Polarity for wiring DC power input. Information not clear within I/O manual.

Resolution

By default, all Spectra IV camera models have the Line Sync setting to OFF for internal synchronization to occur. This means that when using DC voltage, there is no need to configure the camera's Line Sync. Please reference Page # 35 of the C3463 I/O Manual for further information about Line Sync.

DO NOT USE V-SYNC UNLESS CONNECTING SPECTRA IV TO OLDER MATRIX SWITCHER WITH V-SYNC ENABLED.
