Audio Visual setup in new building

We are potentially going to be moving into a building that has some unique features to it.  In it are several classrooms.  Each classroom has what looks like an IDF in each classroom with switches and audio/visual equipment that I am unfamiliar with. The new office building has an ampitheater that has a whole audio/visual setup like a theater where they can show presentations or play movies.  This theater is able to tie in to the separate classrooms and play the same presentation in the theater.

We are not experts at audio visual equipment.  We may not have access to the previous tenants to know how the setup works.  I know this is not enough detail, but what are some basic components that I need to get familiar in order to know how these projectors and system work?  Is there a diagram online that can tell me how these systems are setup?

Most of these kinds setups are done to the clients specs at time and can be very different in how they work.

My guess the system will allow media streams to go between rooms and few different inputs in different places. If you're lucky the system only has one switch/control unit, but it may have a few.
It's most likely a big black box with lots of plug on the back. If you can find that and get a brand name and model it help a heap. Once you know that you should be able to find a user guide online somewhere.

I'd then start will finding the input connections (VGA/HDMI/Mini jack), connecting a device like a laptop to it, then play a long video that has sound. Then with the help of user guide seen where you can send the video stream to.

What does the control unit do? Act as an amplifier and connect speakers to the playing device?
