Step-by-step guide

Here are the steps to setting up your IPEVO document camera for screen sharing in Zoom.

1. Plug in an IPEVO document camera to your computer via USB. Remember to turn it on if you’re using a VZ-R or VZ-X.

2. Download IPEVO Visualizer software onto your computer. You can download it here. Then, launch it on your computer. Next, select your document camera as the camera source in it.

3. Place your material under the document camera and check its live image in Visualizer. Adjust the multi-jointed stand and camera head of the document camera to get a view that best suits your needs.

4. When you’re ready, launch Zoom on your computer to start or join a meeting. If you don’t have a Zoom account, please follow the steps outlined in the Zoom 101 Sign Up & Download Meeting Client video to sign up for one.

Note: Do not use your document camera as the camera source for your Zoom meeting in this step. Instead, use the computer’s built-in webcam.

5. Select Share Screen located at the bottom of your meeting window.

6. You’ll be given various options for sharing in the pop-up window that appears. Select Visualizer and click the blue Share icon located at the bottom right.

And there you go. Now you can easily share your materials while in a video meeting!
