Every piece of equipment that you'll use in Nicarry 131 can be controlled by the touch screen found on the Crestron podium.


This podium uses two different projectors. The projector on the right side is labeled Interactive Projector. The whiteboard under this projector acts as a touch screen. The projector on the left side is Projector 2. The whiteboard underneath this projector is not a touch screen.


Notice: Please avoid writing on the interactive white board.

Turn on the system with the indicated Power button.


On the left-hand side of the screen you'll find the Main Controls.


Here, you can toggle between the sources screen, lighting controls, display settings, as well as administrative setup.

Click Interact. Proj. Blank and/or Proj. 2 Blank to turn either of the screens on or off. Blue indicates screens turned off, black indicates screens turned on.


Next, you'll find the Media Sources.


This is where you control which input you are using. You can use the podium computer (screens labeled "PC [Left Mon.]" and "PC [Right Mon.]"), a laptop, a document camera, and even a cable tuner. Any of these inputs can be projected onto either of the projector screens.

Next to Media Sources you'll find Media Destinations.


This is where you can choose how your selected input is displayed.

And finally, all the way on the right side of your screen you'll find the System Volume control.


Move the dial up to turn up the volume, move the dial down to turn down the volume, and press the Mute button to mute the system's volume.
