Operating Walk-and-Talk Products
Using the Remote Control
You control your Walk-and-Talk whiteboard, cordless lectern, or interactive
panel using a remote control. The Walk-and-Talk remote control operates
at a distance of up to 40 feet (12 m) from any of the Walk-and-Talk
products.
When your computer is projected on the Walk-and-Talk product, the
remote control enables you to roam freely about the room while you give
your presentation. Use the remote control to move the computer cursor,
click and double-click, and launch an on-screen keyboard to enter text into
dialog boxes. The remote control also has buttons that enable you to print
or save a snapshot of your presentation.
Always point the remote control toward the infrared receiver in your Walkand-Talk product: at the top of the interactive whiteboard, or at the remote
control receiver that comes with your interactive panel or cordless lectern.
Remote Control Options
The remote control functions equally well from these locations:
•
Carry the remote control with you using the wrist or neck lanyard
provided.
•
Place the remote control near you on a desk or table top pointed
toward the infrared receiver.
If you are using a TS interactive whiteboard, a touch-sensitive icon strip
along the edge of the board functions in place of the Walk-and-Talk remote
control. Refer to “Operating the TS Interactive Whiteboards” on page 10.

Using Multiple Walk-and-Talk Products
If your room includes multiple Walk-and-Talk products, you can operate up
to three of them with the same computer and remote control. Multiple
devices can be associated with the same computer, but multiple
computers cannot be associated with one device.
One remote control can operate up to three Walk-and-Talk products
connected to your computer, but only one at a time. To determine which
product is active, the remote control includes a three-position switch on the
left side.
By default, your Walk-and-Talk product responds to the remote control
whether it is set to A, B, or C. However, if you use multiple Walk-and-Talk
products with the same remote control, you must assign one remote
control switch position to each device.
1
Connect the devices to your computer’s USB ports.
2
Click the PolyVision driver icon in the system tray (Windows) or the
system menu bar (Macintosh).
3
Choose “Configure the PolyVision driver” from the menu.
4
Click the “Hardware” tab.
5
Click “Change Remote ID.”
6
Slide the switch on the remote to position “A.”
7
Point the remote to one device and click “Projection.”
8
Repeat for up to two additional devices connected to your computer,
choosing the “B” and “C” switch positions on the remote control.
When a device has been assigned the A, B, or C position on the remote
control switch, it remains associated with that switch position until you
Basics

PolyVision®
To use multiple devices:
W_T UG.book.fm Page 10 Thursday, October 16, 2008 4:09 PM
change the connections to your USB ports, even if you re-boot your
computer or attach the Walk-and-Talk product to another computer.
Using Walk-and-Talk Products with Multiple Monitors
The PolyVision driver supports up to three projectors on the same
computer showing separate parts of the computer’s desktop. You may
need to add an additional video card(s) to use multiple projectors.
Since all the PolyVision products connected to your computer are
communicating via the PolyVision driver, you have the option of pointing the
remote at the active device or at the most convenient of the
communicating devices.
To use the remote control with multiple devices:
1
Write or project a computer display on any or all of the connected
devices.
2
To capture a snapshot or use other remote control functions, slide the
switch to the position that matches the device you want to capture or
operate.
3
Point the remote to any of the Walk-and-Talk products and press the
desired button. Any of the connected devices can receive infrared
commands from your remote, but the function will take place only on
the device that is associated with the remote control.
Snapshots that you save on your computer with multiple products
connected continue to be numbered sequentially, regardless of which
product is captured.
PolyVision®
Each PolyVision product operates independently, so device “A” can
capture a red marker while device “B” captures a blue marker.
Operating the TS Interactive Whiteboards
The TS and TSL Interactive Whiteboards include a touch-sensitive icon
strip along the edge of the board that provides the same functions as the
Walk-and-Talk remote control.

About Writing and Erasing
The PolyVision device sends writing and erasing data to your computer by
detecting a single point of pressure. Whenever you write on the PolyVision
device, make sure there is only one point of contact at a time.
The tool you use to write on your PolyVision device depends upon which
model you have.
NOTE:
note:
Use only the recommended markers, stylus, and erasers.
NOTE:
note:
For TS, TSL, WT or WTL whiteboard users: The whiteboard's surface can
be damaged by sharp objects, such as ballpoint pens and rulers.
Scratches can cause permanent ink stains and data loss due to electrical
malfunctions.
Writing and Erasing on WT and WTL Whiteboards
The Walk-and-Talk whiteboard models (WT and WTL) are touch sensitive
and send writing data to your computer by detecting a single point of
pressure. Use standard dry-erase markers to write on the board. To specify
the color that is recorded in the software, press the corresponding ink color
button on the remote control.
PolyVision®
To write on the board so you can save or print:
1
Choose a dry-erase marker.
2
Press one of the ink color buttons on the remote control to specify the
color that is recorded in the software.
3

When you choose a pen color and write, sounds from the board provide
audible feedback to confirm that the software is recording. A selected pen
color (or eraser) stays in effect until you select a different one.

