NovoCast NC1000 can be plugged into Ethernet via its USB-to-RJ45 cable to access local network. User can connect to organization’s backbone network. It is recommended to use Ethernet connection (when possible) since it gives you better robustness and higher performance.

How to Set up Static IP: Plug Ethernet cable into NovoCast, use USB mouse or touch panel, go to Settings > Device Settings > General > Advanced > Ethernet > Ethernet Configuration.
