Re: RedHat Remote Exam supported hardware (cameras, mice, keyboards)

Hi Guys,

you have to be careful about that one (Evotor HD 720P). Looks there are different versions out there:

In the Manual it says it works with Linux ;o(

I tried that one:

https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B074QJW96C/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Unfortunately it is not working on:

- MacBook Pro, 15'', Early 2011, OS X High Sierra (tried directly on USB-Port and with USB-Dongle (USB 3.0 UGreen) 
UPDATE: only my internal camera was active whatever I did (attaching externa cam directly to usb or usb dongle

=> You can easily find out on the compability test on the third (i think?) page, through: 
1. the green light next to the internal cam being active. 
2. trying to cover the lense of the internal cam or external cam to see what reacs

- Lenovo ThinkPad T520, tried with above USB-Dongle.
UPDATE: tried attaching the cam directly to the usb-port of Lenovo ThinkPad 520 and that WORKED !

Talked to Redhat Remote Exam Support and the recommendation was, to always attach 
devices directly to the USB instead of through a USB Dongle. 
(which is now the case for my upcoming exam) 

-> Although card reader worked fine as well through usb-dongle (UGreen USB 3.0)

 

 

Best,

Jochen

Re: RedHat Remote Exam supported hardware (cameras, mice, keyboards)

Hi guys,

I would not recommend the EIVOTOR Webcam 720P either.

Mine also has no autofocus and it is a real hazzle, because you have identify yourself
with your id-card at the beginning of the exam, and it is either really small or if you put your id nearer to the lens it is blurry.

That's the one I used:

https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B074QJW96C/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Best,

Jochen

Re: RedHat Remote Exam supported hardware (cameras, mice, keyboards)

Hi,

that is currently my setup. No idea if there are any
requirements/restrictions not to do this.


Best,


Jochen

Re: RedHat Remote Exam supported hardware (cameras, mice, keyboards)

I was using USB camera Logitech C922 (PRO HD Stream Webcam 1080p ,  angle 78deg).
Camera passed all the tests. Also camera's microfon passed the tests without any issues.
USB cable is long enough. Camera has a small tripod, but I did not need that during exam.
I used it together with my old MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015 - OSX 10.11.6 El Capitan).
