This guide will cover the setup and configuration of the LED IC100 intraoral camera for use in any Apteryx imaging software.
This device is a true "plug-and-play" device, and does not require drivers to install. Simply plug the camera into any USB 2.0 or 3.0 slot, and Windows will detect the sensor automatically.
In order to enable the capture button on the camera, as well as eliminate video feed lag, a couple settings will need to be adjusted within the software.
- After plugging the camera in, open your Apteryx software and access Directvideo (as if to capture an image).
- Go to Video Options > Still Pin and Other Video Sizes. Enable I want to capture from the still pin. This will enable the capture button on the device.
- Verify EM2820 Chipset is selected under the Capture Buttons menu, as this will ensure the correct communication is expected from the hardware capture button.
- Go to Video Options > Video Capture Pin and change the color compression drop-down from MPEG to YUY2. This will get rid of any video feed lag and allow you to take more precise images.
(DCV/XVCapture users: after changing the compression, you will need to capture at least one image for the setting to persist.)
NOTE: These settings need to be applied per workstation. The settings are also dependent on USB port, so if the camera is to be used in multiple ports (or if the camera runs the risk of being used in multiple USB ports by being routinely unplugged), these settings will need to be applied for each individual port the camera is being (or could be) plugged into.
