HEC Classroom D - A/V Training

Touch Panel

To use the AV in the room, you will need to turn on the AV system via the touch panel installed into the lectern tabletop. Tap on the screen to awaken the touch panel and the WesternU logo will appear with the location name, HEC Classroom D, shown. Tap on the screen once again to bring up the Passcode prompt window. Input the passcode/access code of ‘309’ and then tap ‘Enter’ to proceed. The WesternU logo screen will now display Touch To Start, so go ahead and tap the screen to begin. The system will begin powering on and the two projections screens in front of the classroom will drop down and the two confidence monitors in the back wall will power on with all four displays displaying the Main PC as the source.

The touch panel screen will now give you access to controlling the sources and display destinations. The controls are divided to two separate features: System and Presentation.

  2. Confidence Source: For the user to control what sources to display on which confidence monitor

  5. Camera: For the user to configure and adjust the 4 cameras in the room

To use the HoverCam document camera, open the drawer to the right of the lectern. Extend the arm out to point the camera down towards the green mat. Power on the device and the light will turn on and video display will turn, too. Select the Document Camera source under the Presentation section to display it on the projection screens and the confidence monitors will also display the Doc-Cam source by default. On the Doc-Cam, there are several features, but we will not be going in depth for this right now. To power down the Doc-Cam, press and hold the power button until it shuts off.

To use the AirMedia feature, select AirMedia source under the Presentation section and follow the directions in the AirMedia 2 portion below.

Projector Control

Users have the following abilities under this feature:

  2. Image mute on/off the images on the projectors
    1. This will put up a black screen in order for the user to prepare their presentation on the PC or laptop
    2. Unmuting will return the display back to the original source selected
  3. Raise/lower each projection screen
  4. Projector lamp hours are tabulated and displayed for monitoring lamp life for each projector

Video Conferencing

Zoom

Log into Zoom sessions as normal and prepare any files that need to be shared. Then select Zoom Mode on the touch panel controls on the Present Source screen. Zoom Video Conference control panel will come up with Zoom Conference Camera controls and Zoom Conference Presets.

You will set the camera you would like to set for your video source under the Zoom Conference Camera controls and then select one of the following Zoom Conference Presets:

  1. Content/Video
  2. Content/Content
  3. Video/Video

Simply explained, the Presets are configured according to what is displayed on the Main PC and the PC Secondary. Content is content shown on PC Main display, and Video is content shown on PC Secondary. It makes no difference what content is shown on the screen. So if you select the preset Content/Content, the Projectors and the Confidence monitors will display both displays as PC Main. If you select Content/Video, then the stage right projector will display PC Main, and the stage left projector will display PC Secondary.

Haivision

Haivision is not available in HEC Classroom D

AirMedia 2

Selecting AirMedia option, the Crestron splash screen with the IP address and the Code will appear. If you do not have the Crestron AirMedia 2 app installed on your mobile device, you will need to input the IP address listed for that specific room and then it will forward you to the Crestron website to download and install the required software. The website will determine which OS you are using and will provide you with the correct software to download and install. Before you can connect successfully with AirMedia 2, your mobile device (i.e. Laptop, Cellphone, Tablet, etc.) MUST be logged into the WesternU Wi-Fi network and it must meet the minimum requirements in order for the AirMedia 2 connection to work properly.

Once the AirMedia 2 app is running, enter the same IP address displayed into the URL field at the top of the app and then click on the button, ‘Present with AirMedia’, to start the connection. A prompt with the IP address you entered will pop up and ask you for the AirMedia code, please enter the Code displayed to authenticate the connection. MAC users will need to ensure AirPlay is activated and then activate the Screen Mirror feature. Once connected, the signal from your mobile device should appear on the display. To disconnect, click on the button, ‘Disconnect from AirMedia’.
