Displaying a Remote or Mobile Device

Below are instructions on how to display a remote device in a classroom.

For any presenting software, switch to the Mobile input from the Crestron control panel in the classroom. After Mobile has been selected, instructions to connect with a mobile Android, laptop, or Apple device will appear on screen. Once the mobile device is connected, it will appear as a camera device on the presenting computer. At this time, Apple devices are not reliable to connect, and other options should be considered first.

Option 1: Using Windows Camera App

The camera app will show the mobile device as an input, and can be used to easily switch between the mobile device display and another open item, like a PowerPoint presentation.

Zoom 

  1. From a zoom call, select Share Screen
    • For classrooms with multiple monitors, select the screen you wish to share. 
  2. After sharing the screen, use the Windows Search Tool to open the computer's Camera App
  3. Cycle through the camera inputs using the Change Camera icon in the camera app until the mobile device image appears on your screen. 

Blackboard Collaborate Ultra 

  1. From a Collaborate session, select Share Application/Screen. 
    • For classrooms with multiple monitors, select the screen you wish to share. 
  2. After sharing the screen, use the Windows Search Tool to open the computer's Camera App
  3. Cycle through the camera inputs using the Change Camera icon in the camera app until the mobile device image appears on your screen.

Microsoft Teams 

  1. From a Teams call, select the Share Screen button. 
    • For classrooms with multiple monitors, select the screen you wish to share. 
  2. After sharing the screen, use the Windows Search Tool to open the computer's Camera App
  3. Cycle through the camera inputs using the Change Camera icon in the camera app until the mobile device imgage appears on your screen.

Option 2: Directly Presenting the Mobile Device Image

Using the mobile device as a video input will allow for a larger and better view, but will not easily allow for switching between the display and another application that might be used during a lecture, such as a video or PowerPoint.

Zoom

  1. From a zoom call, select the “Share” option and navigate to the “Advanced” tab along the top. 
  2. From there, select the option for “Content from 2nd Camera
  3. After sharing the camera, cycle through the camera inputs using the “Switch Camera” icon 

Blackboard Collaborate Ultra

  1. From a Collaborate session, select the “Share Camera” option.
  2. After opening the panel, select the mobile device from the list of devices
  3. Selecting any of the listed cameras will show a preview, so the correct camera can be chosen 

Microsoft Teams

  1. From a Teams call, select the “Camera” option to enable the camera
  2. If the camera does not show the correct image, navigate to the device settings
  3. Select the mobile device input from the drop-down menu under the “Camera” heading
