Seminar Room 2 is located upstairs in the Gatehouse building and can accommodate an audience of 42 people seated.
There are two sliding chalk boards (one above the other), although the upper board and the projection screen can not be used simultaneously. The tilting projection screen is used for laptop and OHP presentations.
Laptop computers can be connected to a central, ceiling-mounted data projector, via a standard VGA connector (pictured). Macintosh users are reminded to bring thier own VGA display adaptor. For best results, connect the computer to the projector first, and then switch the computer on. The optimal screen display resolution is 1024x768 @ 60Hz.
If you do not wish to use your own computer, the Institute has a laptop specifically for use in the seminar room. Presentations can be transferred to the INI laptop using a USB device or if the presentation is provided in advance. The INI laptop supports Adobe PDF and Microsoft PowerPoint presentations.
An OHP, computer speakers, digital document camera, 35mm slide projector, VHS video cassette player and Internet access are available on request.
The room is equipped with an Inductive Loop system for the hard of hearing. Presenters may be asked to use a radio microphone for recording purposes.
