Discovery Kit 6 & 7
The Discovery Kit 7 contains 2 x iPad (camera) devices and 2 x iPod Touch (microphone) devices.
When paired together the kit enables you to capture dual view video with 4 audio channels.
Note: DK 6 and 7's have been retired from sale. We have since released the Discovery Kit 8, which eliminates the iPods as they are no longer updating to newest iOS version.
The app has 2 modes:
- Camera mode
- Microphone mode
NOTE: Make sure the devices are in the correct mode
The iPads need to be in Camera mode and the iPods need to be in Microphone mode.
If you find the app is on the wrong mode, from within the Record app, select Settings, Change Mode then select the mode you want to change to.
How to Pair the Devices
Pairing the cameras
See this article for a full guide to pairing two camera devices.
Pairing the microphones
Make sure the app is open on the iPods. Open the pairing manager on the corresponding iPad. Tap Audio to see the iPods that can be paired as microphones. For general use, we recommend that the blue iPod is paired to the blue iPad and the green iPod is paired to the green iPad. Once everything is paired correctly, the device name will show underneath Audio in the pairing menu.
Note: The microphones/iPods need to be in microphone mode. See changing mode.
You can also access the pairing menu by tapping the pairing icon on the right-hand side of the screen before beginning the reflection.
This is what the pairing menu looks like on the blue and green iPads when everything is paired as normal:
