Media Services AV and Event Support FAQ

Champ Support

How do I request AV support for a campus event?

Click here to go to the EMS system where you can request audio/video services for your campus event (microphones & PA systems, LCD projectors with laptops and screens, etc.).

If you are requesting services for an event you did not personally book in EMS (such as a class scheduled by the registrar), and/or you would like to discuss what technology may be appropriate for your needs, you may contact us for assistance (802-860-2710, champsupport@champlain.edu).

PLEASE NOTE: We ask for advance notice of at least one week for AV support requests in order to schedule the appropriate staffing (particularly for events outside our standard business hours). For questions specific to using the EMS system you may contact the Conference and Events Center (802-651-5957).

How do I request assistance if I am experiencing technical difficulties with the AV equipment in my classroom?

Call us at (802) 860-2710 (or x2710 from any campus phone) during our business hours and we will dispatch help immediately.  If the issue is not critical you can also report it by e-mailing champsupport@champlain.edu to open a service ticket.

Can I receive training on the technology in my classroom?

Absolutely! We typically offer drop-in trainings in late August, or you may contact us at (802) 860-2710 or champsupport@champlain.edu at any time to schedule a one-on-one session.
