HD Document Camera Instructions

The HD document camera is an imaging device for producing live images of objects placed on a display surface. Objects can be 2-dimensional (printed documents, photos, books, transparencies, slides, etc) or 3-dimensional (chemical beakers, mechanical instruments, sculptures, electronic components, etc).

A. The HD document camera is located on the top of the multimedia lectern.

B. Adjust the camera head if needed so that it is aiming directly downward onto the display area. The camera head can be moved vertically or horizontally to get a close-up view of the document or item being displayed.

C. Locate the touchpanel on the multimedia lectern.

D. Select the HD document camera for projection by pressing the “Document Camera” button in the left column of the touch panel.
