  • If the Mac has been turned off and needs to be manually started, look for the translucent panel inside the podium cabinet marked “Mac Power” and insert a pen to press the power button through the opening. You’ve successfully pressed the button when the Mac produces a sound.
  • Use the small touch screen to control the podium functionality (e.g., audio levels, room lighting, screen mute, etc…)
  • If the projected image appears pink or yellow, quickly refresh the system by switching to the document camera and then back to the Mac.
