Microphone & Viewing frame

This is the approximate field-of-view of the camera.
Neewer NW412

The microphone requires a pre-amp with phantom power. This is the gold box (Neewer NW412). For the microphone to work properly, the PH (phantom power) LFF, and Power switches all need to be in on/up position. The green 48V and red On lights will be illuminated when properly functioning.

The gain knob has been properly adjusted for the average speaking volume and should be set at ~2 0'Clock.

When speaking from the presentation location, you should notice the green SIG light blinking as well green Audio lights on the Studio Station 100 flashing. If you happen to notice the yellow CLIP light on the gold box flashing, it means that the GAIN is too higher. You can either speak more softly or decrease the gain by turning the GAIN know counter-clockwise
