The DZ-3600U functions in a multitude of capacities, serving as a document camera for
presentations when used with a projector, as a scanner for desktop publishing applications or
as a videoconferencing camera.
• Versatile
Record anything from flat documents to 3-dimensional objects, OHP transparencies, negative
films and others. Just turn the camera head to capture white board images or to pan a
conference room.
• Remote Controls
You can conduct a computer-driven presentation without having to touch the computer, if it
is linked via a USB cable, since you can control it from the DZ-3600U’s remote control or
control panel.
• All the Advantages of Traditional Visualizers Plus More
It is also equipped with video out ports like conventional visualizers, making it possible to
monitor the video feed from the camera in real-time and to conduct a presentation without a

it at the monitor or screen on which images are being displayed will not
work.
Remote Control Sensor
Even if people understand this intellectually, once they get up in front of
a real audience, many end up pointing the remote control at the screen
and clicking with all their might. We highly recommend that you plan an
on-site rehearsal before starting a presentation.
•••␣ Note •••
• The effective range of the remote control from the remote control sensor is
approximately 16 ft. (5 m) at 120 degrees horizontally and 30 degrees
vertically.
Check the Battery Charge Prior to Use
The cause of a remote control not responding at all during a presentation
is generally an insufficient battery charge. Remember to always check the
battery charge before you need the remote control. Keep an extra set of
batteries handy if you are uncertain about the remaining charge. See
Changing the Remote Control Batteries (p. 109) for instructions.

Assembly
This chapter explains the most fundamental and important operating procedures step by step. We encourage you to try each step as you read about it.
!!! Important !!!
• This chapter assumes that you have correctly set up the DZ-3600U for
use with a computer and installed Presentation Software. If you have
not yet done this, follow the instructions in Chapter 1, Setup for Operation with a Computer, before resuming the steps below.
• Do not place the equipment on an unsteady table or object subject to
vibration. Movement of the camera head or filmed object and changes in
lighting may corrupt the image capture.
• Skip this and the following page if the three arms (two front lights and
one camera arm) have already been erected. Start from Turning On the
Power (P.28).
1.
Gently remove the cover
from the main unit if it
is on.
2.
Facing the front of the
main unit, lift up the right
front light.
3.
Lift up the left front light.
26
Assembly
4.
Push the arm lock
release lever, which

7.
Orient the camera head so
that the lens points directly
onto the object stage.
• Check to make sure that the
switch for the closeup lens on the
right of the camera head is set to
On (p. 97).
27
Turning On the Power
Turn on the power of each device in the correct sequence.
1.
Press the power switch on the main
unit to set it to the ( | ) position.
• All the indicators on the control panel will
light for about 20 seconds after the power
is turned on while the main unit
initializes itself. It will indicate the ready
state when only the power indicator and a
few other indicators remain lit.
POWER
2.
Turn on the other devices that you’ll
be using (computer monitor,
computer CPU, projector, etc.).
• Actually, there is no predetermined order
in which the main unit, computer and
projector has to be turned on.
28
Starting the Software
If you have set Presentation Software to start automatically (see step 8 at
page 21) after Windows has initialized as described in Chapter 1, the following window will display. If this is the case, proceed directly to the next page.
The toolbar will vanish
from the display after a
few moments. There is
no need for concern.
This is discussed in
Chapter 3.
If the above window does not automatically appear and only the Windows
desktop displays (a shortcut to the program was not placed in Window’s
Startup folder), use the following procedures to start the program.
Click the Windows
[Start] button on
the taskbar and
select [Programs],
[Canon DZ-3600U]
and [Presentation].
Mastering Basic Operations

