Exclusive Feature: Seamless Counting

In the event of disconnection with a VAST server via network fail, server failure, etc. The seamless counting function retains the integrity of counting data and automatically retrieves data fragments once the network connection is restored. The data generated during the time of network failure will be synchronized with that on the VAST server.

VIVOTEK VMS Solution Update

Older versions required a dongle to run, thus it was not possible to replace the ST7501. The new version is equipped to support the all-new software license. The default software provides for free 32 channel usage for users. If required by the user, it is easy to expand the number of camera channels available.

VAST License Protection Mechanisms

The hardware license is verified via a dongle, but the software license is verified by identifying unique characteristics of the user’s PC. Its file contains data on the basic configuration (Motherboard, CPU Processor, Graphics Card, RAM and Network Card) of all servers in order to ensure efficiency. If the user changes any three of these basic hardware components, the software license will become invalid.

VAST License Export & Import

The software license further provides two license export and import solutions for users. One is a hierarchical structure for batch licenses, and the other is single structure for single licenses. Using batch licenses will save users more operation time.
1. Hierarchical Structure: Supports batch export & import licenses to save on operation time.
2. Single Structure: Supports export & import of single license.
