Knutsford u3a Resources
The use of Audio – Visual effects during meetings can often enhance the subject being discussed. With this in mind Knutsford u3a has put together a selection of equipment which Activity Groups can borrow. Most people find that after a small amount of training, the various items are easy to connect together and operate.
Typical applications are:
- Showing DVDs on a large screen with sound
- Showing PowerPoint slides using a computer and projector
- Showing 35mm slides
- Using PA equipment to ensure that speakers at meetings can be heard.
If you want to learn more about the equipment and its potential to enhance your meetings or to have some training on its use please contact Robert Watson on the number below.
The following equipment is available:
- HP Laptop Computer
