IOMEGA BUZ INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Buz Multimedia Producer is a technologically sophisticated package. Ensure your
system has the latest video and audio drivers installed. It is recommended that you
optimize your hard drive using the Windows 95/98 system tools such as Scan Disk and Disk
Defragmenter. Before installation, disable all system crash recovery, anti-virus software,
or other background-running software. For additional troubleshooting information, see
Iomegas web site: www.iomega.com.
The Iomega BUZ software MUST be installed before the Iomega BUZ hardware! BUZ will
not function correctly if you do not load your software first!
Install the BUZ software: Start your computer. From the Windows 95/98 Main screen,
insert the CD marked "Start Here (Disk 1) in the CD-ROM drive. Follow the

to use either the ARIEL REALCAP or CAPTURE programs.
MJPEG IMAGE ORDER
If it appears that the images are "jerky" or are being displayed in a
"zigzag" manner, the field order probably needs to be reversed. The field order
is specified using the following steps.
Depending on the hardware and software combinations used for recording and displaying
the AVI files, it is possible for the order of the displayed fields to be reversed. It is
also possible for the same AVI file to play in normal order on one computer and in reverse
order on another computer! For this reason, the Ariel CAPTURE, TRIM and DIGITIZE programs
provides the option to specify the order for displaying the images of the AVI files.
The APAS system uses hardware and software that has Motion JPEG image hardware
compression that also complies with the major hardware vendors. After capturing the video
to the hard drive, the APAS system allows separation of each frame to its two component
When capturing a video sequence utilizing the full speed provided with today's video
standards, it is normally required to use special VCR equipment with field-by-field
stepping capabilities. Industry standard hardware and APAS software modules make it
possible to capture video sequences from a VCR or camcorder directly to the computer hard
drive without special requirement of expensive VCR equipment. Any VCR can be used as a
video source with the APAS.
A standard video picture is made up of odd and even lines across the screen. Television
standards require these lines to be interlaced. This means only half of the lines are
displayed in one field. The first (odd) set of lines is displayed in the first field while
the second (even) set of lines is displayed in the second field. These two fields comprise
a frame, which is a complete picture.
- Select CAPTURE and CAPTURE PARAMETERS. The Algorithm Defaults menu will be
displayed. Click on the STREAM tab to display the Streaming Capture options menu.
Select either Normal or Reverse order in the MJPEG section. The current selection is
indicated by the black dot to the left of the option. NOTE: When this option is changed,
it affects all other APAS software modules where the AVI file can be displayed (Capture,
Trim, Digitize, Display, Vectors etc.)
- Select OK to proceed or CANCEL to abort.
- Select OPTIONS and MJPEG. The MJPEG Options menu will be displayed.
Left-click either Normal or Reverse order. The current selection is indicated by the black

The Image Order information is stored in the WIN.INI file. Once this parameter is set
in the Capture, Trim, or Digitize module, the Ariel software will remember the current
setting. The following information is listed in the WIN.INI file of the APAS computer.

ADI: The Iomega Buz must be installed in a precise order (software first,
then hardware, then an update file). Was this done correctly? The precise
