It is not possible to connect to the camera when the Imaging Edge Remote is active. Quit Remote and then connect to the camera.

Launch the live distribution/web conferencing service on your personal computer.

You may have to install additional software or register an account beforehand.


Change the appropriate setting in the live distribution/web conferencing service to switch the camera to be used from the PC’s built-in camera to the Sony camera.

The setting procedure will differ depending on the service you are using.

For detailed setting instructions, refer to the user’s manual or help page of the service.





The aspect ratio is automatically set to 16:9. It will remain set to 16:9 after using Imaging Edge Webcam, so set it to the previous value if necessary.

We recommend that you disable the sleep mode of your PC when using the Imaging Edge Webcam.

When using Imaging Edge Webcam, do not unplug the USB cable of any USB devices such as a camera or headset, and avoid operations such as releasing the shutter or changing camera settings such as drive mode. If the live view screen is interrupted by such operations, you may be able to recover by performing the following operations.

Turn off the video of the web conferencing system.

From the Windows Start menu, select [Imaging Edge Webcam] → [USB Reset].





Turn off the camera and then turn it on again.

Restart the video of the web conferencing system.

If you are unable to recover by performing the operations above, turn off the camera and restart the PC.

Imaging Edge Webcam does not handle audio. Use your personal computer’s built-in microphone or an external microphone.

If your camera has [USB Power Supply] as an option, we recommend that you set it to [On].
