The Cameras list is split into three components: Search, Matrix Cameras, and your current area cameras (e.g. "Hawthorne House").
Search will allow you to find any camera from any area by searching for the Camera name. Once you've found the camera you want, click on it to drop it into the Media Matrix.
This will show all the live Cameras that are currently being displayed in the Media Matrix along with a Cell Position Icon to help you identify their location.
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.
