    Hi Matt,

    Currently, we do not offer such an option and to be honest, it is not obvious to create such an option since we do not have a standard layout. Also, out max. the layout is 64 channels, while most channel_zero options apply 4, 8, or 16 channels in a fixed grid of 2x2, 3x3, or 4x4. 

    How big is this request? 100 channels? 1000 channels? More?

    Thank you Norman for your reply.

    I see the concern about feeding the channels in a way that would work.

    I don't think the customer would want to see 100 channels at a time this way.  

    My partner thought it would be cool to be able to call up a custom layout via the API callout.

    Example...   A URL that would call up a custom matrix of 4x4 channels.   Maybe even the concept of the software providing a unique ID for a layout instead of a unique id for an individual camera.

    We could pre-populate a custom layout with specific cameras for the customer.  They could then choose what layout they call up remotely via web browser using user/pass in the URL.

    I don't know how feasible it is to have the software create a matrix layout in HTML, but conceptually I thought it would be neat.

    This isn't a make or break feature, just something we thought would work well with this 3rd party application.  (Navigate helps with emergency responders to Schools/hospitals/Jails etc able to call up video in a crisis and follow procedure to resolve the situation).

    We love this software platform and have been impressed on every front.   The efforts and forward thinking of your development crew are impressive.   Thanks by the way :)

    We can do that actually when you open the Nx Desktop client through the command line. See THIS article. 
    In this way, you can open any saved layout, but always in the Nx desktop client. 

    But your requirement is the browser and we do not support multiple cameras through the web browser, just one at the time. 

    I must admit that our software enables a lot of cool things and our developer, indeed, create an awesome application. That being said, unfortunately there is a lot of features that we can think of that would be a great asset to the application, but also our developers apply, there is always just so much they can do. 

    I will move this topic to our feature request section so that our product team is at least aware of your request and they can take that into consideration for future releases.
