How much information can I display at the same time?

It is possible to switch on only 2 services at the same time.

Where can I upload my own graphics?

Over the user interface of CamOverlay you can upload your own pictures to your camera or SD card. Supported image formats: jpeg, png (with alpha channel).

What is the fastest update speed for graphics?

It depends on size of the graphics. Small graphics can be updated (on current cameras) up to 2x per sec.

What is the max. size of the picture?

The same as the video resolution – the picture can't extend beyond the borders of the camera video.

How does the size of the graphics change if I want to use different resolutions from the camera?

Graphics stays the same - 1:1, any position/offset is set in pixels, so it is possible to set up for just one specific resolution.

I need to view the info from a service you do not support yet.

We will try to find solution for you, contact us.

What happens with my licence if my camera brakes down?

We will transfer the licence to new camera.(only if you provide RMA)
