    How to reserve a Multimedia Room

    How to plan an ITV Event

    1. First check the availability of the ITV rooms. In St. Paul, you may use either NM L212 or LIB 302, in Minneapolis MEC 2300, at LECJEC 204, at Midway J. If the rooms are available, reserve them through the scheduling office. Be sure to allow a half hour for connection before the start of your event for each room.

    2. Contact METNET. The METNET form is available on the web at http://www.metnet.edu/video/itvreqform.html. You will be asked to provide the E164 number, the IP address, the room's number and the name and phone number of a contact person for each location. Submit the form to METNET. Directions are on the form.

    3. METNET will send an e-mail to IT Desk asking Metropolitan State to accept the event.

    4. The IT Desk will then put the ITV event on the calendar and assign someone to be in the rooms on each campus to make the connection at the time of the event.

    Equipment Reservations

    Equipment for all locations except the Minnapolis campus can be reserved by submitting an online Multimedia Equipment Reservation form. Equipment reservations for the Minneapolis campus can be reserved by using MCTC's multi media request form.

    Reservations must be made a minimum of 48 hours in advance when using the Multimedia Equipment Reservation form. However, since the quantity of equipment is limited, it is highly recommended that reservations be made as far in advance as possible. You can contact the IT Desk if you have any questions.
