In the “History” section you can view historical recordings from the displays of the employee for any period of time. You can switch to the section either by clicking the “History” button of control panel or from employee analysis interface. All data from the “History” section is saved on the HDD. In other words, if the information for the whole session or for the selected period is deleted from the Server, or the Server is unavailable for some reason - video will exist and can be played.
Working with Video
Interface for watching video looks like common video player. You can play/pause video by pressing the buttons , or rewind to interesting moment of time by scrolling slider . If employee has several displays, recordings will be played simultaneously in a single interface.
For easy viewing you can create tabs in section. Tabs management works as described in Quadrator. When adding new tab, the window will appear where you need to type parameters for video request. Downloading video from server for large amount of time will require some time. New tab has the name that matches employee’s name whose display recording are displayed in the tab.
Display video recording has following parameters:
- video period,
- speed of video.
Parameters “employee”, “period”, “step” are required for video creating, hence they are set and changed in the pop-up window. After each change of at least one of these parameters, video from the server is updated.
When you create a tab, select the name of employee from the drop-down list. If you change the parameters of an existing tab, you can change the name of the employee. In this case tab will be renamed.
You can select one of the periods for video from the following variants:
- current day,
- current week,
- current month,
- current quarter.
Also you can switch between next and previous periods with arrow buttons and set custom period by choosing start and stop time within the accuracy of minute.
When you choose custom period, program will enter start and end time equal to the time of tab creation.
Step value represents the period of time within which a frame is taken to create video. The less is the step value, the more detailed will be video, recorded from displays.
If the frequency of video storage on the server is less than the one in the "History" section, the video will be displayed according to the settings of video storage frequency on the server.
For example, video is stored on the server at a rate of 1 frame per hour, the viewer will request the history in steps of 1 second, in this case the video in the viewer will be displayed at a rate of 1 frame per hour, and graphics of violations and running applications will be displayed at a rate of 1 second.
Select settings and click "Confirm". Downloading videos from server requires certain amount of time. During the video downloading there will appear video scroll bar.
While viewing video you can change playback speed. For this purpose drop-down panel with speed scale . is provided. Panel is opened/hidden by the button that shows current playback speed. Default speed is 1. Playback speed changes dynamically after each change of slide on scale .
You can save downloaded video of employee work. To save video, press the button below the “Change period” button. Specify the save path of the file in the downloading window. Video will be saved in webm format, which could be played with browser. If the browser does not start after the start of the playback, simply drag the file to the tab area of the browser.
If the employee has paused data collection in the self-monitoring interface, or no video of that employee is being recorded, or the viewer is prohibited from viewing the video of that employee, the corresponding informer will be displayed instead of the video.
