KTH's IT department is responsible for existing technical equipment in the venues on campus and provides support for events. It is a good idea to review technical conditions early in your planning as this is often a key component of holding an event.
Venues at KTH have standard technical equipment that varies depending on the hall but covers most event needs of a more simple nature. Other equipment is available to hire internally at KTH but if the event requires a more advanced technical solution this is ordered from the contracted supplier for event services.
Where time is available, KTH's technicians can help during the start-up of an event and go through the existing technical equipment. There is also opportunity to contact the technicians as and when this is necessary. They will then try to assist as soon as possible.
Please send your request to the IT department email@example.com .
Things to keep in mind when ordering technology
Review the existing technical equipment and go through what your planned activities require from a technical standpoint.
Please be sure to place your order with KTH IT department in good time. They have limited resources and with multiple events held at the same time, equipment and support can become fully booked.
At events which only make use of existing equipment and KTH's internal technical support, it is a good idea to designate a person to have responsibility for technical issues, who can familiarise themselves with the system before the event.
If the event contains digital presentation material, this should be tested on the computer to be used during the presentation to make sure that all the elements work. If several presentations are planned, it is good to use a dedicated presentation computer.
Brief any speakers about the equipment to be used, particularly the type of microphone that will be used and note any preferences. Some speakers want to have the freedom to walk around with a lapel microphone, while some prefer a desktop microphone.
Check how much time is needed for setting up equipment and ensure that technicians have access to the venue.
