AV Touch Panel Quick Guide


Use the audiovisual features in a classroom to provide a multimedia experience.

  1. Touch the screen on the AV touch panel to start the system. Depending upon the room, the AV touch panel may be on the instructor lectern or a wall adjacent to the location of the lectern.
  2. Select a source to display on the AV touch panel. Source options include: Room PC, VGA Device, HDMI Device, Blu-ray, DVD/VCR, and Doc Camera. The available sources will vary in each building and room (e.g., in TERP classroom there is also a Share Video source and newer AV systems include a Solstice screen share and Extended Desktop option for use with PowerPoint presenter mode).
    1. HDMI cables are identified with a blue tag.
    2. VGA cables are identified with a yellow tag.
  3. Press the projector button on the AV touch panel to power on a projector. The number of projectors will vary in each building and room. Rooms will include either one, two, three, or four projectors. You may need to select a specific projector (e.g., Projector 1).
