A demonstration by an authorized Audiovisual Services Technician will be arranged to ensure that the equipment is operated to manufacturer’s specifications, that the room is returned to "normal" fashion for the next user, and that the investment in the equipment be maintained for the longest possible time period.

If, in our best judgment, the technical challenges involved in a particular presentation or series of presentations during the event requested are of a sufficiently difficult nature, we reserve the right to require a technician (i.e., no demonstrations will be allowed) at our normal hourly rate.

If the request to use the room is received more than 15 business days from the event, then Audiovisual Services will guarantee that a technician will be available (at the current AV Services labor rate).

If the request is received between 14 business days and 5 business days, then the Audiovisual Services staff will begin locating the appropriate technician immediately after the request, for 48 hours, and, if no technician can be found, AV Services reserves the right to:

    •    Recommend that the users schedule the room for a demonstration (charged at current hourly rate).
    •    Attempt to re-schedule the event outside of the 15-day business period.
    •    If the request is made within 48 hours of the event we will try to fill the request.
    •    We will attempt to find a technician (charged at current hourly rate plus a $50 rush charge).
    •    Ask the client to schedule a demonstration sometime within the 48-hour period at current hourly rate).
    •    Ask client to reschedule the event, or as the last measure, we reserve the right to refuse the event support.

 If you have any questions regarding this policy, please call the Audiovisual Services Department at 603-862-2467.
