What is AV?

AV stands for Audio Visual.  It is the provision of equipment which allows people to communicate an idea effectively.  This can be TV screens, projectors, speakers, microphones, video recordings and so on.

The Central AV team is responsible for making sure that the technical equipment in the centrally pooled rooms is working sufficiently for teaching and learning to take place.  If you find that there is a problem in one of the pooled rooms, please email cls.avsupport@hud.ac.uk or call 01484 473737 for assistance.

The Central AV team also support University events providing screens, portable PA equipment and laptops when required.
