Connecting a Laptop

Each lectern has a VGA + 3.5mm Audio combination cable, connect this cable to your laptop to have display of your laptop projected onto the projection screen.  Please note: you will need to be logged into the podium computer and use the on-screen remote to control the projector.  Once the laptop is plugged in, the projector display will show the laptop.  To show the display from the podium computer, simply unplug the VGA cable from the laptop and the projector will automatically switch.

If you are using an Apple MacBook computer, you will require a Mini Display Port to VGA adaptor to connect to the projector. This adaptor is not supplied by the Tyndale I.T. Department. Note: Some older Macintosh computers come equipped with a different port other than the Mini Display Port. Be sure to check which port exsts on your model of Macintosh before buying an adaptor.
