Image Configuration


Setting the Image Configuration for networked machines (same platform)

1. To configure the imaging features in DVMax you must first create a shared folder on your server. This folder will house all shared documents from your patient files. Create a shared folder on your server. Name it accordingly such as “DVMax Images”

2. The imaging feature within DVMax requires Quicktime to function properly. Ensure each terminal has a full version of Quicktime installed.

3. If a terminal does not have Quicktime installed, it is supplied on the DVMax startup disks or at the following address for downloading: Install Quicktime.

4. Open DVMax

5. From the section menu select system constants;

6. From the system constants screen select the user settings tab;

7. From the field named Path to Images Folder: select Set to browse for the central image folder previously created.

8. A window named Choose a folder will appear. Select the central image folder created previously. Select the Choose button

9. The path to the folder will then be visible in the field

10. Select OK to return to the main screen. The configuration process has been completed.

Setting the Image Configuration for networked machines (mixed platforms)

11. In cases where a network is a mixture of Mac and PC’s, an additional step must be taken. This step is needed to overcome the differences between Mac and PC path names. Path names chosen on a PC will not be recognized by a Mac and vice versa.

12. In these cases, identify the platform with the fewest number of terminals. With these terminals, individual preferences must be adjusted to create a path to the shared server folder.

13. From the File menu, choose Preferences;

14. Select the Assorted Prefs tab;

15. From the Document Path: or Image Path: field, choose Select Path;

16. A new window appears named Choose a folder. Select the shared image folder chosen earlier.

17. Repeat this process on every terminal you wish to access shared images.
