Lecture halls at KTH Campus
The lecture halls listed on this page have been adapted for Zoom and hybrid teaching with a document camera and microphone, in addition to the technical equipment that was in the hall before. The new equipment is connected via an orange USB cable and is compatible with Zoom.
In addition to the halls with built-in video conferencing systems , a number of lecture halls and classrooms have been prepared to be able to easily conduct video meetings with Zoom, for example for both distance and hybrid teaching.
The lecture halls have microphones and a document camera installed. The document camera facilitates the opportunity for you as a teacher to convey what you write on paper to everyone in the room and in Zoom. You show this camera instead of the camera that shows you, it is not possible to have both running at the same time on the same login in the meeting.
Adapted equipment in the lecture halls
This text explains the technical equipment and Zoom settings for all halls. You will also find room-specific information on the teacher's desk in each room.
When using the document camera, you place the paper you are writing on directly under the camera and focus by raising and lowering the camera.
The document camera is called "UVC-Camera" in Zoom and you will find it in the list among your other cameras. You can find your connected cameras either under the Zoom settings (support.zoom.us) or by clicking the arrow pointing upwards next to the camera button when you start the Zoom meeting.
The microphones in the lecture halls are connected to the sound system in the hall, including the hearing loop. It is recommended to use the built-in microphones instead of your own, in order to include the hearing loop.
In each room there are two microphones: a handheld wireless one as well as a portable one that is hooked over the ears.
The microphones are called "USB Audio Codec" in Zoom and you will find them in the list among your other microphones. You can find your connected microphones either under the Zoom settings (support.zoom.us) or by clicking the arrow pointing upwards next to the microphone button when you start the Zoom meeting.
Connect the Zoom equipment with orange USB cable
To facilitate remote teaching, audio from microphones and image from the document camera have all been connected to one orange USB cable. Once you have connected the USB cable to the computer, the microphone and document camera will be available to select in Zoom.
If you have a KTH Mac computer, you need to download the software"Displaylink" to be able to use the equipment in the room; see Software for KTH Mac – KTH Self Service for instructions. If you have a standalone Mac computer, you need to download drivers for Mac standalone (konftel.com) .
Note: Make sure you have the right type of USB port on your computer, or buy an adapter. Read more on the page Connect with USB in Zoom and hybrid rooms .
