Duquesne University School of Law

Classroom A/V

The School of Law's classrooms have all been standardized with similar A/V controls to maximize ease of use.

Typical A/V Control Panel

Extron Control Panel

Generally, to turn the system on, click the ON button, allow 5-20 seconds for the projector to warm up (projector screens will lower in some classrooms) and make sure your desired input source is selected (typically PC if you are using the resident computer). Adjust the volume as necessary.

As seen in the image above you can also connect other devices through these inputs

  • HDMI - for newer laptops/ tablets, iPads, iPhones and iPods (some Macs will require an additional adapter cable)
  • VGA + Audio - for most laptops. Adapter cable required (some Macs will require an additional adapter cable)
  • RCA - for legacy devices such as VCRs



A number of classrooms have wireless handheld/lavaliere microphones (see table below). These can be picked up and returned at the main desk (Room 201). They just need to be turned on/off for use.


Apple TVs

Classrooms are being outfitted with Apple TVs in the summer of 2017. Those with an iPhone, iPad or Mac can wirelessly mirror there displays via Apple's Airplay technology when connected to the wireless DuqNet network. Please contact IT for the password for connecting to each classroom.
