    Using the CV30 camera with HDL410 camera switching

    Article summary

    The Nureva® CV30 camera is optimized for classrooms and meeting rooms, making it ideal for pairing with a Nureva HDL410 audio system and camera switching.

    Mount the CV30 for optimal coverage

    Usually, a wall, tripod or display mounting will place the CV30 close enough to presenters and attendees for optimal performance. In extra-large rooms, a ceiling mount may be the best option to keep the camera within 8 meters of subjects.

    Most off-the-shelf ceiling mounts will support the CV30 camera. The camera only functions in an upright position, so it may be necessary to use the mounting bracket included in the CV30 kit.

    1. Install the ceiling mount according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

    2. Fix the CV30 mounting bracket to the ceiling mount.

    3. Attach the CV30 to the mounting bracket using the screw included in the CV30 kit.

    Use USB over Ethernet extensions

    The CV30 camera kit provides a powered USB 3.0 hub and a 32.8' (10 m) USB 3.0 extender cable. The hub and extender cable support a 4K video stream and power delivery up to 600 mA at 5 V.

    Some installations may need a longer USB extender than that provided with the CV30. USB over Ethernet solutions that comply with HDBaseT standards are recommended in this situation. See the HDBaseT website for more information.

    If it’s unclear whether an extender solution meets HDBaseT standards, another option is to compare it against the specifications for the validated options listed below.

    • Solutions with the same specifications should also work with the CV30 extender cable.

    Focus the CV30 camera on a designated zone

    Use the CV30 remote control to adjust the camera frame to focus on the designated area in the room. Adjustments include pan, tilt and zoom.

    The adjusted camera frames can then be saved to one of three preset views. These preset view settings are useful to have should the room configuration and zones change.

    Optimize tracking performance

    It is important to set up the tracking area and modes to achieve optimal tracking performance. For example, to track a presenter at the front of the room, the tracking area would be set to the top 2/3 or top 1/2 of the frame. This will reduce the chance of audience movement being tracked.

    • Angle the camera to isolate the person (or people) to be tracked and minimize distractions in the frame.

    • Use the CV30 on-screen display interface to specify a tracking area that includes only the intended people to be followed.

    • Choose the proper tracking mode according to the scenario and the number of people to track. For example, use manual or auto tracking for a single person and use group tracking for a team.

    Connect a third CV30 to the INOGENI CAM230

    The INOGENI® CAM230 camera selector can be integrated with the HDL410 system and up to three CV30 cameras. This integration allows automatic camera switching based on zones set up using Nureva Console cloud and the unified coverage map. The CAM230 offers ports for two USB cameras and one HDMI camera.

    Start by connecting two CV30 cameras to the CAM230 using the USB-A ports. If a third CV30 is to be used, a USB video device class to HDMI converter or adapter is needed. Examples of converters and adapters are listed below.

    Using a single CV30 remote control

    For installations that include multiple CV30 cameras, it is recommended remote controls are disabled for CV30 cameras that do not need adjustments. The best practice is to enable or disable the remote control on one camera at a time by disconnecting the USB cable from each of the other cameras.
