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 complete the form in HudHelp or call 01484 473737 (Option 2) for assistance.  We endeavour to resolve problems within 10 minutes of receiving the call wherever possible.

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

What AV equipment is available?

All teaching rooms have AV equipment pre-installed which is suitable for the general requirements of the room.  

All centrally pooled teaching spaces contain:

Centrally pooled lecture theatres and large teaching spaces also contain:

AV services offer equipment for more specialised needs e.g. wireless microphones, PA systems and plasma screens.  All equipment loaned is free of charge to members of staff but should not be removed from campus.  We recognise the contributions that Schools and Services make to Computing Services and aim to ensure that you are completely satisfied by the services you receive from us. 

What our customers say about us

“Well done on the book launch last night.  It was a really interesting talk, and I’ve added the book to my to-read pile.  It was also one of the most organised and professional online talks I’ve been to – really well managed.  You all did a great job.”  Kate

"I just wanted to write personally to say how much I appreciated the excellent support you and your team gave us all this week. I think it’s fair to say we were all petrified of running our usual in-person conference using online technology, but it went incredibly smoothly, and the calm, measured, knowledgeable assistance you all gave before and during every session was VERY much appreciated. We couldn’t have done it without you, and I don’t think the level of service you gave us was something we would have got elsewhere.  Truly, you all got us through an intimidating week."  Mark
