Connect the camera to a display and use the IR-remote control and press: * # 8
The firmware versions should now be displayed on screen.
Take the IR-remote and press: * # “Manual”
This will set all settings to their factory default, including IP address and admin password for the -IP / -IPU cameras.
Yes you can! The remote supplied with the camera can control up to 4 cameras. Simply set the camera’s unique IR address for each camera:
Change IR address to 1, press: * # F1
(F2 for 2, F3 for 3 and F4 for 4)
It’s very simple, take the IR Remote and press: * # 1
The Line-in input can be used for line level sources. The audio will be embedded into the IP-stream only. It currently can’t be embedded in the HDMI or SDI output.
Connect the camera to a display and use the IR-remote control and press: * # 4
The IP-address should now be displayed on screen.
Yes! The CM55-VCT is specifically designed for this purpose. It supports your standard H.323 protocol, making it compatible with Polycoms’ MCU back-ends.
All of the video outputs, except the CVBS output, can be used at the same time. The CM60-IP for example, can simultaneously send video over 2 separate IP streams, HDMI and SDI. The CVBS output on all cameras is only to be used exclusively and only supports 480i or 576i. Please make sure to order the CM-CVBS adapter along with the camera.
Every controller that supports the open protocols like VISCA, PELCO and ONVIF can be used to controll the Avonic cameras. The controller has to be able to connect to the camera with a compatible connection, like RS232, RS485 or over IP.
Although open protocols should work, we advise to test in advance if every command gives the expected result, sometimes controllers are programmed different than expected.
The Avonic controller CM-CON100 is tested very well with the Avonic cameras and is therefor a safe choice.
Please contact your supplier, most separate spare parts can be ordered separately. If the spare part is a fixed part of the camera you have to issue a support request at your local supplier.
For Skype for Business you need a PC and USB camera. The CM55-VCU is designed for this purpose and is therefor the most logical choice.
Both cameras have a LAN port for firmware updates the camera. The difference is that the CM60-IP is also able to use this LAN port to stream live video (H.264/H.265) and receive control commands over IP. The CM60-IP also has a Web GUI built in.
The difference between the CM30, 50, 60-series is the image quality of the PTZ camera. Not only the maximum resolution of the CM60 is higher than the CM30, but also the image quality itself is better. So even if you intend to use only 720p on the output, the CM60 will give a better image than the CM30.
