Select “Laptop” and “Send to Projector” on touchscreen Logoff 1 2 1 Connect cables from Teaching Station to your laptop (sends signal out through the Teaching Station to the Projector) (connect network cable for internet, if you want laptop internet) * Press “Laptop” and “Send to Projector” on Teaching Station touchscreen * Being pre-configured for the TSJr does not log you in automatically for a Teaching Station Teaching Station login happens on the touchscreen, before you hook up the laptop 13-03-12 1 You may have to: - Manually set your laptop display to “Mirror / Clone / Dual Display” for video feed (page 3) - Set your laptop IP address to ‘Dynamic” for internet (page 4) Connections TEACHING STATION CABLES HDMI video HDM etwork (internet) network VGA video audio THE PORTS ON YOUR LAPTOP Apple laptop with Mini DisplayPort - requires adapter which you supply HDMI VGA AUDIO NETWORK Thunderbolt Mini DisplayPort VGA VG HDMI 2 Clone Screen (for video) When you plug in the VGA cable, most likely your laptop will detect the projector and send an identical image of your screen out the VGA port to the projector. However it’s possible the projector will not be detected and you will have to ‘activate’ your VGA output by setting your laptop to “dual clone display” or “duplicate display” or “Mirror display” In most laptops this is done by pressing the FN key (bottom left) in combination with F4, F7 or F8. Look for these symbols: fn Typically, the “fn” makes your regular keys perform an alternate function. The “IOI” symbol is the industry standard for ‘display ’ Squished Image? The image on your laptop may looked stretched or squished as it has adjusted itself to the projector resolution (which is either 1024x768 or 1280x800) *** Mirror Display Fails on TSJr? Try setting your screen resolution to or (projector VGA resolution) 1024 x 768 1280 x 800 (projector HDMI resolution) 3 DHCP / IP settings works with does not work with (for internet) Dynamic IP (’Automatic’) Static IP (’User configured’) Most operating systems make your IP ‘dynamic’ by default - which is what the TS (Teaching Station) needs.
