Audio and Visual Services

Audio and Visual Services
The Audio Visual Services Department, located on the fourth floor of the Main Library, supports activities of the college community that require the use of audio and or visual media.

Smart Classrooms

Several media-supported classrooms, including some with rear-screen data and video projection, in Mudd Center may be scheduled through Audio Visual Services. A laptop connection is available for data display, and VCR and DVD players are permanently housed in the rooms. Academic classes have priority for using the rooms, but student organizations may reserve these rooms once the academic schedule is determined. Audio Visual Services also supports the other smart classrooms throughout campus, assisting users with connectivity and projection.


Audio/Visual Equipment

A wide variety of audio-visual equipment is available for use by faculty, students, or campus organizations. Most equipment for classroom use is available on a free-loan basis. The department also provides equipment for college-related, non-academic uses on a rental basis. The AV staff provides instruction in the use of audiovisual equipment and offers training in the use of the "smart" classrooms on campus.


Video/Audio Production

Audio Visual Services offers basic video production services in support of classroom instruction.
