Flussonic Watcher 23.06

What’s new in Flussonic Watcher 23.06

We are thrilled to announce the release of Flussonic Watcher 23.06! This version brings a host of exciting new features and improvements, making Watcher fully independent from infrastructure knowledge, the Media Server launcher, and streamer management. It is now fully optimized for Kubernetes, supports HEVC in the Watcher UI, offers enhanced license plate recognition capabilities, and provides improved DVR configuration.

  • #29508 (new) Implemented operation of Iris with HAL module for cameras based on FH8852v200+GS2063 chipset.
  • #30674 (new) Iris made independent from ip and killall functions of BusyBox to avoid problems when integrating the firmware with cameras having custom rootfs builds.
  • #30726 (new) Watcher now doesn’t keep streamers anymore. This infrastructure knowledge is stored in Central
  • #30391 (fixed) Fixed HTTP 500 errors when no statistics is received from Agents. Such situations are now processed correctly.
