Davis Family Library 201 - Watson Lecture Hall

In this room you can project from a laptop, watch a DVD, VHS, and Laser Disc and project documents from a document camera.

This room has 3 screens that can be projected on. One in the center (Video Screening) and two side by side (Classroom presentation). If you only want to project from one source such as a showing a DVD you would want to use the Video Screening mode, this has a larger center screen. If you are doing a presentation and would like to project from a laptop and show a clip from a VHS at the same time then you would want to use Classroom Presentation mode.
