This has come up due to an install at a carwash: reducing the timescale of playback so that it will display say the last hour by default.
Bit of background...we have installed 21 cameras to a carwash site, with 6 of those cameras mounted to two poles at the entrance of the tunnel wash to record/view the sides/top of the vehicle- to prove that any dents or damage later claimed by the vehicle owner was pre-existing. I have set up a virtual line trigger in one direction (in only) to create a tagged bookmark in the archive across all 6 cameras, to enable staff to easily go back and find applicable footage.
Problem is, that when they select this layout containing these 6 cameras, the recorded footage shows all the footage from many days, with all the applicable bookmarks. The staff member then clicks on the -/+ to decrease the footage time (which also allows to see the bookmarks individually- not as one merged bookmark).
What would be really useful to this site (and could also be useful for other sites- provided it is somewhat customisable) is to be able to preset how much recorded footage is show when this layout is chosen. For this site, 15 mins would be ideal. For other sites that may be the last hour or even 12 hours. The user can then zoom out to show more footage if required.
Somehow being able to select an 'instant playback' function allocated to a layout (or perhaps by camera(s)) with the ability to chose/select the length of 'instant playback"- either enter a time period or have a series of check boxes. Perhaps located in the camera settings menu- near the pre/post record settings?
