For students and teachers of the Royal Conservatory it is possible to borrow technical equipment. This is (still) free of charge. Microphones, flash-recorders, cables, video cams, adaptors, DSP equipment and much more gear can be borrowed. It is important though to make reservations in advance. Items can only be borrowed when it is needed for educational or school related projects. Find here a list of the equipment that can be borrowed.
When concerts in the KvBz or Asz are in need for sound technicians, the electronic workshop can be of assistance. We take care of the PA system within the Conservatory. It's important to provide concert information in time; at least 7 days before the beginning of the concert. The extra gear that is needed for the performance, should be reserved on time also.
New analog and digital electronics is designed for Art, Music and Dance. Sensor interface design, new generators, multimedia installations, assembly programming and much more. Check http://www.ipson.nl
To provide in the enormous need of MiniDiscs, CDs, videotapes, batteries and cassettes the ewp also functions as a little shop. Students (and teachers) can get these supplies for a very low price.
What's in the name? Of course the ewp is also a workshop. Broken equipment is being repaired and old equipment is being restored. Students can also make and test their own projects here (under supervision). If you want to make your own project, drop by and we can help you out.
All electronic audio/visual equipment inside the building is supervised by the ewp. If there is any defective apparatus, the EWP will try to solve the problem and, if necessary, buy new equipment. So if you find something broken or defect within the school, please report it to us.
In case students, teachers or departments want to have a copy of a recording - video as well as audio - or convert it to another format, the EWP is able to do that for them. We are no copy centre though. No big quantities are being done.
Technical information/ advice
The EWP also functions as a technical information point for the whole Conservatory (and sometimes for others too). Students, as well as teachers, hope to get an answer to the most diverse kind of questions.
Network related problems - e.g. email problems, network login problems, are being taken care of by the network administrators, Bas Kalle and Sander Beenen. Of course we can help out with computer related problems if needed.
