Multimedia Equipment

The multimedia installation in rooms R 101, R 119 und R 119 A comprises:

  • - a height-adjustable desk
  • - a presenter with small control monitor
  • - switchboard with HDMI, VGA and mini-jack cables
  • - two loudspeakers firmly mounted on the wall
  • - beamer at the ceiling

The equipment is nearly identical in all three rooms and can be used intuitively. See also the illustrated operating manual ( in German). The illustrations show the presenter in R 119, the one in R 101 looks slighty different, but is even easier to use.

Please note:

  • The height is adjusted by two push buttons at the front edge of the table.
  • The control monitor shows what is being projected onto the screen behind. The monitor is firmly connected to the presenter and you need not separately switch it on and off.
  • The mini jack cable is only needed in conjunction with the VGA cable to transmit the sound. The HDMI cable transmits picture and sound at the same time.
