How to use the new meeting room computer


All meeting rooms are now equipped with a standard computer to do presentations or video calls.

 

Start

Start

  • Switch on the keyboard and mouse. Search for their individual power switch.
  • Wake up the computer, move the mouse or hit a key.
  • Make sure the large display is powered on. A green LED on the lower left frame is good, if it’s red, press the button once to switch it on.
  • Log in with your Uni-Mainz username and password.

 

How to do video calls

  • Install your favorite software, e.g. Zoom, Teams, etc. from their webpage.
  • Switch on the Phonum (loudspeaker with microphones sitting on the table). Do so by pressing the power button for 3 seconds.
  • Select the right microphone:
    • Standard meeting rooms (ground level, 1st and 2nd level): Select the Phonum as speaker and microphone, the Logitech USB-Webcam as your camera.
    • 
Meeting room 3rd level: Select „IntelliMix“ as your microphone and loudspeaker to enable echo cancelling.
  • Call!

 

How to display the HDMI Input signal

Meeting room ground level:

  • Connect your computer or any other HDMI source with the HDMI cable to the side of the display furniture.
  • Launch the „Camera App“ and select the HDMI-2-USB-Input-Adapter (press the button to switch cameras).

 

Meeting rooms 1st, 2nd and 3rd floor:

  • Simply plug in the HDMI cable!
    That's all. After a few seconds, it will switch automatically. The build in Windows computer is bypassed, so no credentials are necessary.
  • Adjust the volume via the panel on the side of the smart board (illuminated in blue).

 

Stop

Stop

  • Log out of Windows
  • Switch off only the keyboard and mouse.
  • Please, do not: power down the computer or display. They go into power saving mode 15 minutes after you left the room.
