When you add a source to the Source defaults list, the Default decorator, Default Group, is automatically assigned to the source. You can then assign a different decorator group to any source that is not already shared on a Perspective.

What you should know

Decorator groups can only be assigned to video sources (either cameras or a camera sequences) that are linked to Security Center. The video sources must not already be shared on Perspectives.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Plugins task.
  2. Select Barco CMS from the entity browser, and click the Decorators tab.
  3. Select the Source defaults pane.

  4. Select a source from the list.
  5. If there are no sources already in the list, click Add, and select a source from the Source selector dialog box, then click OK.
  6. Select a decorator group from the Default decorator drop-down list.
  7. Click Apply.


The decorator templates that are part of the selected decorator group are applied to the source.
