The Projector controls are on the bottom of the Crestron touch panel.
Classroom lighting is controlled by either the Crestron touch panel or a wall switch located near the Teaching Station or door.
1. Dim lights using the Crestron touch panel or wall switch
2. Turn all lighting on when finished
Larger classrooms have controls on the right-hand side of the Crestron touch panel and may work automatically with the projector settings.
1. Press Projection High or Projection Low for lighting when using the projector.
2. Press All On or All Off to control the classroom lights.
In rooms with a Work Light button, the button controls the document camera light.
It can be used to illuminate the teaching station desktop.
Save Your Ears: Devices may also have their own volume control. Turn volume all the way down and bring it up gradually to the desired level. Some players, YouTube for instance, may also have their own volume control.
The Program Audio controls raise and lower the volume of computers and other devices connected to the display.
1. Press Up Arrow or Down Arrow to raise or lower the volume.
2. Press Mute to silence the sound.
If a room has wireless microphones look for the Microphone Control button to adjust the level of individual microphones.
Check your classroom for available microphones. Most smaller classrooms have a microphone in the ceiling tiles or a button microphone on the teaching station. In some classrooms, wireless microphones may be stored in a drawer. Use the Microphone button on the touch panel to turn the mic on or off.
If a classroom has wireless lapel and handheld microphone they will be stored in a locked drawer in the teaching station.
The majority of centrally classrooms have been outfitted with a camera to use for video conferencing or recording, and more will be added in the future.
You can choose a preset camera shot or adjust the camera shot from the Crestron touch panel.
Note: The camera is slow to respond to the button presses on the panel. After making a single short press on a button, wait for the camera to respond before pressing the same button or another. Pressing too often or holding the button may cause the camera to swing/zoom too far.
If a classroom has more than one camera, the camera highlighted in green is the active camera. This camera will be recorded or used in a video conference.
Make sure the device you are using, such as the Internal PC, is powered on.
Make sure the projector is turned on with light coming out of it. Press the Projector On button if it is off. If the projector is on, press a different input, wait a few seconds and press the desired input.
Check to see if Video Mute button is pressed or flashing. This setting will prevent the image on your device from being displayed on the large classroom screen.
Make sure the microphone is powered on. If necessary, locate spare batteries in the teaching station.
Make sure the monitor is turned on. Look for the power button on the lower right-hand corner of the monitor.
