VideoXpert: Managing Tags.

Issue

An efficient method is required to find devices in a large camera system.

Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

VideoXpert

Cause

In previous systems, cameras could be filtered by location or groups. This function has now been combined as tags in VideoXpert.
 

Users with the correct permissions can create and assign tags to cameras and devices, helping organize resources within a VideoXpert system. Tags can help users find items in searches where normal search fields (name, number, etc.) may not reveal the correct results. In search fields, tags will populate as tokens, ensuring that users cannot search for a tag that does not exist. A search for a particular tag will only reveal components a user has permission to view.

Resolution

See the following video on how to manage tags.
