The following is the list of UMIACS-managed conference rooms in the Atlantic building. General topics:

ATL 3100A

This conference room comes equipped with a touch panel that can be used to control the video and audio source(s) and level(s) being used to project to the displays in the room. There is a Room PC ("PC Main"), a Solstice Pod ("Solstice"), and an HDMI cable to use a laptop or external device ("Laptop").

There is also an "Audio Override" output device that you can project any of the input sources to. This decouples the source audio from the source video so that you can send audio from one source to the audio output while maintaining video from a difference source. The primary use of this is to be able to prevent echoing and have teleconferencing participants be able to hear the room audience when using both a laptop and the room PC to present. With both devices in the same teleconference session, leave "Laptop" as the source video and switch the audio override to "PC Main" to display what is on the laptop but use the microphones spread throughout the room to hear the audience.
