On the tab additional information in the report can be adjusted.

 

Cameras summary - the number of cameras, the number of used models of cameras, lens focal lengths, the camera resolutions in pixels, the total cost of the cameras (if the cost is assigned to the used camera models).

 

Cables summary - the sum of the lengths of the cables.

All line segments and cables made by line types with marked Cable box in the parameters of the line type will be calculated.

These line types are considered as cable brands. These line types can be assigned to the Signal cable and the Power cable of any camera.

You can simply draw cables as line segments on layouts using these line types. In this case, the cables are considered as main cables which are not attached to any camera.

The report includes the cables attached to cameras and the main cables as well. Cable lengths are calculated for each brand (line type) separately.
