Live Viewer Layout

Previous Next  Print this Topic

The first time opened, the Live Viewer is set to display four feeds from two cameras, arranged as "2x2" (two rows of two across).

You can change the default Live Viewer display by modifying, renaming, deleting, and then saving the new layout. The Live Viewer remembers the last layout opened and gives you the option to open it the next time you use Live Viewer.

To change the Live Viewer display

1.Click the View drop-down list at the top of the right control panel.

The layout options available in the Live Viewer

2.Select a view configuration.
For the views 1x1 through 4x4, the first number represents the number of live views across, in the row; the second number represents the number of rows, from top to bottom. You can view a maximum of 16 feeds (4x4) at a time.
In addition to the standard grid layouts, there are other layouts that feature one large view frame along with multiple smaller view frames (up to 12). The large view frame is positioned at the top left, top right, bottom left, bottom right, or center of the Live Viewer with the smaller view frames around it.
