Conduct an Audio Check
To finish preparing to use the podium, complete a three step audio check.
- Check the AV Mute button on the toggle controls. This should not be flashing.
- Set the Volume Control to an appropriate level (2 or 3 lights).
- Check the Amplifier, if available. It is located to the side of the podium, and has several volume knobs. Make sure it is ON, and that the AUX is set to 10.
If you continue to have audio issues, use the room's phone to contact the IT Service Desk.

Unique Podium Controls
The touch screen controls in 1D01, 2D01, 1D02 and 2D02 have a similar functionality, but different operation than Standard Rooms.
A. Display On/Off – Touch to turn Projector on or off.
B. Video Source Options - in order, from left to right.
- Wi-Fi Presents– Wireless Display (no software required).
- Laptop - HDMI only (you may require an adapter for your laptop).
- DVD/VCR - if available.
- AV Mute – if lit, your display and audio are not displayed, but still running.
C. Volume Control – Volume indicator will pop up, displaying volume level. Adjust to suit.
Video and audio work best from a wired connection. Use your laptop or the PC, rather than the Wi-Fi Presents display option.
