Release Bulletins

Onsight Fall 2021 Release

Onsight Fall 2021 release includes Onsight platform and client improvements.

Release Date: November 29, 2021

Scheduled Anonymization

For customers who require data anonymization to meet privacy regulations, Librestream will enable Scheduled Anonymization. When Scheduled Anonymization is enabled, active users will automatically have their Personal Identifiable Information (PII) anonymized based on the Personal Data Retention Period (12 or 18 months). The username, email address and other PII will no longer be available for display in reports and call statistics. An anonymized pseudonym will be inserted in its place to prevent identification of the user and anonymized data for active users will be grouped into monthly segments.

Remote Video Privacy – option to require consent for remote video sharing requests

‘Require consent for remote video sharing requests’ gives customers greater control over video sharing during an Onsight call. When enabled, users must provide consent before a remote participant can view video from their camera. Video privacy is enhanced at sensitive locations by requiring users to provide consent before sharing video.

Client Policy – option to restrict ability to add manual contacts

A new option to decide whether users can add external contacts manually provides additional access control. When disabled, users can only select and add contacts from the Global directory.

Client Policy – option to select guest invite user mode

When enabled, users can choose the Onsight Connect experience for their guests by setting the user mode to either Expert or Field within the guest invite. This option provides users with the ability to match the experience to the guest user.

China Android App Deployment/Redirection

Customers who have users in China or send Guest invites (SMS or email) to users in China can automatically direct them to the download location for Android, iOS and Windows in China. The Windows download is hosted on Librestream servers in China, the Android app is available from multiple China-based app stores, and iOS continues to be available from the App Store in China. By request, customers also have the option of using TeamLink servers in China for their China-based users to optimize call routing.

Note: for the Android stores, the Trademark™ in China is Librestream Onsight (not Librestream Onsight Connect). This App deployment is currently not available for custom branded applications.

 

Fall 2021 Release Notes

Onsight Summer 2021 Release

Onsight Summer 2021 release includes Onsight platform and client improvements.

Data Anonymization

When requested, Librestream can enable ‘Data Anonymization’ for your domain. When Data Anonymization is enabled, deleted users will automatically have their Personal Identifiable Information (PII) anonymized. The username, email address and other PII will no longer be available for display in Onsight Platform Manager (OPM) reports and call statistics. An anonymized pseudonym will be inserted in its place to prevent identification of the user. Call statistics, reports and events will still contain the anonymized data for analytics.

HoloLens 2 – File Management

Local file management is now available within Onsight Connect for HoloLens 2 to view, share and manage images and recordings. QR code login support is also included to streamline access to Onsight Connect on the HoloLens 2.

Using Workspace Webhooks, you can now automate content management with external systems through HTTP callbacks (Webhooks) as defined in OPM. An active Webhook will automatically notify the external system when Workspace creates, modifies or deletes an asset.

Video Enhancements

Onsight clients now include additional options to enhance video quality including adjustments to Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) defaults that optimize delivery of media packets in challenging environments and the ability to display the last best picture until full frame video packets are received. This new ‘Wait for Refresh on Lost Video Frame’ option is ideal for use cases where picture quality is more important than motion.

Android: 3 Participant Call Support

For customers with industrial Android devices and dedicated network infrastructure, a new option is available to add a 3rd call participant without needing a PC in the call as the host device. Note: this option requires Android 10 devices with a minimum of 3Mbps (bandwidth/network) and 2GB RAM.
