Using the Projection screen with the New Resolution
With the new projector Image/resolution you will not need to pull the screen down as low, leaving you with 
more black board space. Simply pull down the screen to the desired position, lock into position as you would 
with a window shade. Screen can be retracted by first pulling down about 4 inches, away from the wall, then 
start the fabric up firmly and quickly.
Blu-ray DVD Display
Please note that you can play regular DVD using the Blu-ray player.
1. Touch the Blu-ray DVD Player button on the touch screen
2. Make sure the Blu-ray player is turned on; insert media and press Play using the playback controls on the 
AMX touch screen or the top right corner of the Blu-ray player
3. The volume control is on the AMX touch screen and labeled Program volume. There is also a mute button 
beneath the volume slider
VHS Playback Recommendation/Support
VHS players are no longer being installed in new HD classrooms.
To assist with this technology transition, ETS will loan out VHS players to faculty in need. If VHS playback is 
essential to your class this semester, we can check out portable equipment to you and provide training on how 
to use it. 
If you are interested in digitizing your VHS tapes into DVDs, please contact the Media Resource Center within 
Moffitt Library or email avmccirc@library.berkeley.edu to make an appointment or for more information.
If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to give us a call. We would love to work with 
you to make sure the technology upgrade has as little impact to your classes as possible.
The installed Blu-ray player can ONLY play standard Region 1 formats.

As part of the digital transition, Educational Technology Services (ETS) is rolling out high definition audio/visual equipment in supported General Assignment Classrooms (GAC) in the coming semesters.
