To get a better view of the finer details of what you are monitoring, you can zoom in on the live or playback video that is displayed in a tile, regardless of whether you are using fixed cameras or PTZ cameras.

What you should know

There are two types of zoom mode as follows:
  • Digital zoom mode (software zoom)
  • PTZ mode (hardware zoom)

The maximum zoom level that a camera can attain depends on the model of camera that you have. For more information about the zoom capacity of your camera, contact your service provider.
