Supporting Audiovisual Equipment

Portable Audio Kits

To support temporary performances or audio presentations, a portable kit of professional performance audio gear is available to Forum clients. This kit includes full-range, self-powered loudspeakers with stands, two subwoofers, a portable audio mixer, cabling, wired and wireless microphones, power distribution that can tie in with the event power connections located throughout the building, and a full team of audiovisual professionals seamlessly facilitating audio needs.

Portable Video Projection Kits

In concert with the portable audio kit described above, some temporary events may require video presentation. The portable video projection kit includes a foldable projection screen and a video projector, which can be set on a platform or scaffolding as needed. Video input connections and power distribution to tie into the event power connections are also included.

Portable Video Conferencing Carts

The strategy for providing video conferencing on an as-needed basis involves a stock of self-contained video conferencing carts. Each cart contains a flat panel display, a camera, wireless microphones, and a video conferencing codec that connects to the building network when deployed by facility AV staff.

AV Control Room

The AV Control Room serves as the centralized hub for all AV System control, monitoring, and support.

  • AV Remote Support, utilizing building network for status monitoring
  • Each meeting room AV control system includes an isolated connection to the building network to enable remote monitoring and support.
  • Extron Global Configurator Pro runs on a server located in the control room rack, providing a central platform for status monitoring.


Broadcast Connectivity

The three major meeting spaces each include 24-strand fiber home runs to a patch bay located in the Control Room rack.

  • When an event requires connections to broadcasters on the exterior of the building, the AV staff in the building can patch the desired fiber connections through from the event space to a dedicated panel located on the exterior of the building. This fiber backbone is provided to support the portable equipment provided by outside users.
  • Conversion equipment to support the transmission of audio and video over fiber.
  • Broadcast capabilities available in University Room, Friedman Hall, and City View Room.
