Instructions to get the USB hub and CoE document camera working with collaboration software.
Web Collaboration Software, USB Microphone and Document Camera Rooms:ECB 1003
CAE labs will have the document camera, doc cam software, and microphone all ready installed on the system.
Connect USB hub to laptop
To connect your laptop to the USB system. Locate the USB hub on the podium near the document camera. You will need to choose between the standard USB cable and a USB-C cable. Check to ensure the cable you have plugged into your laptop is also connected to the USB hub. The cables are color coded to help identify them. The same colors need to be plugged in on both ends. (USB = Blue, USB-C = Orange).
Once you have connected to the USB hub, you will have the ability to utilize the table-top microphone located on the podium (NOTE: please stand within 3-5 ft for optimal audio).
In your software program select the appropriate microphone (there are a few brands we have deployed).
For rooms with a wireless audio system, you will be using a wireless transmitter pack that will provide asynchronous audio to both in person and remote viewers. When the USB is connected to your device, you can import the 'house audio' when choosing 'USB AUDIO CODEC' in either the software program or system preferences.
Using a Wolfvision document camera (VZ-9.4L, VSolution Cam, ...) and sharing your screen
Share your screen, don't use the camera as a default webcam
Mac Users:Mac users may get the document camera to show in 'Photo Booth' or another program.
Once you have the software running, increase the size of the image on your desktop.
Flipped Image in preview?
We have noticed in testing that doccam images will be flipped when previewing. This is actually fine. Most webcams are flipped so when you look at yourself, it seems correct like looking in a mirror. This is what it's doing that for the preview. I believe it should look correct on the remote end, at least that’s what we were seeing in testing.
