Control privileges procedure

Although multiple clients can simultaneously connect to the camera , multiple clients cannot simultaneously control the camera. Consequently only the client who currently holds the control privileges can control the camera. The use of backlight adjustment and presets is also limited to the client who currently holds the control privileges.

aCamera is not controlled


bAwaiting control privilege
reservation. The number
beside the person icon
shows the estimated time
until control privileges are granted.
However, you may be granted
control privileges before this number
reaches "0" because other users
may cancel camera control or
withdraw from the queue

cYou have been granted
control privileges. The
number beside the clock
icon is your period of
exclusive control.

dYou can retain control
privileges even though
your period of exclusive
control has expired. This
is because there are no camera
control requests from other clients.

eFor some reason, you
have been disconnected
from the camera control
server, you could not
connect to the camera control
at startup, or your connection was
not permitted. The status display
panel turns red.
