Insert a disc into the DVD player inside the podium. You can control the unit using either the buttons on the touch screen, the controls on the front of the DVD, or the DVD remote. The picture will be displayed on the touch screen in the video window. Use the arrow buttons to navigate the DVD menu.
Many commercial DVD are encoded with region restrictions, meaning a DVD from one country may not play on a player purchased in a different country. Some rooms have multi-region or region free players capable of playing DVD from anywhere, but this function is often unreliable. This is indicated by "Region Free" in front of DVD on each individual classroom's page available from the menu above. To avoid these possible incompatibilities we recommend you play DVDs from your own Laptop.
Be sure to test your DVDs in the room you will teach in before you need it. Some DVD formats, especially those burned from a PC, may play fine in one unit but not on another. Again, to avoid these possible incompatibilities we recommend you play DVDs from your own Laptop.
Some rooms have Widescreen projectors. If you are in one of these rooms, there will be Projector Aspect buttons on the bottom of the touch panel. Select the aspect that best fits your DVD.
