*AV and Video Requirements*
Carl Karsten (@nextdayvideo) is the chipy AV and Video organizer. He needs
to know if your place has any of the following. If not, talk to him in
advance so that he can make preparations to bring equipment.

*Presenter *

   - (something that works) Podium - Something for the presenter to stand
   behind and put their laptop on.
   - (yes) VGA Monitor on a small table near the podium - this will be what
   is being displayed by the projector.  It is nice if you have it, but not at
   all a requirement.
   - (yes) Power to podium so the laptop doesn't have to run on batteries.
   - (yes) 15 pin VGA cable from podium to projector.  (not HDMI)
   - (yes) Projector and screen

*PA System*

   - Amp and speakers - built in or freestanding.  Even if this is not
   needed for the audience to hear the presentation (which is hard to
   predict), it is needed to get good audio for the recording.
   - Wireless headset - presenters will typically type, it is hard to hold
   a mic and type.
   - Hand held mic - The MC needs something, and often it will be handed to
   people to make a 30 second announcement.
   - Unbalanced audio input from laptop - once in a while the presenter
   will want to feed the audio from their laptop into the PA system.  Holding
   the hand held mic next to the laptop speakers is often good enough.

*Recording Station*

   - (yes) Front Of House table 30' from podium (This is where the
   recording will happen.)
   - (yes) It needs to be big enough for 2 people with laptops
   - (yes) power to table
   - (carl to supply mics) Balanced line level between PA and table -
   either from or to, depending on who is supplying mics.
   - (maybe) Wired ethernet from podium to table.
   - (maybe) wired Internet connection  - 1.8mbs for streaming. (optional)

*Additional Information needed*

   - Where can AV equipment be unloaded? ( Loading dock south side )
   - Can you provide volunteers to meet us to help unload equipment? (yes)
   - What are loading doc hours, and who is a contact for the loading doc?
   (will email)
   - Where can a jeep SUV be parked during the meeting? The jeep is used to
   bring equipment. (maybe)
