AV AMX 6-button control

Media Switch and volume control

Rooms E1-012 E1-013 E1-014

Button panel layouts differ from room to room


Show media on flat panel display or projector

Select the media to be used for the presentation by pressing the corresponding button on the panel. If a laptop is connected the laptop will be shown when selecting Computer on the media switch.

Once you press a button, the red light in top left corner of the button lights up and a command is sent to the projector or flat panel display, to accept the incoming signal from the selected media. The projector will need a few minutes to warm up before an image appears.

Projectors are generally set to automatically turn off after 3 hours continuous use. To reset this timer, briefly change the media before continuing (i.e change from PC to Video and back to PC) as you otherwise might be in the middle of a presentation when the 3 hours are up.

If you are in a room with a ceiling mounted projector, the image will appear in a couple of minutes as the projector has to warm up first. During this phase please desist from pressing any buttons.  If no image appears after 5 minutes please call technical support.


To connect a laptop to the AV system, plug in the VGA and 3.5mm cables, duplicate the laptop display and press the 'PC' or 'Computer' button on the media switch.


The volume of the speakers is controlled by the volume buttons (up/down).

Ensure the Dell PC or laptop audio is not muted and turned up if the presentation contains an audio component. The computer volume control is by way of an icon on the taskbar at the bottom right of your screen. Hovering over the speaker icon will show you the volume as a percentage of maximum volume. Click on the icon to adjust the volume
