Special Event Support

  • Many College of Engineering classrooms may be scheduled for special events such as a guest lecturer, orientation or information session, or a student group meeting or activity.
  • It is important to keep in mind that the classroom A/V systems are designed primarily to support instruction, so features you may expect in a general-purpose event venue may not be available.
  • A select subset of classrooms do offer additional equipment and capabilities useful for special events.

Technical and Production Assistance

If your event has audio/video requirements beyond what you are comfortable doing in a self-service manner, we suggest working with a technical producer.  For recording and production, Nexus is often able to assist. Most other events, including those needing live streaming, professional recording for broadcast, or live mixing of many microphones, can be produced by Michigan Creative for a fee.

Note: CAEN is able to offer training on the use of special event capabilities and other equipment available in classrooms.  We are not able to offer production services at this time, or lend event-related equipment beyond what is already installed in the classroom.

Classroom Capabilities for Events

The specific features vary by classroom, but can include event support capabilities such as:

  • Additional microphones
  • Audio and Video connection panels for an outside contractor or event technical producer to access the house system
  • Connections to overflow viewing rooms
  • Video conferencing links to remote classrooms

Technical Producers: see Technical Guide to Event Panels
