How do I record video using my SimplicityCam connected to the flat panel?
Recording functionality, when using the SimplicityCam in Stand Alone mode with the SimplicityTouch IFP, may or may not be supported depending on the IFP model. The Camera application on most Generation 3 models allow you can connect the USB of the SimplicityCam directly to the USB port of the panel and record or take still shots. HomeScreen > Applications > Camera > Select either camera or recorder based on your desired outcome. You will want to have a flash drive also plugged in to the panel to save the files you create.
If you have a model that does not support Recording from the android Camera application, please see the following suggestions for using the SimplicityCam directly connected to the USB of the panel:
1) Viewing the document camera image within the XPress application.
To accomplish this, the user opens XPress from the Home Screen (bottom middle icon), select the Camera tool from the annotation tool bar, and drags a diagonal line across the page to open the image. **NOTE - Screencast-O-Matic is not available when using the XPress android application.
2) Taking still shot images using the Camera application.
To accomplish this, the user selects the Camera App which is located under “Applications” from the Home Screen (bottom left icon). When using this function, we recommend having a USB drive
plugged in to the panel as the photos will save directly to the flash drive. The Camera application does not currently support video recording.
Our recommendation for lesson/video recording would be the following:
Using the computer input connected to the IFP:
A user connects the USB of the SimplicityCam directly to their computer and their computer to the flat panel. This allows two easy to use options for the user:
1) Open XSight HD Viewer and use the built in recording functionality OR Screen Cast-O-Matic to create your mp4 (see our YouTube channel - Recordex USA - for more support on using the XSight HD Viewer software).
2) Open XPress, select the Camera tool from the annotation tool bar, and use Screen Cast-O-Matic from the side main menu to record and publish their lessons (see our YouTube channel - Recordex USA - for more support on using the XPress annotation software).
