Instructions for connecting Macs to the Podium Displays

It appears that there have been a couple of issues in connecting Apple computers to display from the podiums. There a a few simple steps to follow, which should enable you to display your desktop through the projector:

  • Connect your laptop to the VGA cable via dongle (if you need a dongle, let a volunteer or organizer know)
  • On your computer go to System preferences
  • Click on Displays
  • Select Detect Displays

This should find the display and give you options about how you want your desktop to display (through the projector alone or mirroring your desktop through the projector).

If you have any problems let a volunteer or organizer know and we will try to get it resolved as quickly as possible.
