Hi All,

This log is where I will now document any relevant AV cabinet works and log ongoing issues. This happened previously via moodle. My aim is to update this periodically with important ongoing works, rather than for minor day to day issues, although any relevant ongoing cabinet problems will go here (as well as on the log sheets in the rooms).

Current Works:

  • AV Lectern Update
    • In light of the damage and various issues that have arisen with the 6 AV lecterns on site I have undertaken a program of improvements to hopefully improve user experience and limit damage to the systems in the future. This includes: Fixing rear panels to prevent tampering/removal, Adding additional power sockets to the side of the cabinet, Adding a new shelf over the KVM to prevent tampering, tidying/lengthening of cables to prevent damage and all new signage to provide quick self help guides and make reporting issues easier.

  • Summer Maintenance 
    • As with every summer I undertake a full check of all AV systems on site at KCC (c40). This is a full check on functionality, replacing/repairing where relevant in preparation for the next academic year. This year i'll be going slightly further in removing the Mini Disk players from all cabinets and improving general tidiness.

Future Works:

  • AV Cabinet Replacement
    • We are currently looking into alternative cabinet solutions for the AV (ideally something with a desk to facilitate laptop use). The aim is to purchase one new cabinet over the summer to install and test. If successful this would then go to a capital bid to replace the systems in the remaining rooms.
  • G66 Move
    • The G66 equipment is possibly being moved to a new space over the Summer. This is still TBC.
