  • Hawkeye Overview 1

    Hawkeye OverviewHawkeye 480C is an optical whiteboard capture system that works with your existingwhiteboard and markers. It enables you to capture, print and distribute whiteboard notes asfull-color, digitally enhanced images. You can even use Hawkeye to capture, print anddistribute flip chart pages that have been taped onto a whiteboard.

    Basically, Hawkeye consists of two parts: a fixed Camera Boom and a Control Unit.

    Control Unit

    Hawkeye 480C Optical Whiteboard Capture System

    Hawkeye also comes with Image-Saving Software that can be installed on a computerwithin the same local area network as the Control Unit in order to automatically savecaptured images on that computer.

    Camera BoomThe Camera Boom can be mounted above any standard whiteboard. It includes three digitalcameras, each with fixed focus and auto exposure. The digital cameras in the CameraBoom take color photographs of the notes you’ve made on your whiteboard. Before theimage is stored on the Control Unit, the photographs taken by the three cameras arestitched together, the background is whitened, the writing is sharpened and the color isimproved.

    Control UnitThe Control Unit includes an embedded processor with a built-in Web server, as well asfirmware for capturing and enhancing images. It stores approximately 20 captured imagesat a time. A small screen on the Control Unit displays easy-to-follow instructions. Buttonson the Control Unit enable you to configure the Control Unit, capture whiteboard imagesand perform various other functions.

    You can connect the Control Unit to a network and use Image-Saving Software toautomatically save images captured by the Control Unit to a computer within the samenetwork. You can use the Control Unit with a local printer or a network printer. You caneven use Hawkeye with multiple whiteboards. As many as four Camera Booms can becontrolled by one Control Unit.

    Image-Saving SoftwareThe Image-Saving Software that comes with the Hawkeye 480C automatically savesimages captured at the Control Unit to a specified file path on a computer within the samenetwork. The software generates an index of the images captured in each session as anHTML page that can be opened using a Web browser. This index enables you to view,copy and print captured images at your desk.

    Hawkeye FeaturesOnce it has been installed, Hawkeye is always ready. Because it simply photographs whatyou’ve written on your whiteboard, Hawkeye is also always reliable. To capture the informationon your whiteboard, just press the Capture button on the Control Unit.

    Hawkeye can be used with or without a network connection. If the Control Unit is connected toa local area network, you can use the Image-Saving Software to automatically save everyimage captured at the Control Unit to a computer within the same network. With a networkconnection, current images are also immediately available upon capture from the IP address orhost name displayed on the Control Unit.

    If the Control Unit isn’t connected to a network, the images can’t be saved. In this case thecaptured images must be printed and distributed in hard copy.

    Stand-Alone Control UnitYou don’t need a network connection or even a computer to use Hawkeye. All you need is theHawkeye Camera Boom and Control Unit, plus a printer. You can capture, delete and printwhiteboard notes all within the same room.

    You can store approximately 20 images on a stand-alone Control Unit, but you can’t save theimages. Once you start a new session or exceed the maximum number of images allowed,previously captured images will no longer be available on the Control Unit. The images youcapture on a stand-alone Control Unit must be distributed in hard copy. In order to do that,you’ll need to attach a printer to the Control Unit.

  • Hawkeye Overview 3

    Networked Control UnitA Hawkeye Control Unit that has been connected to a network can do everything a stand-aloneControl Unit can do and more. If your Control Unit is connected to a local area network, everyimage captured at the Control Unit can be automatically saved on a computer within the samenetwork. Just install and configure the Image-Saving Software on a computer networked to theControl Unit, and every image you capture at the Control Unit will be automatically saved to afile on that computer. Anyone with a copy of these files can then view, copy and print theimages captured by Hawkeye.

    With a network connection, current images are also immediately available upon capture fromthe Sessions page. To access this page, open a Web browser to the IP address or host nameof the Control Unit.

  • 4 Installing the Camera Boom and Control Unit

    Installing the Camera Boom and Control UnitIf you have one whiteboard in the room, you only need one Camera Boom. However, ifyou have more than one whiteboard, you may want to take advantage of Hawkeye’s abilityto control multiple Camera Booms from a single Control Unit. You can use one ControlUnit to capture the notes from up to four different whiteboards by mounting a CameraBoom above each one. The installation procedure varies, depending on whether you planto use one Camera Boom or several.

    Single Camera Boom with a Control UnitTo install a Camera Boom and Control Unit that captures the notes from one whiteboard,you’ll need to:

    1 Mount the Camera Boom on the wall.

    2 Mount the Control Unit on the wall.

    3 Connect the Camera Boom to the Control Unit.

    Multiple Camera Booms with a Control UnitThe procedure for installing a Hawkeye 480C system that captures notes from multiplewhiteboards is similar to the procedure for installing a system that captures notes from asingle whiteboard. However, when there are multiple whiteboards, you’ll need to install aCamera Boom above each whiteboard, connect the Camera Booms to each other in adaisy chain pattern and connect the last Camera Boom in the chain to the Control Unit.

    NOTE: When you order additional Camera Booms for your Hawkeye 480C, you mayreceive the Hawkeye CAM Installation and User’s Guide. However, the informationincluded in that manual does not apply to your Hawkeye 480C.

