AVIT News and announcements
Radio microphone changes
New legislation concerning radio microphone frequencies will come into force over the period January 2011- September 2012. This will impact on all in the University who have wireless microphones. See full details
Audio PA Systems in Teaching spaces
Please note: All audio PA sytems installed in teaching spaces and centrally bookable areas are suitable for spoken voice reinforcement only and are not suitable for amplification of live music
VHS playback in Lecture theatres
Although no time frames are available, in the near future traditional VHS playback machines of sufficient quality will no longer be obtainable in the marketplace either as single stand-alone units or in combination with DVD playback machines. Therefore, when future installations take place within central teaching spaces we will no longer be able to provide a VHS playback machine service. Boyd Orr 1 lecture theatre has been upgraded this summer and no VHS playback equipment has been installed.
Transferring to DVD
If University academic/ teaching staff desire to have any existing teaching materials transferred from VHS to DVD this can be done in-house by the Media Unit who can also advise on copyright issues, in the Learning and Teaching Centre.
Contact details for the Media Unit can be obtained from their web page at http://www.gla.ac.uk/services/learningteaching/servicesweprovide/ where a full list of facilities is also available.
