Purpose - Tidewater Community College

Purpose: This document provides quick-start instruction on how to use the Learning Technology System
specific to the Pungo Auditorium, room F-133 in the Pungo Building of the Virginia Beach Campus. If you
are looking for information on another classroom LTS, you can find a quick-start guide for the touch
panel in your classroom under TCC Training Documents at: http://www.tcc.edu/faculty/av/training.htm
To your left you can see the LTS lectern for
the Auditorium located in front of the
stage. F-133 is unique in that with the
exception of the PC most of the standard
LTS components are located in the F-133
Control Booth and not in the LTS lectern.
If you require use of the LTS Document
Camera, the DVD player, the Blu Ray player
or microphone audio contact the Virginia
Beach Campus Classroom Support
Technicians at avrequests@tcc.edu or 8227159.
Inside the LTS lectern in the uppermost left hand corner
you will find the VGA and audio connections you will
utilize if you intend on displaying your own laptop.
Simply plug into these connections and press the
appropriate button on the touch panel itself.
On top of the LTS Lectern, on the left hand side, you will
find what is known as an XLR connection. This is a place
where you can plug in a microphone to reinforce your
voice during a presentation in such a large space.
Sitting on top of the LTS lectern is the Crestron
Control Touch Panel which reads:
Tidewater Community College
Pungo Auditorium
with a “Push To Start System” button at the
bottom. When you press “Start System” a red
status bar will let you know the system is
warming up.
The HD projector in the control booth will
power on and the powered screen on the
stage will begin to lower.
Along the top of the touch panel are the buttons
for all the various inputs you can use through the
LTS. From left to right these inputs are:
Computer, Laptop, Doc Cam, DVD, Blu Ray, Aux
Video, Settings and Exit.
Pressing any of these buttons will take you to a
control page for the device you intend to display.
Whichever input you select will display on the
projection screen and will have a red bar under its
icon on the touch panel to indicate it as the
selected input.
When you select either the DVD Player or
the Blu Ray Player you will the control
screen for each device will display. This
menu will give you all the functionality of a
remote control, allowing you to control the
video players in the control booth from the
lectern on the floor.
You will also notice that at the very bottom of every page
is the volume control; arrows on either side of the blue
slider bar allow you to raise and lower the master volume
for the room. To the far left of the slider bar is a small
icon that looks like a speaker, pressing this button allows
you to mute the audio in the room.
When you press the “Settings” button on the
touch panel you will be taken to the menu you
see pictured to the right. This menu gives you
control of the projector in the control booth
and the volume of the microphone located on
the LTS lectern. Below the projector icon you
have three buttons: “Power On, Power Off and
Video Mute” These buttons light up to show
you what the status of your projector is. If you
press “Video Mute” the projector will show a
black screen without powering down –
allowing you to have a section of your
presentation ready to show but not currently
When your presentation is complete, press the
exit button on the right hand side of the touch
panel, this will bring up an option that says “Are
You Sure You Want to Exit?”
Press the door icon to exit or the “no” icon to
cancel and return to the controls.
Once you’ve pressed exit you will be taken to a
cool down page as the screens raise and the
projector power off.
LAPTOP INSTRUCTION: When using a laptop as a display source, connect your laptop via the supplied
VGA and audio cables pictured on page 2 of this document. Once you have connected your laptop to
these cables, press the laptop input button. Some laptops will immediately display once you have
selected the appropriate display button for either the right or left projector. If your laptop does not
immediately display you will have to use the multi-display function button on your laptop, this is usually
a Function Key on your laptop but which button it is varies from one manufacturer to the next so you
will need to be familiar with the laptop you are using.
The Pungo Auditorium in F-133 is a unique system and this document serves as a very broad Quick Start
Guide, to schedule a one-on-one or group training on this system feel free to contact the Learning
Technology Applications Trainer at: 822-1937 or via e-mail at mblanchard@tcc.edu.
If you experience technical difficulties with your Learning Technology System you can submit a help desk
request through e-mail to helpdesk@tcc.edu.
