Equipment and Technical Support by ICS

Audiovisual equipment and technical support is provided by UWEX Instructional Communications Systems (ICS), located in The Pyle Center. A wide range of equipment including microphones, DVD players, camcorders, projectors, computers with their peripherals, and much more are available upon request. Certain assistive listening systems that are compatible with a variety of hearing instrument styles for hearing aid user are available, and videoconference connections for those preferring access to sign language interpreters can also be arranged. For specific details about all available services and equipment, rates, and user policies, please refer to the Instructional Equipment and Services Price List.

ICS staff advises and guides planners, presenters, and participants in the use of all instructional tools. In addition, all meeting spaces in The Pyle Center are equipped with Help Desk phones which are answered by in-house staff able to provide immediate assistance. Because distance education requires connections to remote sites, the ICS Operations Center staff also provides support and consultation services to locations worldwide.

To arrange for technical equipment and services, first contact the ECC Event Planning and Sales Department. An event planner will determine whether it is necessary to refer you to additional ICS staff when selecting the appropriate technology to match your needs and to determine costs.

Costs for audiovisual equipment and support, distance learning services and other Instructional Communication and Digital Media Services vary according to the type of work, schedule, location, and other factors.
