Setting up the Playstation Move

The PlayStation Move is relatively easy to setup. When setting up the PlayStation console and Eye Camera, the camera will need to be placed below an Interactive Whiteboard (IWB). The USB cord from the camera is relatively short.  If there is a large distance between the camera and the PlayStation Console, which also needs to be connected to the Audio/Video outputs on the IWB, you may need to purchase a USB extension cable for the camera. These can be purchased for approximately $15 (eBay is a good place to start).


NOTE: The console is designed to either lie horizontally or stand vertically (with a stand). It is recommended in a school setting that you lay the console horizontally.


This way is much more stable and as people can be boisterous while playing, it ensures that the console won’t risk being knocked over. If a console in a standing position happens to fall over during gameplay the game disk may be damaged.   


Step 1: Positioning the Eye Camera.

Place the camera below the IWB. Use a table or other piece of furniture to place the camera at the required height.


Tips for optimal performance:




Step 2: Connecting the camera to the console.

Plug the camera into one of the two USB ports on the front of the console.






Step 3: Plugging in the power supply.

Plug the power supply into the power socket in the rear of the console.





Step 4: Connecting the component Video/Audio cable to the console. 

Plug the component Video/Audio cable into the AV input in the rear of the console.  



Step 5: Connecting the console to the IWB.

To connect the console to the Interactive Whiteboard you need to locate the IWB’s output panel. It should look similar to the one on the right. It will generally be located near the computer which is connected to the IWB.


Plug the component Video/Audio cable in the colour-coded Video In and Speaker Audio points.


When you are ready to play the PlayStation simply use the projector’s remote controller to switch the input settings from ‘Computer’ to ‘Video’.
