Starting a Local Presentation
To begin using the room for a presentation, press Power On on the Crestron AV control panel to turn on the projector. Then choose your desired input source by pressing the corresponding button such as PC, Laptop or Doc Camera. This will project the image for the selected source. Power on the PC (2) in the rack if needed and login with your Trent username and password. Insert your USB memory stick if presenting from that device. Optionally, present from a personal laptop by connecting to one of the adapter cables on the lectern. Both HDMI (3) and VGA (4) are available. The optimal display resolution for presentation is 1280 x 800 which can be set through your desktop properties (Windows) or System Preferences (Mac). Switch from one input source to the other as desired by pressing the control buttons anytime . Note; Mac users will need to bring the appropriate Apple adapter to connect with one of the lectern adapters.
If presenting from the document camera, power on the unit, position your document on the base and select Doc Camera on the panel.
To adjust volume during a local presentation, use the Volume dial on the panel.
Temporarily cancel video projection by pressing Display Mute. Press again to un-mute.
When you are finished using the equipment in the room, logoff the local PC and press Power Off on the control panel to shut off the projector.
