Seminar Room 1

view of Seminar Room 1

Seminar Room 1 is located in the main Institute building and can comfortably accommodate an audience of 90 - 100 seated at tables.

Chalk Boards

There are six chalkboards (two on either side of the screen and two below the screen). The two central boards are semi-obscured by the main computer projection screen when it is in use. Supplies of chalk, board erasers, and OHP pens are found on the presentation tables placed on either side of the stage.

Computer Presentations

Laptop computers can be connected to a central, ceiling-mounted data projector (Panasonic PT-DZ780), via a standard VGA (pictured) or HDMI connector. Macintosh users who have laptops with thunderbolt port can use the thunderbolt to HDMI or VGA adaptor provided by the INI. Users of laptops with USB Type C Port can use the USB Type C to HDMI or VGA adaptor provided by the INI. For best results, connect the computer to the projector first, and then switch the computer on. The optimal screen display resolution (16:9 aspect ratio) is 1920×1200 (WUXGA) @ 60Hz.

If you do not wish to use your own computer, the Institute has a laptop specifically for use in the seminar room (Windows 10). 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.

Overhead Transparency Projector (OHP)

There is one overhead projector available on request. It projects on to the central projection screen and there is also a digital document camera/visualiser available (pictured), which can be used to display transparencies, documents, and small objects.

Other Equipment

Computer speakers and Internet access are available to all participants.

Sound Amplification

Presenters are asked to use a radio microphone for sound reinforcement and recording purposes. The room is also equipped with an Inductive Loop system for the hard of hearing.

Audio Visual Support

For any queries relating to audio visual facilities in the Institute, or if you need assistance with setting up equipment (microphones, projectors, laptops and other presentation devices), contact the AV Technician in the IT Suite, or email webseminars[at][dot]uk


Note : Whilst the seminar room can accommodate 100 people, there is limited space for buffet lunches; on these occasions, numbers are limited to 90