• Presentation Software
will start and display
the window above.
!!! Important !!!
• Do not detach the USB cable or turn off the main unit while an application program is running.
•••␣ Note␣ •••
• If you wish to stop Presentation Software from automatically starting when
you run Windows, click the Windows [Start] button and select [Settings] and
[Taskbar]. Click the [Start Menu Programs] tab, then click the [Remove] tab.
Open the [Startup] folder from the list that displays, select [DZ-3600U
Presentation] and click the [Remove] button.
29
Placing Objects
Find a document or other object and place it at the center of the object stage,
the white translucent portion.
1.
Place the document or object
in the center of the object
stage, orienting it as shown
in the illustration.
Is the document or object displayed correctly in the large screen monitor,
projector screen or your computer monitor? If it does not display, see
Chapter 5, Troubleshooting.
Now try putting your hand on the document or object. Notice how the
display changes in real time. The movement may appear slightly irregular
on the screen. This real-time display is referred to as the ‘preview’ mode.
More details about this are contained in Chapter 3. At this point, it is
sufficient to confirm that the real-time display is working.
•••␣ Note •••
• Please note that the minor decrease in image quality and irregularity of
movement is due to the limitations imposed by the transfer rate of the USB
cables. The difference in quality between images captured in still mode and
preview mode is so great as to preclude comparison.
30
A Few of the Basics
We will now introduce you to a few procedures involving the remote control.
!!! Important !!!
• Aim the remote control at the sensor on the camera head to execute
commands. For details, see the section entitled Important Instructions
for the Remote Control (P.23).

••• Note •••
Mastering Basic Operations
• Each of the functions introduced in this section, such as zooming, can also
be controlled from the main unit’s control panel or your computer. This
explanation in this chapter is written on the premise that you will probably
use the remote control in an actual presentation. For instructions for
controlling the DZ-3600U from the control panel or a computer, see the
respective explanations in Chapter 3.
• In this chapter, we explained how one image is captured and displayed. In
fact, more than one image can be captured and saved onto the computer
disks. See Chapter 3 for more detail on the wide array of DZ-3600U
functions.

You will note the high resolution of this image compared to the previous
real-time images.
Now try placing you hand on the document or object in the same manner
as before. Note that nothing will change in the display. That is because
the display is not currently showing a real-time image. Instead, it is
showing an image that has been loaded into the computer. The DZ-3600U
is now in what we call the ‘still’ mode.
The difference between the preview and still modes is a key concept for
operating the DZ-3600U with Presentation Software. Keep this concept in
mind as you read further.
•••␣ Note •••
• The image quality (fineness or resolution of the image) can be set to one of
two settings. Chapter 3 discusses this in greater detail.

About the Bundled Software
This topic features the two programs bundled with the DZ-3600U.
The Two Programs to Install
The software installed onto your computer with the setup utility includes
DZ-3600U Presentation Software, an application program, and DZ-3600U
TWAIN Driver, a driver for capturing images.
DZ-3600U Presentation Software
This application program assists in creating effective full-featured
presentations with the DZ-3600U Digital Document Camera. It allows you
to adjust the size and brightness of the high-definition still images
captured by the camera for display with a projector or other device.
Because you can capture any number of images in advance, and even
switch between application programs on the fly, your presentations will
progress smoothly and naturally. Moreover, most of the functions can be
operated with the remote control, which can be easily managed by
virtually anyone.

About the Bundled Software
DZ-3600U TWAIN Driver
This driver software is for use within standard image processing
(graphics) application programs to capture still images from the DZ3600U. This driver allows you to use the graphics programs with which
you are the most familiar to operate the DZ-3600U as a three-dimensional
scanner.
3
!!! Important !!!
• Application programs must be TWAIN-compliant (TWAIN_32) to be used
with the DZ-3600U TWAIN Driver.
An Introduction to the Features
For operating instructions, refer to the section entitled Capturing Images
with TWAIN Driver (P.86).

Preview Mode and Still Mode
The first priority in using the Presentation Software program is to learn the
distinction between the preview mode and the still mode.
Presentation Software features two modes, the preview and still modes,
and is always in one mode or the other. The following topic addresses the
significance and role of the respective modes.
•••␣ Note␣ •••
• Present ation So ftw ar e starts up in the pr eview mode .
• The instructions f or swit ching betw een the tw o modes ar e cont ained in the
explanations f or v arious functions (P .50, 60).
Preview Mode
The preview mode is for viewing objects in real time on a computer
display (or other device connected to the computer, such as a projector
or large screen monitor).
Real-Time Display of Subjects
under the Camera Lens
Wide Frame
A wide frame appears around the edges of the display when this mode is
active. Since the image changes in real-time in preview mode, the
preview mode is convenient for aligning objects and adjusting the zoom
and brightness before attempting to capture a high-resolution image.
42
Preview Mode and Still Mode
Still Mode
The still mode is for viewing images on a computer display (or other
device connected to the computer, such as a projector or large screen
monitor) that have been loaded from the DZ-3600U into the computer.
Off-Line Display
of Images Loaded
onto a Computer
In still mode, you can switch between or change the display size of
numerous previously loaded images. You can tell when Presentation
Software is in this mode because the wide frame is missing from the
edges of the image.

