Regions of Interest (ROI) View List

GoToAir Replay can create multiple ROI’s for each camera and save it in a list for later usage.

Shortcut to save location is ‘Ctrl+D’, which opens a window that allows you to add a unique name to the ROI.
Once you have created and saved your ROI’s, you can select them by:

  1. Select the camera used for the ROI by choosing the number key. Then using your joystick keypad or mouse, click on the the ROI button and then click on the desired ROI, or
  2. Select the camera used for the ROI by choosing the number key and use the “+” or “-” keys to step through the stored ROI’s for that camera until you have the one you want to use/record.
