The video timeline contains all of the necessary tools for controlling video and accessing important recording information.
The Playback Controls at the bottom left of the Video Timeline provide a quick and easy way to control the selected camera in the Pane Area. The blue bar in the Video Timeline indicates recording, light blue if it is edge recording and dark blue if it is recording to the NVR. The red bars indicate motion detection. When you select a video pane, both the selected pane and the associated camera in the Video Timeline are highlighted.
The main timeline provides a quick and easy way navigate to a specific recording point in a camera’s video feed. If a pane is selected, the Main cursor indicates the current play position of the selected video feed. If it is live, the Main cursor moves with current time. You can switch to playback mode by simply dragging the Main cursor to where you want to begin viewing.
The timeline can be adjusted in scale (zoomed in/out) using the mouse wheel.
For a more detailed look at video playback see the Playback chapter.
