Sound systems require specialized expertise and experience that is unique to each event and location, from classrooms to large auditoriums and outdoor events. Audio setups for large events can become elaborate and complex, necessitating the use of sophisticated audio mixing boards that must be integrated with campus sound systems and involve multiple microphone selection, use and placement, stage and production monitors and signal processing equipment. Audio systems must also frequently be integrated with video and computer presentation systems.
Audio/Visual Services provides support for OwensLINK videoconferencing daytime and evening classes. Audio/Visual Services works with instructors each semester and helps set up the OwensLINK system for their class and conducts training. When issues arise, OwensLINK instructors require the immediate technical support that Audio/Visual Services is able to provide, which enables the instructor to continue running their class. The OwensLINK videoconferencing unit, switching equipment, control interface, and video playback equipment is a unique system that requires regular maintenance and replacement.
