When you install Microsoft Lync 2010 communications software, it detects
communications devices that are connected to your computer, including your
webcam. You can also add or switch devices after you install Lync 2010.
Although you need a webcam to make a video call, you do not need one to receive
a video call.
- Open Lync, click the Options button , and then click Video Device. If your camera is correctly connected to your
computer, the video picture is displayed. If you have another program open,
such as your webcam program, you won’t see the video picture until you close
- If you have more than one video device and want to switch, select it from
the drop-down list. If you have only one device connected, that is all that is
displayed in the drop-down list.
- To adjust any settings, including color balance, contrast, and brightness,
and black-and-white mode, click the Webcam Settings button.
Click OK when complete.
