Resolution

The ENC5516 includes a single MUX analog video monitor output. The MUX output is configured using the DS ControlPoint client software by double-clicking on the Output [enc#] - 1 (Output 1 -1, Output 2 - 1, Output 3 - 1...etc) listed in the camera tree under Systems.  Then populate with analog cameras that are from the ENC5516 that matches the Output number. For more detailed information, refer to How do I configure the Digital Sentry analog monitor output using DS ControlPoint?

 Note: The Vout/SPOT video output is not functional and not used. No video on output.
