We recommend setting up and testing the Airtame app on your device prior to your class period. Please note that you must use the Airtame app; other streaming apps are not supported at this time. If you have any difficulty installing the Airtame app or setting it up, please contact the ITSS Help Desk ([email protected] or (218) 726-8847 ) for assistance.

HDMI Connection

UMD classrooms also have HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) connections, which can plug directly into your laptop or device (some devices will require an adapter).

When you would like to use the HDMI connection, please select "Source" or "HDMI" on the classroom podium keypad.

DVD Connection

For classrooms with a DVD (Digital Video Disc) player, connect the DVD player to the HDMI input by connecting the yellow ended HDMI cable that is labeled DVD to the same cable you would normally plug into your computer.

Please be sure to unplug the DVD player when you are finished.
