Release notes 14.3

With the 14.3 released, Panasonic Cameramanager launched CLVR and the Cameramanager Cloud Camera. CLVR, pronounced 'clever' is world's first affordable, on-demand and zero-config cloud-based video analytics service. Available with the Cameramanager Cloud Camera, CLVR helps businesses to optimize their video surveillance with intelligent alarming and storage via the cloud.

Next to CLVR and the Cameramanager Cloud Camera, the 14.3 release also included bug fixes and an improved and more stable version of the installer.

Motion, sound and PIR detection on the Cameramanager Cloud Camera

The Cameramanager Cloud Camera supports motion (via CLVR), sound and PIR detection. The manner in which the camera detects, depends on the detection areas and sensitivities that are used.

To set the detection areas and sensitivities, go to:

  1. Settings
  2. Cameras
  3. Your Cameramanager Cloud Camera
  4. Detection Settings


Motion Detection 

With the Cameramanager Cloud Camera we’ve introduced a new type of motion area, the motion grid. After adding a new camera, the entire camera image will be set as a motion area. Motion areas are shown in green, such as illustrated in figure 1

Figure 1: a motion area over the entire camera image

You can make changes to this motion area by moving your mouse over the camera image (a grid will appear) and start clicking or dragging the cells to toggle them:


Figure 2: toggle cells to change a motion area


You can also set the sensitivity of the selected area with the drop-down menu underneath the motion area:


A higher value means that the individual pixels will be more sensitive to motion of the image.

Minimum amount of movement

A higher value here means that the area will sooner been seen as having motion, based on the amount of pixels that have registered motion.


Multiple motion areas

You can add multiple motion areas, to a camera image. Click on ‘add new motion area’ and move your mouse over the camera image (a grid will appear) and start clicking or dragging the cells to toggle them:

Infrared detection

Infrared detection will work similarly to other cameras.


Sound detection

Sound detection will work similarly to other cameras.



CLVR is a cloud-based and real-time object detection feature in the Cameramanager application. It uses a form of motion detection which significantly increases the proportion of relevant notifications a user will receive, by only sending alerts when a human or object is detected. For example, when a customer enters a store or when a car enters a car park. With CLVR a user doesn’t receive irrelevant notifications.


The current version of CLVR introduces single frame analysis for detecting objects in an area of interest. This means that every time the camera detects motion, the image is analyzed. CLVR is only available with a Business and Professional plan


CLVR settings

Using CLVR is as simple as drawing an area where CLVR needs to detect and scheduling when CLVR needs to detect. An example of the CLVR configuration screen can be found in figure 4.


Figure 4. The CLVR configuration screen.


When CLVR detects motion, it is marked as a ‘CLVR event’ in the ‘Footage’ menu. In the bottom-right corner select ‘CLVR events’, to only see the motion detection done with CLVR.

 Figure 5. Relevant events can be found when viewing your footage. This make searching the video easy and quick.


When CLVR detects motion, it immediately sends an email with a snapshot of what has been detected. An example email can be found in figure 6.

Improved and more stable version of the installer


Bit rate control

With the bit rate control you can easily restrict the amount of bandwidth used by any of your cameras. If you have many devices on your network, or you simply do not have a lot of bandwidth to begin with, you can restrict your camera bandwidth between ⅛ and 2 Mb/s. You can find the bandwidth control in your footage settings of the camera settings in the application.
