You can connect a VCR equipped with separate audio and
video input jacks to the monitor, then play back the
recording on the monitor or a standard TV equipped with AV
input jacks.
To record the sound and picture from your camera, connect
the monitor's V-OUT and A-OUT jacks to the audio and video
input jacks of your VCR using video-quality shielded cables
(not supplied).
If you plan to play the recorded tape through the monitor,
connect the monitor's V-IN and A -N jacks to the VCR's audio
and video output jacks using video-quality shielded cable
(not supplied).
If you plan to use two cameras with the monitor and VCR,
we recommend adding an A/V switchbox to avoid the need
to unplug and reconnect cables during tape playback (see
“Connections” on Page 4).
