Ad hoc Technical Support

Ad hoc on-site technical support can be provided at a cost, charged to the organiser (with a minimum of 4 hours). Due to its nature, the service can not be provided by the on-site support staff but will be covered by additional external techncians.

The technicians are primarily responsible for managing and ensuring the functionality of the devices and equipment within the conference room. This includes tasks such as setting up audiovisual equipment (laptop, screen, projector, microphpones, audio mixer, loudspeakers, etc.), testing connectivity, and providing technical support to the aforementioned equipment during the event.

Please Note: while the technicians can assist with the setup and troubleshhoting of Teams, Zoom or similar video conferencing software, their responsibility does not extend to the management of the online event invitation, start of the online event nor to the recording or storage of the event footage, which are the sole responsability of the event organiser or their designated staff.

In situations where the recording of an event is of paramount importance, an ad-hoc professional recording service at an additional cost can be provided (see further below).


Requests for ad hoc technical assistance need to be filed in due time via the Events Booking Database and financially settled by contacting [email protected] accordingly thereafter.

The presence of a dedicated, specialised A/V technician is recommended in particular for events happening towards the end or outside of EUI working hours.


A/V Recording and Web-streaming

A/V Recording service ensures that all aspects of the event are captured on camera according to your requirements. This service guarantees a high-quality recording and backup, alleviating any concerns about potential loss or technical difficulties.

The Web-streaming service is the live (real-time) broadcasting of events on various web platforms (FaceBook, YouTube, etc.) or Third-party streaming interfaces like Wirecast, Procaster, Adobe, etc. This service may be additonal all previous ones.

Streaming an on-premise event entails coordination among different Units, as follows:

  • Streaming an event: A/V technicians (this service)
  • Porting the audio/video stream into EUI’s YouTube (or other corporate) channel: Communications Service
  • Publishing the stream on EUI’s webpages: relevant Web Editor (of said page, if any) or Web Unit
  • Creation of logos and titles for the stream: Design Unit of the Communications Service

Please Note: it is up to the event organiser to liase among all the parties involved.


Both services are chargeable, should be introduced in the Events Booking Database in due time and settled financially by contacting [email protected] accordingly thereafter.
