OVERVIEWThe Audio Visual equipment in each of the rooms is integrated and designed for ease of use. Presentation setup instructions can be found in each room. The Large (BSRB S3.8371) and Small (BSRB S3.8367) classrooms are equipped with AMX touchpanel controls that follow this layout (below.) The podiums in these rooms cannot be moved.
LAPTOPSWhile there is a Windows PC with Powerpoint in every room, you may bring your own laptop and connect it to the projector using the VGA cable found in each room. Mac users will need to bring their video adapters.
TECHNICAL SUPPORTHelp for technical issues and equipment malfunctions is available during regular business hours (none after 5:00pm and weekends) by going to the Front Desk or calling (713) 500-9850. There is no presentation setup service and no support for equipment that you bring in. When classrooms are reserved, arrangements should be made for speakers to learn to use the podium controls before the meeting. Speakers should arrive at least 15 minutes early to set-up.
VIDEO CONFERENCINGThe Large (BSRB S3.8371) and Small (BSRB S3.8367) classrooms are equipped with send and receive Video Conferencing equipment. Connections are made via the h.323 standard and Internet Protocol (IP) through the MD Anderson Telehealth Operations Center. If you choose to Video Conference your event, we will provide setup support but a 30 minute prep time is required. Also, you will be responsible for technical and scheduling arrangements at each participating site. If this will be the first time we will connect to a participating site, we may recommend a test connection that will require you to make an additional room reservation request.
