A/V Upgrades in RLC 102, 104, 105, and 107

Over the summer, the IT department upgraded the A/V equipment in RLC 102, 104, 105, and 107.  The addition of speakers, an AirPlay device, and a Pixie control unit in each room make the rooms more versatile than ever before.

The Pixie control unit sits on the top of the teacher's desk (see images below).  It allows for a laptop (or other personal device with an appropriate adaptor) to be connected to the projector via a VGA cable. It also allows for audio to be played over the new speakers via a standard 1/8" audio jack.

The AirPlay device also allows for the transfer of audio and visual data to the projector, except it does so wirelessly!  That's right, no more tangled wires.  Just a couple clicks of the mouse and your device is seamlessly connected to the projector.
