If you need to use a longer VISCA cable than the one provided with the StarLeaf room system, refer to the following cable requirements:

  • VISCA cables are available in ‘crossed’ and ‘straight-through’ configurations; StarLeaf room systems require a straight-through cable
  • The VISCA cable connector must be inserted tightly into the back of the codec. Cables with larger shrouds on the connectors may need to be modified to fit in the codec.


Below is the pinout for the Camera Control connector on the rear of a StarLeaf room system.
