 Most of the Lecture Theatres have been refurbished and they now have an Extron room control system which controls all the AV equipment. The majority of the seminar rooms are controlled by an Extron control panel situated either on the desk or wall.  For specific instructions on using the equipment in any particular room,  you can find them listed - by building - on the webpage at this link: AV instructions.

Details of the Equipment in new/refurbished rooms

Lecture Theatres – Single and/or Dual data projection

  • (In most recently refurbished theatres) - SMART Podium or Interactive Projection board. (Pens are provided)
