Please note: This applies ONLY to rooms that are equipped with LCD projectors. All rooms are equipped with 35 mm slide projectors and an overhead projector. Renting an LCD projectors is very expensive, so typically only externally-sponsored sessions have access to one. Contact your section or symposium organizer for further details.
Presenters must supply their own laptops. The projectors will work with either Macs or PCs.
There is a lower limit on Mac Operating Systems. It is recommended that the Mac Operating System is OS 7.5 or later, although OS 7.0 should work without problems.
The projector plug is standard VGA (also known as an HD 15 pin). The port for this plug is on virtually all laptops, including Macs. There will be adapters present for ports that take 2 row 15 pin.
It has been indicated to us that any version of Power Point will work.
It is recommended that display settings be set to 800 X 600 resolution to be absolutely safe, although settings of 1024 X 768 should work without problems.
