Can I put overlays on top of the video in AXIS Media Control?

Some options:

- Use overlays on your camera to burn-in e.g. date and time information in the video. Use VAPIX to control this from your application.

- You can, of course, put a Window control on top of AMC, which typically will be an opaque,    rectangular overlay. Complex forms and transparency are not supported by this method.

- AMC SDK supports two APIs for overlaying graphics in video. For more information, see the    chapter: ‘AMC Usage’ -> ‘Drawing’.
