Contemporary In-Wall Camera Enclosure
For Sony® and Canon® PTZ Cameras
The Vaddio CoverVIEW is a simple and attractive way to install PTZ
cameras into a wall cavity. The system is comprised of two parts: a metal
backbox and a curved ABS plastic bezel with acrylic lens. The backbox
has conduit knockouts on all sides and mounting flanges on both sides.
An adjustable tripod screw slot on the bottom of the box allows for
fastening the PTZ camera securely to the metal back box. The
CoverVIEW enclosures fit the Sony EVI-D100, Vaddio WallVIEW 100
PTZ System, Canon VC-C50i and the Vaddio WallVIEW 50i PTZ
System. The CoverVIEW for the Sony EVI-D100 and the Vaddio
WallVIEW 100 PTZ System is available in black or white plastic bezels.

PTZ System is only available in black (Figure 1)

The CoverVIEW is intended for installation into finished drywall and does not require a rough-in kit or partial
pre-installation. The cabling can be pre-wired or cabled at the time of installation and is strictly a function of
integrator or customer preference, not a product requirement.
Drywall Mounting
Marking and cutting the drywall is probably the most challenging part of the CoverVIEW installation. Behind
any stud wall, the studs are either 16” or 24” on center and are either wood or metal. The CoverVIEW will fit
between either stud configurations.
The following steps should be followed for best installation results:
1. Determine the position of the camera. Consider camera height, viewing angles and distances from the
subject matter, sight lines, possible temporary obstructions (audience member heads) and the PTZ
specifications of the camera.
2. Determine the locations of the studs behind the drywall. Ensure that there are NO obstructions such as
horizontal studs behind the drywall and verify that there are NO utilities (electrical, gas, water, phone or
data) in this drywall area between the studs.

Camera Backbox Installation
1. With the supplied mounting template measure and mark the rough wall opening and verify that the
template is level. Verify positioning of camera before cutting the drywall.
2. Carefully cut the opening in the drywall (or direct qualified drywall installer to cut the opening).
3. Carefully slide the camera backbox into the wall opening, and with mounting flanges against the wall,
mark the four mounting screw locations while leveling the backbox.
4. Carefully remove camera backbox from hole and drill the four 5/8” holes marked on the template.**
5. Route the cabling for the PTZ camera into the wall opening and determine which one of the three conduit
knockouts to use on the sides or top of the backbox and remove it.
6. Place the camera assembly in the backbox over the slot in the bottom of the box. Using the ¼”-20 x ¼”
screw, attach the camera assembly to the backbox. Gently slide camera assembly as far back into the
backbox as possible and then tighten the screw securely.
7. Using the four (4) - 1/4” x 2” long supplied screws and toggles, insert the screws through the front of the
mounting holes on the mounting flanges and secure toggles to the rear turning two or three turns.
8. Carefully insert backbox into mounting hole pressing the toggles completely into the wall.
9. Tighten the four mounting screws securely while checking the backbox for level.
**Alternate Installation Note: Standard EzAnchors® or spiral type drywall anchors can be used instead
of the toggle bolts if preferred. EzAnchors and screws are not included.
Bezel Installation
1. The acrylic lens is attached to the bezel at the factory and the protective film is scored to help with
removal. Taking care to avoid scratching the acrylic lens, peel off the protective film (Figure 2).
2. Center the bezel mounting template over the installed camera backbox. NOTE: Be sure to position the
TOP of the template over the TOP of the backbox and center the bezel to cover the entire backbox.
3. Check the template and make sure the template is level, then mark the four mounting holes.
4. Remove the template and drill four (4) - 3/16” holes as marked.
5. Carefully tap the four conical anchors into the wall until fully seated.
6. Install the bezel using the four (4) - 1” long sheet metal screws supplied in the hardware bag.
7. Snap trim panels into place on either side of the bezel, tabs inward toward the middle.
