QuickSet SX20 Dual Camera support

Dear All

I need to assure or confirm that QuickSet SX20 can support Dual Camera in any way.as i heared that it can work as a daisy chain option and with the combination of 1080p12x and 1080p4x camera.


Kindly confirm

QuickSet SX20 Dual Camera support

Hello Umair Ahmed.

Though I would not want to rule out that it might be possible to do so and "missusing" the DVI port as the

secondary camera input, ...

You might have heard it from the other perspectice, the 4x camera can be used for daisy chaining,

but only one can be used and it must be at the end of the chain.

That said does not say that you can use two cams on the SX20.

I would expect that its not supported, but thats not an official statement.

What makes me believe so is if I look at the admin guide in the api description only camera 1 is mentioned.

For a proper two camera setup I would recommend you to use a C40 and upwards!

Dear Martin

So this means its not advisable to add another camera in SX20 and its better to use c40 for 2 camera of above.

and if you have an idea what are the cable required for preparing the daisy chain.

Thanks

It all depends on what you want to be able to do with the cameras.

While possibly not a supported solution, one that we came up with (as we only needed the control of one camera) is to use an HDMI Picture-in-Picture inserter between the cameras and the codec to send the images from both cameras to the SX20 as a single video feed.

The 2nd camera doesn't need to be a Cisco camera either which helped us reduce the overall cost of the solution.

What model/make did you use

What model/make did you use for the HDMI PiP Inserter? I need to use a 2nd camera that is just focused on a whiteboard.
