SYSTEM SETUP
Channel Selection
WARNING – DO NOT OPERATE TRANSMITTER WITHOUT ANTENNA
CONNECTED TO ANTENNA PORT. Failure to do so will result in damage to the unit and
will void the warranty.
Since the transmitter and receiver look similar, these instructions apply for both devices when
changing channels. For the wireless link to work, both devices must have the same channel
selected.
1. Attach the included rubber duck antennas to the transmitter and receiver.
2. Power-UP the Transmitter/Receiver using the included power supply & switch to “ON”
3. Set the desired channel by turning the rotary switch to channels from 1 - 8
4. Repeat these steps for the receiver. The receiver must have the same and matching
channel to receive the video signal
5. We strongly recommend that you do not adjust the video gain adjustment without first
consulting a member of the VideoComm Technologies Tech Support Team

Conducting a Bench Test
With so many technical variables in an installation, the strongest recommendation we can make
is to conduct a bench test. After verifying that all components of the system are in good working
order and connected properly, we can arrive on the job site confident that all of our devices will
install with the least amount of on site effort.
Basic Bench Test Procedure
1. Physical Inspection of Product
•
•
Compare the unit to the product photo on the attached specification sheet.
Check for physical damage to the devices, contact your distributor or VideoComm Technologies
Technical Support immediately should you suspect damage to the unit.
2. Bench Testing Your 5.8GHz device
•
•
•
•
Attach the included rubber duck antennas to the transmitter and receiver.
Connect power supply leads to the transmitter & receiver.
Use a separate power supply for each device. Do not share power supplies.
Connect the Video Output from receiver to your monitor – cables not included

TIPS & TROUBLE SHOOTING
Things that block transmission
Things that block transmission are not always obvious. Consider any obstruction that may get in
the way or reduce the wireless signal strength along the way. Here are some of the most common
pitfalls:
•
Transmitting through walls in an office environment may be limited if the transmitting
path has many desks, computers and other office type equipment in it’s path. Raise the
transmitter and receiver above desks and equipment to minimize obstructions.
•
Steel, or anything with steel in it---steel-reinforced concrete (rebar) or metal window
screens, or a tool-room cage. Aluminum siding, and energy-saving foil on the
insulation in the walls are sneaky killers for radio waves. Some metallic paints or
metallic wallpapers also block signals.
•
Mirrors block transmission, because the “mirror” consists of a metallic backing on the
glass.
•
Lead windows will kill radio transmission; also windows that are UV coated may
have thin metal energy-saving film.
•
Other materials like brick, drywall or wood, will also cut down on the signal,
depending on water content.
Snow on the Monitor
If there is snow or noise on your monitor, it is a good indication that the receiver is not receiving
enough RF signal to process the video.
To correct an image that has a lot of noise (snow) :
•
•
•
•
Move the transmitter and receiver closer together.
Eliminate obstructions between the transmitter and receiver.
Add a high gain antenna to the receiver end to increase receive sensitivity.
Use a higher output power transmitter.

Interference
We strongly recommend that you always conduct a temporary setup of any wireless equipment
before systems are permanently mounted. As we are sharing a radio frequency that are
considered part of the public band, we do not have any entitlement to that frequency and must
accept interference if it exists.
Examples of RF Interference
•
•
•
Other 5.8GHz video transmitters in your area.
5.8GHz wireless data network, LAN or WAN. 802.11a devices
Proximity to some consumer products may be a source of interference. Examples include
cordless phones, consumer data transceivers for wireless Internet.
Other Examples of Interference Not Related to Wireless
•
•
•
•
•
•
Improper line-of-sight, installation or alignment of transmitters and receivers.
Power source ground loops.
Incorrect voltages to devices (too high or too low), including transmitters and receivers.
Sharing power supplies between devices.
Power source is too close to video cable, low impedance, coax cable kinks, poor video
cable terminations, improper and/or lengthy power source cabling.
Corresponding transmitter and receiver sets are on different channels.
Possible Solutions if Experiencing Interference
•
Change the channel of your transmitter or move your wireless video devices farther away
from the source of interference. Transmitters do not have to be beside the camera source
and the receivers do not have to be beside the monitoring equipment.
•
Before connecting the video feed into the transmitter, use a field monitor to check that
you have a good video picture. Similarly for the receiver, check the video output first
before connecting to the video feed into the monitor or recorder.
•
Depending on the installation, use an existing building as a shield from interfering
sources.
•
Check power sources and video cable runs for possible ground loops problem, correct
voltages, cable kinks, impedance and proper termination. Ensure proper gauge of
wire/cable is used for lengthy video and power source installations.
•
Whenever possible use separate regulated power supplies for separate devices.
