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 (, telephone (x1000), or by visiting the Help Desk on the lower level of the Waidner-Spahr Library..

Basic instructions
The MediaLink controller mount in the rack above the VCR/DVD should be used to turn the projector on and off, select input sources, and set volume. Please DO NOT use the projector remote control for these functions. You can also blank the image with the "pic mute" button. If the image from the computer is cut off on the screen, press the "auto image" button and the projector should adjust it. 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. The exception is the selection of DVD or VCR mode on the Player. The indicator lights on the front of the DVD/VCR unit should agree with the DVD or VCR indicator on the MediaLink. In case it does not, you must change the mode on the player (either by using the VCR or DVD button on the player itself or the DVD/VCR select button near the top of the Sharp remote) to agree with the MediaLink.

To turn the projector On or OFF
Use the Display 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 Mac laptop
With the projector on, press the "PC 1" button on the MediaLink. Note that the volume is controlled both by the Mac volume setting and the volume on the MediaLink. For optimum widescreen image on the ceiling projector, the resolution of the MacBook VGA output should be set to 1280x768 60 Hz using the display icon in the top toolbar.

To view a laptop
Connect the VGA cable located on the bottom shelf of the cart 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 "PC 2" 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 control sound volume
Use the Volume control on the MediaLink.

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

If the DVD/VCR is not already ON, first turn it on with its power button. 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 LiteOn 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 may 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. You can change channels by using the channel ("CH") up and down buttons or by using the keypad on the LiteOn remote to enter the channel number.


Please, turn off all of the equipment before you leave the room.

Thank you,
