Hi, this video will show you how to use a document cameraalso known as a doc cam or visual presenter.
Now, a document cameralike this one is a tool used to present paper documents,transparencies or even 3d objects to your entire class.
Similar to an overhead, the document camera captures an imageand with the help of a projector displays it for your entire class to see.
In this video you'll learn the basics of setting upand using the document camera.
This document camera comes on a cartbut there may already be a conveniently installed document camerain your classroom.
First, to set up the document cameralocate the power cord wrapped around the cart and plug it intoa nearby power outlet.
Next, plug the VGA cable from the black boxinto the VGA input on the document cam.
Here's what the VGA cable looks like and here's what the VGA input looks like.
Now press and hold the power button on the doc camto turn it on.
On the black box, turn on the AMX touch panel by touchinganywhere on the screen and select the correct source for the document camera.
This should be labeled laptop.
The projector will turn onand once it has warmed up you will see the image captured by the documentcamera.
You can adjust the camera head and the light baras desired.
Depending on what type of object you're showing,you may want to turn on or off the light.
To turn the light on or off,you can press the down button on the directional pad next to the LCD screen.
Speaking of the LCD screen, you can use thisas a reference when making adjustments to whatever object you're showing.
On the side of the camera head is the zoom dial.
To zoom in or out just turnit from one side to the other.
Now the camera will try to autofocus, but if it's not focusing right just pressthe autofocus buttonon the zoom dial.
Once you have finished using the document camera,power it off and return the camera head in the light bar to their originalposition.
