Using the Flip Menu feature

CV30 camera with firmware version 9.1.41 or newer
Last Updated: May 25th, 2022

The CV30 camera provides an on-screen display (OSD) menu that allows access to the camera settings.  A user can browse the OSD menu and configure the settings using the remote control.

When you use a video-conferencing application the default local user view is presented as a mirror image. This appears natural to the user, as their left hand is on the left and their right hand is on the right. The side effect of this is that the OSD menu is also mirrored, making the text hard to read.

Flip Menu option

Starting with firmware version 9.1.41, the CV30 provides an easy-to-use setting inside the OSD menu, called Flip Menu. This setting changes the orientation of the OSD menu, without affecting the default view of the video in the conferencing application. The OSD menu can have the right orientation while the self-view remains natural at the same time. 

Using the Flip Menu option

The OSD menu orientation can be turned on or off using the remote control while the on-screen display (OSD) is open. 

If multiple cameras are used, ensure that the CV30 is active

  • Press Menu on the remote to launch on the OSD
  • Navigate to Flip Menu and press the Left or Right arrow
  • Adjust any additional settings from the OSD
  • Navigate back to the main OSD menu
  • Move the cursor to Exit and press the Home button or press the Menu to exit


After turning on the Flip Menu option the local user will see the OSD menu in the correct orientation, while the remote participant sees the mirror image
