Jones Library (Amherst public library)
There are film viewing stations near the media collection on A Level of Frost.
Have a film from a different region (international)?
Region codes are used to control the international distribution of material. DVD players are often region-locked, meaning they can only play DVDs encoded with certain regions. Region 1 is Canada, the United States, and Puerto Rico. International films are often not playable on DVD players in the United States.
Note: All stations are controlled by identical remotes. It is possible that using one remote at one station will interact with equipment at other stations. Hold the remote within 4” of the word “Sony” at the bottom of the screen to minimize interference.
For Station 3: Use the “Input” button on the remote to select source of either Blu-ray or World Wide video (WW VCR) for videotapes.
