Classroom Displays

MLC Classrooms in the WCC, Music Hall, and Music Center are equipped with a display that can be hooked up to your Surface Pro. There are three general display types; interactive whiteboard, projector, and TV. Please see the Interactive Whiteboard page for information on those specific devices. Instructions on connecting to the projectors and TVs can be found below.

TVs

    • Plug the USB cable from the docking station into your Surface Pro. There should be a label on the cable indicating it is the right one to plug into your computer.
    • Turn on the TV.
    • The default TV input is HDMI1. If your Surface Pro screen does not appear, use the Input button on the remote to select HDMI1.
    • The best screen resolution for your Surface Pro when using the TVs is 1920x1080. Click here for instructions on how to change it.
    • Some of the TVs are mounted on adjustable mounts. Please keep them pushed as close to the wall as possible to reduce strain on the mounts.

Projectors

  • Plug the USB cable from the docking station into your Surface Pro. There should be a label on the cable indicating it is the right one to plug into your computer.
  • Turn on the projector.
  • The projector should default to the proper source to show your Surface Pro. If your Surface Pro screen does not appear, use the Source Search button on the remote.

Sound

  • In most cases, sound is still run through the classroom speakers, not the TV. 
  • Your Surface Pro needs to be connected via the USB to the docking station for sound to work. 
  • Sound levels are controlled on your Surface Pro and through the volume knobs on the box found either in the podium or on the credenza.
