Live Viewer Multi-Window

Previous Next  Print this Topic

Use SoleraTec's Phoenix RSM Live Viewer Multi-Window application to view live video feeds directly from RTSP-enabled IP cameras. View action as it is happening with the Live Viewer Multi-Window.

Before seeing live feeds, cameras must be configured in the Camera Policies application as part of your Information Repository. To view live feeds in the Live Viewer Multi-Window application, the Live View URL checkbox must be selected and the IP address must be entered in the first field of the Video Capture or Live View URL when adding the camera configuration.

If this is done and you want to get started quickly, see Live View Camera Feeds.

To be able to view and record live video feeds, you must ensure that RTSP is enabled on your IP camera. See your camera's documentation for details on enabling RTSP.

Most cameras can manage a single live feed while video streams are being captured. More than a single live feed on any given camera affects performance.

Live viewing from a VMS camera is not supported.

When Live Viewer Multi-Window is launched, the Control Center window is opened.

The left pane shows any saved layouts, patrols, configured cameras, and camera pools across the entire network.

The Events Panel,right pane, displays the date/time, alarm type, and camera of any detected camera alarms.
