Connecting a laptop
  1. Turn on the touch screen panel by pressing it anywhere. The controls for the screen are next to the door, or you can press the Screen Down button on the touch screen to bring the screen down. Press the Computer button on the touch screen then press the Laptop button on the second screen to turn on the projector and select the laptop.
  2. Connect the VGA or HDMI cable from the wallplate beneath the screen to the correct port on the laptop. An adapter may be necessary if the laptop does not have a VGA or HDMI monitor port. There is an HDMI cable with a ring of adapters in the media closet.
  3. VGA: Connect the audio cable to the headphone jack on the laptop if you wish to use the sound system in the room.
    HDMI: Audio jack is not required. On MacBooks using the HDMI adapter, you may need to go to System Preferences – Sound and select HDMI as the sound input.
  4. Power up the laptop. If the laptop display is not shown, configure the laptop to send output to a second display.
  5. Make sure the amplifier is powered on. Adjust the volume on the touch screen.
Using the DVD/VCR player
  1. Turn on the touch screen panel by pressing it anywhere.
  2. Press the DVD button to play a DVD, or the VCR button to play a VHS tape.
  3. Insert the DVD or VHS tape you wish to show in the DVD/VCR combo player in the equipment rack in the media closet, and press play on the touch screen panel. Use the controls on the touch screen to control the player.

Using the microphones
  1. For wireless microphones, choose a microphone and turn on the receiver in the media closet labelled with the same number as the microphone. You can’t use both a lapel and handheld microphone that are labelled with the same number, since they will interfere with each other.

  2. Confirm or cancel the shutdown.
  3. Place the touch screen control panel on the charging dock in the media closet and lock the media cabinet.
