All GigE cameras. Read only.
The Media Access Control (MAC) address is a hardware identifier (or name) that uniquely identifies each node of a network. They are generally hardwired into the electronics and are read-only. Prior to the assignment of an IP address, the MAC address is used to identify the device on the network and to communicate basic information. The MAC address does not contain any information about the network to which the device is connected, so communication with the device is limited to the local area network.
Each Pixelink camera has a unique MAC address along with a unique serial number. The MAC address can be determined by calling PxLGetNumberCamerasEx. The address is read only.
