Reserve a Media:Scape

Using the Media:Scapes

Please note that video adapters are available at the access service desk on the first floor.

Instructions

1. Turn on the Display

All of the media:scape tables have LG flat-panel LCD displays attached. Three of the tables have dual 32” displays and two have 42” displays. There are also “roaming” media:scape tables on the first and second floor that have single 42” LG displays. Regardless of the display, you can turn the monitor on by pressing the button underneath the “LG” logo along the center-bottom display bezel.

2. Turn on the Table

To use the media:scape tables, first make sure the table is "on". You can do this by looking for the power button that is located on the media well in the center of the table. If the light is white, press the button once to activate the table and the light will become green.;

3. Connect your Laptop/Tablet

Laptops, tablets, and other devices can be connected to the media:scape tables using Pucks using either a HDMI or VGA connector cable.

  1. Open the media well and remove a Puck
  2. Connect the Puck to your laptop (The Puck will glow).  There are 2 connection types available at every table:  HDMI and VGA.  Connection adapters are available at the circulation desk for checkout.
  3. Share what’s on your laptop or device by press- ing the number that appears on the Puck. This represents the screen you will present to. If two numbers are present you can present to one or both screens at the same time.

Troubleshooting

When connecting to a media:scape table with a dual monitor setup, you may need to reduce your screen resolution in order for your computer to display correctly. If you encounter issues, please follow these steps:

  1. In the display settings for your Windows computer, set the resolution to 1366x768 or lower.
  2. If you are using a Mac, you may want to set your resolution to 1280x720.
  3. Adjust the refresh rate to 60hz.
