The Metadata Player provides a summary of all events, alarms, and inputs recorded with the video. As your video plays, you can opt to change the color of the graphical representation of metadata, as well as the legend in the Vehicle Info pane.

Besides the Metadata Player, the timestamps of the video too, are displayed for every tile.

NOTE: More About Channels

A tile is representative of a channel to which a camera is assigned. The evidence file you have might have multiple tiles, depending on the recorder (and hence the number of supported channels) on which the video was recorded.


To work with metadata settings:

  1. Open the evidence file.
  2. Enable the Metadata Player, by clicking View > Metadata Chart.
  3. Observe the graphical display of the Metadata Player to get a sense of the events and incidents recorded in this video. The Vehicle Info pane contains the legend.
  4. In the Metadata Player area below the timeline, right-click and select Display Metadata Settings. The Metadata Display Settings Dialog window appears.

NOTE: Input Settings Depend On…

Input settings depend on the source file from which the evidence file was created. If a MobileView video was used to create the evidence file, J1939 and integration inputs are supported under Integration Inputs Settings. For evidence files created from Seon videos, J1939 and integration inputs are not supported, but the Integration Inputs Settings tab (with no entries) is visible. 

  1. If necessary, click the color box next to the event, and set a color of your preference for the graphical representation, as well as the legend in the Vehicle Info pane, Click OK. The color of the event legend, as well as the graphical representation changes.
  2. Right-click in the Metadata Player area, and click Show Tooltip. Upon hovering your cursor over the graphical representation, a tooltip for each graphical representation will appear.
