Camera Installation

Extension Cord (Optional)

  • An extension cord is not always necessary, but if there’s no power outlet within 5 feet of your camera, you might need one to power the device. The camera can’t function without it.
  • 3-Prong Extension Cord

Audio Cord (Optional)

  • If you are planning on adding additional commentary to your livestreams, you’ll want to make sure you have a standard, 3.5mm, audio cord on hand.

If you’re mounting from a pole or another structure other than a pressbox, you may need some additional hardware. Check out our specific dimensions and recommendations.
