Using Projectors in the Pool Rooms

For correct projector images (avoiding e.g. illegible or fuzzy display, cut off or only partially visible instructor desktops), use the integrated resolution selector in vmChooser (the tool to select events). Projectors will be automatically recognized by the system.

These settings can be selected before choosing an event (See the red labels in the lower middle of the screenshots below):

  • Make sure the projector is turned on before logging in

  • To set the resolution, left click on the pop-up menu.
  • Select the appropriate resolution and activate your choice with the button labeled „Anwenden“.

  • You will be prompted to confirm that the selected resolution works („Do you want to keep this resolution?“).
  • Verify that the projector settings meet your requirements and confirm by clicking the button „Keep“.
  • If the display is not correct, let the timer count down and when the time runs out you can choose another resolution.
A good starting point is 1280×1024. In most cases this will delivery a quality picture. Depending on the projector, you may be able to achieve even better results with higher resolutions.
