set-up a new camera:
IP/URL address of the camera or the VX / NVX recorder you want to display
Port: It is the video TCP port. By default 80 and should only be changed if necessary.
View: A camera may have several extra views, as well a VX/NVX recorder have several video
channels. The View field specify the view or channel number. The default view is 1.
User Manual - 7
Credentials: Check Use MC to use the master credentials defined for all the cameras, or uncheck it
to specify a particular user and password for the camera.
Aspect: The aspect-ratio is set in automatic by default. This way the AX-TV chooses the best
resolution for the camera in every moment depending on the viewer size.
Name: You can change the camera name here. To show this name on live video, mark the checkbox Show Name or press the button [.com] on the remote control when the AX-TV is in operation.

protocols will be used.
Modify Profile: Check this option to let the AX-TV modify the Onvif profile in the camera to optimize
it to the visualization needs. Otherwise the video stream is used as it is configured in the camera. By
default this option is checked, and the AX-TV is allowed to modify the Onvif profile video. Uncheck it
if for example the camera only has one configurable profile and it is being used by a video recorder.
Once finished press the [Exit
