In addition, several new updates, such as an internal memory tracking mechanism, an enhanced central failure messaging and new masking feature, improve the operability of video management. To further integrate Vicon’s recent merger with IQinVision, all IQinVision cameras will now be supported by the ViconNet system.

New Features and Updates Include:
- Recording Management: The addition of a new setup screen significantly simplifies the way recording is configured on NVRs and DVRs. A simple pick-list is offered to select cameras, microphones, and a choice of three of recording schedules. This new feature replaces most recording macros as well as the auto-record setup screen on Kollector DVRs.
- Support IQinVision Cameras as Vicon: The open standard screen was updated to identify connected IQinVision cameras as Vicon and no longer require adding a 3rd party license.
- Smart Memory Watch Dog: A new smart process monitors for irregular Windows memory management and initiates an application restart to clear the memory and avoid the issue from escalating. This new alert protects the system from memory related freezing and recording gaps.
- New High Resolution Display in VMDC: RX monitors provide clearer and sharper images utilizing new display algorithm. This new display also accommodates better performance with data rates. In addition, a VMS masking feature and quick search line improves operability and navigation.
- Improved Central Failure Notification: The CFN messaging mechanism has been updated for enhanced usability by eliminating duplicate messaging, adding pop-up by default messages, and improved CFN email messaging.
- Masking Secure for Archives: An updated archive player offers a VMS-based masking feature that is protected when archived and will not play if the masking file is missing or corrupted.
