Four Steps

The following steps will set up EpocCam to work with your computer. (Estimated time, >10 minutes.)
Click each heading to display the steps.

1. Connect your iPhone to Your Computer

You can use your WiFi network, or a lighting or USB-C cable to connect your iPhone to your computer.
To use WiFi, make sure your iPhone and computer are on the same WiFi network.

Tip - A cable connection tends to produce the best video quality with the best stability. Your studio/classroom tripod kit includes a lightning cable, with a USB-C adaptor.

3. Purchase and install EpocCam

Be sure to purchase the Pro (not the free) version of EpocCam. You can request reimbursement of the $8 cost from Academic Tech staff.
