Video

Normally the camera sets its exposure and white balance automatically according to the scene conditions. You may rarely need to adjust the camera white balance or exposure.
The video property group allows you to adjust how the talentS camera captures the scene.
Changing video property settings during the live production is not suggested.
Please keep that in mind: Settings under the Video property group are not for a visual enhancement of your monitoring. Those settings may affect your talent tracking quality.
  • The Resolution property allows you to select the camera resolution. It comes with the following presets 720p, 1080p, and 2k. Change your resolution in accordance with the distance between talent and the camera.
Changing the resolution reboots the talentS camera which takes several seconds.
  • Image: Since the talentS camera is stereoscopic and has binocular vision, the Image property allows you to check your camera view through the left or right lenses. Normally all operations and configurations are carried out with the left camera image. Switching to the right camera image is only required for checking the image quality and the camera view for debugging purposes.
