Data projectors are installed on the ceiling in all DSI Tech-supported rooms. The data projector is controlled from the installed instructor computer.
Each classroom is equipped with a small 2-in-1 multipurpose camera with a built-in microphone that can function as a document camera or webcam for software such as Zoom, Teams, Canvas Studio, etc.
NOTE: If your room is equipped with a wireless microphone, please select that input (shown below) for better audio quality.
Using the connector panel on the room equipment rack, a separate computer or video source can be connected to the data projector.
Most cables for this task are available at no charge from DSI Tech. We can provide a VGA and HDMI cables as well as various adapters that may be needed to adapt your device's connection.
Some classrooms may have an HDMI cable routed through the instructor podium.
Wireless microphone systems are installed in the larger DSI Tech-supported rooms. In the past, instructors were required to check out a transmitter, but now each room will be equipped with a transmitter bodypack unit that is already synced to the same frequency as the receiver. Rooms equipped with a wireless microphone have a charging cradle containing the transmitter and microphone, as well as a spare rechargable battery. If a room is missing a transmitter, please contact us to get it replaced.
NOTE: Rooms equipped with ceiling microphones mix both ceiling and wirelss mics together, please see "Ceiling Microphones" below for the correct audio source.
Most general-purpose rooms are equipped with a pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) instructor camera. These cameras allow the front of the room to be captured on video and used in conferencing software such as Zoom, Teams, etc. or used to record a lecture in Canvas Studio or similar software.
NOTE: In some rooms, the device name you need to select is "AVerMedia ExtremeCap SDI UVC".
Full-coverage ceiling microphones are available in a select number of rooms, which allow the entire class to be heard or recorded.
NOTE: Rooms equipped with ceiling microphones will sound best on a call or video conference when paired with the wireless instructor microphone.
Below are some technical specifications of the classroom machines that are available
in every classroom.
