Portal Containers are our iconic structure, built in re-used shipping containers. What once transported cargo, now transports our digital selves.
6800lbs/3538 Kg (includes technology and Container structure)
Portals lock with multiple padlocks.
4 hour physical container install; 6-8 hours technical set up (for optimal setup conditions, including testing,, Portal should be on-site at least 48 hours prior to launch)
1-2 hours technical de-installation; 2 hours trucking removal via crane/forklift
Generally transported via rollback or flatbed truck. A video of our standard installation is here, photo and video of custom installation (crane, forklift, casters, etc.) is available upon request.
Shared Studios provides 4 ballistic rubber pads or plywood to protect ground. If the ground or path for truck placement is particularly sensitive, special arrangements can be made with cranes.
At least 5 mbps upload and download (15 recommended); hardwired patch or ethernet cable preferred. Host site is expected to provide unless other arrangements have been made.
8ft x 8ft x 20ft/2.4m x 2.4m x 6m
Access to at least two (2) standard 15 amp power outlets. They do need to be on separate circuits. Plug type is local to fabrication site/country. In the US, this is "3-prong" grounded 5-15P NEMA plug.
Shared Studios provides an ADA-compliant ramp for wheelchair access.
Portal arrives with 25ft (8m) of extension cable and 25ft (8m) of ethernet cable. Ethernet cabling beyond the above, as well as any necessary power extension cables, should be provided by host site unless otherwise noted.
Shared Studios provides speakers and a microphone designed for standard conversation and interaction through the Portal. Output via 3.55mm headphone jack or RCA is available. Our standard package does not come with a PA system, amplifier, speakers, boom stands, XLR or ¼” audio input or output, instruments, instrument or vocal microphone, or associated audio equipment. The Portal also does not come with an external display. Shared Studios can provide this or these items, and others, at an additional cost. Please contact us to discuss.
