Service description

Planning and implementation of lecture room media technology

  • Consulting and needs assessment
  • Preparation of a cost estimate for the user as a reference for his funding application. In individual cases, external companies are also commissioned with planning tasks.
  • Once the user has secured the financing, a list of services is worked out, including material requirements and process planning.
  • Requesting offers from external companies and passing them on to the user so that he can carry out the purchase.
  • Coordination of communication between all parties involved in construction and equipment measures (users, building management, building authorities, the engineering office commissioned by them, electrical companies, media technology companies, central workshops, ceiling builders).
  • Contact person for the executing media technology company in case of technical questions regarding installation.
  • Final inspection of the media technology (documentation, function tests, if necessary control of troubleshooting, instruction of lecturers) and transfer of the components to regular operation.
  • Investment recommendations: If it turns out during operation that a new investment makes sense, the user is informed and, if necessary, advised with regard to a new acquisition. The decision on this is made by the user, as he is responsible for the financing.
  • In the case of a fundamental need for modernization or equipment, which concerns the media technology in all corresponding rooms, the central funds for financing the measures are applied for by the kiz (usually at the university presidium).

Operation and maintenance

  • Proactive maintenance and quality control of the technical equipment twice a year. If necessary, replacement of worn-out parts such as beamer lamps, batteries and connection cables.
  • Training or instruction and 2nd level support for questions and problems of the caretakers designated by the faculties, who have to take over the 1st level support (user instruction on site, troubleshooting). If there is no caretaker available, instruction or troubleshooting may be provided directly by members of the Communication & Multimedia Infrastructure team.
