The document camera located in your classroom allows you to easily display documents, objects, and simple demonstrations to an entire classroom and/or lecture hall.  

Key Features:

  • Zoom wheel, which allows for closer details of the images or objects being projected
  • Continuous auto-focus that adjusts as you zoom in and out to keep your image in clear focus
  • LCD preview
  • A brightly lit working surface
  • Loop-pull up for easy setup
  • Freeze frame, which freezes the image displayed through the projector system

How to Use the Document Camera:

  • Lift up the document camera with the loop-pull and the camera will automatically turn on.  
  • Place your document or demonstration on the working surface 
  • Ensure auto-focus is enabled to have a continuous clear presentation

The camera in your classroom can be controlled by the Control Panel in your room. You should see a Camera control button on the panel. On this button, you can pan, tilt, and zoom in with your camera. Cameras may have preset controls that will move them to a set spot and zoom. Try out the controls available to you in your room.

Tip: if you are zoomed in, the pan and tilt will be more pronounced. Zoom out to have more control over the movement of the camera.

Many of these cameras have been set up to work with the Cynap or the Classroom Supplied Computer in your classroom.

Depending on the type of camera in your classroom, you may not see all the controls you have here. If your classroom has a webcam, that will not have camera controls associated with it and may be directly connected to an attached computer in the room. 


The Blu-ray player is located inside the instructor podium and the basic controls area available on the control panel.

The Blu-ray player can play Blu-rays, standard DVDs and Music CDs coded for Region 1 - Canada, the United States and U.S. territories.

Getting Started

  1. Begin by using the control panel to turn the projection system on. If your classroom has multiple projectors, there will be more than one projection option at the top of the control panel.
  2. To enable the Blu-ray player, select which projector you wish to display the Blu-ray/DVD through and select DVD Player option.  
  3. Load your Blu-ray/DVD into the player.
  4. Use the control panel to access the menu controls and select what you'd like to play.

See this example for how the DVD controls will look on your control panel. Notice you can play, stop, pause, rewind, fast-forward and step ahead. You also have a subtitles on/off option. Use the circular menu for moving through the on-screen menu on your DVD.
