Resolution

The CM9760-DMR data manager supports 64 cameras in PTZ expansion mode.  The camera dip switches should have a P address of 1-16 on each of the available CM9760-DMR data manager ports.  When programming the camera addresses in system manager, the cameras will be addressed 1-64 depending on the CM9760- DMR data manager port they are connected to.
