Repair History

  • 04/15/2019: The wall-mounted controller (Extron MLC 104 IP Plus MediaLink Controller) failed. It could not send correct IR signals to the front projector to turn it on or off. We installed a new controller with the same make and mode and the old one is sent to Extron for repair. The repaired controller will be used as a spare part.

  •  04/15/2019.  The document camera  (WolfVision VZ-8Light4 Desktop Visualizer) failed. It could not autofocus properly. We used a similar unit from Foster Room and the old unit is sent to WolfVision for repair.
