A list of proposed additional spaces to be completed in Summer 2023
Below are the settings for Zoom to utilize the camera and mic in the room. This is on a "per user" basis (each individual who logs in must set it up for themselves) but you should only need to set it up once per semester.
Click the up arrow next to the camera icon and select "Video settings". Change the following:
Click the up arrow next to the microphone icon and select "Video settings". Change the following:
Click the up arrow next to the microphone icon and make sure "Dell P2418HT" or "HDMI splitter" is selected as the speaker. You may need to run the "speaker & microphone" test in zoom - see "Troubleshooting" below.
Each room is equipped with a touchpanel that controls the camera system. Click the "camera controls" button on the touchpanel and utilize the onscreen buttons to control the camera.
Enable the "auto-track" function of the camera to have it automatically follow you as you walk around the room. (currently you cannot track in 60-180 Griffin Gate)
Each camera has 4 pre-determined "views" that can be triggered via the preset buttons. These correspond to:
You can also manually move the camera and zoom in/out as needed.
Each room is equipped with a USB document camera that can be displayed within zoom.
You can show 2 cameras in zoom at once (Doc Cam and Room Cam)
The only way to pair a remote and in-person student within the same group is to have the in-person student use a personal device (laptop, phone) to join the Zoom meeting. You can then place them both in the same meeting room. NOTE: The in-person student must have their microphone and speakers muted anytime they are not in a meeting room, or their device will cause feedback.
Make sure the participant can hear audio from their computer and zoom and that their speakers aren't muted. They may wish to play music on Youtube and "test speaker and mic" on their zoom to confirm they are hearing audio (click up arrow next to the mic icon)
Check Your Zoom:
Make sure you have selected the correct mic (noted in the table at the top of this page) by clicking the up arrow next to the microphone icon
Test the mic by clicking the up arrow next to the microphone icon and select "test speaker & microphone". A sound will begin playing in zoom, if you do not hear it in the room, click "try next device" until you hear the sound through the room speakers. Click Next and do the same process for the microphone.
Click on the up arrow next to the camera icon and choose "settings". Make sure "HD Video" is selected and "Mirror Video" is not.
