Major Fixes

  • Corrected an IXP issue that caused the camera to oscillate between day and night settings when used with low wattage IR illuminators.
  • Corrected an issue with the GetAllCurrentConfiguration call in the IMP319-1 camera that prevented default DSCP, bit rate, and GOP values from appearing in setting options.
  • Corrected an issue in Endura Utilities that prevented the ntpAddress parameter from being returned after resetting to factory defaults.
  • Corrected an issue in IMP219-1 and IMP519-ER cameras that prevented changes made to motion detection region parameters through the user interface from being reflected in the MotionDetection service or Endura.
  • Corrected an issue that prevented the SNMP service from responding after the camera restarted.
  • Authentication is no longer required for an ONVIF query for camera date and time.
  • Corrected an issue causing differences between motion detection boundaries drawn in Endura and the camera’s Web interface.
  • Corrected an issue that allowed changes to video settings from Lenel OnGuard using invalid credentials after setting the camera to Closed Authentication.
  • Corrected a issue that prevented Motion Detection changes made in the Web UI from propagating to Endura when integrated with Genetec applications.
  • Corrected an issue that caused a delay in live video call-up of 10 seconds or more when the camera was set to 1 IPS and integrated with Lenel products.
  • Corrected an issue that prevented event subscription when the camera was set to “Closed Authentication” through Web GUI in Genetec integrations.
  • Corrected an issue that prevented users from setting a bitrate above 2500 kbit/second in Lenel integrations.
  • Corrected an issue that prevented changes to motion detection regions made through the MotionDetection or Endura from being properly reflected through the camera interface.
  • Corrected an issue that prevented the camera from displaying video when a user attempted to view live video too quickly after changing video settings.
  • Corrected an issue that caused differences between URLs used for CGI calls from Sarix Professional Series cameras and other, Lenel-certified Sarix cameras.
  • Corrected the GetMDRegion response to more closely match responses from other Sarix cameras. Note that, for Sarix Professional Series cameras, ClearMDRegions clears the mask but does not empty the region; region parameters will remain after using ClearMDRegions.
  • Corrected an issue preventing a PelcoConfiguration.GetConfiguration call from returning the ntpAddress parameter following a factory reset.
