Computer (built-in)

Turn on the projector and select “PC” on the podium. If you are using the built-in MacMini, make sure the podium “Computer” switch is set to “Built-in”. The computer should be on, so just move the mouse or press any key on the keyboard to wake it up. You must authenticate with your TESC login to use the computer, and it may take a few extra moments to start up the first time you log in. If you don’t have a TESC login, call Media Services at x6270 for access. Always log out when you are done with the computer.

Computer (laptop)

Turn on the projector and select “PC” on the podium. If you are using your own laptop, make sure the podium “Computer” switch is set to “Portable”. Connect the VGA cable coming out of the podium to your computer, and if you will need to hear computer audio, plug the small audio plug into your headphone jack. An ethernet cable is also provided for internet access. For best results, wait until everything is connected before turning on your laptop, and it should automatically appear on the large screen.

Document Camera

Turn on the projector and select “Doc Cam” on the podium. Unfold the arms and lens of the document camera, taking care not to force them. Press the button on the document camera labeled “On/Off”. Place your document on the white surface. To temporarily freeze the image on the screen, press “Pause”, then press again to unfreeze.

DVD or CD

The DVD player is located in the equipment rack, so you will need a key to open it. After turning on the projector and selecting “DVD” on the podium, put your disc in the player, and use either the podium control buttons or the remote control (in the equipment rack drawer) to navigate.

VHS tape or TV

The VCR is located in the equipment rack, so you will need a key to open it. After turning on the projector and selecting “VCR” on the podium, put your tape in the player, and use either the podium control buttons or the remote control (in the equipment rack drawer) to control playback or change channels.

DV tape

The DV deck is located in the equipment rack, so you will need a key to open it. After turning on the projector and selecting “DVCAM” on the podium, put your tape in the player, and use the remote control (in the equipment rack drawer) to control playback.
