In most modern video surveillance systems, when switching from multiple camera preview mode to viewing of an enlarged image of one camera, this image simply blocks all others. Axxon Next video management software features a step by step zoom mode allowing the operator to maintain control over all cameras.
Upon the first mouse click on the image, it comes to the foreground and it shows additional control tools. With subsequent mouse clicks on a selected image, it will gradually increase in size while the remaining images will be reduced in size and distributed along the edge of the monitor screen. If you click on one of the small images, it will increase in size and the enlarged one will decrease.
The described mode provides an important advantage - it provides the ability to keep constant control over all cameras on the monitor and track the relationship between the events occurring in the zoomed image and the events that occur on the remaining images.
