Setting Up Video Views for Contextual Playback

You can display the synchronized video data alongside other view components, as follows:

a) On the main panel, navigate through the protocol tree (left-hand pane) to “ViewDefinitions” > “Video” branch.

b) Right-click on the Video branch, and select “Add New” from the pop-up menu.

c) You will be presented with the Video Definition dialogue. Populate the view definition as in the example below and click on OK. The “Display Screen” drop-box allows you to select the default screen on which to display the video view. When the “Maximized” check-box is selected, the video view will always launch in full-screen.

Selecting the “Always on top” option will ensure that the video view has priority over other background windows. This is particularly helpful if you are working with a single-display computer and want to look at the window as well as video view.

d) The views created will appear in the protocol tree, under the Video node

e) Right-click on the desired view, and select Launch Video Player. This will spawn the selected video channel on the respective screen. Alternatively, you can double click on a view to launch it

f) You are now ready to view contextual video alongside trial data. Note that switching a trial will automatically switch to the associated video data on the video view.

g) Note that if there is a positive video time offset, the video view will show frame 1 until the time reaches the offset time. If the video time range is less than the time range, the last video frame will be shown (frozen) when the time is greater than the video time.
