iSchool Rooms: How to use the Control Panel (Multi-Purpose Room)
The control panel to the left of the cabinet on the north wall controls most features of this room. This panel is a touch screen. Touch the screen to wake it up.
Note: Please press buttons slowly. Allow the last command you gave the screen to be enabled before selecting another.
It is helpful to see how the rooms are laid out in order to understand some of the labeling in the room. Please reference the map below.
The main screen that displays when the control panel wakes up is the video options screen. This screen powers up individual televisions and the projector. Occasionally, these buttons are not active. Clicking Room On turns on all of the televisions and the projector at once. You can select individual televisions/projector to turn off from there. By default these will display the built-in computer. The televisions are labeled in the map of this room and in the room itself.
The video matrix screen controls which source (built-in computer, laptop/tablet/phone via wireless connection, or laptop via HDMI connection) is displayed on which television/projector. You can mix and match with each television and the projector displaying different sources.
The audio matrix enables you to choose which source audio comes in from and where it plays to.
|Room A||N/A||Plays audio from Solstice/Airplay in Room A||Plays audio from a device plugged into HDMI A in Room A||Plays audio from the built-in computer in Room A||Plays audio from Solstice/Airplay||N/A|
|Room B||N/A||Plays audio from Solstice/Airplay in Room B||Plays audio from a device plugged into HDMI A in Room B||Plays audio from the built-in computer in Room A||Plays audio from Solstice/Airplay||N/A|
|Room C||A - Copies settings from Room A to Room C||B - Copies settings from Room B to Room C|
Room volume controls how loudly the inputs listed in the audio matrix play.
There are microphones, both handheld and lapel mics in the cabinet below the television on the north wall. This controls the volume of this microphones. These will connect to the room speakers, but not to Zoom. Zoom audio is picked up by the ClearOne microphones mounted to the ceiling.
