Notice on using PTZ Network Cameras with built-in slip ring

Last update: October, 2020

PTZ type network cameras use parts called "slip rings" to transmit power and signals.
Image quality may deteriorate or noise may occur during pan (horizontal rotation) operation if this slip ring becomes dirty.

Applicable models:

WV-X6533LN(S), WV-S6532LN(S), WV-X6531N(S), WV-X6511N, WV-SUD638, WV-SW598, SW397(A), WV-SC588(A), WV-SC387(A) and WV-SW396(A)

Usage conditions that the slip ring becomes dirty:

1. Keep moving between certain positions for a long time.
   (Reciprocation between certain positions, such as Auto pan and so on.)

2. Do panning only occasionally

Phenomenon that occurs when the slip ring gets dirty:

1. Noises can be seen on a part or all of the screen

 

How to improve the above phenomenon:

Make "Position Refresh" operation periodically in "Schedule" of the setup screen.
