HDMI Cables Now in All Media Lecterns
All of the classrooms with media lecterns now offer an HDMI cable installed in the classroom. This means that it should be simpler and easier to connect a laptop for display on the classroom projector. HDMI is a modern digital connector that is commonly used for connecting to HDTVs, and carries video and audio over one simple connection.
Almost all classrooms with a projector have previously offered a VGA cable to connect a laptop or other mobile device. VGA cables often require an adapter for modern laptops to be able to connect to them. Adapters mean having to carry another component with your mobile device, and can sometimes wear out and go bad.
The VGA cables will remain in classrooms, but with an HDMI cable being offered along-side VGA in most of the media lecterns you may find it to be easier to connect up using HDMI. Most Windows laptops in recent years include an HDMI port, and most MacBook Pros since 2013 have had an HDMI port. (If you have a very new MacBook you may have only a USB-C connection, which would mean you would still need an adapter)
A VGA cable is no longer being included when classroom equipment is upgraded, put if your device has only a VGA connector, or doesn’t have an HDMI port, just contact us at 956-8075 and we can assist you with finding an adapter.
