Installation Guide for
Zoom/Video Cam
Installing your new Zoom/Video Cam is
easy:
1
Getting Started
Prepare your computer. You have the option of
using the Zoom/Video Capture Card or enabling
an existing Zoom/Video Ready Faxmodem for video
capture.
2
Installing the Internal Card
If you do not have a Zoom/Video Ready Faxmodem, install the video capture card. This involves
shutting off your computer and plugging the modem card into a slot on the main board of the computer. It’s easy to do even if you’ve never had the
case off your computer.
2A
Updating Your Faxmodem
If you already have a Zoom/Video Ready Faxmodem, or if you have just installed one, you can
run a program that will upgrade the modem card
and enable video capture.
3
Completing the Installation
Plug in the Video Camera and install some software drivers so Windows knows what to do with
the camera. The Windows Hardware Wizard guides
you through most of the procedure. You can also
plug in the lapel microphone that comes with your
camera.
4
Installing Video Software
Install VideoLink and VideoLink Mail, video programs that enable you to record video mail, do videoconferencing, and make video telephone calls.
Also install other software that comes on your
Zoom Link CD.
Each step is described in the accompanying numbered
flyers. We suggest you read through all the flyers before
you begin. Then start with Flyer 1 and just follow the
numbers!
Additional Information
The Reference Guide on the Zoom Link CD contains
further information or expanded information that may be
useful in installing and troubleshooting the Video Camera.
It covers all current versions of the Video Camera and the
Video Ready Faxmodem that is available separately or in
combination with the Video Camera.
In the Reference Guide, you will find:
•
Detailed instructions for removing an old device (usually a modem) in the unlikely event that you need to
free up the computer’s resources for the Video Camera.
Unplugging a modem card from the computer does not
“remove” the card from the Windows 95 or 98 operating system. It is necessary to tell Windows that you are
going to remove a device; this allows Windows to reallocate its internal “resources” and make them available
for a new device.
•
Tips for using a Video Camera.
•
Tips for using communications software with a Faxmodem.
•
A troubleshooting guide.
•
Several appendixes with further information or details
that may be useful in troubleshooting.
Finding and Printing the Reference Guide
A Manuals button is on the main installation interface of
the Zoom Link CD. Clicking on this button will display a
Reference Guide button. Click this button to display the
Guide in Adobe Acrobat format. If you do not have Adobe
Acrobat, you can install it from the Zoom Link CD.
You can read the Reference Guide on screen, or you can
print it out for future reference (it is about 50 pages long).
You can also print out just the pages you need.
