Cabot Hall – ASEAN Auditorium Select Presentation Mode When you first use the classroom, the audio visual system allows you to select the best presentation experience for your audience. Single Projector Mode Use this mode if you intend to have a stationary presenter or an instructor who will be off to the side writing on the Wall Talker. Presentations with lots of text will benefit. Dual Projector Mode Use this mode for your standard classroom environment in which the two side projection screens will be used either in tandem or independently. After choosing your presentation mode, the touch screen refreshes to show a list of available displays and program sources in the left navigation sidebar. An audio beep will be heard indicating that the system is warming up. To project a source, first select the desired display then select the appropriate program source. The list of displays is dependent on the presentation mode that was selected.

For example, if the left projector was selected first to display the lectern computer and the right projector was subsequently selected to display a Blu-Ray DVD, the speakers in the auditorium would output sound for the Blu-Ray player and not for the lectern computer.
