Button Description
LIVE FEED When active, incoming audio will be played according to the active systems/talkgroups on the SELECT TG panel.

Disabling LIVE FEED will also stop any playing audio and will clear the listening queue.

HOLD TG Temporarily maintain the current talkgroup in live feed mode.
REPLAY LAST Replay the current audio from the beginning or the previous one if there is none active.
SKIP NEXT Stop the audio currently playing and play the next one in the listening queue. This is useful when playing boring or encrypted sound.
AVOID Activate and deactivate the talkgroup from the current or previous audio.
SEARCH CALL Display the archived audio panel.
PAUSE Stop playing queue audio. Useful if you have to answer the phone without losing what’s queued up for playing.
SELECT TG Display the systems/talkgroups selection panel where you decide which audio you want to listen to in *LIVE FEED (not in offline playback mode).

The selection panel has no effect if you play calls from the archived audio panel.

Button State
ON All talkgroups, from any systems, that correspond to this group are actives. If you press it while it is active, it will make these talkgroups inactives.
OFF All talkgroups, from any systems, that correspond to this group are inactives. If you press it while it is inactive, it will make these talkgroups actives.
PARTIAL Some talkgroups, from any systems, that correspond to this group are actives and some are inactives. If you press it while it is active, it will make all these talkgroups active.
ALL OFF Make every groups inactives, thereby disabling all talkgroups.
ALL ON Make every groups active, thereby enaabling all talkgroups.

Systems/Talkgroups selection section

Archived audio list

Search List This section presents the list of archived audio files. Depending on the LIVE FEED mode you are at, the replay function behaves differently:
Mode Function
LIVE FEED ON while LIVE FEED is active, press the PLAY button to play this audio file. If another audio file is playing, it will be stopped and the one you just selected will be played instead. After playback finishes, the listening queue will resume as normal.
LIVE FEED PARTIAL This is the offline playback mode which can be activated only if LIVE FEED is inactive. Press the PLAY button to play this audio file. After playback is finishes, the next audio file from in list is played. While the audio is playing, pressing the STOP button will cancel the offline playback mode.
At the bottom right of this section is the paginator to browse the whole database. This paginator is disabled while in offline playback mode.
Note that offline playback mode always requires your web application to be online. It is called like that because it plays archived audio files.

Archived audio filter

Search Filter This is the section where you filter archive audio to a specific date, system and talkgroup. You can also change the list order. There is also a small slider that changes the PLAY buttons to DOWNLOAD buttons. This allows you to download audio files individually regardless of the playback mode you use.
Note that if you change any filter while in offline playback mode, it will deactivate it.
