Multimedia Technology and Equipment: Audio Systems

Quality audio amplification is essential to the success of any large conference. That's why all of our major meeting spaces are equipped with audio amplification systems. There are 54 of the finest audio speakers available in the Ballroom, alone. Each audio system will let you fine tune the volume yourself with wall-mounted dials located in the room. There are a multitude of additional audio enhancement options are available to you.

  • Lecterns in stand-alone polished wood or tabletop versions.
  • Wireless hand held or lapel microphones. Many of our best presenters insist on these for freedom of movement and flexibility.
  • Disc Audio players. We often route audio from DVD, VCRs and computers through the house speakers for maximum effect from your presentations.

Multimedia Technology and Equipment: Computer Resources

The UT Conference Center features two state-of-the-art multimedia computer labs. Each Lab is equipped with state of the art Dell brand computers, both labs run the latest XP operating systems software. Custom client software can easily be installed on each work station for employee or customer training programs. If you have problems finding an instructor for your computer training sessions, let us help. We have an entire University to ask.

Each one of the student workstations in both labs enjoy full multimedia equipment - stereo sound cards with comfortable headsets and microphones which let your guests experience the sounds of your work, while access to high speed CD-ROM playback systems make graphic-intensive work easy and fast. Ergonomically adjustable furniture keeps guests comfortable while the instructor's computer screen can be displayed via Smart Board monitors in each lab.

Network Connectivity
Each workstation within the labs has direct connection to the Internet. The University provides a wireless system that with just a few minutes from our technical staff will allow you access to the Internet with your own wireless laptop as well.

Portable Computer Service
If you need just one computer instead of a whole lab, we have high-performance rental computers as laptops or on roll around carts, complete with printers and connectivity equipment.
