PrecisionHD 1080p12x

The information on this page applies to the PrecisionHD 1080p12x camera. The camera has DIP switches for video output format setting.

NOTE: The early shipments of the Quick Set C20 came with an interim version of the PrecisionHD 1080p4x camera (the PrecisionHD 1080p4x* camera). The interim version has DIP switches for video output format setting, see the table on this page.

Video output formats

The DIP switches 1 to 5 sets the video output format for the camera. The DIP switches are located under the camera. The default setting is Auto, see the table to the right.

Maximum resolution:

1080p60 for PrecisionHD 1080p12x zoom

1080p30 for PrecisionHD 1080p4x* zoom

1080p30 for HD-SDI**

Line voltage frequency

The camera will automatically detect the line voltage frequency when it is 50 or 60 Hz. If there is a different line voltage, you can set the video output format to a specific value (use the DIP switches) to override the auto frequency detection.

Set the PrecisionHD 1080p DIP switch (country specific setting):

50Hz: 00011, gives 1080p50 (720p50 for HD-SDI)

60Hz: 00100, gives 1080p60 (720p60 for HD-SDI)

Controlling cameras using the VISCA™ protocol

The information in this chapter applies to:

PrecisionHD Camera 1080p12x

PrecisionHD Camera 1080p4x

PrecisionHD Camera 1080p4xS2

NOTE: Some of the VISCA™ commands do not apply to the PrecisionHD 1080p4x/4xS2 cameras. You will find these commands marked with a* (star) throughout this section.

INFORMATON: The VISCA™ commands for PrecisionHD 720p camera is found in the MXP Reference User Guide for System Integrators. Go to: http://www.cisco.com/go/ telepresence/docs

The camera uses an RS-232control interface that resembles the Sony VISCA™ protocol. The VISCA protocol (VIdeoSystemControlArchitecture) is a Sony protocol for synchronized control of multiple video peripherals.

VISCA™ is a trademark of Sony Corporation

RS–232Parameters

At startup, the communication parameters for the RS–232interface must be set to:

9600 bits per second

8 data bits

No parity

1 stop bit

No hardware flow control

No software flow control

All the RS–232parameters except speed are fixed and not user configurable. The speed may be changed by issuing theSpeed command defined on the following pages.

All control bytes are pure binary information, i.e. the control bytes are not ASCII-encoded.

RS–232Commands and inquiries

A list of all the available commands and inquiries together with the result and comments are found in the table on the following pages.

The VISCA™/RS–232control protocol

The codec is using the Sony Visa protocol to control the cameras.

Interfacing the camera

When interfacing to the camera the codec uses an RS-232control interface that resembles the Sony VISCA™ protocol.

Supported cameras

The following Cisco PrecisionHD cameras are supported:

PrecisionHD 1080p12x

PrecisionHD 1080p4x

PrecisionHD 1080p4xS2

Currently there is support for detection of the following third party cameras:

Sony HD1

Sony HD7

VISCA message format

A particular command is recognized by the message information after the address byte.

Message Format

Commands are initiated from the host (i.e. the codec or any other external controller) to the camera.

After a camera has been issued a command, the camera will generate a response. Commands and responses (messages) have the following format:

Address byte (1)

Message bytes (1..14)

Terminator byte (1)

See the illustration for details.

The minimum length of any command or response is 3 bytes:

1.Address byte (1): Let us assume there is one host, i.e. the codec (the host is the unit controlling the camera). The host has address 0. The four least significant bits of the address byte contain the address of the receiver. In the case of a broadcast message, the receiver address must be set to 8. When we are operating a single camera, the address is 1. Hence, address bytes in messages from the host are 0x81, and messages from the camera to the host are 0x90 (the protocol allows for up to 7 cameras).

2.Message bytes (1..14): Any number of bytes containing the actual message information. Bytes may have any value in the range 0...254. The value 255 (i.e. hexadecimal FF) is reserved for the terminating byte.

3.Terminator byte (1): All messages must be terminated with a byte containing all 1’s, i.e. decimal 255 (or hexadecimal FF).

Command and response exchange

When the camera receives a command, it responds with either:

Completion message: 90-5Y-FFReturned by camera when execution of commands and inquiries are completed.

Error packets: 90-6Y-..-FFReturned by camera instead of a

completion message when command or inquiry failed to be executed.

General error messages, unless otherwise specified:

90-6Y-01-FFMessage length error (>14 bytes)

90-6Y-02-FFSyntax error

90-6Y-03-FFCommand buffer full

90-6Y-04-FFCommand cancelled

90-6Y-05-FFNo socket (to be cancelled)

90-6Y-41-FFCommand not executable

Y = socket number

A camera may contain two buffers so that two commands, including the command being executed, can be received.

Note: The PrecisionHD 1080p camera supports a single socket only.

Consequently, the Y always assumes the value Y = 0.

Exceptions to these rules:

An Initialize message will respond as indicated in the Table of Commands (this message is in fact a broadcast message, and any unit other than the host receiving the broadcast message must pass it on).

Do not route commands or replies that are longer than 16 bytes through Sony cameras. The easiest way to avoid this is to put the Cisco cameras first in the chain.

Commands and replies that are longer than 16 bytes are clearly marked below.

NOTE: The information on this page applies to PrecisionHD Camera 1080p12x only.

Video mode selection

The DIP switch selection has priority over the selection made by the CAM_Video_Format command. If the DIP switch is set to auto, theCAM_Video_Format setting will be used. If both are set to auto, resolution will be controlled automatically by EDID.

DIP Switch settings

Switches are numbered 1 to 5. The VISCA column shows the value that must be used when using the CAM_Video_Format command.

NOTE: The DIP switches are only read by the SW at startup/ boot. So if the DIP switches are changed the camera must be rebooted.

If an undefined mode is selected, the output will default to auto.
