Room D106 must be reserved prior to use.
This room is equiped with a ceiling-mounted LCD projector, which displays to a 10-foot wide screen mounted at the front of the classroom (the switch to raise and lower the screen is located on the back wall of the classroom). The projector can accept input from both Macintosh and IBM-compatible PC's as well as from a VHS video player. The classroom is also equiped with audio speakers to provide full stereo sound during presentations.
A Dell Optiplex is the default input source for the projector; a mouse and keyboard are wired to the front of the classroom for convenient control of the PC. There are also video and audio ports located at the front of the classroom to which a computer can be connected to send output to the projector and speakers. An ethernet port is available to provide access to the internet via DHCP.
A control panel for the projector is located in the front of the classroom to the right of the projector screen. The COM button toggles the input to the projector from one of two computer channels. If a computer is connected to the video input in the front of the classroom, the projector will autosense the connection and accept input from that computer. If no computer is present, the display will default to the PC. If the display does not switch to the computer after connecting the video input, try the autoselect button, labeled *, to adjust the display to the currect computer.
A VCR is also wired to display through the projector. An accompanying receiver will send the audio signal to the speakers in the classroom. To select input from the VCR, use the button labeled VID on the control panel.
The VCR and PC are located in Room D108, adjacent to the rear of the classroom.
During normal office hours, the department lab staff is available to provide help in setting up and troubleshooting any problems with the equipment in D106.
