Video Walls

Overview

This article outlines how to setup and stream video from Meraki MV cameras using a video wall. For dedicated video wall workstation guidance, refer to our video wall hardware recommendations article.

Creating a Video Wall

Creating video wall layouts is network-wide and requires network admin permissions. However, any camera admin with view permissions to a camera in the network will be able to see video wall layouts, as long as they have access to at least one camera within that layout. All other layouts where they cannot view any camera within the layout, will be hidden. 

 

  • Go to Cameras > Monitor > Video wall.  Select Edit Layouts.

  • Select New Layout. This will create a new video wall tab.

  • You can select the Layout name field to update the name of the layout.

  • You can review the cameras in your network to select from, either by Thumbnail or List view, and can also search by camera name, model, or tags
  • Select a camera to add to the video wall by clicking on the camera thumbnail (in Thumbnail view) or row (in List view)

Note: A video wall supports up to 16 video tiles

  • Design the video wall by resizing camera nodes. This is done by clicking and dragging the corner of the camera node.
