Using Classroom Projection Control Systems
Posted by Charles Oliff on 10 September 2014 04:42 PM

The IT Center has installed a projector, video player, PC, and external inputs in most of our classrooms with a variety of control interfaces.  We have a few types of control interface types with a few flavors of one of the interface types.  Below is a table listing each instructional space that contains a projection system.  Where it lists the interface type, there is a link to a PDF of instructions for that type of control.  Below the chart, there is a brief overview of each type and a link to a PDF of instructions on how to identify and use them.

  • AMX Keypads

    • We have 2 flavors of the AMX Keypads that we refer to as Upgraded and New.

    • Upgraded AMX Keypads:

    • These are either silver or black and have DVD and VCR buttons.

  • AMX Touch Panels

  • Touch panels are in three rooms - McKinney 126, Bowman 24, and Flory 313.

  • Using the Touch Panel Controls (pdf)  

  • SmartBoards

    • SmartBoard setups are slightly different for each room.  

      • Note: all of the below functions can also be controlled via the SmartBoard Remote but not all locations have a remote.

      • They can be powered on via the power button on the control pad located usually on the bottom left of the SmartBoard or with the provided remote.  

      • The input can be selected, depending on the SmartBoard model, either by pressing the button labeled with the desired input or by pressing the input cycle button to cycle between inputs.  

      • To power them off, simply press the power button once to get the confirmation message and again to confirm you wish to power off.

    • Using SmartBoards.

    • SmartBoard floating tools quick reference guide.

  • Remotes

    • Systems controlled by remotes are fairly straightforward.  

      • Each remote operates a different component of the system and each component needs to be individually powered on and off.

      • The sound usually runs through a large sound mixer that should have labels to indicate which input button runs PC, VCR, or other component.

      • The projectors are powered on and off by remote.  Note that when you first press to button to power off the projector, it will generally prompt you to press it again to confirm powering off.
