AV Control Panels

There are (3) AV control touchpanels:

  1. One is on the stage podium
  2. One is in 212A on the rack
  3. The last is removable, and can be used in the Mezzanine, or stored in 212A on the rack shelf so wayward curiosity or trickster fingers don't lose a battle to temptation during a performance or presentation

Assistive Listening Devices

Each of these rooms are equipped with integrated infrared listening systems and have the following:

  1. A battery charger that charges 2 batteries (one per side)
  2. (2) headsets
  3. (2) batteries

The headsets, batteries, and charger are all located in the locked cabinet of the Podium. Faculty needs to have an A/V key (available from Key Issues or short-term checkout from Media Loan) to unlock this cabinet. Signage is posted indicating the classroom has Assistive systems available.

If you are approached by someone who needs to use the equipment, they will need a headset and a battery, and a mic will need to be unmuted at the podium

If the podium is being used, the podium mic is recommended; if presenting from somewhere other than the podium (chalkboard, tables in middle of the room, moving while speaking) then the wireless mic and batteries can also be found in the podium.
