Input Panel Instructions

NOTE: These are general instructions for the input panel in the classrooms. Your classroom may have specific instructions, so please refer to the list of classrooms on this page.

The local input panel is used to connect a laptop, auxiliary microphone, or other external sources to the projection system. Since this is not a device adjusted specifically for the installed system, please test this device in the classroom prior to the event. If you would like assistance, please contact the Classroom Technology Group to schedule a testing session.

B. Determine the correct connections needed to attach your device to the input panel and provide the necessary cables if needed.


C. For connecting a laptop, please follow the directions on the Laptop Instruction Page.


D. To connect an auxiliary video or device, use the composite RCA jacks to connect your device’s video to the system. Use the yellow connector for video, and the white and red connectors for left and right audio.


E. Locate the touchpanel on the lectern top.


F. Route the composite video/audio device’s image to the projector by pressing the video source button.


G. For classrooms with two projectors, project the laptop onto the left or right screen by pressing the appropriate display button in the lower portion of the touch panel.
