Improvements in Nx Witness™ v5.1



Added a possibility to choose the specific ONVIF profile for cameras (the “Expert” tab). The ONVIF profile list is determined ONLY when adding the camera to the server. If reconfigure ONVIF profiles afterwards (on the camera itself), they will not be reflected in the Desktop Client.
Min/Max archive retention period is in minutes, hours and days now.
Server connections to/disconnections from the Cloud are now logged in the Audit Trail.
Showreels no longer display a title bar on top with the camera name.
Added support for MPEG4 RTSP video streams.
Specific ports for viewing a Camera web page can be redefined on the “Expert” tab in Camera settings.
The "Do HTTP request" action now supports PATCH requests again (this was possible in 4.2, but due to API upgrade was not implemented in 5.0).
Motion DB was moved from the system storage to the archive storage.
Added a power management setting that allows computers to sleep while the Desktop Client is still open.
Scheduled database backup has been disabled by default on ARM devices.
Bookmarks and object attributes could be found only if a text matched the one from the beginning of the word. Now search can be performed by a text in the middle of the string (3 symbols minimum).
The "Use source camera" option is added to all camera-related actions.
The sound duration for the “Play Sound” and “Repeat Sound” actions was increased from 10 to 30 seconds.
The maximum value for LogicalID is set to 999999.
