Version: 1.18.0 (latest)

Release notes

1.18.0 (14 Jun 2024)

Note: this version of OMNI Platform uses OMNI Agent v2.8.0, Image API v2.4.0 and Face SDK v3.21.0

  • Added event filtering. Now you can filter and send events to different endpoints based on specific cameras, agents, watchlists, or event types. Tailor your event management with precision.
  • Added webhook integration. Now events from OMNI Platform can be sent to external services using webhooks.
  • Added one-command auxiliary software installation. Simplify your setup with a single command to install all auxiliary software (Docker, Kubernetes, etc.) for your specified OS (Ubuntu, Astra Linux, and CentOS).
  • Updated Image API. Our latest version includes a more accurate Liveness algorithm to combat presentation attacks. This ensures enhanced security against threats like face masks, printed photos, and pre-recorded videos.
  • Added face concealment detection. OMNI Platform now detects and responds to face concealment attempts (e.g., turning away, using scarves, hats, glasses, or masks) in real-time. This feature aids in maintaining workplace discipline and strengthens identity verification processes.
  • Optimized event processing. Events can now be processed with disabled full-frame transmission (configured on the OMNI Agent side).
  • Enhanced face matching. Our face search (matcher-service) has been restructured into a standalone module, significantly reducing the time OMNI Platform takes to search for faces, and manage profiles.

Web interface

  • Added pages for Event filters and Endpoints.
  • Updated date format. The date format in all tables and object cards has been standardized for improved clarity and consistency.
  • The pages for triggers, notifications, and endpoints have been removed.

1.17.0 (19 Feb 2024)

Note: this version of OMNI Platform uses OMNI Agent v2.6.0, Image API v2.3.0 and Face SDK v3.19.0

What's New

Server

  • All facial attribute estimation operations (gender, age, emotions, Liveness, mask presence/absence, face landmarks, etc.) are now executed by the embedded Image API services. This shortens the release cycle and ensures a unified query standard for clients simultaneously utilizing OMNI Platform and Image API across different solutions.
  • OMNI Platform web interface has been separated into a distinct module. Now, it's possible to omit the installation of the web interface, saving disk space and administrator time.

Web interface

Web interface is updated to enhance administration and demonstration convenience.

  • Added contextual tooltips on hover over text in tables of profiles, watchlists, etc.
  • Added ability to create a trigger in the watchlist card.
  • Added profile counter in the watchlist card.
  • Added camera list in the agent card.
  • Counter of profiles added to watchlists is removed from the admin panel.

Bug Fixes

1.16.0 (08 Dec 2023)

Note: this version of OMNI Platform uses OMNI Agent v2.4.1+, Image API v2.1.0 and Face SDK v3.19.0

What's New

Event service

  • Added filtration by profile ID (dataIdentificationDataProfileId:exact) in Event Service API.
  • Added the ability to put the watchlist ID or camera ID to scope_id when connecting via a web socket. Now, when providing event service to different customers/services, the transferred results can be distinguished by 4 parameters: workspace, watchlist, agent, camera.
  • Added new event types (HAR, ROI, Crossing) and the ability to specify them when connecting via web socket. The websocket becomes a single point for receiving all types of detections and identifications.
  • Added the activityId output field in the get events request in the Event Service API. This provides a connection between the event and the activity that generated it and allows you to receive additional information that is only available in activities: track duration, attention, gender, age, emotions, related events.
  • Added the event_max_body_size parameter, which allows you to adjust the size of incoming events if the project involves high-resolution cameras, and full frames do not pass the standard size threshold.
  • Added MinIO object storage to store event service images. This speeds up the recording of events from a large number of cameras and allows you to store heavy objects separately from the main database.

Strengthened data protection and enhanced security

  • Websocket authentication is now performed by endpoint_id rather than by OMNI Platform access token.
  • Added the ability to specify an id when creating a camera, so as not to publish the login/password of the rtsp stream.
  • Added a function to reset OMNI Platform access token in the Django admin panel in case the system administrator changes, or if the old token is compromised.

Added periodic cleaning of activities and events

  • Parameters activity_handler_period, event_handler_period to set the cleaning frequency (in seconds).
  • Parameters retention_activities_count, retention_events_count to adjust the quantity. By determining the average size (in bytes) of a single event/activity, you can configure cleaning to maintain adequate server disk space.

Web interface

  • The main page of the web interface displays new status indicators for the system administrator: number of events, frequency of data cleaning, latest profiles in the database, etc.
  • Added a link to the GraphiQL of event service.
  • The Settings page has been removed, its subpages have been placed in a general list in the navigation panel.
  • The sidebar on the right side of each page has been removed, filters and entity controls on pages have been moved to the page headers.
  • Filters with a string value now return the result while the string is being typed, and not based on a complete match.
  • Added Event and Web sockets pages to reduce costs and customer time spent on learning how to use and test OMNI Platform.
  • Image search has been added to profile filters.
  • Image search has been added to activity filters. This will allow you to show a retrospective search for a person who was not yet in the search lists when he came into the camera's field of view.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an bug: if you created a profile and added it to a watchlist in a profile creation card, such a profile couldn't be added to the watchlist search index.

1.14.0 (11 Aug 2023)

Note: this version of OMNI Platform uses OMNI Agent v2.3.1 and Face SDK v3.18.0

What’s New

Server

  • Updated installation kit and installation method. Now it takes less time to fill in the configuration parameters to install OMNI Platform.
  • Deployment and configuration of the cluster is allocated to the smc module (Self Managed Cluster). The number of dependencies has been reduced, the administrator's work path during setup has become clearer and more consistent.
  • Istallation is separated into platform and image-api modules. Now the installation is performed through a single entry point. Installation and deployment order is detailed to understandable separable steps. A separate module is easier to maintain in subsequent releases, which speeds up the process of delivering new values to customers.
  • Added support to all image-api, platform's processing and quality deployments for:
    • Horizontal Pod Autoscaler — allows you to automatically scale deployments, which ensures efficient utilization of the cluster resource
    • NodeSelector — allows you to select the nodes on which deployments will be installed. That saves resources by redistributing more load demanding services to more productive nodes
  • Added ingress proxy support to all image-api deployments. This feature allows you to use Image API services in OMNI Platform.
  • Added support for deploying the solution in Amazon EKS. This feature allows you to automatically scale ImageAPI services in the Amazon cloud. This provides efficient utilization of hardware resources and reduces costs for solutions that have a floating (not constant) load from end customers/services.
  • Added aws (Amazon Web Services) module to configure an environment for deploying the platform in AWS. In addition to autoscaling of applications for the current load on the service, improvements have been added that optimize the work of the administrator:
    • Simplified process of scaling for a certain load
    • High availability of the database (redundancy, fault tolerance, recoverability)
    • Cloud watch (the ability to use built-in AWS tools for logging and monitoring)
  • When creating profiles, it became possible to adjust the parameters of the Image API configuration objects, which allows you to flexibly configure the system for specific use cases.
  • A series of load and quality tests were carried out, as a result of which the stability and fault tolerance of the platform and agent were significantly increased, the memory leaks were eliminated.
  • Added the ability to use an external database. This allows you to use more reliable data backup tools on a single machine.
  • Removed 'platform' prefix from domain when deploying.
  • Updated score calculation formula in v12 recognition modules. This feature provides an easier-to-understand interpretation of the face comparison result.

Bug Fixes

Server

  • After updating OMNI Platform, the workspace went into the "inactive" status, due to which any API-requests to change data became unavailable.
  • Fixed a number of interface errors.