Still
Mode
Captured images can be saved as a file to a computer disk.
Images can be saved to disk in any of the following three ways. Please
note that files can only be saved and opened with the computer and not
with the remote control or DZ-3600U control panel.
Saving Images as Presentation Software Files
This method allows you to save all of the currently captured images to disk
at once. Files saved with this method can be opened again by the
Presentation Software program. Use this method if you wish to reuse files for
future presentations (for presenting the same images at a different location,
for example). The limitation of this method is that the files cannot be
opened by other application programs, such as graphics programs.
•••␣ Note •••
• The files saved with this method are assigned the “.PIH” file extension.
• The default save location (the folder automatically displayed in the save
window) is the [Presentation Histories] folder within the [My Documents]
folder.
Saving Just the Displayed Image
This method allows you to save only the current image in the display to
disk. You can select between the JPEG (.JPG) and bitmap (.BMP) file
formats. This method can only be selected in still mode.
An Introduction to the Features
•••␣ Note •••
• There are many image file formats currently in use. Presentation Software
can save in two of the most popular, the JPEG and bitmap formats. The JPEG
format compresses the image data, allowing the image to be saved in an
extremely small file. You are recommended to use this format for most
purposes.
• The default save location (the folder automatically displayed in the save
window) is the [Presentation Images] folder within the [My Documents]
folder.
3
Saving All Images and the HTML Index
This method creates a new folder, saves all the current captured images
in it and adds an HTML index for browsing the images. The files are saved
in the JPEG (.JPG) format.
••• Note •••
• The default save location (the folder automatically displayed in the save
window) is the [Presentation Histories] folder within the [My Documents]
folder.

used to adjust the color balance manually if the color equilibrium is disturbed
by a marked change in the ambient lighting.
A large change in the ambient lighting around the DZ-3600U may throw
off the color balance and produce a red or blue bias. In this case, you
should reset the white balance with the following procedures. They can
also be used to intentionally produce a red or blue tint.
1. Place the White Balance Adjustment Chart contained in the Quick
Reference Guide onto the object stage as shown in the diagram.
2. Zoom the chart until it completely fills the window.
3. Press the [Auto] button in the white balance section of the
control panel.
The auto indicator will flash until the white balance is reset, then it
will turn off.
Replace the White Balance Adjustment Chart with your presentation
materials and proceed with your presentation with the equipment in
this state. If you wish to intentionally create a red or blue tint, press
the [Manual] button after the steps above and use the manual dial to
adjust the color.
To reactivate the auto white balance function, press the [Auto]

• The purpose of this command is to change the orientation of the image
on a computer display. This function has no direct effect upon the image
signal from the DZ-3600U.
• To place a document that will be reoriented with this function, place
the top edge on the right of the object stage.
••• Note •••
• We will illustrate placement using an A4-sized document, which is longer
than it is wide. Assuming that you would normally place this page on the
object stage vertically (correct orientation), a portion of the page will
protrude beyond the camera’s field on the vertical axis. If, instead, you
place it on its side (horizontal or landscape orientation) and use the rotate
function to shift the image 90 degrees, the entire page will fit into the
camera’s field.

• If the video in port on the video monitor or projector is a pin-type port, you
will need t o use a BNC t o Pin adapter , such as the one pictur ed to the left,
which is r eadily av ailable on the market.
• Conversely , you may use a pin-type video cable o f the kind commonly used
BNC to Pin Adapter
on home-use VCRs with a Pin to BNC adapter attached to the DZ-3600U end
of the cable . However, this type o f cable is gener ally pr one t o significant
signal loss , which means that the decr ease in image quality will incr ease in
pr oportion t o the length o f the cable .
• An external VCR may also be connected t o either output port if it is fr ee to
Pin to BNC Adapter
recor d DZ-3600U images . The audio portion o f the pr esent ation, ho wever,
should be recorded with a separate microphone connected directly to the VCR
because the audio portion will be transmitted through the S video or video
output port.

