Camera Mode
The default mode when starting IPEVO Presenter is Camera mode, selectable with
the top tab on the left-hand side. This mode displays the live image coming from
the doc cam connected to your computer. You can also customize your image in
several ways using the pulldown menus and buttons.

Top Menu Functions
A
Zoom
Digitally zoom in on the subject. 1x (normal) to 8x zoom is possible.
B
Mirror
Flip the image along a horizontal axis, flop the image along a vertical axis, or
select both Horizontal and Vertical for an image that is flipped and flopped.
The default is Off, i.e. no mirroring.
C
Rotate
Rotate the image 360 degrees. Slide the green marker to your desired degree,
use the arrow keys for incremental rotations, or use the preset buttons for
instant 90-, 180- and 270-degree rotations. Press the Reset key to return to
the original position. Both Mirror and Rotate are useful for orienting text so
that it's readable.
D
Resolution
Change your resolution on the fly. Higher resolutions offer a higher-quality
image, but they consume more computing power. If your image stutters or
suffers from a strobe-like effect, consider lowering the resolution to increase
the frame rate for a smoother image.
E
Exposure
Change your image exposure from 1 (darkest) to 15 (brightest). The default
value is 8, i.e. medium brightness. If your image is too dark, consider
increasing the exposure. Check the AE - Lock button to lock your camera's
exposure to the current value.
F
White Balance
Control the color temperature of the image. The WB slider may be dragged
to higher color temperatures to make the image cooler/bluer, or to lower
temperatures to make the image warmer/redder. Your selection will
automatically lock into place with WB – Lock. (*White Balance available on
select IPEVO document cameras only)
G
AF Lock / Manual Focus
If Autofocus (AF) Lock is checked, your camera will try to find the best focus
for a sharp image. If you prefer manual focus instead, drag the slider to your
desired focus, from very close (the flower icon) to very far away (the infinity
icon). To return to Autofocus, uncheck the "AF-Lock" box. (*Manual focus
available on select IPEVO document cameras only)
H
Full Screen
Clicking this will cause the Presenter window to occupy the entire screen.
This is useful for lessons and presentations.
Bottom Menu Functions
I
Select Video Device
Select the video device Presenter should use. If properly connected, your
device's name should appear here.
Special note for iZiggi-HD users – As a wireless document camera, iZiggi-HD
connects to your computer via Wi-Fi. First-time connections can take a minute
or two to be reflected in the Select Video Device box, so please allow for this
delay before selecting iZiggi-HD as your video device.

Adjust
Pressing Adjust will take you to a Video Control menu with several camera
settings you can adjust by dragging the corresponding sliders.

L
Auto (Interval Shooting)
Clicking this will bring up a window allowing

schedule.
Once set, Presenter will take snapshots
automatically at intervals of your choosing.
This tool is ideal for archiving different
materials quickly, for time-lapse photography,
and for stop-motion videos.

N
Freeze
Pause the live image. Press again to unpause and return to live action.
O
Display Mode
P
Focus and Focus Indicator
Press to make visual overlays disappear so you have an uncluttered image
suitable for presentation. Press once to display the menu elements only.
Press again to make the menu elements and a grid appear. Press a third time
to display only a grid and not the menus.
Press a fourth time to make both the grid and menu elements disappear. The
cycle will then start over again with a fifth press.
Indicates whether your doc cam is in Single focus mode (AF-S) or Continuous
focus mode (AF-C). Pressing the crosshairs will cause your doc cam to find a
new focus.
When focusing, four corners of a red box will appear in the center of the
screen and a beep will sound, letting you know your camera is attempting to
focus. The image may appear to slightly zoom in and out. When the doc cam
is done focusing, the red corners will change to green corners, and there will
be a brief sound effect.
Review Mode
Select the second tab on the left-hand side to enter Review mode. In this mode,

Splitscreen Mode
Have two IPEVO doc cams? Now you can connect both of them to your computer.
Presenter will create two screen for the live feeds. Just set one Presenter window
to camera A and the other to camera B. The feeds will appear live on the screen so
you can view them at the same time. It's easily when you need to compare two
works at the same time.
You can also assign two screen to the same doc cam. Make one window your
default live stream and use the other window to zoom, freeze and otherwise
highlight your material. Now Presenter has yet another way to enrich your
presentation and give your audience more perspectives and more details.
To enter Splitscreen mode, click on the Split Screen tab on the left.
