Step-by-step guide

Here are the steps to setting up your IPEVO document camera with Google Hangouts.

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. Open Google Chrome on your computer. If Google Chrome has not been installed on your computer, please follow the steps outlined here to install it.

3. To open Google Hangouts, type hangouts.google.com into the address bar. Alternatively, you can go to Google apps located at the top right of the browser page and select the Hangouts app in the list of apps that appear.

4. Sign in to your Google account. If you do not have a Google account, please follow the steps outlined here to sign up for one.

5. Choose Video Call.

7. Click Settings located at the top right, and select your document camera as the camera source in Video.

8. If you need to rotate your preview image, simply rotate the camera head of your document camera. Or, for VZ-R and VZ-X, you can also press the Rotate button on them.

9. If your document camera comes with a built-in microphone, you can use that as the audio source for your online meetings. To do so, select your document camera as the audio source in Microphone.

10. Click Done located at the bottom right of the settings page.

11. Click the Invite People icon located at the top right. You can then invite people to your meeting by either entering their names/emails or sharing the meeting link with them.

Now you’re ready for your online meetings!
