I am used to Meraki but new in video cameras, need an easy access for users to the camera.
A few users should get an quick view to an camera we plan to install at an gate.
Users shouldn´t be bothered with an complicated log in (we have 2FA for the dashboard and auto logg off after a while for normal dashboard users) and camera choosing circumstances and hopping through menues.
They need a quick view to the gate to decide to open the gate or not. The best would be an direct link to the camera with auto log on.
So it could be that Meraki is not the best coice for this case?
It's a little black block that does the same as the Raspberry Pi. Maybe triple the price, but you just plug it in. Connect screen via HDMI. Has a web interface to setup. Set and forget easy. Supports multiple cameras. A nice solution all around.
After that, you could probably use VLC on a little Windows box. Same as the Raspberry Pi solution, but needs something that runs Windows. I would use an i5 or better.
If you can, I would try and get a 1440p monitor. Especially if you are using an MV72X. Note that the Axis 8705 can only do 1080p (not that 1080p is bad ...), so if you are using a 1440p camera like the MV72X you'll actually have to turn the quality down to 1080p to make it work.
