Vision Portal: Multi-network Video Wall

Overview

For this to show up, please create a multi-network wall using the "Create Video Wall" button.

[This feature is currently in BETA]

With V 1.6.6 (Changelog here), you now have the ability to create video walls for single and multi-network on the Vision Portal. Multi-network allows you to now look at camera views that have been set up under several different networks, right on one page on a video wall. 

This multi-network wall is currently visible on all networks, with permissions as described below, under Main Features. 

This feature will be visible only if you have at least one wall with camera tiles on the Dashboard.

  • Once a network is selected, the screen below will show you all the different cameras available to choose from 

  • Select the camera of your choice 

  • If you want to choose cameras from another network, you can do so by picking another network until you reach the limit of 16 tile view

  • The x/16 views will serve as a reminder for you on the no of tiles you have selected

To create a single network wall, ensure you're on the required network 

For fisheye cameras:

Selecting a fisheye camera will pop open another view for you which has:

  • 360 view (warped view)

  • Preset dewarped views: Four preset views will exist by default (depending on ceiling or wall orientation)

  • Custom views: You can create additional dewarped views

 

A custom view can be created by clicking on +Add Another on the side, moving your cursor around on the dewarped view and providing a name to it. 

 

You can also delete it once added.
