The VZ-X camera has built-in wireless, but please do not use the wireless on campus, as it interferes with AirOrangeX. Please keep it disabled by moving the slider switch from Wi-Fi to USB/HDMI.
The camera does not require software to operate. You can use it in Zoom, Teams, etc., immediately after connecting it to the computer via the included USB cable.
Visualizer and Whiteboard cannot be used from phones/tablets on campus with the camera, as they require the camera to be placed in wireless mode, which interferes with the campus wireless network. Please only use off campus.
Visualizer can be used via the USB cable on laptops.
