Equipment in Arts and Drama Classrooms
Several classrooms in the Lindenbaum Arts building, and in the Dance Studio and Film Studies classroom in Mow Hall, have a consumer-level LCD monitor, an Apple TV and a USB-C cable for a physical connection. In most cases, using the Apple TV to push video/audio content to the monitor will suffice.
Turning on the Equipment
Begin by turning on TV using the Samsung remote control. You can control the audio volume to the Kramer speaker systems using the volume buttons on the remote.
**Please ensure you turn OFF the television at the end of the class. We want to ensure we conserve energy, but most importantly that we conserve the life of our televisions as well.**
Connecting to the Television:
Using Apple TV:
- Most televisions will automatically be connected to the Apple TV. If not, please click Source and select “Apple TV” or HDMI 2
Please see this HowDoI page on how to use AirPlay to connect to the Apple TV.
Using the USB-C Cable:
This is the recommended setting when streaming videos from the internet. Streaming video to the AppleTV is not recommended as it can result in video and audio drops and glitches.
- Connect your MacBook to the USB-C adapter connected to the TV
- Click the Source Button on the remote control
- Using the arrows at the bottom of the control, select “Laptop” or HDMI 1
