User Interface Overview - 1

Viewing Grid for Layouts

The central Viewing Grid can display up to 24 (for x86 architecture) or 64 (for x64 architecture) individual Items – live camera streams, recorded video files, websites, etc.

An arrangement of items in the viewing grid is called a Layout, which can be named and saved. Multiple layouts can be open at once, each displayed in a separate tab.


Sliding panels on each side of the viewing grid provide management and display tools. These panels can be shown or hidden, individually or all at once, and pinned in position.

Navigation Panel (top) – provides access to the Main Menu main_menu; tabs for each layout; shortcuts to the WAVE Sync Client and the help system; and standard window sizing controls.

Playback Panel (bottom) – controls playback of local videos and live streams

Resource Panel (left) – the Resource Tree displays all servers, devices (cameras, analog encoders, DVRs/NVRs, IO Modules), layouts, Showreels, web pages, other Systems, and local files (video and image files) available to the current user. The Search pane speeds location of available resources.

Notification Panel (right) – displays notifications of System and custom events and alerts.
