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
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.
Note: When using Dual Projector Mode, the audio that comes out of the program source will follow whichever was the
last source to be 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.
