Welcome to Your Smart Classroom!
The Smart protocol for classroom technology is designed to make using computer, video, CD, and DVD playing as easy as possible. Please, do not hesitate to address questions about the Smart classrooms to Library & Information Services. We can be contacted via E-mail (helpdesk@dickinson.edu), telephone (x1000), or by visiting the Help Desk on the lower level of the Waidner-Spahr Library.

Basic instructions
The MediaLink controller on top of the podium can be used to turn the projector on and off, select input sources, control the DVD/VCR unit, and set volume.  You can also blank the image with the "pic mute" button and the sound with the "audio mute" button.. Please note that in the event buttons are pressed with the projector off or the DVD/VCR mode is changed not using the MediaLink, the controller may "get out of sync" with the actual conditions. In most cases it is only necessary to press the appropriate button again on the MediaLink (even if it is already illuminated) to restore function.
Please be sure to press the "off" button on the mediaLink when done to conserve energy and lamp life. Do not leave it in picture mute when leaving.

To turn the projector On or OFF
Use the projector ON and OFF buttons on the MediaLink. The projector takes 30 seconds to warm up (The button will flash while the projector is warming up or cooling down. Please do not press other buttons during this time).

To view the built-in Laptop
With the projector on, press the "Table Laptop" button on the MediaLink. Note that the volume is controlled both by the PC volume setting and the volume on the MediaLink.
Note: If you do not have the same image on the laptop screen and projector, you may need to set the display to "duplicate", press the windows key (next to "control" key) and the "p" key on the keyboard at the same time and select "duplicate".

To view a guest laptop
If your computer has a HDMI port: plug in the HDMI cable on top of the podium and press the "HDMI" button on the media controller. In most cases it should not be necessary to connect the "mini" sound cable, the sound should work via the HDMI connection.
Otherwise: connect the VGA cable located on top of the podium to the laptop VGA jack. If using sound, connect the "mini" sound plug provided to the laptop headphone jack. With the projector ON, press the LAPTOP button on the MediaLink.You may need to press a function key on your laptop to enable the external monitor function (may be marked "LCD/CRT" or with a monitor icon).

To Play & View a DVD, Videotape, or CD:

With the projector on, press the DVD or VCR button on the Media Link. Insert your CD, DVD, or video tape into the appropriate drawer or slot. Use the controls on the right side of the MediaLink (or the JVC remote) to control playback functions. If a cable TV channel is showing, press the TV/VCR button on the MediaLink to eliminate it. You must use the MediaLink to change between DVD and VCR functions, the buttons on the remote will not work as expected. The other functions on the remote work as described in the DVD/VCR manual..

To View Campus Cable TV: With the projector on, press the VCR button on the MediaLink. Then press the either the TV/VCR button on the MediaLink or the AUX button on the JVC remote. You can change channels by using the channel ("CH") up and down buttons or by using the keypad on the JVC remote to enter the channel number.

Wireless Projection:
This room has the capability to project wirelessly with the installation of software on your device. Laptops can fully mirror the screen while Android and IOS devices can send images but do not do not mirror the device screen. Please contact the helpdesk to get set up to use this feature.
