SecurOS 8.5 Released

ISS is excited to announce the official release of SecurOS 8.5. Please contact your local ISS branch to request the software downloads.

The main new features of the release include:

Media Client – Audio Support.

  • Audio support for Microphones associated with Cameras and independent Microphones has been implemented.
  • Activate the Microphone in the Media Client to start listening to audio from an independent Microphone.
  • Activate Camera to start listening to audio from its associated Microphone.
  • It is possible to listen to live audio or use audio archive playback. Use live/archive button in the microphone’s cell to switch an independent Microphone to archive/live mode. Switch the Camera to archive mode to listen to archive records from a Camera associated Microphone.
  • To work with audio-archive playback use the Media Client Timeline. Microphones associated to Cameras are not displayed in the Timeline because their recordings match the camera’s video archive.
