Playing a Presentation with Viewer
Viewer is a Data Projector built-in application for playing back image and movie files that
are stored on a memory device that is currently loaded via the Data Projector’s USB port
(USB memory device, memory card loaded in a USB card reader, etc.)
Viewer starts up automatically when a supported USB memory device is plugged into the
Data Projector USB port, or when a memory card is loaded into a USB card reader that
is connected to the Data Projector’s USB port.
Note
z All of the operations in this section are performed using the Data Projector’s remote
controller keys or the Data Projector’s keys.
z For details about USB memory devices, see “Supported USB Memory Devices” (page
13).
To connect a USB memory device to the Data Projector
1
Turn on the Data Projector.
2
Plug the USB memory device that contains the data you want to project with
Viewer into the Data Projector’s USB port.
z Wait until the Data Projector’s POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit green.
z After the Data Projector detects the USB memory device, it will start up Viewer
automatically and display a menu of files (page 30) or menu of drives (page 29) on the
USB memory device.
Note
z Viewer will not start up automatically if the Data Projector’s plug-and-play feature is
turned off. In this case, you will need to press the [INPUT] key to switch the input
source to the USB memory device. For more details about the plug-and-play setting,
see “Setup Menu Contents” in the User’s Guide.
z Only files of formats that are recognized by the Data Projector (jpg, jpeg, jpe, bmp,
avi, mp4) appear in the file menu. Note that even if a file appears in the file menu,
it does not mean that the file can be displayed or played back by the Data Projector.
z The file menu displays USB memory device contents in the following sequence:
folders, movie files, image files. For details about how to play back a movie file, see
“Using Viewer to Play a Movie” (page 39).

Viewer Troubleshooting
Some folders and/or files are not displayed in the file menu
• All the folders and/or files contained in a folder will not be displayed if there are more
than 999 folders and/or files inside the folder. If this happens, reduce the number of
folders and/or files in the folder.
• Viewer supports up to 10 folder nesting levels on a USB memory device or memory
card. Anything past the 10th nested folder is not displayed by Viewer.
How can I get images to appear more quickly?
When you select a BMP image or a large image file recorded with a digital camera on
the Viewer’s image menu, it takes considerable time before the image appears. To ensure
that images appear quickly during your presentation, use EZ-Converter 1.1 to convert the
images to presentation data. This will cause images to be converted to JPEG images,
which appear on the display more quickly.
I am having a hard time getting the results I want when playing a
slideshow.
• Use EZ-Converter 1.1 to convert the images you want to use in the slideshow to
presentation data.
• In order to start a slideshow by highlighting an image file in a folder that is not a
presentation data folder, you first need to use the Viewer Setup menu to configure
slideshow settings (Slideshow Display Interval, Slideshow Transition Effect, Image
Switching, Slideshow Repeat).

z If the document camera is positioned correctly, position adjustment will end automatically
and the dialog box will close. At this time the monitor screen (the image being picked
up by the document camera) will be projected.
z If the document camera is not positioned correctly, a message prompting you to adjust
the document camera position will appear. Follow the instructions shown in the message

Place the document whose image you want to project onto the document
camera’s document stage.
z Be sure to place the document in the center of the
stage, and do not let any part of the document
extend off the edges of the stage.
z When placing a landscape orientation document onto
the document stage, the top of the page should face
towards the camera stand.
z Initially the monitor image will be projected, and so
the image will appear a bit fuzzy.
z When the document camera senses that the document on the stage is not being moved,
it will record its image and switch from the fuzzy monitor image to a high-resolution
image (recorded image) automatically.

Recorded Image
Now you can replace the document currently on the stage with another one.
z This will switch to the recorded image of the next document automatically.
Note
Step 5 above is what happens while the Data Projector’s YC Camera application is
configured with its initial default settings. The recorded image will not switch
automatically if you have changed the “Operation Mode” setting of the YC Camera
application to “Manual Capture”. For more information, see “YC Camera Application
Setup Menu Contents” on page 57.
