Classroom - AC N223 Technology Operation and troubleshooting guide

AC N223 Technology Operation and troubleshooting guide

The technology equipment in AC N223 has been temporarily assigned to this Music Department classroom from the Halsey Technology Center, Halsey 259, 424-4979.

One video projector is capable of projecting both the document camera image and the computer image by switching between the computer and the document camera using the document camera controls. The document camera MUST be turned on for the signals to be sent properly.

Cables should be attached as follows:

Doc camera RGB Out RBG1 cable

The other end of the cable from the RGB out from the document camera should be connected to the video projector RGB2 IN.  This is sending any image from the document camera to the video projector.

Panasonic RBG2 IN

The other end of the RGB1 cable from the video projector should be connected to the VGA adapter on the back of the computer.  This is sending the image from the computer into the document camera so it will go out to the video projector.
