Matrix Cameras

Current Area (e.g. "Hawthorne House)

The Current Area list shows all the cameras that are part of the Area the operator has opened (in this case "Hawthorne House"). 

Any cameras that are already being shown in the Media Matrix will be highlighted in Blue. If the camera isn't highlighted that means it isn't being displayed right now. 




The Areas menu lets you navigate through all the different Areas of your system and find any cameras you might need even if they aren't part of the Area you're currently in.




The Audio section allows you to select an audio device to Transmit or Receive audio from (depending on the individual devices options and compatibility).

Expand the "Area Devices" to see all audio devices for the given area then click on the device you want to use.

Once selected the top section of "Audio" will display large buttons for Receive and/or Transmit. Click on one of the buttons to start, then click again to stop.

Note: The browser may ask for permission to access your microphone. To transmit you will need to grant the permissions.
