This room has a number of capabilities that utilize one projector and two displays (one big screen and TV). All the devices and available services are controlled from the touch panel:

The Touch Panel has four available Modes that you can select from:
- Video Conference
- Audio Conference

Note - You can display your presentation in either the big screen or on just the TV, you can also display presentation on both screens simultaneously. To display presentation on either screen, select the VGA or HDMI port where your computer is connected to and select the “Display Setup” option and select either TV or projector display depending on where you want to view your presentation.
