EasyName Camera Calculations Added

By John Honovich, Published on Oct 28, 2015

Members are adding thousands of cameras a month using the IPVM Camera Calculator.

Naming cameras are key to making high-quality professional presentations with our PowerPoint, PDF and Word export options as well as simply keeping track of the larger and larger projects being created with the Calculator.

We have made it incredibly easy to quickly add names to cameras. As soon as you add a camera, an editable label will pop up next to the camera. Type the name, click return and it is named. If you do not want to name it then, just ignore the field and it will disappear.

Here it is in action:

And here is what a slide from an exported PowerPoint presentation with that named camera looks like:

Plus, since members are overwhelmingly assigning specific camera models to each calculation, we have added a convenience display that shows which model it is when the member hovers over the camera, like so:

Also, we have activated Google street labels as an option to help you identify local locations and map out projects in larger areas, like so:

Coming up in the next week, we will be adding in IR distance metrics, showing on the map how far each camera's IR range is specified, plus adding camera images and form factor for each camera listed in the Calculator selector tool.
