Media Shortcut enables you to view both previews and live video directly from the CMVR
to your computer if you are on the same local network resulting in both previews and
live video loading faster. Previews are shown at up to 8 frames per second giving the
user a much better experience.
Other features and metadata must still come from the cloud; this includes any analytics
and history browser timeline information (notification indicators, motion regions, ETC).
Media Shortcut will work with both bridges and CMVRs, but the footage does need to be
local on the device. If the footage has already uploaded to the cloud, then this
could reduce the functionality of Media Shortcut
How to enable media shortcuts:
