Working with the ProjectorImage of the podium control panel with laptop button highlighted
Select the Laptop button on the podium control panel. The projector will automatically detect the laptop's video signal.
If the projector doesn't automatically detect the laptop, look at the function keys on the laptop. You should see one of the function keys with an icon on that looks like two squares with a slash between it (Usually F5 or F7). Press the Fn key + that key. You may have to do this more than once.
