To use this
Constant Hall systems are configured to allow the use of a personal laptop or a portable document camera (doc cam). The laptop connection cable should be near the VCR in the Media side of the desk. The cable connects to the monitor output of a PC type laptop. Those using a Macintosh laptop will need to provide their own cable/converters. The other end of the cable should be connected to the computer input jack as pictured above. You may need to activate the laptop’s external port, usually by holding the FUNCTION key and pressing F3 or F7. (Consult your laptop’s users’ manual for specific instructions.) The data projector will support up to 1024x768 resolution.
Important Note: You cannot access the Internet through your laptop. You must use the classroom PC for internet or network access.
