  • Standard for number of camera views per screeen?

    Hello all! I was wondering if anyone has a standard for the number of camera views per screen? I've generally seen anywhere from 9-16 views up on the same screen but I'm wondering if there is a better way to figure a suggested quantity... Any thoughts?

    Perhaps I am being a bit too simplistic in my thoughts here, but I think it depends on the size screen that you are using.

      Jim's on the right track. It depends on what you need from what you are looking at. If you are just looking for movement, then you can have a bunch of small screens - you aren't looking for detail. On the other hand, if you need to see what's going on in a certain area and see detail (type, color and license plate of a car, or a good look at an intruder), you have to go bigger.

      I don't know that there is any formula per se, but I'd say for a standard size monitor you don't want to go over 4 screens if you're trying to see normal details. You can also split the screens so you have one large image and then 6 or more smaller images around it. For example, if your main entrance is your big concern, you make that one the largest image and make the others smaller.

      If you have a good enough camera system & space, I'd recommend a large screen that you can tie to another monitor. When you need a large image so you can see all you need, you can put the image you want on it and still have use of the other monitor.
