Current server version 1.0.0.292

- The following update applies only to RT 4 systems based on BT878 chipset. Since this version is released the extension board is not necessary if you use 4 cameras. The video inputs 1,2,3,4 are assigned to 1,2,3,4 camera views (in the previous versions the cameras had to be connected to video inputs 1,3,5 and 7 and you had to use the extension board). This update enables you to use next 4 video inputs and capture 30 or 25 fps per each camera.

8/29/2003

Current server version 1.0.0.285

- HTTP server added; this feature will enable you to watch the video using regular web browser. You can choose from two different modes:
1) full version with a multiserver connection feature written in JAVA (multiserver feature means that you are able to connect to more than one server using the same desktop) You can freely resize the cameras' windows and move the windows. The example of working JAVA client you can see at our demo server : http://demo.alnetsystems.com/.
2) one camera version web client written in JAVA. It is recommended to place this applet somewhere on your website. The example of this particular applet is here : http://demo.alnetsystems.com/single.htm
These both programs are written in JAVA as the JAVA applets. They are required to be configured by setting parameters in HTML pages. Now, after installing the software the subfolder HTTP is created. You will find 4 files there: kamery.jar, kamerys.jar, index.htm, Single.htm. If you enable the HTTP server in Network Settings of the VDR-S the software will forward all request to port 80 (the default http port). The web browser will ask for a file and will receive the index.htm by default. All you have to do is to edit the index.htm and/or single.htm files and change default parameters for these applets. The parameters you have to change are as follow (you change the VALUE field in the quotation marks:
<PARAM NAME = "boxmessage" VALUE ="Loading Please Wait..."> (information before applet is loaded)
<param name="Server0Name" value="AL-NET demo server"> (description of the server)
<param name="Server0Address" value="demo.alnetsystems.com"> (IP address or DNS name)
<param name="Server0Port" value="9000"> (port of the server)
<param name="Server0Login" value="demo"> (login of the user that has the access to the server)
<param name="Server0Password" value="demo"> (password)
The applets will work if you have JAVA RUNTIME ENVIRONMENT (JRE2) installed. If you do not have it installed the applet will detect this and will try to download the JRE2 from Sun Microsystems website. You have to let it do this or install it from another source.
-The passwords and user rights are coded.

The manufacturer of the dongles had released new driver. We decided to implement the new dongle driver because it includes some major changes. In the folder the VDR-S server was installed you have to replace the file: novex32.dll. You have to install new driver from: drivers.zip. It is necessary in order new VDR-S applications to work correctly. Future releases of installs and updates will have alredy new driver built in, so the described operation is necessary only if you do the vdr-s.exe file replacement.

On some computers with Windows 2000 if no joystick was present and the joystick option was activated by default that could cause unpredictable effects. We added this button to prevent you from that. Now, if you do not have joystick connected, go to Dome settings and click to deactivate joystick.
- After logging out, the log in form's fields are empty. In previous versions the login field contained the last user that logged in.

Current server version 1.0.0.245

- dynamic Domain Name Service (D.N.S.); the VDRS does not require you to have a static IP address (which can add to the cost of your internet connection ). If your ISP offers dynamic IPs only , you can register for free your own subdomain, by entering your desired server name in the DNS registration box. Every time you start up your server, it will automatically register/update its dynamic IP address with our vdr-s.com domain name server. This will enable your clients to access your server at any time by simply entering your servername.vdr-s.com in the address box. Regardless of any change to your assigned IP address. This process only involves your initial input the first time you register your dynamic IP with us. The rest is done automatically by Alnet VDRS and our dedicated VDR-S.com server.
- program interface changed
- while installing the software you have to choose TV system compatible with your cameras - NTSC or PAL

Current server version 1.0.0.236

- In order to enhance the possibilities and functionality of VDR-S system we had to modify the way of the program first run. You will have to enter new 10 digit serial number. It must be entered only once as the program starts for the first time.
- You will also have to enter this number if you are updating your version if older than 1.0.0.236 but to do this you have to obtain new serial number. It can be done by using the conversion tool : http://www.alnetsystems.com/serialus. Your old 24 chars serial number should be found on the CDROM's box and in the text file that accompanies the program installer file.
- If there was any problems with the conversion or you couldn't find the old serial number you should contact us and give the 4 digits program license number that is on the dongle:
- Since this day install versions of the program are available on the server to download
- We had released program version for Philip's chipset video capture boards.

3/18/2003

Current server version 1.0.0.232

- there is only one file to replace for all versions of VDR-S now : VDR-S.exe. That makes it easy to update to the new program version.
- added option for selecting hardware acceleration support with the use of DirectX or selecting software emulation. The setting is located in the Camera settings window. We recommend setting this option to hardware acceleration because the picture has better quality then. If you do not see any picture after turning on the server the most probably your computer do not support hardware acceleration and you have to set this option to software emulation or replace the video graphic card.
- we have also only one update file now : VDRS_UPDATE.exe.
