Customers are often curious about how to set the IP address of the camera so it can be integrated on a network along with meet management computers, scoreboard controllers and other various network devices.
In short, this isn’t possible. When the cameras are loaded into FinishLynx, they are assigned an IP address that is one higher than the capture computer or the last loaded camera.
A capture computer with IP address 192.168.0.5 with assign an IP address of 192.168.0.6 to the first camera loaded. Any subsequent cameras are assigned the next address in the sequence. Therefore, the second camera loaded would be 192.168.0.7, the third camera: 192.168.0.8.
This applies to any EtherLynx or IdentiLynx cameras.
Knowing what IP address is assigned to your camera will help to avoid potential conflicts with other network devices or computers.
