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 the 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. •
Placement #1: Use to capture presenter and board/projection in background. Placement #2: Use if you want to capture interaction with students. •
Set up the tripod (if using) and connect the Swivl Base. Place the mobile device in the base and connect the audio cable. Press and hold the Power button on the Base until the unit powers up. Press and hold the Power button on the Marker until you see a green light beside the power buttons on both the base and marker, indicating that the 2 components are connected. 4. Press and hold the sync button on the Base until the light is red and blinking. 5. Turn on Bluetooth on the tablet (iOS: Setting>Bluetooth) or phone. 6.
