When the monitor is connected to the
MONITOR OUT connector of the remote
control unit
The MONITOR connector (BNC type) of the
RM-B170/B750 outputs the same signal as that
from the TEST OUT connector on the camcorder.
Use the black cable supplied with the RM-B170/
B750 to connect the monitor to the MONITOR
connector on the RM-B170/B750.
When the remote control unit is
disconnected from the camcorder
The camcorder settings return to the settings in
effect before the remote control unit was
connected.
Structure of the paint adjustment data
The non-volatile memory of the camcorder used
for storing paint adjustment data consists of two
regions as shown below: one is the "independent
data region" that is used when a remote control
unit is not connected, and the other is the "remote
control data region" that is used when a remote
control unit is connected. Paint adjustment data is
automatically selected and output to the camera
section depending on whether or not a remote
control unit such as the RM-B170 is connected.

Thus, when a remote control unit is connected to
the camcorder, the effective data region is
switched to the "remote control data region" and
the settings of the paint adjustment that were in
effect the last time the remote control unit was
used are recalled.
The settings of the absolute value rotational
1)
controls
and absolute value switches
overwritten by those on the remote control unit
after the remote control unit is connected.
When the remote control unit is disconnected
from the camcorder, the "independent data
region" becomes effective. Thus the camcorder
will return to the settings that were in effect
before the remote control unit was connected.
1) Absolute value rotational controls: The data
corresponding to the angular position of controls is
output. Rotational controls for which the data
corresponding to the amount of their rotation is output
are called relative value controls.
2) Absolute value switches: Like toggle switches or
slide switches (except momentary switches), the
switches (or knobs) whose positions must coincide
with their functions are called absolute value switches.
When RM COMMON MEMORY on the CAM
CONFIG 2 page of the MAINTENANCE menu
is set to "ON", you can use settings of the paint
adjustment data stored in the independent data
region even if you connect the remote control
unit. In this case, the settings stored in the
independent data region will be renewed when
you change the settings on the remote control
unit. Thus, the settings of the paint data made
with the remote control unit can be retained even
if the remote control unit is removed. However, if
the switch position on the remote control unit
differs from the one on the camcorder, the switch
position on the camcorder takes precedence over
that on the remote control unit.
Also, it is possible to keep the settings that are in
effect before you connect the remote control unit.
In this case, you should set the control knob to the
relative value mode on the remote control unit.
For details, refer to the operation manual supplied
with the remote control unit.
