Using the large screen in the ballroom with a computer

These are instructions for using the large projector screen in the Oak Point Ballroom with a computer.

You need a VGA output on your computer. If you don't have that, you can buy an adaptor that will convert HDMI or DVI to VGA. You need a VGA cable, male connector at both ends. We used to have a 20 footer here but somebody stole that.. I suggest bringing your own.

The screen

If you are standing on the stage looking toward the audience, the audio/visual control room is to your right. On the left-hand wall of that room is a large rocker switch that will lower and raise the projection screen.

The projector

Find the projector control (probably in the drawer in the A/V equipment box). Stand middle stage, look UP about 15 feet out. Press the blue button and look for the projector "on" light to turn on.

The other buttons are "Computer 1" and "Computer 2". I THINK "Computer 1" is what you want.

Room Lights

This is on the right hand side of the little room. I found "Preset 7" worked well for me.

VGA Cable

Connects to wall outside of A/V room. Use lower connection marked INPUT.

Your computer should now be able to use the projector.

Many of the products and books I review are things I purchased for my own use. Some were given to me specifically for the purpose of reviewing them. I resell or can earn commissions from the sale of some of these items. Links within these pages may be affiliate links that pay me for referring you to them. That's mostly insignificant amounts of money; whenever it is not I have made my relationship plain. I also may own stock in companies mentioned here. If you have any question, please do feel free to contact me.

I am a Kerio reseller. Articles here related to Kerio products reflect my honest opinion, but I do have an obvious interest in selling those products also.

Specific links that take you to pages that allow you to purchase the item I reviewed are very likely to pay me a commission. Many of the books I review were given to me by the publishers specifically for the purpose of writing a review. These gifts and referral fees do not affect my opinions; I often give bad reviews anyway.
