Connecting a Wired Device:
Use these steps to display a device that is hooked up using an HDMI cable; this includes the document camera or a laptop.
|1. On the Control Panel under the Cynap Input menu, select the device you want to display from the Cynap onto the projector. You can select from your document camera, laptop connected with HDMI or VGA, or Blu-ray player. |
Note: Your control panel may look different than the image on the right.
|2. On the Cynap screen, tap the screen and select the [ + ] button.|
|3. Then, select Cynap Input to add the device previously selected on the Control panel.|
|4. Your selected device will appear on the Cynap screen. If you are not in mirror mode, where the instructor screen is mirrored on the main screen, you can send the image over to the main projector screen by tapping the bottom menu of the window on the Cynap and choosing the Send to Projector button.|
Note: OIT recommends using Mirror mode to make things simpler. If you use Mirror mode, make sure you go to your home screen on the control panel and turn the system off, then turn the system back on at the beginning of class. This will reset your PIN code for Cynap so that previous users will not have the PIN code.
