AB Tech provides sound and lighting services to organizations affiliated with or planning events at Carnegie Mellon. Most events are on-campus, but we also assist with a few select off-campus events each year.

We can assist your organization's event in a number of areas:

AB Tech does not officially provide video services (including projector/screen rentals, video recording/filming of events, playback of slideshows, DVDs, etc.). If your event requires these services, we may subcontract cmuTV or another local production company at an additional charge. Similarly, AB Tech does not own any backline equipment (guitar amplifiers, drums, keyboards, or other musical instruments), but we are happy to help coordinate the appropriate rentals through a local backline rental company.

What we need:

What we charge: Our charges are based on the configuration of equipment being used and the personnel required to run your event. Thus, the cost of providing technical support for a show varies with the size and complexity of the event. Shows that require outside rentals typically cost more than those that do not. Recognized student organizations receive more heavily subsidized pricing than other organizations. You will receive a customized quote once we receive the details of your event.

How to submit a request:
If you are interested in having in AB Tech provide technical support for your event, please fill our our event request form. Expect a reply within a couple of days; if you don't hear back from us within a reasonable period of time, feel free to follow up with another email (we get a lot of requests and occasionally one will be misfiled).
