Vidi 100/150 handheld remote functions

Remote control

The Vidi 100 and 150 cameras ship with a handheld infrared (IR) remote control, which controls the camera functions described in this article. Note: The Vidi 150 camera is identical in design to the 100 but comes with an additional camera autotracking feature. The autotracking can be disabled using the remote, making the 150 functionally identical to the Vidi 100 if desired.
