Projector and Screen

The projector and screen are controlled by the Cisco Video Conference System touch panel. The touch panel also controls the video input selection.

Please make sure the projector is off when you leave the room. To turn the projector off click the Settings icon at the top right and select Standby.

Wired Video Input Options

Wired video input is selected in the Room Controls area on the touch panel in the Source Selection area. Once you have selected the appropriate video input you may have to select Share Screen on the main page and click View in the Selected Source option.

  • HDMI – the ‘HDMI’ input on the input panel
  • VGA 1 – the left ‘COMPUTER’ input on the input panel (note: the audio input to the right of the VGA input is linked to that input)
  • VGA 2 – the right ‘COMPUTER’ input on the input panel (note: the audio input to the right of the VGA input is linked to that input)

Wireless Video Input Options

  • Apple AirPlay
  • Miracast
  • Webex Share

For wireless screen share instructions, see Hybrid Conferencing - How to Share Content Wirelessly to Webex Devices. Wireless video input is selected in the Share Screen area on the touch panel. Simply select the appropriate wireless source option.

Cisco Conferencing Telephone

The Cisco Video Conference System is able to act as a telephone. The call will come through the room’s speakers and will accept any of the microphone inputs. The phone number for the room is displayed on the top left corner of the touch screen.

To place a call, press the Call button on the touch screen. You can then press the number button or the number pad button (see example below) to be able to enter a phone number. Use the standard campus Cisco VoIP - Dialing patterns like you would on a desk phone to place your call. Use the information from the Microphones/Speakers section to control speaker volume, muting, etc.

Cisco Video Conferencing (Touch Panel)

This Cisco Video Conferencing system (touch panel) supports Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Webex, and Google Meet. There are multiple ways to join a meeting using the touch panel in the room.

Video Conferencing - Join a Cloud Meeting from a Cisco Conferencing System

Option 1: The Room was Invited to the Meeting Directly

If your meeting was scheduled by inviting the room to the meeting, a button should appear shortly before the meeting begins allowing you to directly join. This is the easiest method to join a video conference meeting.

Option 2: Manually Join a Meeting from the Room

You can also manually join a meeting. To do so, select the appropriate meeting type on the touch panel. Once prompted, you can enter the required meeting information (room number, password, etc.) or you can visit and provided links and invite the room to your meeting.

Lighting Controls

The lighting can be turned on/off using switches by the doors. More precise control is available using the lighting switch panel (to the right of the touch screen at the lecture area) or using the Cisco Touch Panel. The lighting control panel and Cisco Touch Panel offer five lighting levels. Note: All On and Bright are the same setting on the Cisco Touch Panel.

  • Top Button (Bright) – Full Lighting – Activates all programmable lights in the room – 10 second delay to allow eyes to adjust
  • Second Button (Dim) – Ideal for whiteboard and presenting – Room is dimmed, front is bright – 3 second delay to allow eyes to adjust
  • Third Button (Movie) – Ideal for movies or projecting dark slides – Room is dimmed, front lights are somewhat dimmed, screen lights are off – 3 second delay to allow eyes to adjust
  • Fourth Button (Proj) – Ideal for teaching – Seating is bright, front is somewhat dimmed, screen lights are off – 3 second delay to allow eyes to adjust
  • Fifth Button (Off) – Off – 10 second delay to allow eyes to adjust
  • Dimmer Switch – The bottom “button” is a dimmer switch, it will turn the brightness of the lights up/down as the switch is pressed up/down.  It controls all lights at the same time so you may want to select the closest setting to what you want first.

Lighting options

Please make sure all lights are off when you leave the room.


The master volume is controlled by the volume settings on the Video Conference System.

More detailed settings are available in the 'Room Control' option on the Video Conference System display. You are able to individually adjust microphone levels, and mute, Lectern, Mic 01, Mic 02, and mute the ceiling microphones.

Microphone Options:

  • Lectern - Wired 'MIC' input on the input panel
  • Mic 01 - Lapel mic 01
  • Mic 02 - Lapel mic 02
  • Ceiling Mic - Ceiling installed microphones
