Overview of the LCD Setup.

 
 

 
 

The diagram shows an overview of the LCD display setup. Use this setup if you want to interact with a TV or PC screen with the Ubi pen. The Ubi camera is plugged into a PC and is placed in front of an LCD display.
 
Setup the hardware as follows:
 

  • Connect your PC to an LCD display.
  • Place the Ubi camera in front of the LCD display.
  • Connect the Ubi camera to the PC

 
You will only be able to interact using the Ubi pen with this setup.

Affix the camera to the mount

 

affix the camera to the short mount provided.
 
It is a good idea to affix the base to the table with the tape provided so that the camera does not move during interaction.

Connect the Ubi camera to your PC

Once you have connected all the hardware, start Ubi.

Placing the camera farther away

 

If you need to place the camera further than 30 inches from the display, we recommend that you use the Ubi Long Throw camera and enable this setting under the “Hardware” tab in Ubi Configuration.

Camera preview.

 

The camera preview shows you how much of your display the camera can see. Move the camera until it can see all of the display. For optimal performance, make sure the display fills up as much of the camera preview as possible.
 
Once you click the Calibrate button, a dot pattern will quickly flash and if the calibration is successful, you will proceed to mount the emitter.
 
If calibration fails, it is likely due to the following reasons:
 
1. There is not enough contrast and the camera cannot see all of the display. In this case, adjust the room lighting and make sure there is no reflection on the LCD display.
 
2. The entire display is not within view of the camera.
 
3. There is too much clutter on or around the display that causes Ubi to detect more than 36 calibration dots.

Successful Setup

 

Once the emitter is in its final position, you have completed the setup process. You will be prompted to choose how you would like to calibrate the next time you use Ubi.
 
We recommend selecting auto-calibrate if you do not intend to change your setup.
