VAM2发布说明

v2.4.2

2020年10月12日
Weiss AG团队很自豪地宣布,VAM2在2.4.2版本发布。
我们一直与产品经理、研究人员和设计人员紧密合作,打造我们认为能为用户提供最大价值的VAM2。
在Weiss AG,我们不断整合新的模块和功能,以帮助客户提升项目。
目前,我们有超过200个新功能和模块在我们的愿望清单上,需要优先考虑。因此,我们需要您的意见,现实世界的用户。将您的意见和建议发布在 VAM2社区 是高度赞赏的。
在这个版本中,除了bug修复和语言更新,我们还实现了以下功能。

360°多排旋转查看器和图像导入器。

VAM2现在支持多行360°图像集。基于图像编号结构,VAM2将图像集合并到一个档案中,适合在旋转查看器中以高分辨率快速显示。这些单独的图像集也可以下载为.zip档案。 的机器输出中使用的图像描述,如从 光子机器人 实现了直接导入。
这个很酷的功能是,你不需要使用整个旋转视图集。如果你只想使用一些选定的视图(例如,从正面、背面、顶部、底部和对角线拍摄的美图),上传相关图片即可。这丝毫不影响浏览者的操作。

具有高级用户权限的多项目发布模块

由于我们使用的是增量更新,大规模项目中的微小变化可以在几分之一秒内发布。
组织和管理已发布项目的程序只需一个发布模块。一旦设置好,用户可以通过点击按钮发布和更新任何数量的项目。

新的数据库引擎,显著加快项目的初始打开速度。

新的数据库引擎有不同的指示系统。对于一个资产量严重的项目,我们在后台第一次打开编辑时,可以实现加载速度高达20倍的显著提升。

新的上传模块现在支持部分文件上传

在以前的版本中,当暂时失去网络连接时,每一个没有完全上传的文件都必须从头开始重新上传。 现在,VAM2自动重新连接,并从中断点继续上传。

受保护内容的版权标志功能

VAM2用户始终使用受版权保护的数据工作。特别是在文化遗产和艺术相关的项目中,内容的版权类型必须是显性的,以防止内容被虚假发布。 版权标识系统允许管理员将各个命名结构定义为与其他系统和工作流程直接兼容使用。

项目创建者永久删除项目

VAM2的一个基本思想是,对资产或项目的 "删除 "命令不应该从数据库中删除数据,而只应该使其不可见。这个程序保证了管理员可以在任何时候恢复被假删除的数据。 只有VAM2管理员才有可能永久删除以释放存储空间。根据要求,我们加强了用户权限管理,赋予编辑人员永久删除项目的权利。

加强用户管理

我们整合了定义上传数据限制和单个用户可用的处理槽数的可能性。 根据标准,VAM2按照先到先得的原则分配上传和处理时段。 当上传和处理时间是协作组中的限制因素时,可以为单个用户优先考虑负载均衡,以加快特定项目的速度。

用户上传数据统计和上传大小总结

列表视图,包括所有分配的用户、创建日期和项目大小,并具有搜索功能。

向外部存储设备和云存储进行增量备份。

在外部存储设备上的增量备份必须手动和单独设置,这对有经验的系统管理员来说也是非常苛刻的。 现在,VAM2administrator只需简单的1步,就可以将事件触发的增量备份设置到NAS或云存储空间等外部存储设备上。

最新的浏览器通信技术,实现更高的安全性和性能。

在Weiss AG,我们不断地检查浏览器更新及其对VAM2的影响。我们正式支持Chrome、Firefox和Edge,并实施最新的技术更新,以确保安全和性能。
版本说明1

新的帮助和支持部分,包括修订的用户手册和视频教程。

多语言支持和联系渠道

由于我们的客户群非常国际化,VAM2在线文档现在有11种主要语言版本。

These settings can also be predefined in the back-end and the asset will show up with the pre-defined settings, but can still be changed in the published tour window. So there is no need to manipulate the original, simply upload and change the look on the fly.
      ↳ No need to correct the original asset before uploading.
