Viewer tab

Pressing the <Share> icon on the home page opens the Share suite in Viewer mode. The Viewer initially shows up as a large gray space to the right of the channel dashboard. Multiple programs may be viewed simultaneously; you may view multiple channels or different views of a single program.

As channels are selected they appear in the viewer. If more than one channel is selected the audio of subsequent channels is inhibited. To activate audio of another channel hover over that program and left click. The channel name turns blue indicating it is the active audio channel.

At the bottom of each channel player are various controls. If the channel is available in more than one bit rate or resolution the options are displayed in a dropdown to the left of the Live icon.

If MIS does not have enough space to display all the controls they are collapsed; hovering over the control ribbon expands to display any hidden icons. If multiple channels are selected the channel viewers are shrunk to fit the available space while maintaining the correct aspect ratio.

The number of video streams you can watch simultaneously depends on the Volicon software license, your computer’s performance and the speed of your network connection. Assuming sufficient network bandwidth the player should be able to display up to 24 SD or 12 HD programs.
