If you have a slide show or other visual material that you would like to have in the background of your presentation, open that material on the computer at the front of the room. If you only have one USB drive, copy the presentation material to the computer at the front of the room first.
To turn on the TV, the power button is on the right side of the screen at the bottom. The image from the iMac should be displayed there automatically once both are on.
To begin recording a presentation, plug a USB drive into the USB hub at the back of the room.
The screen should change to a display of the camera output.
When you are ready to begin recording press the button. You will receive a 5 second count down before the recording begins.
While recording your presentation, the display at the back of the room will have significant lag but don't worry, this will not be in the recording.
When you are ready to end your recording press the button again. Finalizing the recording will take a few seconds. The screen will notify you when the recording has been completed and it is safe to unplug your USB drive.
If you wish to view your recording, you can open it on the computer at the front of the room or elsewhere. The output format is mp4, and filenames will begin with "obs_recorded_"
*If you do not see Volumes, try clicking on the drop down in the top center of the popup - it should be under Recent. If you cannot find Volumes, please let library IT staff know.
