About A/V

Our Services

 

The Audio/Visual Department is responsible for providing technological support for meetings and events within the Student Union.  This includes projectors, laptops, microphones, lighting and sound mixing equipment. Please note that while we do offer laptop rentals, we do not provide any computer-related support.


Policies and Best Practices

 

The Student Union utilizes equipment which connects via HDMI or VGA. If your laptop or smart device does not use either of these connections, you will need to procure an appropriate adapter. Please be aware, we do not carry or offer any type of adapters. Mac users in particular are advised to check their connection type, as Apple employs multiple non-standard or proprietary connectors.

For your convenience, all meeting rooms and event spaces have installed A/V systems. We have in-person staff support available during all normal building hours to assist with your needs. If you wish to use A/V equipment, are experiencing an issue, or require assistance, please contact the Information Center at (860) 486-1140 and a technician will be dispatched to your location. Please be aware that only Student Union staff are authorized to operate A/V equipment. The use of equipment without approval may lead to damages, and is also a violation of your usage agreement. Charges for the repair or replacement of lost, stolen or damaged equipment will be automatically billed to the sponsoring department or organization.

Due to liability reasons, we are unable to provide support of any kind for equipment we do not own. This includes customer supplied laptops, which are assumed to have confidential or sensitive information on them. If you are experiencing issues with your laptop or software, please contact your system administrator.
