Changes for 2017

  • BYOD. Single and Dual projector classrooms follow the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) standard set by the Alter Hall Redesign team in 2014. Labs and Specialty rooms -- which rely on dedicated PCs for unique functions -- will receive updated models. 
    A laptop or other portable device will be required in order to project in BYOD rooms. Many faculty already have a Xavier-issued laptop for this purpose; personal devices can also be used, if preferred. Adjuncts who lack a laptop may check out a loaner from the CLC 3rd floor Library Circulation Desk a week prior to semester start.

  • Solstice wireless display. Solstice wireless display will be the default touchpanel display option, accommodating the widest variety of laptops and mobile devices. (For more information on Solstice, please consult "Related Articles" on the sidebar). Lecterns also include HDMI and mini DisplayPort cable connectors compatible with most laptops. 
  • VGA retirement. VGA is considered a legacy connector, and has been omitted from this and all future classroom refreshes.
  • Lampless projectors. Projectors which currently rely on lamps will be replaced by lampless models. eliminating need for regular lamp replacements and disruption of service.
  • Document cameras. Permanently-mounted Epson document cameras are now standard-issue in Single and Dual-projector classroom.
  • New lecterns. Older, bulkier lecterns are being upgraded to streamlined, high-quality equivalents.
