Connecting the Laptop
1 - Plug the video cable and sound cable from the podium into the appropriate slots on your laptop. In this room, the cable should plug into the podium under the words "Computer A." (Important: If you are using a Mac, you may need an adaptor to plug into this cable. Contact Classroom Support if you have questions about this.)
2 - Tap the Source button on the left side of the screen.
3 - Tap the AUX button to choose the laptop as the audio/video source. The system will display what is on your laptop through the projector and will play sounds from your laptop through the room speakers.

If nothing shows up on screen after choosing the source then you need to be sure that your laptop is set to use a second monitor. This is normally done on a pc by pressing the function key and the F4 key at the same time. Contact classroom support if you need further help with this.
