DW Spectrum can be used to display web pages in the layout using the built-in Chromium browser. This can be useful, for instance, for modifying camera parameters on an external web page, or to open an external system such as Access Control or Analytics while also performing surveillance monitoring. Additionally, a web page can be used to view videos and download files.
