(AVS) is responsible for Audio Visual support services
for both the ARC Campus and the Sacramento Regional Public Safety Center (SRPSTC)/McClellan Center, and Audio Visual support for the ARC Natomas Center.
Audio Visual Services and Request Forms
Please note: Many of the more popular pieces of equipment, such as video-data LCD projectors and laptop computers are heavily booked. Please arrange for equipment you need as far in advance as possible.
If you are unfamiliar with the equipment that you are requesting, please arrange for a short tutorial session on its use prior to your checkout.
The person requesting the equipment is responsible for picking up from IMS and returning it.
If a staff member is going to borrow equipment after 5 p.m.(M-T), they need to bring their staff ID with them when they come to IMS. If they send a student, the student must bring a student ID. The doors are locked for security but, there is a buzzer at the front door to IMS (South entrance to the Student Services Building).
IMS provides setups of screens, projection equipment, and public address systems for both indoor and outdoor special events at ARC.
Please try to let us know of these events as far in advance as possible, particularly since they may require our coordination with ARC Maintenance or other campus service departments to insure their success.
NOTE: Computer projection requires an LCD projector not an "overhead" projector.
Please be as specific as possible. Our ability to assess the extent of the problem and estimate repair time is largely dependent on a specific description of how the equipment behaved.
IMS will contact you if additional information is needed & we will make every effort to correct the problem as soon as is possible.
Instructional Media Services
IMS will contact you if additional information is needed and we will make every effort to complete this installation by your requested date.
Instructional Media Services
IMS provides only direct, single-camera video recording. IMS provides only the in-camera DVD for the original recording and one standard DVD copy for the requestor.
We cannot provide video editing services.
IMS provides video duplicating services exclusively from VHS or DVD to DVD format only.
You must be able to provide an original in DVD format (preferably) or VHS. Because of the difficulty in maintaining quality in copying, we do NOT recommend copying VHS tapes recorded in extended play (6-hour mode).
Fill out the form below, print it out and bring it to IMS along with your originals.
