Some University Classrooms have a Dual-Projector also know as a Dual-Screen environment. 

These rooms are much like other University Classrooms by having an A/V system in the room to project content. The advantage of these rooms is having 2 computer monitors at the podium and 2 projectors and screens that can be utilized. While using the system you may use the screens together or independently via the control panel interface. 

This is a basic drawing of what the design of the Dual Projector room setup will be.

From the Control Panel you can select different sources during of operation. Below are some examples of what you might use.

PC Primary: This screen is the main desktop for the PC. 

PC Extended: This screen is an extension of the PC desktop space. 

Doc Cam: The Document Camera is the available tabletop camera for displaying objects on the projection system. 

Personal VGA/ HDMI Connection: The podium will feature a connection to allow for the connection from a personal device via an HDMI or VGA connection to the projection system.

 

In the Dual-Projector Classrooms these different sources have the ability to be independently selected and displayed on each projector.
