Import Existing Project

If you have already used MxControlCenter or MxEasy, you can import an existing MxControlCenter.ini file from the MxControlCenter or the MxEasy.ndb camera list from an MxEasy installation. In both cases, the cameras already integrated in the MxControlCenter (MxCC) or MxEasy are automatically transferred to the MxManagementCenter with their access data.

Furthermore, it is possible to quickly integrate a large number of cameras and camera groups into MxMC using a manually created list in .mxu format. You need to adhere to specific rules for the format when creating the list in order to correctly export the contents of the *.mxu file.


Importing Configurations From MxControlCenter

When importing an MxCC file, the following is taken into account:

  1. Open the Welcome Wizard from the File > Welcome menu.
    Program call: Welcome Wizard
  2. Click on Import MxCC. Decide if the current project should be saved.
  3. Import the desired INI file.

Importing Configurations From MxEasy

  1. Open the Welcome Wizard from the File > Welcome menu.
    Program call: Welcome Wizard
  2. Click on Import MxEasy. Decide if the current project should be saved.
  3. Import the desired NDB file.

Importing MXU Files

Using a manually created list in .mxu format, you can quickly add a large number of cameras and camera groups. You need to adhere to various formatting rules when creating the list in order to correctly export the contents of the *.mxu file.
Important: This list does not replace the project import, during which program settings, such as settings for the cameras and camera groups with assigned layouts, are imported.

  1. Click on Import MXU to import cameras and camera groups in the Welcome wizard. You can save the existing project, if necessary.
  2. Open the *.mxu file.
  3. Decide whether the cameras and groups from the *.mxu file should replace the entire configuration or they should be only added.
