This page is your first stop on your journey to become the tech-savvy communications consultant for your lab or office.  These are general operating procedures and one has to look up official operating manuals to discover more about the device potential.

In order to be as non-discriminatory as possible, these are in English only. KBCon welcomes any initiatives to translate these to Swedish for your reading comfort.

Equipment and software operating manuals

KBE301 (Lilla H), KBE303 (Carl Kempe), KBF301 (seminarierum) and Glasburen have touchpanels that control the audio, video and lighting elements locally, but also can access live video feeds from each other.  These room-specific manuals explain how to use the basic system to give presentations (for conventional bookings)
