Each Kloud-12 camera has multiple views accessible through the user dashboard. As a primary user or camera owner, you will be able to adjust the camera mode, the angles of the camera view, as well as zooming the view in or out.
Camera View Modes:
Quad view is the default mode of your classroom camera.
Quad View divides the 360 degrees of the camera coverage area into four 90-degree quadrants: front, back, left and right.
Each quadrant is adjustable with PTZ controls, allowing you to individually manage each quadrant by panning left/right, tilting up/down and zooming in/out.
Kloud-12 recommends keeping your camera in Quad View as a best practice for full classroom coverage.
Note - With Quad View, you can record your entire room, and then extract just one quadrant of the recording file in the editing process!
- Single View captures just one quadrant of your classroom.
- Single View is a great instructional option, for recording just your lesson board!
- Single View is great for One-Time Recordings where you have specific need for capturing just this area.
Note - with Single View, the rest of your classroom is not recorded. You can still create a lesson recording by using Quad View and extracting just your instructional view quadrant from the recording.
Double Pano (panoramic) View
- Double Pano View divides the 360 degrees of the camera area into two 180-degree halves.
- Double Pano View is good for observation of the full classroom.
Adjusting Your Kloud-12 Camera Mode & View:
Adjust your camera mode and view by going to "Manage Camera View" in the Camera Options menu of your user dashboard. This allows you to access switching the camera between different modes, as well as using arrows and plus/minus signs to pan, tilt and zoom the camera angles to meet your needs for capturing and recording your classroom.
While different camera modes each have their purpose, Kloud-12 recommends leaving the mode in Quad View as a default, so that the full classroom is captured in the view.
Note - the camera will automatically reboot between modes when changing the view.
