Whether your event requires a simple PowerPoint presentation or sophisticated multi-media resources, the Communications and Events team will seamlessly coordinate and assemble resources for all the audio/visual components of your event. This includes photography, videotaping, spatial lighting effects, sound systems, monitors and more, as appropriate. Not all services may be suitable for every event.
Some questions to think about when planning the audio component of your event are listed below.
- Do you need microphones for lecturers, panelists, and/or audience members? Will you need to capture audio from all participants? Will there be an audience Q and A?
