Trying to project from the cabinet in the Campus Center can be intimidating at first, but once you know what you're looking at you can get up and running very quickly.

Almost everything you need to do with the AV system is controlled from this panel:

If the screen is off, gently pressing it will wake it up. If you're projecting on the big screen, roll it down using the switch on the side of the box, then choose "Present East". If you'd like the sound to project from near the board room instead, choose "Present South". 

Press "Sources" on the right side of the panel, and then "Rack HDMI" from the center options to finish setting up the appropriate input.

Then, plug in the HDMI cable directly to your computer if you have a port for it. If you're using a Mac, you're likely going to need to use the attached adapter to connect it to your laptop instead. You should now see your screen being projected! If you don't see your picture, the projector might still be warming up. If after a minute or two the projector still isn't on, aim at it with the remote below and press the orange button to power it on.

If you'd like to use a mic, just grab one, hold the power button on it until the light turns green (this should only take a second), and you're all set. If it's not turning on, you may need to change out the batteries. There should be a box of batteries in the same drawer where you got the mic, and if there aren't, we have plenty in the tech office to spare.

Best of luck with your presentation!

Once you're done projecting, don't forget to press the Shut Down button on the panel, unplug your machine, and roll the screen back up.
