How to control the document camera

The majority of the classrooms with document camera integration have mobile carts for remote and hybrid teaching, so the document camera will simply appear as the webcam in Zoom on the instructor's station.  

In MH*247, there is a pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) classroom camera.  To toggle between the PTZ and document camera, you can either press ALT+N on the keyboard, or click the arrow in the Stop Video button on Zoom and select the USB Video Camera for AverVision Digital Presenter 2.  To toggle back to the classroom camera, press ALT+N, or choose NewTek NDI Video.

You may need to go into Zoom settings and uncheck the Mirror my video setting:

If the document camera does not appear, you may need to press the CAMERA/PC button on the document camera to tell the camera to connect to the computer.  The location of the button is different on different models:
