- Above is the Welcome screen on the Crestron touch panel.
- Press anywhere on the screen to bring up the home screen
This is the Home screen.
- Press any of the first four buttons to power on the projector, drop down the projector screen, and switch to your desired device.
- A warm up message will show in the upper portion of the touch screen letting you know how much longer until the projector is fully functional.
- Touch the “Blu-ray” button to switch to the Blu-Ray player and bring up its menu.
This is the Blu-ray menu.
- You can control the playback of the Blu-ray player located in the AV cabinet from this menu.
- Press the “Return to Main” button to get back to the Home screen.
- If there is a need to perform a presentation from a laptop, touch the “Guest VGA” or “HDMI” buttons.
- In order for this to function, either the guest VGA+Audio combination cable or the guest HDMI cable (located in the podium) will need to be connected to a computer. The presenter will also need to verify that his or her computer is outputting its display to the projector. On a Windows 7 device, this can be accomplished by pressing the keyboard combination of the Windows key (ÿ) and the letter “P.” A menu will then appear and you can choose “Duplicate” or “Extend” to display content on the projector.