Connecting to Other Image Input
Devices
The DZ-3600U has the ability to connect to other image input devices and
throughput the data to a video monitor or projector.
Among its other uses, this function allows you to show the contents of
a video tape or the video feed from another camera during a
presentation without having to change equipment.
!!! Important !!!
• The video feed from an external input device cannot be output to a
computer.
• If the external input device is connected via an S video cable, the
output can only be routed through the S video output port. The video
output port will not work in this case. Similarly, input through a BNC
video cable must be output through the video output port. Accordingly,
ensure that the cable you use between the DZ-3600U and the video
monitor or projector is the same type as that used between the DZ3600U and the external input device.
•••␣ Note •••
• Up to tw o external input de vices may be connected at one time . If both
devices are connected, the video feed can be freely switched between that
of the DZ-3600U, De vice 1 and De vice 2.
• See Displaying Images fr om External Input De vices (P .98) f or an e xplanation o f the oper ating pr ocedur es for these de vices .
• The DZ-3600U is not equipped with audio functions . Accor dingly , the audio
portion o f a video t ape play ed on a VCR must be r outed thr ough the VCR’s
audio out ports to a separate amplifier or audio system.

Troubleshooting Tips
Please confirm the following points before contacting the dealer if you encounter any difficulties operating the equipment or software programs.
Presentation Software Will Not Start
• Is the DZ-3600U’s power turned on? (P.28)
• Is the USB cable connected correctly? (P.17)
• Is the software correctly installed? (P.19)
The Computer Monitor Is Blank
• Is the computer connected correctly to its monitor and the projector?
(P.17)
• Have the input sources for the computer monitor and projector been
correctly selected?
Images Are Not Displaying on the Video Monitor
• Is the DZ-3600U, video monitor and/or projector power turned on?
(P.28)
• Are all the devices connected correctly? (P.17)
• Has an external input device (EXT In 1 or EXT In 2) been selected as
the current image source? (P.98)
• Have the input sources for the video monitor and projector been
correctly selected?
Images Are Not Displaying Smoothly
• Because of the limitations imposed by the transfer rate of the USB
cable, the movement of real-time images will be somewhat irregular on
the computer display. To view real-time images without the time lag,
connect a video monitor or projector directly to one of the output
ports on the DZ-3600U. The video output, nevertheless, will still not be
entirely smooth in the negative, flip, mirror, monochrome, or grayscale
modes, or at the High Clarity display resolution setting in the preview
mode. Moreever, the images may momentarily distort when switching
between modes. This is not a malfunction.
The Toolbar and Status Bar Have Vanished
• Move the mouse cursor to the top of the window. They will temporarily
reappear. (P.45)
100
Troubleshooting Tips
The Processing Speed of Other Application Programs Has Slowed
• You have temporarily minimized Presentation Software in preview mode
and attempted to use another application program, which has been
slowed down. This is due to the fact that Presentation Software is still
using memory resources to run its internal programming. To free up
memory resources, switch Presentation Software into still mode before
using the other application.
Images Are Too Bright or Dark
• Is the brightness correctly set on the monitor or projector?
• Is the object too dark? Turn on the front lights if necessary. (P.77)
• If the image is still too bright or dark, adjust the brightness with the
brightness function. (P.65)
The Focus Is Off
• Has the autofocus been shut off? (P.67)
• Has the closeup lens been switched off? Zooming in while the closeup
lens is switched off will cause blurring. (P.81)
• Is the object too dark? Turn on the front lights if necessary. (P.77)
• The autofocus may have difficulty focusing on objects that are too
glossy, virtually translucent or reflect very little light (such as dark
cloth). Use the manual focus on these objects. (P.67)
• It may be difficult to adjust the focus when the lens is zoomed in on
three-dimensional objects or thick documents. (P.67)
The Coloration Is Off
Colors Will Not Display
• Has the grayscale or monochrome mode been switched on? (P.76)
The Display Is Flickering
5
Troubleshooting
• Have the color settings on the monitor or projector been set correctly?
• Has the auto white balance function been turned off? (P.70)
• If the coloration cannot be adjusted satisfactorily with the auto white
balance function, reset the white balance. (P.70)
• If the above solution does not work, set the white balance manually.
(P.70)
• When you view a negative film, check the white balance [Auto] indication is not lit. (P.79)
• Switch the electronic shutter DIP switch on the rear panel to the
following setting (P.111):
For regions with electricity supplied at 60 Hertz: Set the DIP switch to 60
101
Troubleshooting Tips
Lines Are Appearing in Captured Images
•Has the camera head or object been moved or has the ambient lighting
changed while the image is being captured?
• Lines may appear in images captured at the High Resolution setting. If
this occurs, switch the electronic shutter DIP switch on the rear panel
to the following setting (P.111):
For regions with electricity supplied at 60 Hertz: Set the DIP switch to 60
• The lines may also disappear if the brightness is adjusted. (P.65)
Images Are Inverted or Reversed
• Has the flip or mirror function been activated? Press the [Reset] button
on the camera head. (P.80)
Images from External Input Devices Are Not Displaying
• Is the DZ-3600U or external input device power on? (P.28)
• Is the external input device connected correctly? (P.92)
Lights Are Not Illuminating Immediately After the Lights Button Is Pressed
• To protect the lights, they do not illuminate until two or three seconds
after the power has been applied. This is not a malfunction. (P.77)
The Lights Flicker or Are Dim
• The fluorescent tubes in the front lights or backlight have reached the
end of their service lives. Replace them if they flicker or are dim.
Consult the dealer for replacement tubes.
The Remote Control Will Not Work
• Is there sufficient charge remaining in the batteries? (P.23)

