Document Camera Considerations with Promethean’s ActivPanel
Have an older document camera? No worries!
You can still use your older equipment with your new ActivPanel by either connecting the document camera by VGA to the ActivPanel directly or using the document camera through your teacher computer as you have been previously doing. Some of the older document cameras require a driver or specific software, so using it through your teacher computer may be required.
Whether you connect your document camera directly to the ActivPanel or route through your teacher computer, you can still use all of the great features such as Capture or Annotate from the panel’s Unified Menu as this floats on top of all sources and apps.
