PMCL417/419 HB models have shaky video.

Issue

The PMCL417/419 has shaky video, mostly seen with the Spectra and Spectra Mini series cameras

Product Line

Pelco Cameras, Pelco Video Management, Pelco Transmission & Power

Environment

  • PMCL417/419 HB models
  • Spectra IV ALL analog models
  • Spectra Mini ALL analog models

Cause

There was a sync issue with Spectra and Spectra Mini cameras that, when used with the PMCL417HB or the PMCL419HB model monitors, either monitor would display shaky video; or video that shifted side-to-side. This did not affect larger monitors. The cause was a sync issue with the Effinet monitor and the Spectra analog series cameras.

Resolution

Any PMCL417 or PMCL419 HB series models made after April of 2014 should be fine. Effinet has updated the monitor's firmware to resolve this issue. If seen in the field please, contact Jeremy Cates for the firmware version.
