Audio/Visual Equipment Acquisition


For departments that are looking to improve the technology needs of their space on campus, Educational Technology Services will design a recommended Audio/Visual system for departmental rooms to meet their needs as well as suit the space available. AV systems are based on Classroom & Conference room standards and tailored to the unique customer needs. For more information, you can review our Equipment Standards.

Standard Services and Features

The general service provided is as follows:

  • Consultation, design, and quote for the AV system.
    • AV design examples include sound reinforcement for presenters, projection and LED displays, and flexible learning environments that include huddle or collaborative learning technologies.
    • Other considerations will be associated costs for electrical, network, furniture, and outside contractors when necessary.
  • With requesting the department's approval on design and secured funding, ETS will handle ordering, staging and pre-programming of equipment before scheduling installation.
  • Office of Information Technology will also assist in scheduling auxiliary ISU resources such as Telecommunications for network drops and Facilities Management for electricians or carpenters.
  • ETS will provide end-user training and documentation at the completion of the system installation.


  • This service is meant for ISU departmental spaces only which are not fully supported by OIT. General classrooms currently supported by OIT are internally evaluated. For a listing of general classrooms, please see Academic Classrooms.
  • Funding must be secured before equipment ordering and scheduling can begin.
  • There will be an MOU if the system/setup falls outside of OIT/ETS support guidelines.

SLA: You can expect this service to be completed in 60 business days.
