This blog post was initially published using Ava's former video security product names. 

July is well upon us, which means it’s time for a new product version release. Stay up to date on what’s new in the Ava Aware video management system (formerly Vaion vcore), from the ability to stream Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) and Real Time Streaming Protocol over SSL (RTSPS) to external systems to refining person searches, by choosing between male and female. Let’s get to it.

View RTSP and RTSPS streams

We know how important it is for customers to ensure continuity of their existing systems and devices when they adopt new, smarter security solutions. Strengthening our position as an open video surveillance system, we make it possible for you to pull either live streams or historical video from Aware using either RTSP or RTSPS (Real Time Streaming Protocol over TLS/SSL).

Security managers and administrators can now stream video to external viewers or integrate Aware with existing monitoring and PSIM solutions. In addition, security is built-in, with control over who can stream, and what they can stream. Learn more about how to configure your Aware deployment to allow RTSP streams from our documentation portal.

Refine searching by person

We’re committed to making searching more accurate, rapid, and efficient, so we’ve added gender as a criterion for person searching. Watch how fast it is to get relevant footage by choosing Female or Male in your Person search parameters.

Other features in our latest release include:

  • the ability to add multiple servers in a server group;
  • the ability to configure dewarp settings for 3rd-party panoramic cameras;
  • the ability to download your Dome or 360 device log files from within Aware
  • going to full-screen from by double-clicking
