If you are a reviewer, you might need to review videos that capture a recorded incident. A careful review will help determine if the videos can be used to create evidence files.

Evidence Manager can play videos from several sources:

  • Other workstations, depending on the network topology
  • A device connected via its Service Port, appearing under Service Port
  • Docking stations
  • Devices that are associated with Evidence Manager
  • Physical locations, both from the computer on which Evidence Manager is installed, as well as network drives
