masking dedicated micros dome.
Hi,
we have a site with a 9ch DS2 DVR and keyboard fitted, 8 statics, one PTZ. - none of it installed by us.

we need to mask off some of the PTZ's view. every single PTZ i've come across so far has the option to do this digitally so i assume this one does too.
the PTZ is made by dedicated micros (DM), as is the DVR and keyboard but i'm unsure of the model no as its impossible to get to it without erecting a platform.

i couldn't even find a way to get into the cameras menu (assuming it has one) let alone program masking! is there a way to digitally mask areas, or will we have to put some gaffa in the housing (which would be a pain to do)?

Thanks in advance!

-Luke

I was under the impression that the masking was done at the DVR end dude. :-)

9ch is a bit of a weird one aswell come to think of it.

even on PTZs? even my very old vista powerdome has a menu in it which you can use to set masks. it does it so that as the camera pans round, the mask moves to continue to mask the selected area. but even on that, it took a bit of fiddling with buttons to get the menu up! :/

looks like we're gonig to have to hire a platform and just put some gaffa tape on the inside of the dome glass :(

ps. it might be a 10 channel thinking about it.

yep, doesn't look possible to do it in the PTZ camera.
platform and tape it is!
