Welcome to Your Smart Classroom!devcheck
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 on top of the podium 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 and the sound with the "audio 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 built-in PC
With the projector on, press either the "PC Left mon." or "PC Right mon." button on the MediaLink to select which of the two monitors you wish to display. Note that the volume is controlled both by the PC volume setting and the volume on the MediaLink.

To view a laptop
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 MediaLink. 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 Sharp remote) to control playback functions. If a cable TV channel is showing, press the TV/VCR button on the MediaLink to eliminate it.
[NOTE: This unit will play NTSC (US format), PAL, and SECAM media. However, French SECAM video tapes will only play in black-and-white.]

To View the Document Camera (Visual Presenter):
With the projector on, press the "Doc Cam" button on the MediaLink

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 Sharp Remote to enter the channel number.

To control sound volume
Use the Volume control on the MediaLink. (The volume control on the projector remote has no effect).

Thank you,
