  • Description:

Spot out on HCVR58A32S is adding a second display to the recorder with the intention of certain cameras seen on that display. All functions and menus are on the primary display.

  • How to designate the second display:

This device contains 2 HDMI and 1 VGA ports. Using the HDMI ports as your designators, attach your cables to the HCVR system. HDMI-1 then will be designated as Main-Display-1 and HDMI-2 is your Secondary-Spot Out-Display-2. If using a VGA port then whichever HDMI port is not in use will be the VGA port’s designate. Example: Using HDMI port 2 and VGA ports together the VGA port is designated as Main-Display-1 and HDMI-2 is your Secondary-Spot Out-Display-2.

1. Go to the Main Menu click on System (in the Setting Section.)
