IT manages the AV support, which includes reservations, setup and breakdown of rental equipment within the rooms and staffing, if needed, for LBNL’s three designated A/V conference rooms. The rooms are:

  • 50 Auditorium
  • 66 Auditorium
  • 54-130 Pers Hall
    • Please note the 54 Pers Hall projector and podium PC are now available for use at no charge.  The remote used to turn the projector on and off is located at the podium.  You may simply reserve the room and operate the equipment yourself.  Charges will apply if AV support is requested.

Each of the three rooms is equipped with the following equipment:

  • LCD projector
  • Room sound system with wireless lapel and hand held microphones
  • Desktop PC mounted at the podium
  • 4-port switch box in the podium, should you wish to use your own laptop

Regular A/V hours are 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday--Friday.  Any labor performed outside these hours will incur overtime charges.  Minimum labor charge for weekend days is four hours (and depends on staff availability).

Getting Started

Requests for A/V support can be made using the A/V Request Form.

For questions, please send e-mail to A/V support and the provision of rental laptops and portable LCD projectors to conference rooms other than the three mentioned have been discontinued. Note: For lecture or meeting videotaping and/or content editing, or duplication services, contact Creative Services.
