When [Enable] is selected, the audio input through the microphone attached to the camera can be transmitted to the Viewer

(2) [Input Volume]

Set the volume of input for the microphone connected to the camera in the range of 1 to 100. The greater the value, the larger the input volume becomes.

Switch line in and microphone in on each setting page according to the specification of the microphone.

Using the wrong input may damage the camera and/or microphone. Be sure to configure settings correctly.



Õ Video and audio can be distributed to up to 30 clients.

However, when there are many clients or they are connected to the camera over an SSL connection, the video frame rate may slow down and the sound may drop out if audio reception from the camera is enabled.

Õ The volume, sound quality, etc., may change depending on the characteristics of the microphone used.

Õ If the [Input Volume] settings are changed after setting volume detection, check the detection setting again.

Õ The video and audio may not be synchronized.

Õ The audio may be temporarily interrupted, depending on the performance of the computer and the network environment.

Õ The audio may be interrupted if anti-virus software is enabled.

Õ Communication may be temporarily interrupted, cutting off the audio, if the LAN cable is unplugged and plugged in again. If this occurs, reconnect from the Viewer.
