Connecting to Projector 2116 Vilas

2116 Vilas has a projector and an available VGA connection for other devices to connect to the room projector.

The instructor iMac is connected to the room projector via HDMI. To use the projector simply power on the projector using the remote in the room. The projector will seek out the active display connection.

When connecting a device to the VGA connection, connect your device to the available VGA cable and connected audio cable, and power on the projector. The projector should find your device’s connection.

Volume is controlled using the projector remote.
