The following tables list the cables that can be used in an extended Vicon Vantage system and that are in addition to those described in Simple Vicon Vantage system cables.

You can use this information to identify the correct cables and connection points to use when setting up your Vantage system to include third-party devices such as analog capture devices, synchronized output devices, remote triggering devices, and genlock/timecode video devices.

For details of this type of system, see Extended Vicon Vantage system (add cameras and third-party devices).
