The Split Screen feature is now available for the KODAK Cherish C520/C525 Baby Monitor. Please ensure that you have paired your camera via Wi-Fi with the KODAK Smart Home App to get the latest firmware version to enjoy this feature.
How Does the Split Screen Work?
The KODAK Cherish monitor allows users to split-screen and watches rooms simultaneously. The parent unit can connect to four different cameras simultaneously and stream from two on a single screen. The guide below will show you how to apply the split-screen feature on your monitor.
- Press the menu button on the parent unit. It is located on the top right corner of the device with three horizontal lines.
- Use the Up and Down arrows to navigate the split-screen icon and then click OK.
- If there's only one camera connected, a prompt will appear on the screen. It will bear this message: "Please add one more monitor to use this feature."
- The screen is divided into two by a horizontal bar. The left side shows the current camera, while the right shows the camera number of other connected cameras.
- Use the Up and Down arrow to choose a camera and select OK to apply it. Users must do this step within 10 seconds.
Split Screen Icon Definition
The split-screen mode usually displays three on-screen icons. This helps give details about which camera is playing background music, which room is noisy, etc. The indicators are listed below:
- Sound Indication
The sound indicator resembles a speaker sign. It indicates which camera is playing back music. If none of the cameras are producing audio output at that instant, the icon will not appear on the screen.
- Sound Detection
The sound detection sign appears when there is noise in the selected camera room. Hence, parents can easily know when their babies wake up or cry.
- Camera Numbers
The camera numbers are the numbering tags attached to each camera. For example, if four cameras are connected to the monitor, parents can choose two rooms to monitor at a time. They could be Camera 1 or 2, 3, or 4. Hence, this indicator shows which baby unit is displayed on the screen.
Important Information When Using this Feature.
The audio of the camera on the left screen has a higher priority on the Parent Unit. Therefore, if both cameras have sound simultaneously, you will hear the audio from the left screen camera, whereas the right camera will show the sound detection icon.
- If the left camera has no sound and the right one does, then the right camera's audio will play as normal.
- When split-screen mode, talk mode, the microphone button, left and right arrows and the Pan-Tilt-Zoom function (for C525) are disabled on the Parent Unit.
- All battery/temperature alerts (if any) are for the camera selected and shown on the left screen.
