                   Starting Out
If you are the first person to use the screen, it may be
in sleep mode (it never fully turns off). Simply tap the
screen firmly to wake it up.

                                 The tap should be done
                                 quickly with some force,
                                 using the pad of the
                                 finger - not the nail.

                                 Quick but light taps will
                                 not register.

                                 Neither will slow forceful
                  Starting Out
The picture below shows the 1st screen you will see
when the system “wakes up”

                                  To begin using the
                                  system, follow the
                                  written advice, and
                                  “Touch Here to

       Screen #1
    Controls for the left projector
    (from student’s perspective)

Source Selection

Send Source to Projector

Controls for that input
       Screen #2
    Controls for the right projector
    (from student’s perspective)

  Exactly the same as for Screen #1

Source Selection

Send Source to Projector

Controls for that input
        Extra Controls
The right panel contains some
additional basic controls such as:
 •Main Volume (audience)
 •Individual projector power on/off
 •Lighting controls
    • (same options as on the wall panel)
 Panel Volume
    •(controls the previewed volume on the lectern
 •Shades Lower/Raise
    •Gives text message on how to get help and
    report problems
 •Turn System OFF
Selecting a Source
  (Works the same on both sides)

To select your first source, press the
“Source Select” button

Once you select your source (we’ll say
you pressed “Lectern Computer”) that
source occupies the upper frame.

 Notice that the computer image is not
 sent up to the projector until you press
 “Send to Screen”

 It will take about 30seconds for the
 projector to warm up if it was not already
 showing an image.
        Controlling a Source
             Same for Screen_1 and Screen_2

Once you have selected a source, the controls
for that source will be displayed below it’s
                               -In this example, the
                               controls for the DVD
                               player are listed below the
                               preview of the video, with
                               “more controls” available
                               if needed.

                               controlled from the touch
Viewing a Source on the Panel

If you would like to see a larger version of a
source, simply tap the image of that source.

                            For example, to have the
                            computer screen enlarge
                            to fill the entire screen, tap
                            the small image of the
                            computer display (upper
 Viewing a Source on the Panel
Once you tap the small view, it will instantly fill
the entire screen.
                             To return to your controls,
                             simply tap the screen

                             A good tip:
                             Whenever you are “stuck” on a
                             screen that isn’t showing what
                             you need, reach out and touch
                             the screen, and it will change to
                             what you were looking for.
                 Projecting Text
Make sure it’s big enough!!!

Any Computer Source:
       Word, Excell, PowerPoint, Web, etc

Any Printed Material:
•Handout that will be projected, textbook copies, charts, graphs,

Absolute smallest font you should use is 16 pt.
 (18pt is preferable).
                 Projecting Text (44pt)
This is text written in 12pt font – fine for reading on paper, absolutely lousy for projecting on screen

This is text written in 16pt font – looks large on paper, barely passable on screen

This is text written in 18pt font – preferable for your smallest bullet points

This is text written in 28pt font
 - a good general-purpose size for projection,
titles should be larger, while bullet points can
be smaller
