What is a Video Wall
A video wall is a collection of individual camera feeds combined in a single display. They are useful if you want to watch multiple cameras at one time.

Note: You will be prompted to name the wall.
2) Once created you will enter edit mode:
3) Add cameras:
4) Position the cameras:
The top bar contains multiple settings for this video wall. A description of what each button does is provided below:
Note: This may result in choppy playback for computers lacking sufficient processing power.
Note: You must have more cameras then layout selection to be able to use this.
Note: If another user tries to access this wall, but does not have access to all cameras (see role-based access for more info), they will only be able to view the cameras they have access to. If they do not have permission to any of the cameras, the entire video wall will not be displayed.
Note: All organizations contain an "All cameras" video wall which cannot be edited. Like the above, they will only see cameras they have access to.
Sharing a Video Wall
Once you have saved the video wall you created, you are then able to share it by clicking the share button at the top:
When the Sharing popup appears you can password protect, allow past footage viewing, and set an expiration on the stream.
By clicking on the sharing button once more after the original sharing creating you can Copy the link, directly open it, or send the URL via email or text. You can also add an additional sharing stream by clicking the add another. To remove a stream simply click the red trash can next to the URL.
Video Wall Camera Limit
The maximum cameras viewable at one time is 16, but you can add as many cameras as you want to the Wall and they will automatically be rotated through as described above. The limitations are 20 - 30 cameras on one screen while viewing through an Apple TV. To learn more visit our article here.
