Camera Repositioning

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Apr 24, 2012

Reworking camera position is one of the most frustrating aspects of the install job. Not only is it inefficent and frustrating for both the customer and integrator, the issue can easily be prevented with a little forethought. In this note, we discuss the value in identifying and documenting camera views before starting an install.
