  1. Built in camera microphone is best used for class discussions where more than one person is actively contributing to the conversation. Most times this choice will pick up the entire room for classes.
  2. Lavalier microphone is best used when you want to move around and use your hands when presenting and you are the only one speaking. Connect the microphone to the input port on the top of the transmitter.
  3. Handheld microphone is best used when multiple people are speaking since the microphone can be passed from one person to another. Insure proper cleaning between users.

Turn on the device by pressing the power button until the light turns Green
