Special Equipment

It is possible to use your own complete sound system in the ARC. We can provide two electrical hook-ups for you to use, which includes one single-phase 100 amp outlet and one three-phase 200 amp outlet.

Lighting System Technical Notes

  1. Our lighting fixtures are set up so that we may effectively serve all events we host. As such, we do not offer an option to move these fixtures.
  2. If there is plenty of time before AND after an event, slight adjustments to the lighting may be possible. Most of the time, this will not be the case due to time limitations between events.
  3. Our system is versatile enough that if an event group wants to bring in their own console or computer with lighting software and hardware, we can adapt to allow the event’s lighting designer to patch into our system.
