Janetta Garton Ÿ Willard Public Schools 1 10/3/14 Ideal Positioning of Swivl Base
Line of sight is required between Marker and Base for the infrared signal. Place the Base 6-­‐15 feet from presenter. If the presenter is closer than 5 feet Base probably won’t responds to movement. The presenter should not be more than 30 feet away from the Base. If you turn your back, the base won’t move until you turn back around. •
