1. SOFTWARE OUTLINE
This setting software is designed to be installed in a PC and used exclusively for performing the settings
necessary for operating the VM-3000 system.
Settings are roughly divided into system configurations, failure detection points, broadcasting sound source
priorities, broadcast zones, and function assignment to the control inputs and remote microphone keys. This
software also features a Log function that integrates event log data from the VM-3240VA or VM-3360VA into a
PC and displays such data, as well as an Error List function that shows discrepancies in set data.
Loading the PC-set data into the VM-3240VA or VM-3360VA allows the VM-3000 system to operate according
to the configured settings.

Notes
• This function can be used only when all the versions of VM-3000VA firmware, VM-3000E firmware, and
VM-3000 Setting Software are 2.00 or later.
• Since broadcast sound volume increases because attenuators are bypassed when the speaker line
surveillance is performed during broadcasts, it is recommended that the time and intervals be set for the
time zone in which no broadcast is scheduled.

7.2. Surveillance Group Settings
Notes
• Surveillance item grouping function and each group's failure status output function can be used only

• The data previously created on Ver. 1.xx can be imported after being converted.
(For details, see p. 42.)
Individual surveillance items can be registered into up to 64 groups.
If a failure is detected on any item in a group, this can be notified by the indicator on the remote microphone.
One failure status control output equipped with the VM-3000VA or VM-3000E can be set for each surveillance
group.
