video signal. When the setting is made on the camera
adaptor, the transmission direction must be also changed
on the CCU.
MIC/LEVEL (microphone/intercom level) switches
The MIC and LEVEL settings specify the following
functions:
ON/REAR: Turns on the intercom microphone. Adjust
the intercom reception level with the INCOM level
control.
l DC OUT (direct current output) connector (4-pin)
Outputs a direct current of 10.5 V to 17 V at a maximum
rated current output of 1.5 A. Connecting equipment with
a power consumption greater than the maximum rating
will activate the protection circuit, cutting off the current
flow.
