Service Categorie: Media

The service includes the conceptual planning and implementation of technical equipment (e.g. beamers, microphones, etc.), their maintenance as well as the support of the local contact persons (demonstration nurses) during operation in the form of 2nd level support.

Service description

General information

Planning and implementation of auditorium media technology

  • Basic equipment of the central teaching rooms: In case of a fundamental need for modernisation or equipment, which concerns the media technology in all corresponding rooms, the kiz applies for the central funds to finance the measures (as a rule at the presidium of the university). A detailed bill of quantities is drawn up and, together with the ZUV, a call for tenders is issued. In individual cases, external companies are also commissioned with planning tasks.
  • Coordination of communication between all parties involved in construction and equipment measures (users, building management, building authorities, the engineering office commissioned by them, electrical company, media technology company, central workshop, ceiling builder).
  • Contact person for the executing media technology company for technical questions regarding the installation.
    Acceptance of the media technology: Documentation, functional tests, if necessary control of troubleshooting, instruction of the lecture nurses and transfer of the components into regular operation.
  • In the case of the institute's own rooms: advice and assistance in determining requirements, preparation of a cost estimate for the user as a reference for planning or applying for funds.


  • 2 x annual proactive maintenance and quality control with regard to the functionality of the technical equipment. If necessary, wear parts such as beamer lamps, batteries and connection cables are replaced.

Operation (2nd level support)

  • 2nd level support for questions and problems of the local contact persons designated by the faculties, usually lecture attendants, who have to provide 1st level support (user instruction on site, troubleshooting).
