During compressed playback (TimeCompressor), the viewing tile simultaneously displays tracked objects from different moments in time within the selected portion of the archive. This lets you quickly look through the archive to find important events and investigate them in more detail.

For condensed playback of archived video from a camera, the following conditions must be true:

  1. Camera is bound to an archive (see Binding a camera to an archive).
  2. Analytics for the camera are enabled (see Object Tracker).


Time Compressor is most useful when there are not a large number of objects constantly moving in the video camera's field of view.


For proper viewing of recorded video in TimeCompressor, make sure to detect a high-quality stream (see Setting General Parameters).  We recommend using the maximum video resolution for the high-quality stream (see The Video Camera Object).