    Step 2: Fasten the wall bracket to the wall

    WARNING: DON’T USE A HAMMER TO FORCE THE E-Z TOGGLE DRYWALLANCHORS INTO THE WALL AS THIS COULD RESULT IN DAMAGE TO THE CAMERABOOM AND WALL SURFACE.

    1 Using a Phillips No. 2 screwdriver, thread E-Z toggle drywall anchors into markedlocations that aren’t at a wall stud.

    NOTE: The supplied drywall anchors are not suitable for walls thicker than 5/8" (1.59cm). If the wall is constructed of drywall thicker than 5/8" (1.59 cm), use non-toggledrywall anchors for double-layer drywall.

    If the marked location is at a wall stud, don’t use a drywall anchor. Use a No. 8 by 1.5"(3.81 cm) long wood screw for wood studs or a self-drilling metal screw for metal studs.

    2 Align the Camera Boom wall bracket with the drywall anchors. Insert screws into theE-Z toggle drywall anchors as follows:

    a Press the screw firmly into the drywall anchor using the Phillips screwdriver untilapproximately 1/3 of the screw remains.

    b Thread the remaining length of the screw into the drywall anchor until it’s tight. Atfirst the screw will thread with unusual ease, but it will gradually require greatereffort as the clamp inside the wall moves forward.

  • Configuring a Networked Control Unit 19

    Configuring a Networked Control UnitIt’s easier to share the information captured from your whiteboard when your Control Unit isconnected to a network. When the Control Unit has a network connection, you can use theImage-Saving Software to automatically save every image captured at the Control Unit to acomputer within the same network. With a network connection, current images are alsoimmediately available by opening a Web browser to the IP address or Host Name of theControl Unit.

    This section explains how to configure a Control Unit that will be connected to a network.For information about configuring a Control Unit that won’t be used with a network, refer topages 14–18.

    The procedure for configuring a networked Control Unit varies, depending on whether IPaddresses are assigned dynamically by the DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) ormanually by a systems administrator using Static IP.

    DHCP NetworkTo configure a Control Unit that will be used on a DHCP network, you’ll need to perform thefollowing four tasks:

    1 Connect the Control Unit to the network (page 20).

    2 Connect the Control Unit to a power source (pages 21–22).

    3 Change network settings using the Control Unit (pages 25–28) or a Web browser(page 30–31).

    4 If you want to print captured images to a network printer while working at thewhiteboard, select a network printer using the Control Unit (page 31–33) or a Webbrowser (page 34).

    Static IP NetworkTo configure a Control Unit that will be used on a Static IP network, you’ll need to performthe following four tasks:

    1 Connect the Control Unit to a power source (pages 21–22).

    2 Change network settings using the Control Unit (pages 25–28).

    3 Connect the Control Unit to the network (page 20).

    4 If you want to print captured images to a network printer while working at thewhiteboard, select a network printer using the Control Unit (page 31–33) or a Webbrowser (page 34).

    Connecting the Control Unit to a NetworkNOTE: If your network uses Static IP addresses, you don’t need to connect the Control Unitto the main network until you’ve finished configuring the Control Unit. For more information,refer to the list of tasks required for a Static IP network on the previous page.

    1 Insert one end of the main network cable into the network port underneath the ControlUnit. The network cable is usually blue.

  • Refining Image Alignment and Adding an Image Frame 37

    Refining Image Alignment and Adding anImage FrameThe Camera Boom houses three digital cameras. Each camera captures a portion of thenotes on your whiteboard. After the notes have been captured, the three images arestitched together into a single snapshot and excess wall surface that was captured by thecameras is cropped. During this process, the image is normalized and keystoning iscorrected.

    The processes used to stitch, crop, normalize and otherwise improve image quality occurautomatically each time your whiteboard notes are captured. All you need to do is refineimage alignment. Under most circumstances, you only need to refine alignment once afteryou first install and configure the Hawkeye 480C. However, if the Camera Boom orwhiteboard is moved, you may need to repeat the alignment process.

    You can also specify whether you want to include a frame in captured images.

    Numbering Camera BoomsIf you have multiple Camera Booms connected to your Control Unit, you’ll need to assign aBoard number to each Camera Boom before you can begin refining image alignment.

    1 Use a black or dark blue dry-erase marker to print a number on the bottom of eachwhiteboard. You can use any sequence of numbers between 1 and 9. However, forsimplicity you may want to number the whiteboards from left to right beginning with thenumber 1.

  • 54 Working with Captured Images at Your Desk

    Working with Captured Images at Your DeskIf the Control Unit is connected to a local area network, captured images can be accessedon a Windows-based computer in two ways: by using Image-Saving Software files or byaccessing a Sessions page for the Control Unit.

    The files created by the Image-Saving Software provide access to both the capturedimages currently stored on the Control Unit and images no longer available from theControl Unit itself. As long as the Image-Saving Software is active, images captured at theControl Unit will be saved to the computer on which the software has been installed. TheImage-Saving Software creates an index of all the captured images within a session as anHTML page that can be opened with any Web browser to view, copy and print the capturedimages. Each captured image is also available as a separate JPEG file.

    The Sessions page only provides access to the images currently stored on the Control Unit.The maximum number of images that can be stored on a Control Unit is approximately 20.When this storage capacity is exceeded, the captured images will no longer be available onthe Sessions page. A Web browser can be used on any computer within the same networkas the Control Unit to access the Sessions page.
