The three video servers allow the connection of analog cameras to the video server using co-axial cable, which then serves the video to N2KView via Ethernet. The cameras require a separate 12VDC power supply.

Connection of IP cameras requires knowledge of computer networks to allocate an IP address to each camera. The camera is identified by N2KView using this address (please refer to the N2KView User's Manual for more information). In simple networks, the IP address can be permanently set inside the camera; in more complex networks a server can dynamically allocate the IP address to the camera, and the camera addressed though its domain name.
