Sometimes you find yourself in a situation where the camera is set to a certain resolution, which is not supported by the monitor or TV you're currently connected to. Therefore, you can not use the IR Remote and change the resolution using the OSD menu. 


Luckily, there are several other methods to change the resolution:


IR remote shortcuts

Have a look at the article "CM40 & CM70 series IR remote Shortcuts" to change the video resolution by pressing a key combination on your IR remote (for instance, [#]→[#]→[2] to Switch the video format to 1080i60, [#]→[#]→[4] to 720p60...) without the need to use the OSD menu.


IMPORTANT: 

  • The camera will maintain the selected resolution even after a soft reboot, but it will return to the video output setting of the rotary dial after a hard reboot (when the camera is unplugged from mains and replugged) 
  • 720p30, 720p29.97 and 720p25 are not supported by the SDI and HDMI outputs.



WebGUI

When using a AV-CM70 series camera you can simply log in to the web interface by browsing to the cameras' IP address (by default on 192.168.5.163. Be sure that your laptop IP address is set within the same IP range)

You can change the output resolution under Video -> Output Format. Then don't forget to click the SAVE button!


IMPORTANT: 

  • The camera will maintain the selected resolution even after a soft reboot, but it will return to the video output setting of the rotary dial after a hard reboot (when the camera is unplugged from mains and replugged) 
  • 720p30, 720p29.97 and 720p25 are not supported by the SDI and HDMI outputs.



Rotary dial

On the back of every camera, you find a rotary dial. This dial allows you to set the resolution with just a simple screwdriver. The required settings and output resolutions differ per model, so please have a look in the manual of your product to find the right setting. See How to use the Select Switch / Rotary dial


IMPORTANT:

• After changing the switch, you need to perform a hard reboot of the camera (unplug it from mains and replug it, not just a soft reboot) to take effect, except on setting F, where all the outputs are defined digitally. 

• 720p30, 720p29.97 and 720p25 are not supported by the SDI and HDMI outputs.




OSD / On-Screen Display

If the rotary dial is set to "F" on your camera, then you can open the 'Video Format' option (in the OSD menu after pressing the MENU button of the IR remote control) and choose the required resolution:

IMPORTANT: 

  • The camera will maintain the selected resolution even after a soft reboot, but it will return to the video output setting of the rotary dial after a hard reboot (when the camera is unplugged from mains and replugged) 
  • 720p30, 720p29.97 and 720p25 are not supported by the SDI and HDMI outputs.



HTTP API commands

Our CM70 series cameras support a full set of HTTP API commands, to change virtually every setting on the camera.

Ther specific command to change the resolution is shown below where 'xxxxxx' needs to be replaced with a numerical value. Please find these values in your manual.
