Well, you know only when you are there (but you can try to visit/ 
inspect the room earlier). There are approx. 40 university rooms in  
parallel use and as usual these beamers are in operation day for day  
during the semesters/trimesters. And if one is broken, it gets  
replaced by another brand... So you may a quite new one or a very old  
one that is only capable of VGA resolution ;) But in my experience  
most older models have at least composite and VGA but no DVI/HDMI.  
With the CamCorder, I connected it to my notebook through FireWire and  
just mirrored the picture to the VGA out :)
