Multi-Camera Playback
View historical footage from multiple cameras at the same time
Updated over a week ago

Multi-camera playback is used to view historical footage from multiple cameras simultaneously. This feature lets you add up to 4 cameras to a grid formation and view the footage side-by-side. This can be used to track a person through multiple camera angles and review their actions in each frame, rather than switching tabs and viewing footage one camera at a time.


Using Multi-Camera Playback

  1. Open any camera in Verkada Command.

  2. Navigate to the particular time of interest using the historical video controls and select the date and time of the footage you want to see.

  3. Select the historical clip you want to view, then click on the +Cameras button.

  4. Select additional cameras you wish to add to the multi-camera view. You may search for cameras in the text box Filter by camera name. A blue checkmark will appear on the thumbnail of all selected cameras.

  5. To rearrange the camera positions simply click and drag a video feed to the correct position.

  6. Take a snapshot of the multi-camera playback by selecting the Camera button, or archive all of the cameras' feeds with the Archive button to the left of the Camera button.

Adding cameras or increasing playback speed will linearly increase the bandwidth consumption on the camera's network. This article lists the bitrates the different camera models use.
