A logical number is a user-selectable, variable number, and is always associated with an actual physical input. A physical input number represents an actual BNC input on the rear panel of the CM6800 and is a fixed number.  Within the programming screens and at the operator level the logical number is the number used for reference.

Enter Matrix Programming and navigate to the Logical Camera menu.

PHY: The physical input number represents an actual BNC input on the rear panel of the CM6800 and cannot be changed.

 LOG: Assign a valid logical number (0001-9998) to each physical camera input. A valid number is any number from 0001 to 9998 that has not already been assigned to a physical camera input. 

Example: Physical camera input 22 is assigned a logical number of 0501. To view this camera an operator will do the following:

  1. Enter 501.
  2. Press the CAM key.

Using the new logical camera number:

 If you change a logical camera number in the programming menus, you cannot control the camera until you select the camera number from the keyboard:

  1. Enter the new logical camera number.
  2. Press the CAM key.
