Once the cameras have been defined, the operator can right-mouse click on the camera and view live video from the device.  The device can also be associated with hardware points within the application using the Video_Linking property of the device. Any alarms / events that occur on that device will call-up the associated camera.  Any device with a camera associated to an event / alarm will also display a camera icon in the History Events report.
