Multimedia Viewing Station

This station is located next to the popular literature section by Starbucks. It houses a VHS player, multiregional DVD player, and Blu-ray player. Headphones can be checked out and connected to the monitor for a better viewing experience.

Blu-Ray Player

Can be checked out at the Tech Desk

  • Press the "Input" button on the right side of the monitor to pull up the source search
  • Press the "Input" button a second time to change the source to HDMI1

Press the "Subtitles" button on the controller; press multiple times to cycle through subtitle options

Multiregional DVD Player

  • Ensure the monitor's source is set to AV
  • Press the power button on the DVD player

VHS Player

  • Ensure the DVD player is off
  • Ensure the monitor's source is set to AV
