Touch Panels

All multimedia equipment in UI technology classrooms is controlled via touch panel. Access to the touch panels is keyed on your Vandal Number. If you are a new user, i.e., you have not used the systems before, please contact us so that we can enter your V-number into the database. We can also offer a short orientation to the system so that you are familiar with it when you get in front of your class. These panels are capacitive, which means they require far less pressure to operate but do not function while wearing gloves.

AMX MXT-700 touch panel used in the classrooms
The AMX 7 inch touch panels are the standard control interface for the classroom equipment.

Every instructor is required to enter their own Vandal ID number to use the classroom systems. At the end of their session, they are required to log out of the system. Contact us for training and to have your Vandal ID number entered into the classroom access database. The white text area will display a dot for each digit. If you press the white text area, your vandal ID will be shown instead.

Menu login page
The login touch panel screen. Your Vandal number will not work until you contact CTS.

You will be brought to the Main page when you log in. The top row of buttons are controls. The bottom row selects which source should be sent to the projection system. The projector controls will automatically be displayed in the center of the screen. The example to the left indicates the projector is waiting to be turned on.

Menu main page
This is the main page for the touch panel. It allows access to all the controls for the system.

Main page controls

If the projector is already on then the On button will be grayed out and the options to either turn the projector off or mute the video is enabled.

Menu projector on
The projector controls change,based on whether the projector is powered on or off.

When the video is muted the projector will project a black image. The Video mute button’s background will flash orange as a reminder the video is muted. Another press of the button will restore the video of the currently selected source.

Menu video mute
The orange background of the Video Mute button means that it is enabled and the projector is displaying a black image.

Classrooms with wireless microphones have dual volume controls, otherwise a single volume control will be displayed. The program and microphone volume controls are Mute, - and +. The mute button backgrounds will flash orange when active. Pushing the mute button again will un-mute the program audio or microphone. Increasing or decreasing the volume will also un-mute the audio.

Menu volume
The volume controls on the Main Page of the touch panel. Not all classrooms will have the microphone volume controls.

The Screen button is present in classrooms that allow control of the projection screen from the touch panel. The Up, Down, and Stop buttons mirror the controls on the wall switch located in every classroom.

Menu screen
Some classrooms allow the raising or lowering of the projection screen from the touch panel.

Some classrooms have the ability to control the room lighting via the touch panel. These buttons mirror the wall switch controls in the room.

Menu lighting
Some classrooms allow the control of the room lights from the touch panel.

After selecting eHelp, a pre-configured message will be displayed in the message window along with the current room number. Type in a short message or leave the message as is and then push Send. An email message will be sent to Classroom Support and an instant text message will be sent to their cell phones.

Menu  ehelp
You can send a message straight to CTS to ask for assistance or report a problem.

Every instructor is required to log out of the touch panel after their class period has ended. The control system will automatically log the computer off 15 seconds after the touch panel has logged out. The projector video will be muted. If another instructor does not log in within 15 minutes, all classroom equipment will be turned off, including the projector. Please leave the projector on for the next instructor.

Menu logout
The system will ask if you do want to log out. Please save any changes made and remove all media before accepting.

Source selection

Classroom sources are located on the bottom of the main page. The page to the left indicates that the PC is the current source displayed on the projector. When a source is selected on the touch panel, a subpage is displayed with additional controls.

Menu source select
The green button background on the bottom row will indicate what the projector is displaying.

Subpage controls

If desired, the audio being played can be from a different source than the video being displayed on the projector. This can be accomplished by pressing the Audio select button. This will then display a window that will indicate the current audio source in green and allow a new source to be chosen. If a new source is selected to be displayed on the projector the audio will automatically be set to that source.

Menu audio select
You can change the audio played through the classroom speakers. It will default to the same device that is displaying video.

On all sources except the PC, the video on the monitor can be changed from the current source to the PC and back again. To accomplish this press the Monitor select button and it will bring up the two options in a window.

Menu monitor select
At any time, you can bring up the PC on the lectern monitor only while showing the selected source to the class.

The Monitor select is replaced on the PC subpage by the Display mode button. This will allow you to use the Presenter View in PowerPoint to view the notes for the presentation while displaying the presentation to the class. You must be logged on to the computer to use this option.

Menu presenter view
PowerPoint's presenter view can be used on the classroom systems, but the control is through the touch panel.

Many of the blu-ray controls will be unavailable and thus grayed out until a disc is read by the player.

Menu blu-ray

Once a disc has been read, then full functionality of the player is available. Basic controls are aligned along the bottom of the panel. Please remember to remove your disc before you log off the touch panel as the player will be turned off at that time.

Menu blu-ray controls
All controls will be available when the player has a disc.
