How to guide: installing a TV monitor in your department
This page provides details for installing a TV monitor if you are in the Medical Sciences Division. The following can be used as an outline or a starting point when creating a plan for installing a screen in your own department
Requirements to install a screen vary based on your building and department, if you wish to invesitgate further please speak to your line manager and the Facilities Management in your building.
Do you require a new network cable, plug point and holes drilled for wall mounts/backboard/TV brackets? If yes and your department is based at the John Radcliffe Hospital, contact the estates team (firstname.lastname@example.org) and ask for a “New Works Request” document for you to complete so they can quote for the work and book it in. If your department is not based at the John Radcliffe, please contact your relevant facilities team.
You will need a live connection to the University network and you’ll need to know the switch and socket number that your TV Monitor(s) will be connected to, so in the event of them not working you can quote this information to the IT Help desk.
Ensure you have some TV slides of events, new papers, grant deadlines etc prepared in advance so they be displayed as soon as your TV Monitor(s) is installed. See example slide layouts below. Thereafter agree a frequency of how often you will update your slides.
