Setup a basic Audio/Video system that we can count on.
What Will Be Done
Set up a permanent A/V Rack near the electrical panel south of the elevator. Mount Speakers on the columns surrounding the hackitorium. Run wires between the respective components. Place speakers in different zones. Connect all the remotes to the new Audio/Video rack somehow. Create signage that details the setup and its operation for anyone to use. Fix, Order, and Replace microphones and cables and create a storage space for them on the rack. Create storage for microphone stands and other event equipment in the Elevator lobby.
What Areas in the Space Will This Affect
Elevator Lobby and Hackitorium
Who Will Be Doing It
Jarrod Hicks and/or any other volunteers.
Why This Will Be Good
We spend too much of time fumbling before events trying to get things working. Events that are important to the space such as 5MoF should be made easier. Having the ability to have a speaker or a presentation on short notice may increase the chances of this happening.
Why This Will Be Bad
Setting up an AV system that is easy to use, means more of us will use it more often.
How Long Will It Take
Time to set up the rack and run cables. Noisebridge can operate during this RFP
In A Fantastic World, What Extra Budget Would You Like
Money for new equipment, cables, and rack. TBD once a schematic design of the system is produced and our current A/V capabilities are determined
