    [Digital Zoom]
    Select this to enable or disable digital zoom.
    If [Enable] is selected, the area indicating digital zoom will be displayed next to the zoom slider in the Viewer (P. 68).
    Unlike optical zoom, the higher the digital zoom ratio, the lower the video quality.
    [Enhanced Digital Zoom]
    Select this to enable or disable the enhanced digital zoom.
    When the video size is small, digital zoom can be used to enlar ge it up to the maximum size resolution with reduced video 
    When [Enable] is selected, an area indicating the enhanced  digital zoom and a horizontal line (blue) indicating the 
    enhanced digital zoom telephoto  end are displayed on the zoom slider of the Viewer (P. 68).
    [Maximum Digital Zoom Magnification]
    Sets the maximum zoom magnification for digital zoom.
    [Image Stabilizer]
    Select this to enable or disable blur  reduction in video due to camera vibration.

     Camera Name
     Camera Control
     Day/Night (when Auto is set)
     Installation Conditions
     Camera Position Control
     External Input Device 1, 2
     External Output Device 1, 2
    							Setting Page
    If there is still blur after selecting [On1], select [On2].
    The angle of view will be narrower and video noisier when using the Image Stabilizer, compared to when it is not used.
    [Smart Shade Control Strength (Auto)]
    Select the control strength when [Smart Shade Control] (P. 116) is set to [Auto].
     [Mild]: Select if noise is noticeable.
     [Medium]: Recommended  setting for Auto mode (default setting).
     [Strong]: Select to increase visibility in dark areas.
    [Haze Compensation  Strength (Auto)]
    Select the strength of comp ensation when [Haze Compensation] (P. 117) is set to [Auto].
    When [Haze Compensation] is set to [Auto] and [Haze Compensation Strength (Auto)] is  set to [Strong], contrast may be strong if the 
    subject is not obscured by haze. If this happens,  set [Haze Compensation Strength (Auto)] to [Mild].
    [Infrared Light Strength (Auto)]
    Select the infrared illumination strength when you have selected [Auto], [Auto  (Flickerless)], [Auto (Shutter-priority AE)] or 
    [Auto (Aperture-priority AE)] for [Exposure] (P. 115).
     If all or part of the image appears to have a white glow, there is a possibility that a wall (even a wall not in the image) is  reflecting the 
    infrared lighting. If this occurs, please adjust the camera angle.
     When using the infrared lighting, and there is a problem in getting the desired contrast on the object (would like the image b righter or 
    darker), please adjust the Exposure Compensation (
    P. 115) and/or the Metering Mode (P. 116).
    [Motion-Adaptive Noise Reduction]
    When [Enable] is selected, noise reducti on is automatically adjusted according to movement. For scenes in which there is 
    little movement, noise reduction is increased and data size decreases.
    [Pan/Tilt Speed Control]
    Select the pan/tilt control mode.
    If [Control by zoom position] is selected, the pan/tilt sp eed will be slower in telephoto, and faster in wide-angle.
    [Auto Flip]
    Select this to enable or disable Auto Flip.
    If you enable Auto Flip and tilt the camer a using the video display area in the Viewer  (P. 68), the video will flip when the tilt 
    angle of the camera nears 100°. Because this operation is effect ively the same as panning 180°, at the same time that the 
    video flips, the position of the p an/tilt slider knob moves to the pan/tilt position after flipping.
     The image stabilizer is not effe ctive when the subject is shaking.
     Stabilization is not effective beyond a certain de gree of vibration or for momentary vibrations.
     If you select [On2], It is recommended to sel ect a video reception size less than [640 x 480].
     If you use stabilization, please refer to the inform ation listed in the following “Important” sections.
    – The “Important” section in “Setting Privacy Mask” (P. 145)
    – The “Important” section in “Setting View Restriction” (P. 128).
    – The “Important” section in “Viewing Video with the Camera Viewer” (P. 62).
    – The “Important” section in “Registering Presets” (P. 131).
    The intended effect may not be achievable, depending on the size and movement speed of the subject.
    If you set Auto Flip to [Enable], some of the settings in [Restrict View] are disabled (P. 128).
    If tracking a subject that passes directly under a ceiling mounted  camera (tilt angle 90°), the video will flip as the tilt angle 
    nears 100° without the subject appearing inverted.
    Day/Night (When Auto Is Set)
    Set conditions for switching Day Mode and Nigh t Mode when [Day/Night] is set to [Auto].
    [Switching Brightness]
    Select the brightness for switching Day/Nigh t Mode when [Day/Night] is set to [Auto].
    Select [Darker] if you want to captur e video in color as much as possible.
    Select [Brighter] to reduce noise. Note that this mode switches to monochrome sooner.
    [Response (sec.)]
    Select the number of seconds for determining when to switch Day/Night Mode, when [Day/Night] is set to [Auto]. Day/Night 
    Mode switches when the brightness continues  to exceed or fall below the brightness set in [Switching Brightness] within 
    any of the settings for the  number of seconds selected.
    Select [30] or [60] if bright ness changes frequently, such as  when a light source passes in front  of the camera. Select [5] or 
    [10] if change in brightness is minimal.
    Pan: 180°
