Welcome to the Equipment Room

We call it the EQ Room – a great place for you to start all of your productions and have many of your questions answered. If you’re actively using the facility you’ll probably get to know the folks in EQ pretty well. We’re here to help you with equipment reservations, cameras, studios, editing, all that good stuff. We’ll also help you get started with your production, help you to make choices about the right gear to take with you and ask you what you’re working on and how the shoot went. If you’re working in the facility, we’ll try to help you problem-solve any technical issues you may be having – we don’t claim to know everything, but we’ve got plenty of first hand trouble-shooting experience.
