How do I configure the Genex Multiplexer MX4000 Series to switch cameras for viewing and PTZ (Pan, Tilt, and Zoom) control on the SPOT monitor without changing the MAIN monitor's multiview display?

Issue

You can watch up to 16 cameras simultaneously on the MAIN monitor screen, while watching a full-screen view of any one camera and controlling PTZ’s on the SPOT monitor.

Resolution

To program the main system parameters:
 

  1. Press the VIEW button for approximately three seconds until the System Setup menu appears. Type the password, if requested. The currently selected menu item blinks.
  2. Use the arrow buttons to move between items on the screen.
  3. Do one of the following when the menu item you desire is highlighted (blinking):
  •  If a menu item has more than one option, press the +/- button to cycle through the options to select the one you want.
  • If a menu item has only one option, press the +/- button to select it.

Note that just parking on the option does not change it; you must also press the +/- button.

Use the arrow buttons to highlight ADVANCED SETUP, and press the +/- button. The Advanced System Setup menu appears.

 

 

  • Set the Main Monitor Display Responds to field at NONE.
  • Spot Monitor Display field at Blank
  • Responds to field at NONE

Exit both menus and verify SPOT monitor control.
