Configuring event logging for video sequences

For systems that have many video sequences configured, the Activity trails report can be extremely large due to the number of camera connections and disconnections. You can reduce the size of the report by configuring the system to only log the connections and disconnections of camera sequences.

What you should know

To configure event logging for video sequences:

  1. In a text editor, open the file GeneralSettings.gconfig found in the ConfigurationFiles folder under the Security Center installation folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Genetec Security Center 5.8\).
  2. Find the <mediaPlayer> node and modify it to <mediaPlayer IsActivityTrailEnabledOnSequence="false"> or <mediaPlayer IsActivityTrailEnabledOnSequence="true">, as required.
  3. Save your changes and close the file.
    The new configuration takes effect immediately.
  4. Repeat the procedure for other workstations, as required.