Glossary
Color
On a computer, color information is expressed by combining various
ratios of the three primary colors: red, green and blue (RGB). The DZ3600U is capable of expressing each of the primary colors in 256 hues (8
bits), which together create a total of approximately 16.7 million colors
(256 x 256 x 256) (24 bits) in which images can be expressed.
Grayscale
A grayscale image is one that is expressed in black, white and 254
shades of gray (a total of 256 tones). A grayscale image looks much like
a monochrome photograph.
HTML
Hyper Text Markup Language: a high-level programming language used to
create web pages for the Internet. Use Internet browser software to view
files created in this format.
Image File
A file that contains image data in a format that can be processed by a
computer. At the most fundamental level, an image file is comprised of
bitmap information, which is a series of dots (picture elements) assigned
color values that are arranged in a grid. There are numerous image file
formats, including the bitmap (BMP) and JPEG (JPG) formats, that may or
may not use compression and differ in the way the dots are arranged.
NEGA
The DZ-3600U mode that enables negative films to be scanned much like
a paper document. This mode produces coloration superior to the method
whereby a negative film is scanned as a negative and later inverted with
graphics software because it takes the color of the film base into account
in calibrating colors. If you look carefully at negative film, you will note
that the film itself has an orange tint. The invert function of graphics
programs generally are not capable of compensating for the film base
color, resulting in a poor color balance.
NTSC
A transmission standard for television signals used in Japan and North
America. Different standards are used in Western Europe (PAL) and
Eastern Europe (SECAM). Since the output from the DZ-3600U conforms
to the NTSC standard, it cannot be viewed on PAL or SECAM televisions
and video monitors.
Scanner
The word scanner is commonly used to refer to devices that load the
information from paper-based photographs, text and illustrations onto
computers. The DZ-3600U not only scans paper-based items, it is also
capable of scanning three-dimensional objects as they appear. The
process of using a scanner to load information into a computer is called
‘scanning.’
118
Glossary
TWAIN
An application programming interface (API) standard for image input
devices, such as the DZ-3600U, image scanners and digital cameras. Any
device will work with any application program, regardless of the
manufacturer or model, as long as both comply with the standard.
USB
Universal serial bus: a new interface standard that supports up to 127
peripheral devices, such as keyboards, displays, mice and modems in a
daisy chain connection.
VAROS
VAriable Refraction Optical System: an imaging technology that achieves
a ninefold increase in resolution by optically sampling an object from
nine minutely different angles and integrating the data into a single
image. Using VAROS, the DZ-3600U is able to achieve a resolution
equivalent to a 3.6-million element charge-coupled device (CCD).
White Balance
The human eye is an extremely adaptable device. For example, if exposed
to a sheet of white paper outdoors at noon, it will recognize it as ‘white
paper.’ If exposed to the same sheet indoors in a room with the lights off
and little ambient light, it will still recognize it as ‘white paper.’
Moreover, it can even recognize it under the light of a red sky at
twilight. An electronic eye (such as the CCD element used in the DZ3600U), on the other hand, will probably register the paper as white in
the outdoor setting, gray in the darkened room and red under the night
sky.
The white balance function is what compensates for this phenomenon.
The DZ-3600U is equipped with an auto white balance function so that
there is no need to make adjustments in most cases. Nonetheless, it is
also equipped with a manual white balance function for when it is
required (p. 70).
