1. Overview

This section guides you through the process of automating image capture using the Lensiora Intraoral Camera, ensuring seamless integration with supported Imaging Software Applications. Automation can be achieved through various input methods, tailored to enhance your workflow and operational efficiency.

Input Methods for Image Capture

The Lensiora system accommodates multiple input methods for capturing images, designed to suit diverse operational preferences and setups:

  • Camera Button Commands: Utilize the built-in buttons on the Lensiora Intraoral Camera to capture images directly.
  • Vocal Commands: When a microphone is connected to the PC, voice commands can be enabled for hands-free operation.
  • Foot Pedal Commands: For practices that prefer foot-operated controls, this option is available with the connection of a compatible foot pedal to the PC.

2. Accessing Lensiora Software Options

Configuration and customization of the automation process are managed through the Lensiora Software Status Dialog. This interface is easily accessible via the Lensiora Icon located in the System Tray.

Lensiora Icon Identification: Look for an icon resembling a yellow digital camera with a black center, indicating the camera is successfully connected and recognized by the system. A red center signifies that the camera is not currently connected.

The Status Dialog is divided into two primary sections for comprehensive control over the system settings:

  • Status Info: Provides real-time information on the status of the Lensiora system and connected devices.
  • Other Options: A suite of customizable settings that allow you to fine-tune the operation of the Lensiora camera and its interaction with your imaging software.

Additionally, when a foot pedal is detected by the system, an exclusive section becomes available, offering dedicated controls for pedal-operated commands.

3. Status Info Section Summary

The “Status Info” section in the Lensiora Software Status Dialog plays a crucial role by providing immediate insights into the system’s operational status and compatibility with dental imaging software. Here’s a streamlined overview of its components:

  • Active Imaging Software Application: Identifies the dental imaging software in use (e.g., XDR, Dexis, EagleSoft), ensuring Lensiora’s seamless integration.
  • Lensiora Camera Status: Shows if the Lensiora Camera is connected and ready (“Connected”) or not detected (“Not Connected”), with the System Tray icon changing its accent color accordingly (black for connected, red for not detected).
  • Foot Pedal Name and Status: Displays the connected foot pedal’s name and status, visible only when a foot pedal is installed and recognized by the system.
  • Warnings and Errors: Alerts you to any issues affecting camera functionality or software integration, including important notifications like the Lensiora Software License status.

Voice Recognition

Access to the “Speech Config” button, enabling the configuration of the voice recognition features, is conditional upon the presence of a connected microphone. This ensures functionality is only offered when the hardware supports it. The speech configuration dialog, accessible via this button, offers several adjustable parameters:

  • Speech Component Enabled: Toggle the voice recognition module on or off. When enabled, it becomes active during a video stream from the Lensiora Camera.
  • Volume: Adjusts the microphone’s sensitivity, helping to mitigate background noise.
  • Accuracy: Sets the precision needed for voice commands to be recognized. Higher accuracy demands clearer speech without noise or accent, while a lower setting is more forgiving of variations.
  • Commands Options: Allows customization of voice commands for capturing and saving images. The default commands are “SAVE!” for image capture and “DONE!” for image importation or saving.

The effectiveness of speech recognition is greatly influenced by the quality of the microphone used and the amount of ambient noise, impacting the system’s ability to accurately interpret commands.

Plugin Options for Imaging Software

The “Plugin Options” button is made available when the currently selected imaging software supports additional customization. This feature allows users to adjust specific settings for a more integrated operation with Lensiora, enhancing functionality and user experience.

Overview

These configurable options serve to enhance the Lensiora system’s flexibility, accommodating various operational preferences and technological setups. By enabling precise control over voice recognition settings and software behavior, users can optimize their workflow for efficiency and convenience.

4. Other Options Section Overview

The “Other Options” section in the Lensiora Software Status Dialog offers customization settings for the video stream configuration, allowing users to tailor their experience based on specific preferences and requirements.

Video Stream Configuration Settings

  • Available settings in this section include:
    • Use DirectShow 9 Rendering Engine in Lensiora Twain: Activating this option allows for the utilization of Video Mixing Renderer version 9 with both the Lensiora Twain module and the Lensiora Save application, optimizing performance for users on Windows 10 and 11. However, for those on older systems, such as Windows 7, or those with USB display adapters or outdated drivers, it may be beneficial to deactivate this setting. Doing so reverts Lensiora to using version 7 of the Video Mixing Renderer, ensuring compatibility and stable operation across a broader range of system configurations.
    • Disable Sound on Camera Click: When activated, this option mutes the sound that typically occurs when capturing an image with the camera button. If left unchecked, users will hear a camera shutter noise upon pressing the button to take images.
    • Force Lensiora DirectShow Filter: This setting ensures the Lensiora DirectShow Filter is always used in the video stream processing, regardless of the default DirectShow filter chain configuration. The inclusion of the Lensiora DirectShow Filter allows for enhanced video stream processing and enables the functionality of the Speech Recognition feature as well as the AutoSave when powering off the camera.
    • Camera Resolution Setting: This option allows you to select from all available resolutions for your connected camera, saving your choice for future use. Initially set to the lowest resolution to ensure broad compatibility, it’s advisable to adjust this setting to the highest available resolution post-installation to maximize image quality.

    NOTE: On Lensiora HD, only the lowest resolution of 640×480 will allow the use of the Zoom button.

Enhancing Video Stream Performance

These options provide advanced users with the flexibility to adjust video rendering and sound settings, ensuring the Lensiora system meets their specific operational needs and preferences. By customizing these settings, users can optimize the functionality and performance of their Lensiora Intraoral Camera, particularly regarding image capturing and processing capabilities.
