AIRC 127: Smart Room Instructions

AIRC 127 is a video telepresence room that seats 12 people around loose tables and chairs.

This room has a widescreen projector which will match the resolution of laptops with widescreen displays. Best results will be with the laptop display resolution set to 1920×1080, but the projector will automatically adjust to other resolutions such as 1024×768. The video conferencing equipment in this room works best when connected to other video telepresence rooms. Additional steps are required when connecting to a desktop based video conferencing solution.  Skype for Business and WebEx are not currently supported in this room. Please contact Classroom Technology Services at x2759 for assistance when scheduling video conferences in this room.
