Tips for capturing a video with a robot:

1.  The Swivl Robot will track the Primary Marker while recording. Be sure to stay between 5 and 20 feet away from the Swivl base while holding the Primary Marker.

2. Tap the Robot & Marker icon at the top right corner to: 

  • ensure the robot-device connection is successful before you start recording;
  • make sure all of the markers are on and paired with the base if you are going to use several markers for the video recording;
  • adjust marker sensitivity to find out the best configuration for your recording environment;
  • find brief setup instructions on how to connect your device to the robot if it is not connected yet.

3. You can connect speakers to your Swivl base if you want the Primary Marker used by the teacher to be amplified while recording the video with your Teams app.

Video Capture Features:

  • Multi-Camera Options: Tap the Video icon on the Home screen to open the Multi-Camera recording menu. From there, you will access your join pin for other devices to join your Multi-Camera recording or you can verify when other devices have joined successfully. For more information on Multi-Camera, visit our article
  • Marker Options: Tap the Marker icon on the Home screen to open the Marker menu.  Change the volume at which audio is recorded from each marker by tapping each marker and adjusting the sliders. You can always verify which markers are turned on by opening the Marker menu. Markers that are turned on will be filled in with their marker color; if they are turned off, they will show black with only the outline of their marker color. 
  • Every time recording is started and then stopped, a new project will be created in the Teams app Library.
