I have an office that needs to only view 1 or 2 live feeds. We have about 120 cameras total but for this particular office, they need to see limited. With that said, before we had analog cams and just ran them to a box behind the monitor that's mounted in the office.

What's a cheap efficient way to achieve this with IP cameras? We run iVMS on the other monitors through re-purposed laptops but I don't really want to use a laptop in this situation. Possibly a PC stick? Raspberry PI running tinycam pro??

I suggest a Fire TV stick with side-loaded Tinycam Pro, plugged into HDMI port.
It's all under $50 total and if no joy, you can return the stick to amazon.....

Specs say t'll work with MJPEG/MPEG4/H264/H265/RTSP, ONVIF Profile S; you may have to select a cam's substream for your feed, as here.

Thanks. I will test this tonight on my Fire TV Stick. Would I be able to lock down the application though? End users tend to have bad tendencies when access is not limited.
