Boebel 104 Classroom Technology Guide

An overview of the classroom presentation system in Boebel 104.

Getting Started

Select your desired presentation mode from the touch panel:

  • AV Presentation - Local Recording: Use this mode when presenting with visual aids (PC, laptop, mobile device, etc) to a local audience. This mode also allows users to record to a USB flash drive using the room’s built-in USB recorder.
  • Audio Only – No Recording: This mode only turns on the audio equipment in the room. Used when presenting without visual aids, but sound reinforcement (such as a wireless microphone) is needed.
  • Web Conferencing – Cloud Recording: Use this mode when remote audiences need to view the presentation.

Presenting Information in AV Presentation Mode or Web Conferencing Mode

  1. Unmute the projector and flat-panel monitors by pressing the red “Projector Mute” and “Monitors Mute” buttons on the touch panel.
  2. Select your desired sources from the list of available options on the touch panel (PC, Document Camera, Device Share, HDMI, or VGA).
  3. Different sources can be displayed on the projector (the center screen) and the flat-panel monitors (the outside screens) by selecting different options from the “Projector Source” or “Monitors Source” banks.

Controlling the Room Camera in Web Conferencing Mode
