In the latest release of DVR Examiner – 2.6 – the team focused on performance, and recovery capabilities. These performance updates improve the vast majority of our filesystems, especially in situations where a large number of clips are found during the scan. Early results indicate scans complete up to 28% faster in 2.6 than they did in 2.5. We have also made improvements to the application startup process to decrease load time.
In addition, we added a few other features and capabilities:
We have added the ability for you to export subtitle files with the frame level timestamps for each clip. This feature is available on any filesystems where DVR Examiner supports frame level timestamps and open video exports. Subtitle files export as .srt files with the exact same name as the corresponding .avi file. Players such as Windows Media Player and VLC Media Player automatically detect the .srt file and play it as a layer over the .avi file. You can now get critical date/time metadata (including adjusted timestamps) outside of DVR Examiner.
We have added the capability to preview and export h.265 video formats. The newly supported RSF_265_NS_ES is our first filesystem to utilize this capability and we have more filesystems supporting this feature planned. If you have encountered any systems utilizing h.265, please let us know and we can work to get them added as well.
In another update, users are now able to filter clips based on a specific time of day with a new checkbox under the “Start” and “End” time filters on the Clip Tab in DVR Examiner. This new Time of Day filter option allows users to select a specific range of time within a day and filter for any clips within that range. For example, say you want to filter clips that recorded during normal business hours between January 1, 2019, and January 10, 2019. In this example, we would enable the “Time of Day” Filter and then select 2019-01-01 09:00:00 as the start date/time and 2019-01-10 17:00:00 as the end date/time. When the filter is applied, DVR Examiner returns only the clips that were recorded each day between 9 AM and 5 PM between January 1, 2019, and January 10, 2019.
Additionally we added 3 new filesystems including: JuNek (one of our most commonly requested systems), AVS_264_256 – with support for inaccessible recovery, and RSF_265_NS_ES – our first system supporting h.265 video.
