Perform a factory reset

Administrators can use the Admin panel to perform a factory reset and restore the configuration of Pearl-2 to the manufacturer's original default settings. For a list of affected settings, see The Factory default configuration preset and Factory reset.

Performing a factory reset erases all your input port settings (video and audio), channel configuration, network settings, configuration presets, all locally saved media files and recordings from Pearl-2.

Consider applying a factory default configuration preset if you want to preserve your uploaded media files, configuration presets, and channel recordings, see Configuration presets.
