Turning on the System
If the monitor appears dark, tap the screen, which wakes up the system and turns the projector on within a few seconds.
o If the monitor and projector do not turn on when you tap the screen, then open the front door of the teaching station and press the white power button on the Cynap Core Pro processor. It will appear green after it is powered on.
o If the Core Pro processor’s power button is already green, then make sure the monitor is turned on, as evidenced by a blue LED on the lower right bezel of the monitor. If the LED is amber instead of blue, tap the amber light to turn it on.
Connecting and Selecting a Source
To connect a portable computer or tablet, you may connect it using either the HDMI cable or wireless casting (using Airplay, Miracast or Chromecast). If you are wirelessly casting, you may skip the following steps; just search on your mobile device for the wireless display labeled "OHSN 380."
To select a source, Tap the screen to show the control ribbon; then tap on the yellow [+] button and select the desired source.
When a computer or tablet is connected to the teaching station's HDMI cable, it will appear as ‘PC’ on the source icons when you tap the yellow [+] button.
If you want to use the provided desktop PC, wiggle the mouse, or press a key on the keyboard to wake the PC from sleep mode. Plug the laptop HDMI cable into the HDMI jack inside the door of the teaching station, just to the left of the PC. If the PC is powered off, press its power button.
Turning off the System
Tap the screen and click on the [...] icon in the bottom right corner.
Tap the ‘End Presentation’ button and choose ‘Power Saving Mode.
Or, if you wish to keep using the interactive monitor but turn off the projector, simply touch the 'Turn Off Display' button (instead of the 'End Presentation' button).
Please leave the PC and monitor powered on. This way, it will enter sleep mode, and receive any necessary security updates, and a tap to the monitor will start up the system again.
Document Camera: Connect the Hovercam's USB cable to the computer's USB jack. Use the buttons on the base of the HoverCam to Zoom in or out. Open the Camera app on the PC, maximize the window, or use conferencing software like Zoom or Teams.
Webcam: Connect the Logitech Brio webcam, with USB cable to the computer's USB jack. Open the Camera app on the PC, maximize the window, or use conferencing software like Zoom or Teams.
