Changing shots between cameras is accomplished in Zoom (or a different video conferencing application-- a similar procedure will apply in other conferencing applications).
Step 1: Check the cameras. Are they on?
If they're not, Zoom won't see them.
The Meeting OWL should always be on, so long as it is plugged in. Learn more about the Meeting OWL used in a hyflex teaching scenario or online synchronous teaching scenario.
The AViPAS PTZ camera has a small green light that is illuminated on its base. If you don’t see that light on, turn the camera on with either the touchscreen or the remote control (as provided). Learn more about the AViPAS camera.
The AVer document camera's power is always on, so long as its cable is plugged in. Learn more about the AVer document camera.
Step 2: Choose your desired camera inside of Zoom
In Zoom, to switch cameras in Zoom during a session, click on the circumflex next to the camera icon in the lower left portion of the meeting controls toolbar. This brings up a pop up menu:
Your actual menu may vary slightly than the one pictured here.
In the resulting menu, under Select a Camera, select the camera you want to switch to.
