About the digital Arts sharing Program

The Digital Arts Sharing Program (DASP) aims to address the detrimental lack of functioning and affordable projectors in the city of Calgary. Through a successful funding application to the Calgary Foundation and the Government of Alberta’s CIP Program, Ghost River Theatre is proud to be embarking on a game-changing new initiative to provide the arts community of Calgary with an important tool for innovative and inventive theatre-making. This program, managed fully by GRT, will offer accessible rental rates, provide training, and address the gap in access to projection technology that is currently available.

In larger terms, it will allow artists to continue to utilize this form of artistic expression to enrich their practices and expose Calgary audiences to an important creative tool for aesthetic storytelling.

Signal Converter & Cable

BNC Cables.jpeg

Each projector kit comes with a HDMI to SDI adapter and 100 foot coaxial cable. This adapter allows you to send a video signal over long distances using very affordable coaxial cable (RG-59) with a BNC connection. Because the projector has an SDI input, the conversion is only necessary once. 

Note, in order to use this method of connection, you need an HDMI signal out of your playback device. Don't worry if you don't have one though, there are options.  See F.A.Q. for more details.  

 


Ceiling Mount

The included mount kit allows the projector to be hung from a grid. The extender rod adds 16.45" - 24.33" to the drop distance. This mount does not come attached to the projector but is very easy to install. See our Learn section for more information.

  • Mini display port to HDMI adapter cable (6 feet)

  • HDMI cable (3 feet)

  • AC cable

Before Reserving

  1. Make sure you're aware of what is included with your rental.
     
  2. You need insurance before renting from us. This unfortunately is not negotiable and the equipment cannot be picked up without proof of insurance. Want to know more about this? Read here.
     
  3. Please understand that we are an arts organization and not a large rental company. We do not have permanent staff working in rentals, and thus have to bring in someone each time a rental is made. For this reason, we ask that you kindly show up at the agreed upon time to collect and return the equipment. 

How to Reserve

  1. Check that a projector is available for your desired dates using the calendar below, (read how the calendar works first please.) Any requests made less than 2 weeks ahead of desired date may not be able to be accommodated, (we'll try, but no promises sorry.)
  2. Fill out the rental form. 
  3. We will contact you within 3 business days. At this point we will request a 50% deposit that can be paid by e-transfer, credit card or personal cheque.
  4. More information is available in our Rental F.A.Q.

CANCELLATION Policy

It costs us time and resources to process requests and cancellations. Cancellations may also prevent us from renting to other people.  For these reasons we have to charge a cancellation fee.

  • Any cancellation made before 1 month prior to rental date will be charged $75,  the remaining deposit will be refunded. 
  • Cancellations made later than 1 month prior to rental date will be charged $100 the remaining deposit will be refunded.  

How to read this calendar

There are four projectors available. 

'Busy' means that one of them has been booked. If there are two 'busy' dates on the calendar, then two projectors are already booked, but two are still available.The only time there are no projectors available is when there are four 'busy' items on a given calendar day. 

If you are having problems viewing this calendar, it may be because of your browser or installed extensions. Try opening this page in another browser.

BUSY DOES NOT MEAN THERE ARE NO PROJECTORS AVAILABLE. READ ABOVE
