Laptop Cable Connection, Multimedia Lectern Adjustment

LAPTOP CABLE CONNECTION

  • The multimedia lectern has a built-in power outlet (at its base) and PC audio and VGA video cables (see upper image on the right) for connecting your laptop to the LCD video projector. The lectern also has an Ethernet cable for laptops without wireless capabilities. NOTE: Before using any application that accesses the University network through either a public Ethernet or wireless port, you must first open an internet browser application and login to the page that you are automatically directed to with your UTEID. If you have forgotten your UTEID, please visit the UT EID Self-Service Tools page for assistance.
  • To connect your laptop computer for video projection, simple plug in the lectern's VGA cable to the VGA port of your laptop computer. There is another VGA connection available under the main floor port (see the second photo on the right) as an alternate in case there is a problem with the wireless video signal. If there is audio in your presentation you will also need to connect the available PC audio cable. Turn on your computer, press the Projection ON and Computer Source buttons for the screens that you wish to use on the Crestron remote control. If your laptop's screen appears on the room's screen you are ready to go, if not, you may need to mirror your laptop's screen onto the projector. To do this on a Dell computer, hit the FN and F8 keys at the same time until you see your laptop content on the screen. Hitting FN-F8 successively will scroll through the available viewing choices. The command to mirror your laptop's screen may be different on other manufacturer's computers, if you have any questions please consult this PDF chart.

MULTIMEDIA LECTERN HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT

The Multimedia and Document Camera lecterns are height-adjustable. Under the right-rear of the lectern (see lower image on the right) there is a lever that will allow you to raise or lower the lecterns.
