LCD Monitor Setup – AV Cable to Camera ! Connect the yellow RCA or BNC end on the AV Cable to your cameras video out or other source. Example of the BNC Video out on a Canon XL2 and a Sony PMW-EX3 Video Camera. This LCD Monitor is compatible with any Canon, Sony, Panasonic and JVC Cameras including HD models as well as Digital Cameras and any other video source. Video source must have an RCA or BNC video out to output the video to the LCD monitor. Some cameras may require an adapter such as a 'Male to Male RCA Adapter' or an 'S-Video to RCA Adapter'. Example of the Video adapter that comes with many professional video cameras. (Mini Plug to RCA/S-Video) Note: Canon XL2 Users: The AV jack panel next to the battery well on the right side of the XL2, you'll find an S-video jack, a BNC video jack and a yellow RCA composite video jack. There's a small switch just to the left of the BNC jack which toggles the video signal between the BNC and RCA video jacks. If you're plugged into one of these two jacks and you're not getting a signal, it's probably because this switch isn't positioned correctly. It's very tiny and kind of easy to miss! See photo above.
