In today's article I'll review my top five FactoryTalk View Site Edition announcements from the “What's New in Visualization” TechED presentation.

Note: You can get your own copy of the full presentation by following the steps in my previous article here.

1) First up is expanded client support for multi-monitor setups. This new feature allows a single client to be configured to support up to six monitors natively:

2) Next up is Trend Pro which has been enhanced to allow the tracing of FactoryTalk Alarms and Events, as well as the creation of Trend Templates:

3) RecipePro+ Recipe Management was also updated adding support for RSView32 Recipe Pro migration as well as CSV Import/Export:

4) Redundancy saw many enhancements in this release, including automatic project replication during project creation, and the added ability to forced failovers from within View Studio.

5) And in addition to the new features, Redundancy system sizing recommendations have also been scaled up to include 80 ViewSE clients, 100 ViewPoint Clients, and 10 HMI, Alarm, and Database servers.
