player will add functionality for converting Axxon Intellect Enterprise archives to common video formats.
Worthy of separate mention is integration of fisheye cameras from Sentry360 and Vivotek, as well as panomorph lenses from ImmerVision. Integration of libraries into Intellect allows obtaining panoramic imagery from cameras and implementing virtual PTZ support.
The RTSP server allows transmitting a video stream from the Intellect system in RTSP format and viewing it on a remote client through any player that supports the RTSP protocol, such as the open-source VLC application.
Thanks to support for the H.264 SVC codec, users can downsample and scale video streams without decompression. This allows optimizing the hardware and network footprint when transmitting video to clients.
Another unique feature is integrated audio analytics from Audio Analytic. Intellect now has detection tools for audio as well as video. The audio detection tools are sensitive to the sounds produced by broken glass and car alarms.