Projection Mode
While using your PolyVision product in projection mode, with a projector
connected to your computer, a variety of powerful options become
available.
PolyVision®
In projection mode, the PolyVision interactive product becomes a touchsensitive monitor for your computer. You can:
•
Control your computer from the touch-sensitive screen. For Walk-and
-Talk products, you can also roam freely about the room and interact
with the computer using the remote control.
•
Run slide presentations and other software from the PolyVision display
screen instead of the computer.
•
Make notes and drawings over your computer’s projected screen that
you can print or save.
Projection mode is an option for Walk-and-Talk interactive whiteboards (WT
and WTL) and TS whiteboards (TS and TSL), but the Walk-and-Talk
cordless lectern (CL) and interactive panel (IP) always operate in projection
mode.

W_T UG.book.fm Page 17 Thursday, October 16, 2008 4:09 PM
Getting Started in Projection Mode
Cable connections between your computer and the projector enable you to
control your computer from the interactive whiteboard or using the remote
control (WT and WTL).
NOTE:
note:
At startup, the PolyVision driver recognizes if you are using the CL or IP and
automatically initiates projection mode. No alignment is necessary.
To enter projection mode:
1
Connect your computer to the projector and turn on the projector, the
whiteboard, and the computer.
2
WTL or TSL whiteboards: Assure that at least half of the projected
image is actually projected onto the board.
WT or TS whiteboards: Move the projector physically so that the
entire solid-colored background is positioned inside the borders of the
whiteboard.
Press the “Projection” button on the remote control (Walk-and-Talk
models) or tap the Projection icon on the board (TS models) one time.
The following alignment window projects from the computer to the
board.

board glows yellow while you are in projection mode.
To exit projection mode:
•
Press the Projection button on the remote control (Walk-and-Talk
products) or tap the Projection icon (TS whiteboards).
Choosing Alignment Accuracy
The alignment between your projector and the PolyVision product is
important. PolyVision offers three levels of alignment: good, better, best.
The default is good alignment.
You might need to use more alignment points to improve the
correspondence between the position of the computer cursor and the
point of contact when you tap the PolyVision product. (Some video
projectors, for instance, do not produce a linear display when projection
with keystone correction is used.)
PolyVision®
To change the number of alignment points:
1
Click the PolyVision driver icon in you computer system menu bar or
system tray (refer to “Configuring PolyVision Driver Options” on
page 29).
2
Click the “Projection” tab.
3
Choose an alignment type from the drop-down list.
Proceed as usual to enter projection mode or re-align while in projection
mode. Follow the alignment instructions that are projected on your product.
About Writing in Projection Mode
In projection mode, interactive whiteboards (WT WTL, TS, or TSL) provide
two types of writing:
•
18
writing on the whiteboard using dry-erase markers
User Guide
W_T UG.book.fm Page 19 Thursday, October 16, 2008 4:09 PM
•
marking up the projected computer screen using your finger for
computer-projected “ink.”
For CL and IP models, you use with the stylus for all writing. (Refer to
“Marking-Up Computer Projections”.)
Writing Notes Next to a Projected Image
With an interactive whiteboard (WT, WTL, TS, or TSL) while in projection
mode you can use a dry-erase marker to write notes on the whiteboard, as
usual, and print or save everything you see, including any writing with the
dry-erase marker, the computer projection, and mark-ups (refer to
“Marking-Up Computer Projections”).
Marking-Up Computer Projections
While in projection mode, you can draw, highlight, and write over the
projected computer screen. This type of writing is called “mark-up” and it is
part of the projected image, not physical ink.
To mark-up the projected computer image:
Press the “Cursor/Pen” button on the remote control (Walk-and-Talk
models) or tap the “Pen/Cursor” icon on the board (TS models). The
cursor changes from an arrow to a pen. (To return to mouse
operations, press “Cursor/Pen” on the remote or tap the “Pen/Cursor”
icon on the board again.)

Using Walk-and-Talk Wireless (IR)
The Walk-and-Talk™ Wireless option provides infrared wireless
communication between your interactive whiteboard (WT or WTL) and your
computer.
Walk-and-Talk Wireless components replace the USB cable connection
between your whiteboard and computer, giving you the freedom to position
your computer up to 24 feet (7 m) away.
PolyVision®
Infrared communication is designed to reflect from the ceiling and walls,
enabling it to bounce over the heads of people writing on the board or
sitting near the computer, so a direct line of sight between the board and
the transmitter is not needed.
Using Walk-and-Talk Wireless (IR)
41
W_T UG.book.fm Page 42 Thursday, October 16, 2008 4:09 PM
Hardware requirements:
•
One serial port or one USB port and serial-to-USB adapter, available
from PolyVision.
All Walk-and-Talk whiteboards, including Lightning models (WTL), require a
power supply to work with Walk-and-Talk Wireless.
NOTE:
note:
If you are using the wireless option with a WTL interactive whiteboard, be
sure to connect the power supply provided with the wireless components
to your board and to a power outlet.
The reflected infrared light can fill a standard size conference room or
classroom to provide a very stable communication link between the board
and your computer.
To establish a wireless communication link between the whiteboard and
your computer:
1
Position the wireless transmitter so the curved edge faces the board.
PolyVision®
To Computer
2
Adjust the position of the transmitter until the LED on it turns green.
3
If you are using the wireless option with a serial-to-USB adapter, install
the software for the adapter first.
If you are connecting the wireless transmitter to the serial (COM) port
on your computer, not using a serial-to-USB adapter, configure the
PolyVision driver to communicate with your computer serial port as
follows: click the PolyVision icon in your computer’s system tray
(Windows) or system menu (Macintosh), choose “Configure
PolyVision,” click the “Hardware” tab and click the “Find Serial

