Camera Titling Convention 
(i.e. Which way is that camera pointing?)

Our surveillance cameras have built in titling that show up as characters at the top of the picture. These titles change depending on which way we choose to have the camera pointing. You may recognize these titles from your morning news. Many local TV stations receive video from us and include it in their morning traffic reports. Most cameras will be pointed in one direction in the AM rush hours, and in another direction in the PM rush hours. Any time there is a traffic incident within range of our cameras, we may point the camera in that direction.

The convention used in our titling is very simple. Most cameras are located at the intersection of two roads. Both road names generally will be in the title, with the road actually in view as the first name. For example: "I-495 - River S" is a title you typically see on the camera at River Rd. and the Beltway (I-495). Since the camera view is looking at I-495, that name shows up first, and the nearest cross street to the camera location (in this case River Rd.) shows up second. The "S" at the end of the title indicates the direction the camera is actually pointing. This is a general compass direction, you will only see N, S, E or W. Back to top of Page
