DVR Examiner 2.7 is here! This new release primarily includes back-end updates and bug fixes, but there are two big changes you might notice within the program:
- A new way to visually review clips with Gallery View
- The ability to save the frame or entire clip to a specified location
Our newly introduced Gallery View offers an additional preview option for users reviewing the video evidence. Instead of watching the video, open the clip of interest in Gallery View to load thumbnails of every Iframe from the clip selected. With filesystems that support frame level timestamps, users will be able to change the amount of time between thumbnail frames (5, 30, or 60 seconds, or 5 minutes). If the filesystem does not support frame level timestamps, users will still be able to change the number of thumbnails by selecting an interval between frames (50, 300, 600, or 1200). Double click on any frame within Gallery View to open a preview for the clip, beginning at the selected frame.
This feature will make it easier for users to quickly review clips for moments of interest without watching each clip in its entirety. Simply open the Gallery View and scroll through the thumbnails until you see the moment of interest. Maybe it’s the appearance of the suspect or a car you need to ID. Once you pinpoint the moment, you can open the video clip for preview and watch what happens.
The other change to the front end of DVR Examiner is the ability to save a frame or an entire clip to a specified location. Before, save locations were automatically selected by the program. This change helps give users more control over their workflow, to help streamline the recovery of video evidence. To browse for a folder when saving, simply hold SHIFT when clicking a save option (current frame or entire clip). A browser box will open, allowing you to select your desired location.
In addition to these changes, we have added or updated the following filesystems: Blue_dc, 20D, 20D_Slave, 60D, 60D_Slave, NVR_dc, H2MB-dc.
