For even greater access, the Video Insight Server automatically creates a web site that can be viewed from any web browser like Microsoft Internet Explorer or Firefox. The Web Client has all the basic functionality of the Network Client without having to load any software, plug-in or ActiveX control. This is very useful if your organization has restrictions about loading applications or is using other browsers. You can view analog and IP security cameras from multiple video servers at the same time and view recorded surveillance video from any of the surveillance cameras. You can control PTZ cameras online, view facilities maps, view up to 32 security cameras from multiple video servers in a single window. The system supports multiple users and is tightly integrated into the Windows operating system for complete security and by utilizing Video Insight's user manager, you can restrict users from viewing specific cameras, control PTZ's and restrict their ability to play recorded files. Our Web Client uses Microsoft's Internet Information Servers (IIS) to create the web site and allows us to take advantage of it's stability, and flexibility. You can change the port or take advantage of Dynamic or Static IP addresses.
There are two main sections of the screen: the viewing panel which can be customized to view up to 32 cameras and the Left Navigation Tree which can be used to navigate from camera to camera and to view recorded files.
The viewing panel can be configured to show from one to 32 cameras in various configurations. The layout buttons at the top of the viewing panel allow you to control the number of cameras displayed. Click on the 4 camera grid and it displays the first four cameras.
Click on the desired layout icon, and the viewing panel changes to reflect the new viewing configuration.
Also at the top of the viewing panel are buttons to Save the current picture, print the current picture, show the view in full screen mode, and open the user manual.
The tree shows the servers that can be viewed (in this case, the Main office server and the IP Server) as well as any facility maps that have been created, and, the option to see the viewing pane in full screen mode (navigation tree not showing).
