Use of Spilman Auditorium requires an Audiovisual technician at $250.00 per day.

Ridgecrest Conference Center now offers a camera system for events in Spilman Auditorium. This camera system consists of three high definition cameras that are in fixed-mounted manned positions (left, center and right camera angles), a Production Room (off stage out of the auditorium for ease of communication and space), three front screens and a rear confidence screen for stage display. We offer these systems and staffing by our trained technicians in several different pricing packages in order to better accommodate the budgets of our various events.

Package #1:
$100 per day + $250 per day Spilman AV Fee
Rental of RCC cameras
Event provides camera operators
Event has supervised used of production room & 4 screens
RCC tech runs camera switcher

Package #2:
$400 per day + $250 per day Spilman AV Fee
Rental of RCC cameras
RCC tech staff operates cameras and the switcher
Event has supervised use of production room & 4 screens

Packages may not be altered.

In addition to these packages, groups still have the option of bringing in their own camera systems and fully operating them on their own with their own staff (no additional charge; $250 daily Spilman AV fee still applies). However, if a group decides to opt out of using the Ridgecrest camera system packages in order to bring their own, they will not have access to the Ridgecrest production room and all operations of our screens will not be available (including limited configuration of the way things are displayed on those screens). Other considerations include that power and location are limited to inside the auditorium. Due to fire code regulations and safety considerations, groups are no longer able to operate a “video world” set up outside of Spilman Auditorium.

Other options for groups include running their own media (from the Front of House booth, not from the Production Room) or reserving one of our RCC techs to operate the group’s media from our Production Room (this requires all scripts, song lists and other media be provided in advance so that RCC can provide the most seamless operation possible). All requests must be made 2 weeks or more before the group’s arrival date. RCC will not be able to accommodate last minute requests (within the 2-week time-frame) for use of the camera equipment.

If interested, please also ask about our streaming and recording options (additional charges will apply).
