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 straight-through cable
  • The plugs should seat well into the socket on the rear of the room system. On some room systems, the sockets are slightly recessed behind the back panel; take care that cables with larger shrouds on the connectors are seated correctly into the sockets (you may need to modify the cables)
