Video Capabilities Overview
Your ix2 Network Storage has multiple ways to manage your videos.
Your ix2 can:
Stream movies that are in Shares with media sharing enabled
Upload videos that are added to Shares associated with social media sites
The ix2 Network Storage has a built-in media server that, when turned on, scans for movies in specific
folders that have media sharing enabled. Any movies contained in these specific folders are accessible to
any user on your network with a media player. For information on enabling a folder as a media folder, refer
on page 24.
Scanning for Movies
The Media Server automatically scans for media content on a regular basis. However, you can click Scan
now at any time to force the media server to perform an immediate scan for movies. This is especially
useful after you have created new folders with media sharing enabled and copied a large amount of media
content to them.
Video Surveillance Overview
The Video Surveillance page lets you add and configure cameras connected to your ix2 Network Storage,
view live video, and see video alerts. The page has three primary links:
Add Video Camera — Manually adds a video camera to your ix2 if it is not automatically
discovered. Refer to
Video Wall — Displays live video from all video cameras configured with your ix2. The video from
all cameras is displayed in a grid.
Alerts — Displays alert messages about the video surveillance feature. Refer to the camera
configuration pages for camera status information.
Video Surveillance features
The Video Surveillance page displays the Name, Space, and Model information of each video camera
connected to the ix2, along with Action controls for each video camera. Administrators have access to
modify these settings.
When no supported cameras are connected to your network, this page will be empty.
