About Single Touch streaming and recording
The Single Touch feature lets you control the recording and streaming of multiple channels and recorders with one touch of a button on the touch screen. Simply specify which channels and recorders to include for Single Touch control using the Admin panel.
To open the Single Touch control screen from the touch screen on Pearl-2, simply tap the Single Touch control icon.
One Touch control screen components
|1||Start/stop button: Press the Single Touch control button to start or stop streaming and recording for all specified channels and recorders.|
|2||The number of recorders and/or channels that are actively recording (the first number) over the total number of channels that are configured for one touch recording (the second number).|
|3||The number of channels that are actively streaming (the first number) over the total number of channels that are configured for one touch streaming (the second number).|
When you press the start button to activate Single Touch recording and streaming, a blue Stop button appears, the Recording values update to show the number of channels and recorders that are actively recording, and the Streaming values update to show the number of channels that are actively streaming.
In the example above, Single Touch control has been activated and all six out of the six total channels and/or recorders are recording successfully. There is no streaming activity because there are no channels configured for Single Touch streaming.
An error icon displays if there's a problem with the streaming and/or recording settings for one or more of the channels and recorders. All other channels and recorders that are working correctly continue to stream and record normally.
In this example, after pressing Start, both recorders/channels are recording properly but the one channel configured for streaming is not streaming correctly.
To troubleshoot, investigate each channel's streaming configuration page using the Admin panel and identify which channel isn't streaming. Then correct any streaming configuration errors.
See Specify channels for Single Touch streaming and Specify channels and recorders for Single Touch recording for more information about configuring channels and recorders for Single Touch control.
