Video Playback Remote Controls


Remote Controls

If you wish, you can request remote control, and control your program using the telephone keypad in your classroom. You will be able to rewind, fast-forward, or stop the tape at any time during the playback. Please inform the technician on duty if your presentation requires remote control. You can read the instructions for using remote control online or you can download and save pdf versions of the instructions for "VHS Remote Control [pdf]" or "DVD Remote Control [pdf]". You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader on your computer to view the instructions. Since remote control of DVD's is a limited resource, please reserve this service when scheduling your playback.
