Wall Panel Instructions

All of the classrooms and labs in the Shields Science Center use Crestron Wall Panel Control Systems. These are wall mounted panels you can use to operate the video projector, select the input for the projector, and control the volume. The projector screen is controlled by a switch on the wall located near the Crestron Control panel.
