IQ-Wall Tips and Tricks

Connecting your personal devices to the IQ-Wall is easy! Using industry standard HDMI connections, you can have your laptop, tablet, or gaming system setup in no time at all.

Here are a few things to consider:

  • The HDMI A input sends High Definition video and audio to the IQ-Wall (modes 2, 3, and 4.)
  • The HDMI B input sends High Definition video only (Mode 4)

    If you are planning to bring your personal device to connect to the IQ-Wall, don’t forget to bring your HDMI cable to make a connection!

Currently, the IQ-Wall offers four preset Modes of display:

  1. Full screen VisPC
  2. Cloned Laptop HDMI Input A (50-50 split)
  3. VisPC, Laptop A (50-50 split)
  4. Laptop A, Laptop B (50-50 split)

The IQ-Wall in its simplest form is just a computer connected to a really large display. How big? Well, the full screen mode resolution is 11,520 pixels wide by 3,240 pixels high! This is important information if you want to display an image on the IQ-Wall. Bigger pictures are better! If you are working with Media and Marketing to get photos that can be used on the IQ-Wall, please be sure to let them know, so the photos can be sized for maximum impact.

We’ve made some customizations to the IQ-Wall’s integrated VisPC that make it easier to navigate Windows on such a large format monitor. However, working with large windows that span the 20-foot display can be a daunting task. When working in a window, sometimes it helps to make the window smaller so that you can focus in on a smaller area. Then, when you are ready to show to the wider audience, maximize the window.

The IQ-Wall’s VisPC is controlled with a wireless keyboard and mouse. The receiver for the wireless peripherals is located on top of the IQ-Wall equipment cabinet. If you are using the wireless keyboard or mouse, and not getting the result you expect, move a little bit closer to the cabinet.

Scheduling an IQ-Wall Event

Reservations not required, but recommended

When not scheduled for an event, the IQ-Wall is open for unscheduled walk up use by any faculty, staff, or student. However, if you’d like to plan an event at the IQ-Wall, simply make your reservation with the Events Management Service (EMS) at http://rooms.iu.edu.

 

Special arrangements

If your event requires special seating or setup, please also book KC Commons concurrently and Events staff will work with you to configure the space as needed. If you are unable to login to the EMS system, contact Tara Scott at tarscott@iuk.edu.