Whiteboards” button. The PolyVision driver searches all serial ports for
attached boards and adds them to the list. Select your board and click
OK.
Test the wireless communication link by standing in front of the
wireless transmitter. If the LED on the transmitter turns from green to
amber, try moving the transmitter or other features in the room until the
LED remains green even if someone stands in front of it. (Rooms with
high ceilings or with few walls may require line-of-sight to operate
Walk-and-Talk Wireless.)

Using the TS Wireless Option (IR)
TS Wireless uses reflected infrared (IR) light to communicate between
transceivers on your whiteboard and your computer. A direct line of sight
between the transceivers is not needed for reliable communication. Both
transceivers are designed to shine and detect IR light using the ceiling.
Install TS Wireless so both transceivers have an unobstructed view of the
area of the ceiling between the two transceivers. This allows the IR from
each transceiver to bounce over the heads of people writing on the board
and sitting near the computer.
TS Wireless works best when the two transceivers are within 24 feet (7 m)
of one another. The TS wireless option only words with TS interactive
whiteboards.
Ceiling height and material also make a difference in performance. The
higher the ceiling, the closer together the transceivers need to be. A non-IR
reflective ceiling also reduces the range. The 24-foot (7 m) range assumes
a typical office conference room with a ceiling height of between 8 and 12
feet (2.5 and 3.5 m) and a light-colored, acoustic tile ceiling. If your ceiling is
not IR reflective, try using one of your walls. Do this by mounting one
transceiver on the side of your whiteboard and pointing the other
transceiver toward the wall on that side of the whiteboard.
PolyVision®
Position the transceiver so the curved edge of the transceiver points
toward the transceiver on the board.
44
User Guide
W_T UG.book.fm Page 45 Thursday, October 16, 2008 4:09 PM
Adjust the position of the computer and whiteboard transceiver until both
transceivers show a green light, then use the double-sided tape to fasten
the whiteboard transceiver in place.
Once TS Wireless is installed and while a wireless link is established (green
lights on both transceivers) most TS whiteboard systems function just as
they did with the serial or USB cable in place.
Transceiver LEDs
The lights on both transceivers must be green for TS Wireless to work
properly. It is possible for one transceiver to have a green light when the
other transceiver only has an amber light. Be sure to check the lights on
both transceivers before trying to use your whiteboard. It is also possible to
have two green lights without the transceivers being plugged into the serial
ports of the board or the computer and when either the board or the
computer is not turned on.
Under certain circumstances the link breaks between TS Wireless
transceivers. The light in the center of each TS Wireless transceiver tells
you the current status:
OFF:
Transceiver is not receiving power.
AMBER:
Transceiver is receiving power.
GREEN:
Transceiver is receiving power and a signal from the
other transceiver.
Establishing a Wireless Link
•
The transceiver starts sending out a signal that the other transceiver
can receive.
•
The transceiver starts looking for a signal from the other transceiver.
The green light comes on when the transceiver with the green light can see
the signal from the other transceiver.
Using the TS Wireless Option (IR)
45
PolyVision®
TS Wireless transceivers attempt to establish a wireless link automatically
whenever they are powered on. Connecting power to a TS Wireless
transceiver does two things:
W_T UG.book.fm Page 46 Thursday, October 16, 2008 4:09 PM
When a Wireless Link Breaks
When the wireless link breaks:
•
The light on one or both of the transceivers turns amber.
•
Data stops flowing between your whiteboard and your computer.
•
Your Webster software may give you an error message.
The Webster software error message can appear even when both
transceiver lights are green. This means that one of the two transceivers
has come unplugged from the serial connection on the board or the PC or
that the board itself has lost power.
Re-establishing a Broken Link
It is possible to break the link in several ways. The two most obvious ways
are to cover one of the transceivers or to unplug one of the transceivers
from power. It is also possible to break the link by “shadowing” one of the
transceivers. Because you can’t see IR light, you can’t see a shadow in the
IR light being sent from one transceiver to another. A shadow usually
occurs when a large object, like a person, is placed very close to one of the
transceivers so it cannot see or bounce light off of the ceiling.
PolyVision®
Remove the cause of the broken link and the link will automatically restore
itself. The troubleshooting section gives you a list of symptoms, probable
causes and cures for broken links.
