Optimize views for TV screens or mobile devices

A Network Operations Center (NOC) view provides a single page view of critical statistics that can fit on a TV screen or a mobile device. If you define multiple subviews, they rotate automatically on the screen, each subview available as a separate slide.

Headers and footers are compressed in NOC views, increasing the available space to display resources.
