Let’s Set up Your Ubi.

 

Congratulations on getting a Ubi. Here, we are going to provide you step by step instructions on how to set up Ubi.  If you have any questions during any of these steps, please contact our support team.

 

 

Check what’s in the box

 

Depending on what setup you want to create, you can receive two variations of packages. When you place your order, it is important to let us know which setup you are planning to create. This will help us send you the right package.

 

 

Integrated Mount Package

 

Integrated mount has an arm that includes the sensor camera and a base unit that can include the touch emitter. This mount is recommended if you are creating a whiteboard or wall projection using a regular projector (Throw ratio > 1).

 

 

What is inside the Ubi box ?
 

  • Ubi Camera Mount and Accessories
    • Ubi camera: Captures the user interaction and transmits to the computer via a USB cable. The camera is integrated at the tip of the arm.
    • USB cable: Connects camera to the PC. It is 12m or 40″ long.
    • Arm Base: The magnetic base of the arm that can be simply snapped on any metallic surface.
    • Metallic Plate: If you are mounting this arm on a wall or any other non-metallic surfaces, first paste or screw this metallic plate on the surface.
  • Ubi Touch Emitter and Accessories
    • Ubi touch emitter : Creates a laser pattern on the display surface, so that when the finger is touching the surface the camera can detect it. Ubi touch emitter comes with magnets at its back so that it can simply be snapped on any metallic surface such as a whiteboard. The emitter has a switch on the side that turns on the visible light that helps you align it.
    • Metallic base plate for emitter : Sometimes you want the emitter to be mounted on non-metallic surface and be able to remove it when you want. The metallic plate helps with that. Paste the metallic plate on the surface and attach emitter to it using the magnets on the back of the emitter. We provide special 3M tape for the base plate so that it can be attached and removed without damaging the surface.
    • Power adapter for emitter : Connects the emitter to a power outlet. If you are not from the US, you may need a pin adapter to connect to your country’s power outlet. You will not need any transformer.
    • Power cable for emitter :The power cable can be used to connect emitter to the power adapter.
  • Stylus: If you are writing extensively for a long period of time, you can use the stylus for ergonomic comfort. You can switch between finger interaction and stylus interaction seamlessly.
  • Wand : A wand is an extendable stick with a white tip. It can stand in for your finger especially when some part of the display cannot be reached with your finger. It does not require charging or batteries.
  • Calibration markers : Each package has two white dots that need to be used for emitter alignment and calibration. Please see more about their usage here.

 

Projector Mount Package

 

This helps you attach the sensor camera to your projector. This is recommended if you use a short throw projector (throw ratio > 0.5) to create a projection on whiteboard or wall. It is also recommended if you are creating a rear projection set up and table top set up.
