Logo Profiles

The Logo Profile dialog is used to extend the image files that have been uploaded in the Manage Image Files dialog to a logo profile with the corresponding display options.

A logo profile is the combination of an image file and its positioning information in the camera image.

Logo Display

Select the desired option to either activate or deactivate the logo display in the camera image.

Profiles & Options

Note: Click on the More button at the bottom of the dialog to display all options for all profiles.

Set the following parameters in the Image Profiles dialog for each profile:

Parameter Description
Logo n Enter a unique logo name. The camera will use this name for error messages.
Valid characters are letters, digits, dot, comma and underscore.
Enable Logo Using this switch, you can temporarily hide individual logos. Hidden logos remain stored and can be shown again later on.
Time Table Profile To show a logo time-controlled, you can select a Time Table.
Live Image Logo Using this option, you define whether or not the logo is displayed in the live image.
Image Link Logo Specify, whether or not the logo may be used for custom image formats. If you choose the force setting, the logo is displayed in every image and cannot be removed.
Image Sizes Highlight the allowed camera resolutions that may use this logo. The logo is only displayed in the image if it has been approved for this resolution.

Note: If you do not highlight any option, the logo is used with every resolution.

Logo Opacity Use this option to define how visible the logo is displayed within the camera image. Specifying the opacity value lower than 100% results in the actual camera image to shine through. If you would like to obtain a watermark effect, try setting the opacity to 20 to 30%.
Image List The image list contains all available Image Files. You may use one or multiple image files for a logo. When selecting several image files, they are displayed one at a time (rotated) at short intervals.
Rotation Interval Specify the interval for displaying the image files from the image list one at a time.
Positioning Mode The logo image files can be positioned in the camera image in two different ways. For each possibility, the alignment and offset information is interpreted differently.
  • Relative: The logo is positioned in the camera image relative to its alignment, the image size is not relevant.
  • Frame: The logo is drawn as frame around the entire camera image as described under Creating Frames later in this topic.
  Positioning: Relative Positioning: Frames
X/Y Alignment The logo is aligned relative to the camera image. Ignored
X/Y Offset Border offset from the aligned image border in dots. Size of the corner portions of the frame in dots. For additional information on this topic, see the Creating Frames help page.

Adding a Profile

Click on the Add new profile button at the bottom of the dialog to create a new profile. Overtype the proposed name with a name that describes the profile as good as possible; this name is used to identify the profile in other dialogs (e.g. the detail view of the action groups).

Deleting Profiles

In order to delete a profile, activate the Delete checkbox at the top of the profile. The profile will be deleted as soon as you click on the Set button in the lower part of the dialog.

Creating Frames

Using an image file, you can draw a frame in the camera image. Make sure Positioning is set to Frame.

Hint: It is recommended to create an image file with dimensions that can easily be divided by three, e.g. 90 x 90 pixels.

Frame File - Example

The sample file shown fulfills all prerequisites to be used as a frame:
  • Format: PNG
  • Size: 90 x 90 pixels
  • Shape: Square

To configure this image files as frame:

Adapt the frame's Opacity as desired.

Storing the Configuration

Click on the Set button to activate your settings and to save them until the next reboot of the camera.

Click on the Factory button to load the factory defaults for this dialog (this button may not be present in all dialogs).

Click on the Restore button to undo your most recent changes that have not been stored in the camera permanently.

Click on the Close button to close the dialog. While closing the dialog, the system checks the entire configuration for changes. If changes are detected, you will be asked if you would like to store the entire configuration permanently.
