Lighting System Technical Notes:

Special Equipment Brought in by Performers

It is possible to use your own equipment or complete sound system in Jim Henry, but we do not recommend this option since we are unable to supply any power except the 110 volts that is found on stage.

Technical Notes

  1. Other video configurations may be considered if time allows before AND after an event. When events are scheduled closely together, it is difficult to re-configure the video system, but we will work with the Event Planner to find the best solution possible.
  2. Other computers may be brought in for PowerPoint or some other presentation program. You must bring your own VGA adapter if a Mac is being used.

Lighting Technical Notes

The auditorium is not equipped with a lighting bar. Only the house lighting is available.

Emergency Situations

In case of power failure, an emergency generator will power a few emergency auditorium lights and exit lights. The generator does not supply electricity to the sound and stage lighting. North Carolina State law requires Event Planners to notify event attendees of the location of emergency exits in their meeting space.
