Media Services provides a full range of audiovisual equipment support to classrooms, and to on-campus conferences and meetings.
All classrooms are equipped with a presentation system consisting of projector, Internet connected computer, DVD/VCR player, and an audio system. Where a need has been demonstrated, basic systems have been supplemented with document cameras, touchscreen technology, and/or High Definition displays. Most presentation systems can accommodate guest connections for user-owned equipment. Portable equipment can be ordered for transient use in the presentation rooms or in spaces not equipped. Media Services also provides training in the use of classroom presentation systems.
Media Services manages reservations of special use venues (not classrooms) for events of the College community (see procedure below) and for rentals to outside users.
