Migration without resettlement
With this unique Camtrace migration procedure, you can change operating system version without reinstalling the system. Everything happens as if you were doing a simple update which, in this case, will be more cumbersome and will require a few precautions. Of course to carry out this migration you must start from a Linux version of CamTrace. The details of the procedure are explained in download / software.
Upgrading to a recent version of the OS gives you several advantages in terms of monitoring and stability of your installation: support for recent peripherals and hardware, the possibility of changing your hardware for a more recent one, access to higher versions of the video application. At CamTrace we do everything we can to avoid obsolescence of your system.
CamTrace version numbering reminder
As CamTrace regulars know, the first digit in the CamTrace version numbering corresponds to the version of the operating system being used.
For example, V220.127.116.11 is based on Linux 16.04 LTS.
All versions V7.14.x.x and 7.13.x.x are based on Linux 14.04 LTS
LTS stands for Long Term Support, which refers to stabilised versions of Linux (Xubuntu) that are subject to a support programme of at least 5 years.
All versions 6 and earlier of CamTrace (from 2 to 6) are based on the 32-bit FreeBSD OS. CamTrace has been upgraded to 64-bit Linux with the “Nova” name since version 18.104.22.168.
NOVA 13, NOVA 14, and soon NOVA 15 designate the major versions of the video application, and correspond to the second number separated by a dot.
