DW Spectrum user interface includes the following main regions.
Viewing Grid for Layouts
The central Viewing Grid can display up to 64 individual Items – live camera streams, recorded video files, websites, etc.
An arrangement of items in the Viewing Grid is called a Layout. Layouts can be named and saved. Multiple layouts can be open at once, each displayed in a separate tab.
Sliding panels on each side of the Viewing Grid provide management and display tools. These panels can be resized by dragging the inner edge towards or away from the Viewing Grid, and hidden or opened using the directional arrows.
•Navigation Panel (top) – provides access to the Main Menu , tabs for each layout, the DW Cloud connection form, the help system, and standard window sizing controls.
