Reserve a Media:Scape

Stations 1 - 2 Instructions

1. Connect the HDMI cable to your device and an HDMI port.

  • HDMI ports are located under the lid in the center of the table.
  • Some devices require an adapter (available on the first floor).
  • Note which port number you use (#1 – 4).

2. Turn on the monitors and the HDMI switch.

  • Monitor power button is located on the lower left of each monitor.
  • HDMI power is located on the box.
  • HDMI switch is on when the red light is illuminated.

3. Use the HDMI switch remote to select the correct HDMI input. 

4. The image on your laptop/tablet should display on the monitor.

Stations 3 - 5 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.
