Linked Cameras in the Command Station Desktop Client

Linked camera viewing is a highly intuitive feature that allows users to easily and quickly track individuals or incidents by clicking on the screen in the direction a person is traveling. Available in both live view and search within Command Station Desktop Client, users do not need to remember camera naming conventions or know which cameras are associated with an area, nor do they have to manually load each camera. This allows users to follow individuals as they travel from one area to the next without losing track, or to continue monitoring an incident as it unfolds. Linked camera settings are saved to OpenEye Web Services (OWS), and made available to all users once configured, saving the time and hassle of configuring each user’s remote client individually.
