Instructions on using the technology in this type of room


Fixed Chairs - Qty: 80

Chairs that are somehow fixed in place, and not able to be moved around their room.

Instructor Station PC - Qty: 1

This is a Core i7-3770 CPU with 8GB of RAM, a 128GB solid state drive, CD/DVD ROM drive, and integrated Intel HD video.

Touch Panel Control System - Qty: 1

Start here: This is a touch-activated control panel that activates (powers up) and selects the display, audio and computer equipment in the room. Some touch panels are as large as a computer monitor, and may enter a sleep mode. Tap them to wake them up. For full information, read the step-by-step instructions below.

Please remember to select 'Power Off' before leaving the room.

Projectors, Dual - Qty: 1

This dual-display system allows the user to present material from two different a/v sources at the same time. The touch panel is used to select which source goes to which display. There are basic settings along the top row and an advanced routing page to enable you to get more creative with your display. "PC display 1" is the Instructor Station PC's main desktop; "PC display 2" is an extension of that desktop. Sources sent to the second display will preview on the touch panel. This preview window can be enlarged by touching the display as indicated. A second touch restores the controls. Dual display rooms offer significant flexibility but they are somewhat complex. If you would like an orientation please call Instructional Media Services (83059).
