  • About

    Tight integration with S2 NetBox access control and event monitoring systems allows for easy administration of person records, which include recent activity as well as editable information such as credentials and access levels. The live access control and event monitoring log enables one-click viewing of associated event video and photo IDs.

    Video streams from S2 NetVR servers or supported third-party video management systems can be directed to any local or remote Magic Monitor display. Other features include video playback from a live video stream, digital zoom and on-screen PTZ controls. Integrated advanced forensics make it easy to search, review and catalog video.

    S2 Magic Monitor enables digital content such as images, signage, RSS feeds, television and promotional videos to be projected to any Magic Monitor in the system. Standard widgets for time zone clocks, traffic, weather, news feeds and website pages are built in.
