Connecting to Plasma Screen in 2111 Vilas

2111 Vilas has a large screen plasma television. This display is connected to the instructor iMac at the front of the room but there is also an available VGA connector to connect laptops or other devices.

To use the plasma display power it on using the button on the television or the red power button on the upper left of the remote. When using the instructor iMac ensure the HDMI 1 source is selected. To do this press the TV VIDEO button on the remote until that source is highlighted. If using the VGA connection ensure the PC source is selected and your computer is connected to the VGA cable on the instructor desk. Audio can be routed to the television by plugging the 3.5mm audio cable in to your device’s headphone or audio out port.
