CougarNet Audiovisual Resources

CougarNet strives to support educators and students with their technical needs in a constantly changing environment. To address the evolving needs of these groups within the steady flow of new technology, CougarNet has standardized on a number of audiovisual technologies to maximize connectivity and allow as many users as possible to take advantage of campus resources.

These standard technologies are:

1/8" Connector: It allows you to connect consumer audio sources to a sound system. Such sources include laptops, tablets, cd players, and MP3 players.

Projector Sound: These are the speakers used that are inside the projector. Often they are described as sounding small and tinny. If these speakers are not sufficient for your use, portable speakers may be reserved from the CougarNet Helpdesk by a faculty or staff member.

Speaker Sound: In some spaces the speaker is in its own enclosure (and not inside the projector). These speakers tend to produce very nice sound.

Composite Video: This video signal is seen commonly in VCR and DVD players. It uses one, usually yellow, RCA connector. The quality of composite video will away be poor (standard definition).

VGA: Used here VGA is a generic term for a type of analog video signal. The connector it uses is commonly referred to as a VGA connector. Its quality can generally be classified as good (high definition).

HDMI: This is a digital video format. Our systems provide a standard HDMI plug for connectivity. It produces good video (high definition). Adapters can be used to connect devices with DVI or Dual-Mode DisplayPort video outputs to these systems.  You are responsible for providing your own adapters.

Document Camera: Sometimes called a visualizer, a Document Camera is a camera raised above a platform. Documents and objects are placed under the camera and shown on a large display for whole room to see.

Smart Board: The Smart Board is the brand name of the interactive whiteboards used at Concordia. With specific software drivers and a USB cable the Smart Board allows users to interact with their computer at the Smart Board.

The following table lists these standard technologies and the rooms that support them.
