Book AV support

Due to COVID-19 the university is not currently offering any face-to-face training.

Online training resources

Wireless mics

Permanent chargers with two wireless microphone transmitters have been installed in lecture theatres and advanced seminar rooms across all campuses.

What this means for users

When you arrive at the theatre, all you are required to do is select a charged microphone transmitter from the charger, ensure it is switched on and then attach it to yourself ready to move freely around the room.

Please note:

The transmitters will only work in the venue in which they are installed. Please do not remove them or change any of the settings on the wireless microphone unit .

If you wish for training or practice in the operation of equipment for a specific room you should book the room using room bookings then visit the Audio Visual booking form to make a training booking online.

Turning Off Equipment:

If you know that there will not be a class or presenter following you in the room, please shut down the equipment using the touch-panel. This saves lamp life, equipment life and electricity. There will be a button on the main page labelled "Shut Down". Note that the projector will stay on for up to a minute after you touch this button as it will run cooling fans until it reaches its safe temperature.

Digital Signage

Digital signage screens provide a much more effective and instant way for the university to get messages across all campuses. Our digital signs can display rich digital media content, videos, live streams, TV and social media information on a range video walls, video projectors and large digital screens.

We manage our digital sign content using an application called Appspace.
