How to use the rolling monitor as a monitor for presentation

(Remember: it works just like any TV)

Turn on the monitor on the bottom front or the right side
Plug HDMI in laptop
Not displaying? Change the source using the source button if possible
No audio? Check the volume buttons on the bottom front or the right side
Please turn it off when done

How to use the rolling monitor with the computer as a stand-alone device (if so equipped)

If there are buttons on the side, you can use the internal computer in it
It should automatically display the screen that you are used to seeing
Log in as usual
No video? Make sure that the correct source is selected using the source button
Please turn off when done
 

How to use the Projector on Wheels

Plug in the cart and turn on the projector using the power button
Open the laptop, it should wake up from sleep
Log in
Please turn off the projector and close the laptop when done
 
  

AMX Panels

  • Touch AMX panel to reveal controls
  • The projector should power on and the projector screen should come down and automatically display the podium computer screen. If you are using your own personal computer, you must select Laptop to display your personal device.
  • Once you are finished using the technology, select PWR OFF to power off all devices.
  

Troubleshooting

Wall screen doesn’t come down via panel

There is a manual screen control either on the podium or on the wall. Select Down in order to bring the screen down. Please raise screen back up once done with the room.
 

The touch panel has a weird screen displayed?


Select “Cancel” or “Trust for session” until information clears.
 

The computer display screen on the podium stopped working. 

  • If you’ve just adjusted the display screen, you may have accidentally tapped the power on the screen. In the bottom right-hand side, if you don’t see a blue indicator light, then the screen is more than likely off. Tap that side and an indicator light will display blue.
  • If the display seems to be on, yet nothing is populating on the screen, open the rack and make sure the computer PC is actually on.
  • Check the outlet. 

Everything seems to be functioning as expected, yet nothing is displaying on screen 

Open the rack and select either the VGA or HDMI input on the Crestron Panel. Some panels may display an orange light indicating that that source is ”sleep.” You can select that input and when it turns green, that will display on the display screen.
