    Smart Classrooms

    Over 80% of Colorado College classrooms are smart, meaning they have a projector or flat-screen TV and sound system, other items (DVD/VHS player, Blu-Ray player, etc.), and accept computer or other peripheral input.

    List of Smart Classrooms

    Many of our classrooms have been upgraded to Crestron digital control systems. They are as user friendly as the older SP Control Panel rooms, but offer more flexibility, and improved signal quality over the analog systems. Touch the screen to wake the system. Turn the projector on by pressing ON, or by selecting a video source. You can play audio without turning on the projector by pressing the AUX AUDIO button and connecting your device via the 3.5mm headphone connection at the rack. Rooms that have Apple TV or Air Media will indicate which Airplay network or IP address to enter on your device. To shutdown the system, press the power icon in the upper right corner and confirm on the following page.StartupMain


    All smart classrooms will have HDMI or VGA connections, both in most cases. Many rooms are also equipped with Thunderbolt to HDMI and USB-C to HDMI adapters

    Normally, when connecting your computer via HDMI, audio will automatically be routed to the system. In the event it is not, however, follow the steps outlined below.

    Connecting PC audio

    When you hover your mouse over the speaker icon, audio routing will be indicated. It should reflect your connected HDMI destination, i.e. Crestron, projector or TV model number, etc. If it shows the built-in speakers (Speakers / Headphones), right-click the speaker icon and open Sounds. Select the display device, and Set Default.

    Windows sound

    Connecting Mac audio

    Hover over the volume icon at the top of the screen and select the Output (to) Device. If you do not see the icon, open the system preferences and select Sound. Choose the output tab and select the HDMI destination.
