Instructions for using an Epson document camera as a webcam and microphone:

  • Rooms with this model of document camera have already been connected to the instructor station via USB.
  • In Zoom, the Epson camera should now come up as the default for both Audio and Video, if not, simply select it from the list.

Tips and Troubleshooting:

If your camera image appears upside down

  • Switch the instructor station back to Doc Cam on the control panel mounted to the station
  • Press the Menu button
  • On the first tab, Image, rotate the camera 180 degrees
  • Press Menu again to close
  • Switch the instructor station back to the computer on the control panel
  • You may need to disable video and turn it back on, or leave the meeting and rejoin

If audio isn't working

  • Double check to see if Epson is the selected device
  • As an alternative, join either by using Zoom's "Call Me" feature, or dial in from the phone on the instructor station (remember to dial 9 first)

If pointing at the camera at a whiteboard to display and the text appears backwards

  • There is no issue, this is a mirroring option in Zoom just for you; all of the participants will be able to read the writing normally
  • If you want to change the view for yourself, go to Zoom settings, choose Virtual Background, and at the bottom, change the option for "Mirror my video"

Option 2 - Audio and screen sharing from instructor station computer

All classrooms on Dayton's Bluff, Midway, and Minneapolis campuses have a phone at the instructor station that can be used for Zoom audio

  • Join either by using Zoom's "Call Me" feature, or dial in from the phone (remember to dial 9 first)
  • Used in conjunction with screen sharing, this is a common way to facilitate participants when a web camera is not available

Option 3 - Full audio, video, and screen sharing from laptop

University issued laptops and many personal laptops come built-in with a webcam and microphone. Connect this into any instructor station with the provided cabling, and you'll be ready to go. 

Tips and Troubleshooting:

If the microphone isn't working well

  • As an alternative, join either by using Zoom's "Call Me" feature, or dial in from the phone on the instructor station (remember to dial 9 first)
