Are Your Classrooms High-Definition (HD) Ready?
Currently only a select few rooms are capable of displaying a digital high-definition signal from the projection booth and podium. All other rooms require either an analog connection on any computer used or the digital output must first be converted to analog through an adapter.

These rooms are capable of displaying a presentation in High definition:
BRB Auditorium
CRB Robert Austrian Auditorium



How Do I Request A/V Services For An Event?
A/V services must be requested through the SPO*TS web-site. This includes services for classroom events as well as special events like videotapings and post-production services. You will receive a confirmation once your request has been approved. When necessary you will receive a call from MT&P to work out any special needs and details prior to approval of the request.

Keep in mind that different rooms have different audio/visual capabilities. It is best to first confirm with our scheduling department that the space is appropriate for the type of services you will need before filling out an A/V request form. Our scheduling office can be reached at 215-573-5555. You can also check the R25 web viewer to see if a room is already booked on the date & time of your event.
